When I hang a picture, it's a harbinger of destruction. I'll be sure to notify local seismologists next time....
BEFORE (Put up by me this weekend.)
AFTER (Unhung by nature yesterday.)
Yesterday, my apartment looked like the result of an angry toddler ramage; books down, pictures down, objects all pulled off the tables and shelves. I half expected to find a juice box in the rubble, or at the least a blankie. C'est la vie. Anyway, not much harm done, considering no one was hurt (though you wouldn't know it to read the headlines - "EARTHQUAKE OF THE CENTURY!").
So let this be a lesson to you: purchase IKEA, and earthquakes will only wreck cheap damage on your home.
