We have with us tonight, Mr. Irwin Mainway, President of Mainway Toys. Uh, Mr. Mainway, your company manufactures the following so-called harmless playthings: Pretty Peggy Ear-Piercing Set, Mr. Skin-Grafter, General Tron’s Secret Police Confession Kit, and Doggie Dentist. And what about this innocent rubber doll, which you market under the name Johnny Switchblade? Mr. Mainway, I’m afraid this is, by no means, a very safe toy.
Pick an album you love or used to listen to a lot. Link a lesser known song in that album.
One odd thing you hate doing:
For me it's trying to write down somebody's email address, I'm just dyslexic enough that's it's a real pain, and about a 1/3 of the time I get it wrong.
This is the Great ShakeOut Earthquake Drill. You are participating in the largest earthquake safety drill in U.S. history. Practice now so you can protect yourself during a real earthquake.
This is an earthquake drill. Right now, DROP, COVER, AND HOLD ON.
Unless you are driving,
DROP where you are, onto your hands and knees. This position protects you from being knocked down and also allows you to stay low and crawl to shelter if nearby.
COVER your head and neck with one arm and hand
If a sturdy table or desk is nearby, crawl underneath it for shelter
If no shelter is nearby, crawl next to an interior wall (away from windows)
Stay on your knees; bend over to protect vital organs
HOLD ON until shaking stops
Under shelter: hold on to it with one hand; be ready to move with your shelter if it shifts
No shelter: hold on to your head and neck with both arms and hands.
Now look around. What objects might fall or be thrown at you in an earthquake, that you should secure in place now?
Finally, strong earthquakes may generate a tsunami. If you're near the beach during an earthquake, DROP, COVER, and HOLD ON, then walk quickly to high ground when the shaking stops.
This drill is over. Visit ShakeOut.org for simple steps to help you survive and recover from a major earthquake, including how to secure your space. Thank you for taking part in ShakeOut!
Noice! Damn, I ruined it...
I always thought it was Maimway, not Mainway.
I can still visualize Dan Akroyd with the sunglasses and the phony New Jersey accent adjusting his tie knot every so often.
