I got a call that a big-time movie producer wants a shake table. I directed them to McMaster or UofT. I'm becoming a regular Mr. Earthquake of Ontario!
This sets me thinking of a plot where they need a shake table.
Down in an underground lab in the old abandoned Toronto subway station, scientists stick two wires into the ground. "Oh No! We're getting signals, and they're aimed right at the Toronto City Hall! A big earthquake will shake that thing apart, since it has been so weakened by Rob Ford! What to do? What to do?"
"Quick Watson. To the Shake Table! " Once there, they quickly set up a paper mache model of the City Hall. "We must shake it!" "Ah, there's the problem, it needs more glue in the corners. We are saved!"
