Yeah, Cesar. I'm glad everyone's ok, but I can only smile at the reactions to those who don't experience earthquakes regularly.

(Note: I lived in California most of my life.)

[BREAKING NEWS]

Prototype Subwoofer shakes Ontario and Quebec.

Axiom's Prototype EP36000P Subwoofer is believed to have caused a 5.5 magnitude earthquake earlier today.
Shortly before the event, a large power drop was detected on the power grid near Dwight, ON causing several homes and businesses to go out of power for a few minutes.
The Prototype device show here below on a clandestinely acquired picture is believed to be powered by a dedicated 90 Terawatt circuit. Its output on a 20hz reference sine-wave is also believed to generate winds of up to 120km/h.
Earlier this week, Axiom employees were seen leaving the test laboratories with serious cases of horizontal hair due.

Deny, deny, deny!

I maintain it was caused by earthshaking response to the new Series 3 announcement.

Yeah. It was a cute little rumble. The highest magnitude quake recorded in this fault zone (western Quebec) was 6.4. These are very old faults, and for the most part not active.

Underground subwoofer tests. Hmmm.

I thought that "test tower" looked more like a drill rig than an antenna mast.

Hey Cam. I remember that article coming out shortly after the last 'big one' in '92/93.
