I heard of this new thing, it's called an elevator. Ever heard of it?

14, don't be an idiot. If there was an earthquake, an elevator can get stuck or the rope can break and you'll be flying down a few stories. You're an idiot. I just want to punch a hole in the wall.

I'm talking about using the elevator to get back up since it's not a real earthquake and OP can "barely walk"..........

24- But that is not the main point of the FML. There was no indication that OP had not done so. The OP only said they ran down 21 flights and can barely walk. Never mentioned they limped, crawled, turtled up the damn flights.

Omg, you east coasters flipping out about an earthquake that resulted in very little damage, no deaths, and only self inflicted injuries... It was a 5.8. Big deal... Come see me when you sit through a 8.6 with out even getting worried, like most west coasters, and you will have some right to be worried

49- you're also a dumbass. Why the fuck are you bragging that where you live has massive earthquakes? I hope one of these massive earthquakes that you brag about happens and a piece of wood hits you on the head and you realize how stupid you are. I punched that hole in the wall.

53 - a 5.8 is only like 1 minute of light shaking. Nothing to get worried about, as it is required by law that all buildings built be tested to up to a 7.5. So even if it was OP's first earthquake, the most that would have happened is a book fell off a shelf, or maybe a picture fell off. The point remains that there is no need for op to react that way, and run down 21 flights of stairs. Besides, if OP got tired from running DOWN stairs, than they need to stop eating the Twinkies, as they are probably fat enough that each of their steps produces an earthquake. Running DOWN stairs is the easiest form of exercise you can do, as gravity is helping you.

81- you gotta remember that in the east coast people are still terrified of 9-11 thats why when theres even slight shaking there might be evacuations so she did have to run down all those stairs

123, the fact that is says the OP is in the USA gives away the fact they aren't from New Zealand... It'd say New Zealand if they were and likely include, "this happens every day FML."

The main rule in an evacuation is to calmly walk unless of course you're in immediate danger. OP could have endangered somebody in a real crisis running down the stairs like that I have no sympathy for them..

Figure of speech. Op's legs are burning from strain, and are not literally on fire.
