    Cool video/movie taken four days before the earthquake completely destroyed San Francisco.

    Hard to believe they did not have anyone directing traffic.

    That traffic isn't too bad. You should see Market Street now.

    Do people still drive in San Fran? I thought it was overrun with hipsters on bicycles and the occasional Prius.

    What's so amazing is how people drove like that and people just walking about, but nobody gets hit. I'm sure it happened, but today, people would just stand in the way and then get hit. I think people had a lot more common sense back then, because if you didn't, you didn't live very long.

    Did I see Fienstien and Nancy running around the background with Suffrage signs so they could run for Congress?

    I think it's interesting that in the earthquake aftermath video everyone is just walking along, almost like a normal day. There is no visible panic, no looters, no gangs, etc. I wonder how different that might be today.

    They had looters. It was shoot on sight.

    In 89 Santa Cruz had "stick on sight."

    I am sure the next one it will be "verbal warning on sight."

    My Grandparents were asleep in a second story apartment when the earthquake hit. They said they were thrown to the floor and walls were falling away. They started walking towards the bay and saw bodies in the street. They boarded the ferry and moved to escape the fire. Never moved back.
