Earthquakes are arguably the most terrifying of all the natural disasters due to their unexpected nature - unlike tornadoes or hurricanes, it's nearly impossible to plan for an earthquake or know when one is about to strike. This particular earthquake, which occurred in Japan in 2011, was followed by a tsunami and the infamous Fukushima reactor meltdowns. It was the most powerful earthquake ever recorded in Japan.

And of course, we gotta give props to the brave person who filmed the whole terrifying event from an airport!

Rejected Comedian Gets What He Deserves After Verbally Abusing Date

Comedian Shane Hoban has had better days. So was a former date who got a lot more than she bargained for after telling the Boston resident that she didn't wish to pursue a relationship with him. Her respectful text is honest and even generously nice. She even wishes him luck at his upcoming show. That kindness is met with alarming aggression, abusive language, and disturbing threats. Fortunately the internet has helped make sure Hoban gets what is coming to him. 


Shane Hoban comedy show cancelled after he uses abusive language with date | Hi! Sorry I didn't shoot you a text back yesterday - just want to be honest I'm not sure I feel a huge connection here and I don't want to waste your time tonight (and I'll likely have to hang around this networking event tonight to find potential clients). I'm gonna have to pass on meeting up for drinks. Really wishing you the best and good luck on your show on Friday! You're not even my type either you're some dumb

Potluck Twitter Story Is A Cringey Tale Of Zero Seasoning & Extra Salmonella

The whole "white people don't season their food" thing sometimes feels offensive to those of us who lack melanin and worship the spice cabinet, but this Twitter story is proof that the stereotype exists for good reason. Twitter user @cavebeauty experienced the horror first-hand at a company potluck when her colleague brought raw chicken and a deep fryer to the event. Not only did he decline seasoning the chicken before frying it, but he was handling the chicken with his bare hands and touching stuff without washing them. Disturbing. Hopefully you'll read this nightmare long after digging into lunch. 

Funny twitter story about dude bringing raw chicken to company potluck, cringe | tweet by caveofbeauty My coworker brought raw chicken to the potluck today. And yes, yes he is. I'm literally shaking n.I need my inhaler. he's just casually walking around the room touching things after touching RAW CHICKEN. This entire place is contaminated. Oh my god Update: He just bit into one to see if it's cooked. It's still raw.

Tumblr Thread Reveals True Meaning & Full Versions Of Classic Proverbs

I can't remember the first time I was told that "curiosity killed the cat" but it was probably by my mother. The petite neurotic woman was convinced that at any moment something terrible was about to happen to one of her brood. While it's been many years since I realized the adage was antithetical to a rich and full life, it wasn't until this Tumblr thread that I realized there was more to the proverb. As it turns out, the phrase is not meant to ward off healthy curiosity. The thread doesn't stop the splainin' there, either. We've never felt more sure of ourselves regarding the use of tired proverbs. Knowledge truly is power.

tumblr thread about the full version of classic proverbs | curiosity killed cat is actually not full phrase actually is"curiosity killed cat but satisfaction brought back" so don't let anyone tell not be curious little baby okay go and be interested world See also: Blood is thicker than water- blood covenant is thicker than water womb. Meaning relationships formed by choice are stronger than those formed by birth.

Fascinating Twitter Thread Sheds Light On Beethoven's Complicated Life

As laypeople, we have the tendency to put brilliant artists on a pedestal, forgetting that they too are human just like us. However, more often than not they face the same sorts of adversities as the rest of us would, and sometimes making it big just comes down to sheer luck.

Composer Ludwig van Beethoven was certainly of no exception, as this fascinating Twitter thread written by classical pianist doodlyroses will explain. It may be long, but trust us when we say that it's completely worth the read.

Interesting Twitter thread about Beethoven's life | tweet by doodlyroses Another thing people overlook they get hung up on deaf-guy-writing-music thing; they see music through an abled lens which deafness is something Beethoven overcame, not something which deafness actually led unique creative decisions!
