: Just sent a message that there was just a little (4.1 or so) earthquake here in Southern California. The answer I got back from around the world was sort of "did the earth move for you" ............ I hadn't thought of that connection, and wonder about the history of that particular thought and phrase.
Dunno who said it first, but whoever it was, was setting the standard I expect.
