An example of how laid back SoCal is

Souther California experiences a 6.9 earthquake and what do we do? We tweet about it - some of us even brag about how cool it was.

Apparently, it's the wildfires that get us freaked.

A couple of things.

There are not "too many" high rise buildings where one would expect spectacular destruction. Cracks on walls, a few things on the floor, and general amazement is more of what one could see around Southern California.

After the Northridge quake, building regulations - yes, government mandated - went into effect.

Every new building had to be built according to some earthquake safety rules.

Old homes were suggested to be upgraded on key points, like the foundation, major joints, piping and so on.

Insurance companies FLED off California after the Northridge quake.

Which should tell us 2 things the wingnutz don't like:

1: Government mandated regulation and enforcement is required for the protection of the public at large.

2. Insurance companies don't give a shit about your problems when they arise. They will spit on your face and tell you -that is your coverage limit. Fuck you very much-

Even though the movie takes place in San Francisco which is of course Northern California I always loved the towering inferno. But I always laugh at the thought if building that building in an earth quake zone.

Well OJ's home town is San Francisco

It was the perfect fit...


Now if it was a real life situation rather than a movie I sure those good grades OJ recieved from USC would come in real handy.
