Earthquakes and Work
I know the earthquake was a few days ago but I haven't had a chance until now to write about it. I was leaving my chiropractor's office (every stuntman has one) I was on the top floor of a building and before I went down the elevator I decided to use the restroom. I was on the toilet when the quake hit and because I was in a tall building the rocking and rolling was accentuated. I jumped off the toilet and went back to the doctors office because you never know if the earthquake is going to get bigger and I didn't want to get stuck in the bathroom. Had I not used the restroom I would be in the elevator when the quake hit. I guess my small bladder helped me. Kinda funny place to be when an earthquake hits.
I am doing some water stuff this week for work and I have to jump off a 20 ft plat form into water. When I was younger I use to jump off bridges so it is funny that bridge jumping has ended up being work training.
When Jon was younger he was a junior cadet for the police which paid off this week. Jon was the stunt coordinator for a low budget movie and ended up also being the technical adviser for the police. Here is a picture of Jon and a some stunt guys he hired for his movie.
