    CHORAGE, Alaska (CNN) -- A 4.8-magnitude earthquake jolted the Anchorage area Wednesday, the West Coast and Alaska Tsunami Warning Center said.

    The quake occurred at 8:19 a.m. local time (12:19 p.m. EST) and was centered 10 miles southeast of Anchorage, the state's largest city.

    The warning center in Palmer said the quake was 17 miles miles beneath the Earth's surface. No injuries or damage were reported.

    it's rather humorous and sad at the same time that u guys aren't worried if people were hurt....just the iMacs!

    On the other hand, if your house caught on fire, would your newly installed iMac come to mind ahead of family members?

    In an earthquake, I would take my PISMO and run over everybody else to the exit.

    In a fire I would run in to the house, get my PISMO, and do the same thing.

    In a flood, I would take my PISMO, rape it in a plastic bag and claim to the roof of the house.

    In an earth colition, I would take my PISMO, the some ones car (mine got stolen 2 weeks ago), then a plane to Orlando FL, and would get in to the space shoutle to save our lives.

    If Satanas comes to burn us all in hell, I would take my PISMO and go to church and pray.

    I guess we are clear about the realtion about my PISMO and I.

    Ps.(Sorry my english is bad hehehehe).

    Reealllly likes his PISMO.... but does PISMO share the sentiment?

    Typos can really make a difference in a sentence's maming, huh?

    "I would take my PISMO, rape it in a plastic bag"

    now that would be an interesting picture. haha, just kidding. you know, a little bit of humor, it's funny. oh boy, now even I don't know what i'm saying.

    I think i'll just shut up.

    4.8 would pretty much have to have been right under the city to have been anything more than merely noticable. Even if it had been, the damage would have been minor. It was probably over before they realized what was happening.

    I find that this works best by booting your pee cee from the top of a tall building or cliff.

    yes it would be an interesting picture. actually raping your computer is a contradiction...seeing as to it that a computer has no will. heh!
