Earthquake in LA

Thinking Out Loud
29 July 2008

Over the years, we've tried very hard to build a sense of teamwork within this company...To convince everyone that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.

Up until today, I really believed we were a team unlike any other. Leave it to a natural disaster to set me straight.

As you may have heard, we had a 5.4 magnitude earthquake here in Los Angeles ... our cameras were rolling as Mark and Kevin were discussing the importance of teamwork within the IDE team...here's what happened:

Wow, I've heard of extremely stressful incidents turning your hair white, but never making it grow again. I think we should donate Mark to science.

Cheers, Julian

This video had me in stitches i cannot believe that wasn't staged.

All i can say is thank christ there was no serious damage to the building otherwise a really quick thinking Mr Miller (comedy genious) could of found himself out of a job.

Hi Scott,

You cannot believe that wasn't staged, eh? Well, if it was staged, rest assured that we could do it in a way to convince you it wasn't. :-)
