FEMA run amok.
Imagine the flow of government money. School field trips, cop training exercises...maybe they could pass a law requiring every employee of an office building to visit the museum.
It would never work if it were like a movie theater where individuals would decide to pay to see it.

Why would I?

While perhaps a noble idea, this is really a strange thing, thniking you can simulate an earth quake. T he kind of earthquake that causes major damage can't be replicated because there's too much ebergy and the results are devestating. There's not a safe way to do this, unless you have a minor event and that will give false impressions about safety.

Nice try but not even cloase.

@Why would I: It's a start. We hear about these things happening, but it's much easier to empathize if we have more experience. I like the idea, even if it won't start off perfectly. I do wonder how it'll be sustainably funded. But we might be less cold-hearted as a nation if we understood more about pain in people's lives, in this case, about the pain brought by disaster
