Is this the second Rolla Boom today? I thought I felt one earlier as well, like 11 am or something.

I saw the windows shake on the west side of the library. My girlfriend jumped about a mile, and my first thought was "this will be on seek when I sign in later".

I feel as though Rolla has conditioned me to not care about random booms. This could prove to be unfortunate when a bomb goes off and I shrug it off as a fireball climbs into the sky behind me.

Maybe I could come off as a badass.

I love how the guy at 8 minutes "ducks and covers" right in front of his moving hay baler. Way to be safe there, Jimmy. You are sure to survive a nuclear holocaust.

I have no idea what the hell you guys are talking about. So I post a question: what the hell are you guys talking about.

Context: I live way north of town, so that might be why I didn't feel anything.

It was way bigger this time. Usually don't feel anything over here by the Junior High and it shook the windows.

I'm on the edge of just making a sticky, half of me is annoyed by these (when they come from people who know what it is), and think its hilarious to see it since I have left rolla. Maybe a new rule from here on out, if there is a sonic boom give it 24 hours and let the new kids try to figure out what blew up in the experimental mine.

Since I asked, and failed to search the forum archives, I will do the dumpster diving.
