4.1 Rchter occurred in the Bristol Channel this afternoon! Alas poor Culm (and the Gower limestone)., seems the elements have it in for you at the moment! Whether any crags have been affected remains to be seen.

Surely you mean magnitude rather than Richter, ahem :-)

In reply to Jonny2vests:

The magnitude is measured using the Richter Scale (can be the moment magnitude scale, although I would doubt the BBC are referring to that scale). :)

Why not? Given how much of a battering the weather's been dishing out lately, it sounds like people need some fin to cheer them up!

We should dolphinately scale back the terrible fish puns. Otherwise the sole porpoise of the thread is lost.

Oh, I don't know ... I'm no brain sturgeon where comedy's concerned, but I thought some of those were quietly brill-iant in their own way. Certainly beats some of the things we keep herring about on this forum ...

Agreed. But the fish puns might already be too deeply entenched in the thread.

In reply to crayefish:

Not too much of a pain in the bass to trawl through the puns, surely?
crayefish - on 20 Feb 2014

I wrasseled with that thought but came to the conclusion that everyone is just being shellfish and ruining the thread.
