* In UsefulNotes/SanFrancisco and other earthquake-prone cities, a mild quake (III or less on [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mercalli_intensity_scale the Mercalli scale]])often gets no notice at all apart from the local news.

* "Open carry" is the law in several US states, meaning that unconcealed firearms are legal in public. Notably averted by [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UYKQJ4-N7LI media coverage]] of protesters outside a presidential event. A [[http://articles.cnn.com/2009-08-17/politics/obama.protest.rifle_1_protesters-weapons-assault-rifle?_s=PM:POLITICS Secret Service]] spokesman noted that the individuals would never have gotten in close proximity to the president, regardless of any state laws on openly carrying weapons. A venue is considered a federal site when the Secret Service is protecting the president and weapons are not allowed on a federal site, he added.
