So I went to a news article to read more about this, and it was all "biggest earthquake in Oklahoma ever" and "blah blah blah", and then I got to this part:
At least one person was taken to a hospital in Prague with minor injuries, he said.

The man hit his head against a wall when he tripped and fell while trying to run out of his house, Bennett said.
Hahaha, way to go there Shemp!! Real smooth.

Diane - I'm glad that wasn't me. I didn't freakout I was just like "Wow, it's an earthquake!" I was surprised how long it lasted.
(About 30 seconds but it seemed longer) It felt like the house was on a trailer moving down the highway and we were hitting big bumps.

So, were you tempted to run outside?

Diane - No, I had consumed several libations by then and was feeling quite brave.
