A first
It seems that I experienced my first earthquake yesterday, as I was sitting down to dinner with my family (including Tanstaafl):

The magnitude-4.1 temblor struck at 7:43 p.m. and was centered 8 miles east of Coachella, which is about 20 miles east of Palm Springs, according to a preliminary report for the U.S. Geological Survey.
We were in Palm Springs.

I have to say, it's little wonder that political thinking in this state is so messed up—considering the ground's movement to be a normal event has got to screw with your mind.

Congratulations. It only gets to count as your first earthquake if you actually felt it not just if you were in the general vicinity.

Saying that I "experienced" it implies that I did indeed feel it.

Since that wasn't clear: I did indeed feel it.
