• Think back to a time you watched Independence Day, Armageddon, or some other epic disaster movie. When a disaster is imminent or has just occurred, how do people act in the movie?
  • Pretend that we are in class, there are 250 students in our classroom and a fire breaks out in the classroom next to ours; how do you think our classroom of students would react? Would we run frantically toward the exit signs? Would students turn to the large lecture professor and wait for instructions from her/him? Neither? What do you think people in our class would do?
