My guess is I will never get to drive on the bridge currently under construction

After the whole “pontoons full of cracks, gushing water doesn’t mean our pontoons aren’t watertight” argument, we have this from California. After driving over the Bay Bridge so many times, I am considering a drive down to Oakland to cross the replacement once complete – we’ll see if that happens, too. The SF-Oakland bridge authority was able to prove the bogus welds weren’t, as far as they cared to look, but I can’t help but be reminded of another incident where engineers were overruled by management. Mother Nature is a bitch, and physics isn’t taking your call, either.

New underwear to the boom, please

Video gets scary around 0:35 to 0:45. Nothing to watch after that; before that, you get to see an AWACS nearly take out a tanker.

$70,000 judgement against Lancaster Arms

To the surprise of exactly nobody in the AK47 market, Lancaster Arms was hit with another judgement; this time, for $70,000. I will use my internet funball and predict exactly $0 of this settlement will be paid, he’ll open shop under another name, and the cycle will begin again.

So the bad part

was seeing a cop in uniform get cuffed, not that he, you know, wanted to rape kids. Understood.

It’s good the door had a lock

Wouldn’t want the kid having an asthma attack to kill you while he’s rolling around on the floor, unable to breathe.
