    ****. ****** how? High fever? Throat?

    I'd be scared to go and get exposed to people who have it around me.

    He hit his head. I think he is talking about concussion type stuff

    Not from the virus. From hitting his head and passing out during the earthquake.

    I know this is a huge word of mouth thing and maybe a bit out there but.. My friends mom knows a seismologist at the UofU and I guess he text her just to warn her family and get ready. He thinks there is going to be a 9.0 before lunch. Its 10:19 right now.

    do whatever you want but I wouldn’t be going anywhere near any health facility unless I’m at deaths door.

    Ice your head. Keep tabs on it in the coming days and weeks but I'd be hesitant to be around people. FWIW, my dad had a major cycling accident a couple summers ago. No hematoma showed up at the hospital. Memory loss doe. A month later he had major headaches...he went to his doctor. There was a hematoma that must’ve been very slow to develop. Had to be admitted to a hospital in Philly and stay overnight for four days. They almost drilled a hole in his skull to allow swelling to go down but did not. I forget why. At its worst, his brain had moved 18mm which I didn’t even know was possible.

    At this point I wouldn't be surprised if the wicked witch of the west and her flying monkeys came to cause hell on earth.

    Are you kidding? Some people's brains rattle around in there like a marble in a hot tub.

    This is going around as a Mormon myth. A few emails have come from Ward leaders and stake leaders. I have heard this from 3 different people already (this would be #4) all with different info and different authority figures. It's a classic Urban legend in situations like this. Some of them are talking about the end days, one from a local Bishop even referenced the second coming. It's all Mormon myth hogwash.

    I'm not gonna go in unless it's absolutely necessary. I think my face broke my fall, I have bruising on my cheek bone.

    That’s seismologically impossible on a Normal Fault in the Basin and Range province. So, lol at that ********.

    18mm is over an inch though. That’s a lot!

    I've always heard we could have something around an 8. That such a thing is a >1000 year event, but also that we are more than 500 years overdue.

    I think 8 is near the top end of what’s possible.

    No it’s not. 18 mm is .71 inches.
    10mm per centimeter. 2.54 cm per inch (or 25.4 mm per inch).
    Still a big movement though.
