My class is working on a natural disaster power point, and we are trying to find a video of an earthquake to include.

I love the fact they are suspicious ... but I don't know. Has anyone seen this video? Fake? Any idea where it was taken, if it is real?

1,000% fake ... just by the looks of it.

It looks perfectly legitimate to me.

I found some footage of an earthquake that devastated the west coast in the late 70's, although no one seems to remember it for some reason. I think your class will find it useful.

It is absolutely, beyond a shadow of a doubt, fake. It's not even particularly well done - it takes about one second for it to become readily apparent the car that will ultimately fall into the hole was imaged in. I won't even go into the cracks that 'appear'.

But say the rouse holds until the earth opens, doesn't it seem odd to you that a car with forward momentum drops straight down and that the road collapses so cleanly, without rocks and dirt and asphalt continuing to fall into the gaping hole?

Not after watching it for 15 seconds, while trying to keep 27 kids from downloading porn.

Happily, the porn is probably real, although the class should know that pizza delivery guys hardly ever get laid in real life and women never beg the plumber to nail them on the kitchen table.

Perhaps. But the babysitter is always looking for a little action.

-Oh, that's my friend Shari. She just came over to use the shower.
-The story is ludicrous.
-Meine nommen is Karl. Ich bin expert.
-You must be here to fix the cable.
-Lord, you can imagine where it goes from here.
-He fixes the cable?
-Don't be fatuous, Jeffrey.

To be fair, I was 100% sure that this was fake:

Use this one. I was about 400 yards from here when this earthquake hit the SF bay area in 1989

Well, if the pizza delivery guy is packing an extra stick of pepperoni, his chance of getting a non-cash tip increases exponentially.
