"Do you honestly believe this?" I do--it's what I meant. Not the Mercalli scale bit, but that I was attempting to describe the relative intensity. Geez... I hereby apologize to all offended pedantic AC pricks for my gross transgression. The quake felt "moderate but not strong". Happy, ACs?

I certainly understand the frustration with filling in an online application, but if that's the biggest obstacle to getting the job, it's not that great of a job. Look at the fields required, copy them over to a text file, take your sweet time filling out the responses, and the online part can be a quick copy/paste. It's not that hard. Sure, find better ways to do it, but don't pretend it's this insurmountable challenge.

Some cats hunt and other don't because their mother needs to teach them that skill. All cats are born wanting to chase little moving things. It's the mom that needs to bring back prey and teach them the bite-neck-and-whip-it kill method they use. The difference between a hunting cat and a non-hunting cat is being taught by another one. We have had many vicious, animal-killing, *fixed* cats.

Never trust a computer you can't repair yourself.
