How neat that there are three remaining survivors of the 1906 San Francisco earthquake, and that one of them was on hand today for a commemorative ceremony.

Seems that'd mostly freak people out, though apparently that's when they've actually been doing their annual ceremonies. Goofy.

I was poking around earthquake news just now after seeing Twitter rumours that the San Andreas Fault twitched today to mark the anniversary. Haven't found anything clear about that, but I do see a 16-year-old girl survived a (presumed accidental) fall from the Golden Gate Bridge -- and 20 minutes in the water before she was rescued.

Guess it's time to find something to eat. An hour and a half until sundown means I have to stop eating bread.
