Not sure if you guys have caught a lot of these videos on YouTube where people in the middle of the earthquake are just recording, as if there's NOT a natural disaster taking place at that particular moment. Maybe it's just me, but I think at about the time the floor starts oscillating and load-bearing columns inside the buildings shake like my legs did the first time I ever ummm... was just a few inches from the hole for a certain, almost gimme (bald ) eagle putt, I'd drop the camera and do whatever I needed to do to be safe. Kinda reminds me of what Goose said during Top Gun - The defense department regrets to inform you that your sons are dead because they were stupid.
Seriously, am I the only one that thinks this is just about the dumbest trend I've ever seen? Because of work requirements, I was a block off the beach in Gulfport, MS, as Hurricane Katrina came through (in case you didnt know, there were lots of other places besides New Orleans that were affected, but I digress), and the best way for me to describe it was like living in a Die Hard movie for like 24 straight hours. But at no point in time did it even cross my mind to grab a video camera and hang out by the window. It just wasn't in the cards. I don't know, maybe it's just me, but I think some people's priorities are wayyy screwed up. I really hope when I have kids, they're not that damn stupid.
