This was actually proven false on Snopes
@Darth Varis, I trust snopes about as much as I trust gas station sushi.
@punsnipermark6, Why so? Can you give am example as to why it shouldn’t be trusted? Im legitimately curious what they have done or messed up on thats cause for them not to be used for gathering accurate information.
@Seohn, Most Trump supporters have gone batshjt crazy because the owner met Soros in 2009. Plus you cannot believe everything you read on a single website, you need to fact-check everything yourself.
@Fearless Fapper, that plus the fact that the CEO did a bunch of really irresponsible stuff with his money, married an escort and then started a funding webpage that didn't tell anybody the torrid reasons he needed money
@Fearless Fapper, its true you should always check multiple sources. But it seems lately that when people complain about a site or news source. Its because they are letting their biases dictate can overpower their ability to apply logic to their conclusions. So many lately it would seem. Would rather be wrong and win an argument.
@Seohn, Talking about creditability though. A guy working for Fox said, “When in a feud sometimes you have your own facts.”
My first thought was. If its not true its not a fact. Therefore its a lie. My second thought was. Any rational person would come to the same conclusion. And my third thought was. Why do you all not call it like it is. Why sugar coat it as “their own facts.” If it were anyone else you would have never used the phrase “their own facts” in a sentence to describe someone who was saying things that weren’t true.
They were discussing how the Information Trump was saying about Amazon was wrong. And that because Trump is feuding with Amazon. Trump has his own facts. Even though they were just literally just discussing that what Trump said was incorrect about Amazon and USPS.
You can’t call something incorrect and then turn around and basically say it’s an alternate fact. Thats not what a fact is.
@Seohn, It’s just an easy card to pull out, and we can’t do anything about it. When a black person lose an argument, he’ll pull the racist card, and these days people tend to pull out this card when someone give them a source to back up their argument
“Some people claim that theres a woman to blame... but I know its the engineers fault”
@BennMann, and everyone knows women can’t be engineers
Led by females. Not built by females. Even the workers should know if something is off.
@BeeTheQueen, not the workers' decision to make alterations to falsework or to fück with pretensioning. You're probably looking at a supervisor, an engineer, and a foreman that made those decisions.
@Doctor Krieger, exactly. It would most likely be engineer issue, as workers like this cannot and will not make big alterations to an established plan. Especially civil contractors who know how important it is. They can only do what they are instructed to do as per the plan.
@Richard Cypher, They can f**k up on bolting it together though. Not saying that’s what happened, just that pretty much any level of the workforce from the CEO down can f**k things up.
@Nellybert , they didn't, though. As I said, falsework and pretensioning. This was a disaster that almost certainly came about because they wanted to let traffic continue under the bridge.
@Richard Cypher, well, the engineering of the bridge was sound. Problem is, apparently, they moved the falsework that supported the bridge while it was being built to allow for traffic. This changed the tension on the pretensioning rods, so they went and adjusted them. It's why, if you watch the traffic cam footage of the failure, it happens very suddenly.
@Doctor Krieger, The report hasn’t been completed yet, so can’t be sure - but it does look like someone f**ked up there, yes. My point was just that a project can be screwed up at any level - whether it’s the guy at the top ordering a shortcut to save cash, or the guy at the bottom doing a sloppy job because he’s hungover & wants to go home quick (again, not saying either happened here, just giving a generic example).
@Nellybert , the report may not have been completed yet, but what I described is a near-certainty given the evidence that we do have available.
What I'm saying is that it's pretty clear which level of employees are ultimately at fault here.
@Doctor Krieger, All I’ve seen is news articles, which were short & non-technical summaries (plus something an anonymous Canadian put on YouTube) so I’m in no position to comment on this case in particular. I was just making the general observation that no level of a project is immune to human error.
@Nellybert , AvE, the anonymous Canadian, is a pretty sharp guy, believe it or not. But, yeah, he got that from some experts who took to Reddit to explain what evidence there is and what it means.
@Doctor Krieger, Like I said, I’ve only read a few news articles on it - I’ve seen no official documents, have done no research, and I’m not a structural engineer of any kind - so I honestly wouldn’t have a clue if those guys were dead on the money or talking out of their arses.
I just woke my family up snort laughing at this in the middle of the night!
I hope this is fake, cause I don’t see the reason behind pointing out that they’re female. Like if any other bridge collapses do we just assume it’s a guy screwing up? Lol
I mean.. it most likely would be real because men just truly are better at construction, but sadly it’s fake.
Oh no men hide in fear for the women know how to do construction
@shmohan, obviously not
