All right, let's keep this in perspective.

How long does a truly huge earthquake last anyway -- MAYBE 5 minutes, tops.

Meanwhile, decades, even centuries go by with no problem. So unless you're the type who fusses over the effects of earthquakes, they are a tiny fraction of the things we should worry about.
