Earthquakes are serious business. Mother Nature does not fuck around. All that being said, I LOLed upon watching this video of these two KTLA anchors responding live as a 4.7 magnitude earthquake hit Los Angeles this morning. They straight dived under that desk. And his face! (In all seriousness, we hope everyone is a-okay out there on the West Coast. Having grown up in San Diego, I know all too well how scary earthquakes can be. Duck and cover!) [YouTube]

This is probably the best thing ever, and I’m legitimately baffled as to why New York didn’t think of it first. This is the city that never sleeps; people need cupcakes at all hours! I hope someone around here catches wind of the idea and opens up a copycat … preferably Buttercup. I love those. [Perez Hilton]
