eduKayt's Tip of the Day 4/26/10: Po Po Shut Us Down

Do you know where your house or building's gas shut off valve is? Didn't fucking think so! If there is an earthquake, besides getting your ass on the ground and under something and protecting your brains and all, the next thing you need to do is find the gas shut off valve. When buildings shift in a quake, a lot of times the gas line moves and you can have a gas leak on your hands. All you need is a wrench and you can turn the valve to OFF. If you have your own house, you should know where this is. And if you're in an apartment or condo building, you should ask your management company. Turning off the gas can prevent explosions. Your building might not collapse, but if there is a leak, it can still fucking blow up!

Consider yourself eduKayted.
