A sour ride.
Reminds me of an old joke. Punchline is "Don't make waves. Don't make waves"
"The Bond villain responsible remains at large."
At least there were no bats.
Were they building an underwater secret layer for a supervillian? Or George Soros? But I repeat myself.
Whoa stage collapse at the Indiana State Fair. Five dead.
They must felt like the US middle class watching the dollar and their assets with it going underwater and hoping for an election before it is too late.At least some one planned to rescue them instead of to kill them as if they were twin babies in amniotic fluid scheduled for partial birth abortion by Planned Parenthood.
Annie Proulx can write another novel now.
Good thing the Koch brothers and Karl Rove were there to save them, as they are unselfishly sworn to do!
Yikes! That's awful.Thank God they were saved....and no, this doesn't justify over-sized public employee pensions that aren't fully funded.Only an idiot would think that.
Get Smart had the same predicament in a phone booth.
When I was growing up there was a serious flash flood in our small city. The saddest story from that time, which is hard to ever forget, was what happened at a nursing home. I think somebody was evacuating two elderly residents and the elevator kicked into emergency mode and did what it was programmed to do - descend to the bottom floor and stay there. Unfortunately the bottom floor was underwater and the people all drowned.Actually, there's something about it on the NOAA site. It was a nurse's aide and three people in wheelchairs. Like I said, really hard to forget that mental picture.
When seconds count, as they say...Very lucky for those men to live in the era of cell phones.And the real reason people should carry them.
Many years ago I was playing D&D with some friends and four of us came to find ourselves trapped in a room with rising water, a hole in the ceiling, and a rope dangling from the hole within easy reach (don't ask how we got there, that sort of thing happens in D&D all the time). We literally spent 20 minutes arguing amongst ourselves about how we were going to get out of that one. That's the general flow of a D&D session.
When you work in construction you never know what the day has in store for you. On big jobs the unpredictability is part of the allure.In Manhattan, building a 60 story highrise structure on a footprint no larger than itself concentrates the dangerous actions of many trades into a small area all at once."Eyes in the back of your head" is a must, every day.
