When an earthquake strikes, you would expect people to grab necessities like a water bottle, their wallet, their phone or their laptop while exiting a tall building. But in reality, humanity’s quirky sense of priorities shines through in such situations and you get to see the bizarre things people would rather carry with themselves in a life-or-death situation!
For example, Morocco was hit by a deadly 6.8-magnitude earthquake recently which killed nearly 300 people across provinces and municipalities of Al-Haouz, Marrakesh, Ouarzazate, Azilal, Chichaoua and Taroudant, reported NDTV. Even amidst this disaster, there is one incident that is making people facepalm.
One man fled his house shirtless after the earthquake hit and what’s the one thing he is seen carrying with himself? A PlayStation 5.
For a person who is really into gaming, this man is a hero who made a heroic exit with a swagger that only a true gamer possesses! His prized possession, the PS5, was like the last piece of pizza at a party and he held on to it like a hungry hungover man.
This man is an inspiration. The protector of pixels. And people online couldn’t help but laud this man for setting his priorities straight. Here’s how some of them reacted:

If you know your priorities right,
Not even an earthquake can shake your resolve
