Re: [californiadisasters] What an Earthquake Does to a Building, Visualized (video)

Interesting, but 'multiplied by 300'...was that just the forces, or also the response? IOW, the total displacement in one direction was about 10cm...is that the actual amount, or 300x the actual?

Poorly done if a goal of understanding of the average person was the point. :( 

Fun to watch, and the residual movement was indeed impressive...as the graph settled to normal the building was still moving pretty actively long after I expected it to calm.
