    Assessment of building management's emergency procedures during earthquake warning in Dubai

    1. Evacuate building in a timely fashion - Pass

    2. Direct evacuees to stand in shade under metro line as it is 35 degrees outside - Fail (how is standing under a structure weighing about a zillion tons safe during an earthquake warning?)

    3. See the error of their ways and direct everyone to the pool bar for free refreshments until alert is over - Pass

    I know that it is a struggle to survive on social welfare but given that you claim ABSTUDY, Age Pension, Assistance for Isolated Children, Austudy Payment - Carer Allowance, Carer Payment, Disability Support Pension, Double Orphan Pension, Maternity Payment, Newstart Allowance, Parenting Payment, Pensioner Education Supplement, Rent Assistance and Youth Allowance, I'd assume that you'd get out for a meal every now and again

    It would be a very frustrating event for Social since for the majority of the conversation he would have to decipher what each laugh stands for.

    wow.......there are only 2 westerners in your company? Given the demand for westerners in Dubai I would have thought that a company employing 4000 people would have a fair sprinkling of westerners

    Probably never hear the real story

    Always shake my head at the media coverage given to the Thredbo disaster where 18 people died compared to stuff like this
