Triumph: At least they didn't dive under the desk.


That's what they are supposed to do.  Go on a TV set and look up.  See those lights hanging up there?  They aren't always the most secure things in the world.  A desk is a pretty good thing to have between you and 50 pounds of metal and glass falling from 15 feet over head.

Pocket Ninja: Haven't you ever seen an action movie, subby? What happens when a grenade goes off right next to the hero? Right -- the blast throws him backwards through a glass window and he lands in the street, winded, and barely rolls out of the way in time before a light pole comes crashing down on him. Now, tell me -- do you think he just jumped through that window because he wanted to?

No, don't be stupid. He was sent through that window by shock waves. Shock waves are like normal waves except they travel through the air. And, newsflash: an earthquake is a LOT more powerful than a hand grenade. It's, like, ten times as powerful. So if a simple grenade blast's shock waves would send you through a window, don't you think an earthquake's shock waves could be felt in a helicopter? Can you at least acknowledge that possibility? I hope that you can, and maybe in the future you should consider not being such a smug snarkmongerer and learn something before you post here.


Earthquakes are not EXPLOSIONS idiot..

To be fair, they didn't know he was in the air yet. But when are we ever fair?

drewogatory: Christ, it was a farking 4.4. When did Angelenos become such pussies? I woke up, looked at the ceiling fan, said 'huh, earthquake" and went back to sleep.


The 90's.

Also, when an earthquake starts you don't know if it's going to be a 4.0 or an 8.0.

They should have if they had any brains. Oh, the cameras were rolling so they shouldn't save themselves but die while keeping you entertained.

Welcome to Fark! Have a snack.

Yep. Someone is unacquainted with Pocket Ninja.


Or someone playing along. I think you all fell for it.

jst3p: Triumph: At least they didn't dive under the desk.

"It felt very strong."

4.4? Whatever.


At 4.4 it really depends on the building you are in.  A 4.4 in a high rise is downright scary due to the level of sway.
