New Delhi just experienced an earthquake which according to certain
n()()bs news channels was measured 6.6 on the Richter Scale. And at times like these you realise how awesome XKCD is.
Confused? Let me explain.
I was blogging when everything started shaking. It was uncanny. Being my geeky self, rather than throwing my laptop and running for my life, I kept it down carefully (for I am an optimist too) and ran outside. Once the initial shocks (that of the earth and that of my own mental self) subsided I went on to facebook and updated my status. I was one of the first ones to do it. In a short amount of time facebook and Twitter likewise were flooded with posts pertaining to the earthquake.
So where does XKCD come in? Well here.
I won’t be a hypocrite here. I posted a couple of status updates too. I’ll share them with you.

17 minutes after the earthquake
So you survive an earthquake and the first thing that comes to your mind is to update your status?
18 minutes after the earthquake
6.6 on the Richter scale. Just hope it wasn’t 6.66. Or 6.666
19 minutes after the earthquake
For girls (and some boys too), the earthquake was almost orgasmic.
UDPATE: The earthquakle was measured 4.2 on richter. Stupid India TV I tell you.
