I was in San Frnacisco with my brothers and our old college friends. We went to the penthouse apartment of one of the guys we used to go to school with. B_____ was joking with me about something when the whole building seemed to start up like a giant vehicle. Our friend was driving it out towards San Francisco bay harbor! We approached the water, and I looked south, off to my right. The city appeared to be in flames -- and they're weren't any skycrapers present. "What's going on?" I asked the driver of the building. "We've gone back in time," he replied. "What you're seen there is the old San Francisco earthquake of the last century."
