Just a reminder: Pat Toomey sold you out and allowed the FCC to vote to strike down Net Neutrality 3-2 today.

Please join me in saying "Fuck Pat Toomey".

FUCK Pat Toomey

Just a reminder that Senator Bob Casey DIDN'T sell us out and stood up for Net Neutrality when the time came.

But old gullible people think he is tough on borders which must mean he fights terrorists. I'm not joking, that was the main message of his campaign and he must have sent out 20 flyers a week to each house in Philly, lined with a camouflage border, that made it seem like he was a military-minded politician. Instead of fighting terrorists, he fights our basic freedoms. FUCK THAT GUY AND THE LIES HE RODE IN ON!

Ah yes border control, clearly the most important issue facing Pennsylvanians.

Morning Philly!

Morning Philly!

This sub has had the best god damn pictures in the last few months.

Great picture! But please tell me you weren't standing in the middle of the tracks. Cause that's hella dangerous.

Just for clarification as someone else pointed out how dangerous it is to get on the tracks, this picture was taken by a friend of mine who works for Septa and was supposed to be on the tracks at the time. Just a beautiful shot and I wanted to share. I believe he posted it himself to the South Silly Facebook group. Don't climb tracks kids! Remember, Safety Third!

Is it because cell phone cameras are improving, or are there just a bunch of really talented photographers hanging out on this sub?

I was on the trolley 2 days ago! It's awesome! The driver said he decorated it himself

Yeah! All the interior holiday decorations on Septa services are done by employees with their money. It's really cute and fun.

That’s the best trolley! I’ve never taken it but I love how festive it is.

I was on a similar trolly that was decorated for halloween. The place was ringed with purple and orange lights and cobwebs and stuff. The driver even rigged it so that speakers were playing spooky sounds, and would turn off the lights between stations in the tunnel.

Lazily trying to figure out if there was just an earthquake.

There was an earthquake.

Hi everyone!

Wow, what an earthquake! Definitely not something normal with you east coasters right?

So let's first run through what we know, and then into some more informal things about stress and concerns.

What you need to know: Source

Magnitude: This was a 4.1 on the moment magnitude scale. Originally a 4.4, this quake jumped to a 5.1, before coming back down to a 4.1 magnitude.

Depth: Currently sitting at an 8.1km depth, making this quite a shallow quake. It's no wonder so many of you have felt it! It does remind me of the Virginia quake a few years back.

Location: Currently 10km East NorthEast of Dover, Delaware. So not quite off the coast, but close to it.

Intensity of the Shaking: The USGS Shakemap currently shows Strong (VI) shaking on the Mercalli Intensity scale. There are currently over 6,000 Did You Feel It Reports which have the quake rated as having Moderate (V) shaking. Remember, if you felt it, please Fill out this report!!

Pager: GREEN.

Expected Fatalities:

Expected Fatalities Probability (%) None 69 1-10 29 11+ 2

Expected Costs of the Earthquake:

Expected Costs (USD) Probability (%) Under $1m 65 Between $1m-$10m 30 Between $10m-$100m 4 Over $100m 1

Aftershocks: So with this being a 4.1, it's quite a small quake to begin with. However, with that being said, with how far this quake has been felt, I wouldn't be surprised if any small aftershocks feel bigger than they actually are. So just be prepared for similar or less shaking. As with any earthquake around the world, there is a very small chance of this being a foreshock, but with how often that occurs, I personally would not be too worried about it.

How do you feel right now?

Chances are you might have a bit of adrenaline running through your veins or want to talk about how it never happens in this part of the world. By all means, do what you need to do to process and register it, but please be aware that not everyone will process this event like you do.

This is one of the biggest lessons I learned going through the Canterbury Earthquake sequences. Everyone handles these events differently. Some people don't want to talk about it, some people want to spend a week or a month talking about it. So please be aware of people that you're talking to and how their body language is and how they seem to be responding.

Take photos:

Now you might have some damage from the earthquake, which means you may need to lodge an insurance claim. Take photos ASAP of the damaged areas. Dealing with insurance companies can be a pain in the ass anyway, but please take photographic evidence of any damage that has happened and for any changes that later occur to the damaged wall or ceiling or similar. This will help you with your claim later.

Feel free to ask anything.

Stay Safe!

Yep. outside dover

I'm glad other people felt that reddit was the best place to confirm this. My dog was so uninterested in the house shaking that I thought I'd started losing it.

Probably one of the better uses for Delaware ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I commend you for making such an offer, but you might have trouble getting rid of this--there's no chance in hell I'd eat something given to me by the fuckers on this subreddit, and I assume that my sentiments are shared by many others here.

That's nice of you.

I'll take that rainbow chip icing

You're the man. Happy Thanksgiving. Fuck Dallas.

"Koch-sucking" is funny as shit

Looks accurate to me. I can't tell that from the real thing.

No, the real Toomey's forehead is at least 10 times bigger. I hear it grows every time he tells a lie.

Who took this photo of Toomey? Good to see he's looking healthier.

That's what you get out of this? Go outside bro

Where did I put those damn mugs

Is there a part of the city hall display that you feel is religious? Given how sterile "generic American comercialized winter solstice celebration" it is, it fits more as pagan than anything to me.
