Jesus, before showing how edumacated you are on earthquake safety, read what you type out to yourself and see if it makes sense to you. So sitting under a desk will cause the desk to collapse? Yet, you boil your essential point down to a situation that if you're scared of either your books or your roof falling on your ass you should sit under a desk that would get crushed as a result of you sitting underneath it?
lol, most likely typed it wrong. He probably meant
Desk for falling objects.
Doorframe for collapsing roof.
I think there's definitely pros and cons to both, and sometimes it can just
depend on your environment and building strength.
Experts all say a sturdy desk is better.
Although no one should be moving around,
some one might be panicking and come running through whatever door way you're standing at. Doors could swing and close, and through the event, you
might accidentally place your fingers in the wrong place and get them clamped. And bottom line is that it doesn't really protect you from falling objects that might get thrown around.
If your building is adequate from collapsing, then there's really no need to be
by the door frame.
Btw, found this online. lol
Not sure how sturdy this door is though... Many interior doors are hollow.
