    She must be from California to give so few fucks about that earthquake

    If this was my mom, I don't I ever would have smoked pot.

    That mom and kid are fucking champs. When I was his age, my mom would have to hold me like that going through a car wash. Seems really silly now, especially compared to a 9.0 earthquake.

    Why didn't any of the plates fall?

  • Doc_Tronic

    Interesting how not one single plate fell off the table; in fact, it doesn't look like one single plate even budged. A 9.0 earthquake is going to do more than just make a camera shake, it's going to cause serious destruction…look at what it did to all the buildings in the actual news footage.

    Reason they aren't getting under the tables is because its in Japan. They tell you to just ride it out all their buildings are built to withstand those type of earthquakes. Plus the type of earthquakes they get are different then in the US.

    Bullshit to all of you. I live in California and a truly good mother would have gotten her child under the table or in a goddamn doorway. Stupid. She didn’t even shelter his head with her body.

    Like a boss. That woman deserves an award, she stayed cool as a cucumber through the whole thing.

    Thats one bad ass mom!! Way to go Mom! KCCO!!

  • badger

    sorry to say this but thats just stupid.
    Would everybody say she was awesome if the kid got hit by falling debris?
    Don't think so… so next time get under the table please!

  • MrStubbs

    almost looked fake to me. Like a cross between old star trek and the blair witch project. Lots of noise..didnt see a whole lot falling or crashing.

    Good night: terrible camera work. Couldn't they hold it still for even a second. Sheesh.
