Wow, yeah I remember that Hyatt Regency walkway collapse. That was just crazy.
I remember it too. The title is click bait though, it didn't change engineering at all. The result was changes in the process of reviewing building plan alterations. It is a great example of how important structural engineering is, and why any alteration to construction should be carefully reviewed for unintended consequences. Didn't Kansas City also have a coliseum roof failure? If I remember correctly, in that case no one was in the coliseum at the time.

Googled it, Kemper Arena -- two years before the Hyatt walkway failure.

An acquaintance of mine is a structural engineer. He always talks about how stressful his job is. Yet I always wonder why, then I recall that, yeah, if he doesn't do his job right he'll likely end up killing a bunch of people.

And to think Madonna was right all those years ago, 'Borderline, feels like I'm going to lose my mind. You just keep on pushing my love over the borderline....'

Your post is a unicorn Blue's post. Agree with everything you state.

But...I say go ahead and unionize. That will speed their autonomous driver technology. This is the same as those idiot burger flippers wanting $15hr...go ahead and give it to them so I can use a machine to order sooner.

And when all those people are out of work? Who supports them? If not it's crime city. There are always consequences and repercussions. Stop being to myopic.

There's no point to a service like Uber unionizing because then they've just become another cab company. Self-driving cars are going to eliminate these companies anyway.

Dragon's Dogma is one of the worst games I've ever played. It was just terrible. And these BiowarEA games aren't much better I'll trudge through them when they hit the $5 mark because that's all they're worth regardless of their budget. All corps like EA/Ubisoft/Activision know how to do anymore is regurgitate the same old shit. It's boring.

Given how poorly the game was received $35 is a joke for a "sale" price.

Well the storm was a fizzle where I live. My understanding is that it's really only the southern most part of Ontario that got hit at all and most of that is lake effect. Sounds like the US NE seaboard took the brunt of it as usual.

Speaking of getting older and getting screwed by Cons.

Republican health care bill raises premiums for older, poor Americans by more than 750%

Sure hope all those assholes in the rust belt understand now just what they voted for.

According to Department of Homeland Security data reviewed by NBC, the count of cellphone searches by border officers grew from less than 5,000 in 2015 to almost 25,000 in 2016. Agents searched 5,000 devices in February alone, the department reported.

What do you imagine it will be for 2017? The police state is growing.

$23 million for failing. Boggles the fucking mind.


Several forces are conspiring to ensure that many Americans have to work well past the traditional retirement age of 65. People are living longer, their retirement savings are inadequate, and Social Security reforms are almost certainly going to require it. The San Francisco Fed says that the share of the older-65 working population is projected to rise sharply from about 19 percent now to 29 percent in the year 2060.

Yet, another reason jobs need to come back from overseas. And yes, you should always lie about your age in order to get your foot in the door.

Technically games have always been rentals. I'm fine with that so long as they don't expect me to pony up full price for 99.9% of them.

There is a 7 day free trial so I'll give it a whirl at some point if only to check out Teh Last of Us and RDR one more time. They're not really forthcoming with any pertinent info. Doesn't mention bandwith requirements anywhere - so I searched and it's 5mbps min, tho most peole seem to think you need a lot more than that. And it doesn't state if the prices $20 per month/$45 for 3/$100 for 12 is in Freedom dollars or not.
