Magnitude 5.6 is Not An Excuse for Interrupting Bones

Tuesday night is one of my two "TV" nights. I watch House and Bones.

About 15 minutes ago, there was a small quake. It was a rolling one, and lasted a good amount of time for a little quake. It wasn't even enough to rattle my dishes, so it was really not worth mentioning.

But what does Fox do? Tells us about the earthquake 15 minutes into a new episode of Bones. It couldn't wait for the commercial break? Oh, yes, I remember -- the sponsors would never stand for it, so screw the audience instead.

5.6 magnitude isn't enough justification to interrupt a show. It could wait until the 10:00 newscast. What the heck do I care that someone in Livermore felt it?

There's a big surprise, it was centered just east of Milpitas and Livermore is between Milpitas and Oakland. If I felt it, I'd be surprised if they DIDN'T feel it in Livermore.

Do me a favor, local Fox news channel, don't interrupt my show for anything under a magnitude 6.5.

'Bones' yes, 'Lost' no

I might not be so annoyed if they'd had video of any carnage.

No carnage, no cancel. End of story.

AAARGH! They're interrupting Bones AGAIN!

OK they're showing a map with a dot on it, surrounded by several concentric circles, showing where the earthquake was (thanks, I already know where Milpitas is located).

The talking head is telling us the same stuff she told us last time. And I missed more Bones.

Boy the infotainment services really get on my nerves sometimes.

They better not interrupt House. You hear me KTVU?

Poor widdle MM

Oh, the humanity! First I miss a key scene from Bones, then I get mocked!

Cruel, cruel moderator! How like a serpent's fang ...

I knew you lived near me!

Watch how the news is going to dramatise and play this out! It seems to of ben to much of a rolly polly to have done damage anywhere!

I like how they're saying they have witnesses to interview.

yeah, like everybody in the East Bay.

They just showed a shattered jar of nuts. Wow. Nuts. We're doomed.

Were they cashews?
Those are my favorite, and it would be a shame to lose a whole jar.
You think they might be able to remove the glass fragments and re-pack them?
I'm starting to feel really bad about this now.

No, when they broadcast it, they had a better shot, and it was four jars of olives. Green ones. With the pimiento.

And a hairdressing salon had several cans of mousse on the floor.

It was carnage, man. I can barely talk about it.

And the shoe store?
how many soles were lost?

Are these the suspected culprits?

What if it turns out to be a foreshock to the big one that will destroy all of the Bay Area?

Then will it have been OK?

Well just thank God that the quake did not happen when "House" was on. Those fans are CRAZY (me being one). If they were to interupt "House" there would be riots! mass chaos!

Yes! The poor olive victims of the massive quake!

The houses are still standing! The car alarms didn't go off! Not a single building slid down a hill anywhere!

the horror! THE HORROR!

No. Only interrupt the really important things when there's one or more of the following:

1) Large explosions or fire
2) Collapse of infrastructure
3) Actual human injury or loss of life

Otherwise, leave the TV shows of the intelligentsia strictly alone and save the redundant and not so scary reports for the actual time allotted to news.

He doesn't know what he missed! Emily Deschanel as WW:

She looked quite authentic to Lynda Carter's, IMO.

What starteled me was an aftershock that happened yesturday at 3:55pm a 3.5. It was one big jolt and that is what gets my panties in a bunch!

For some reason the roley poley that lasted for 20 seconds didn't really concern me, but that one jolt got me.

I must have been driving because I haven't felt any aftershocks at all.

The jolty ones are always more scary than the rolly ones.
