Oklahoma rattled by state's largest quake

A 5.6-magnitude earthquake struck central Oklahoma late Saturday night - the largest to hit the state since record-keeping began.
The quake struck 4 miles east of Sparks in Lincoln County at 11:53 p.m. ET, the United States Geological Survey said.
There were no immediate reports of damage.
It was the same area where a 4.7-magnitude quake struck at 3:12 a.m. ET Saturday. By 8 a.m., geologists had recorded more than 30 aftershocks from it.
The strongest quake previously reported was of magnitude 5.5 on April 9, 1952, according to the Oklahoma Geological Survey.

    @you: i think it's more of a love/hate thing. She loves to hate him, and he hates loving her..

    Of course, they'd be the horse's mouth..

    I don't hate him; that would be expending more emotion that I care to waste on him.
    I don't really hate *anyone*.
    I do, however, hate when he's a bully to other people, and when he takes nasty pot shots at my family.

    I'd love it if he'd just leave me alone, that's all.

    The second part of your sentence made me throw up in my mouth a little.

    After reading the racist rant way up the list, I decided I'm averse to b@st@rds myself, especially racist ones.
