"Feel an earthquake?" you can report it at this site.

Now that it appears everyone is safe from the 4.3 earthquake that rattled Kentucky today — prompting media coverage all the way out at the L.A. Times (where they know from earthquakes) — what measures should Kentuckians consider? A survival kit? Check the bottled water supplies? Preparations to shelter in place? Of course.

“Feel an earthquake?” you can report it at this site.

And after that, assemble your over-21 loved ones and responsibly designate a sober driver for The Kentucky Earthquake Social Media Drinking Game (or raid your survival kits, bust out the sleeping bags, and host the Kentucky Earthquake Drinking Game + Pajama Jammy Jam).

You will need:

-reliable wi-fi;

-ample screens for everyone to enjoy (iPads, smartphones, even laptops will do);

-a libation of choice (it should, of course, contain Bourbon; this is a Kentucky earthquake, for God’s sake. Might we recommend the Election Night Old Fashioned or perhaps the Hurricane Sandy Frankenstorm? Recycling is eco-friendly.);

Next: log on to your preferred social media (twitter, facebook, tumblr, pinterest…even StumbleUpon will do).

For one half hour, monitor mainstream media’s social media earthquake coverage.

Sip your drink every time:
-a media outlet asks, “did you feel that?”
-a story of more than 1000 words is linked to recount the lack of damages;
-any reporter mentions the Mayans;
-Biblical weather patterns are referenced by otherwise secular media;
-the Kentucky earthquake is referred to as a Tennessee earthquake (two sips if the Vols are referenced);

Take a drink any time:
-any member of Kentucky media makes a Jarrod Polson joke (“that wasn’t an earthquake…”)
-a reporter states the actual number of people who felt the quake (was it 200?);
-“end of days” or “end times” are mentioned;
-“Zombie Apocalypse” and “Walking Dead” jokes are made.

Take a shot if:

-Hurricane Sandy, Athena, and earthquakes are all mentioned in one tweet;
-anyone names the Kentucky earthquake.

Brew a strong pot of coffee if:

-Jim Cantore begins tweeting from anywhere within 100 miles of you.
