Australians and earthquakes

Being a Kiwi, I'm used to earthquakes. I've grown up with them, done earthquake drills at school, slept through them; they're something that don't phase me in the slightest. So when a minor earthquake shook northern Queensland earlier today (Australia is supposedly 'earthquake free' but gets some occasionally) and there was massive coverage on the news, I found it very amusing. An earthquake of a similar scale in NZ wouldn't have warranted a mention on anything more important than the local radio news.

And I see Arnold Schwarzenegger is running for Californian Governor. How amusing.
