They had how many years to get this right?

I bet South Korea won’t have these problems in 2018.

I mean doorknobs glued to doors... really??

Well . . . . . . . at least the cat is OK. I wonder if that’s the same craftsmanship that goes into their highly touted weapon systems.

Reminds me of Las Vegas. A thin veneer of glitz.

Cats are really gremlins.

my cats used to like to prowl around in the basement suspended ceiling, but I thing they outgrew it when they realized that sleeping was more fun.

Boy, the Russians really know how to build things. I just hope the cat was OK. Didn’t appear to be any hoomins around to get hurt, just ticked off when they saw the damage and the cause. My little rescue girl Kefira is busy right now running around like a little nut job, making happy whirring sounds and pouncing on a fallen houseplant leaf. SHE knows how to have a good time, without bringing down the roof!

Not to be a wet blanket, and in the interests of accuracy, it’s appears to me that it’s not a “roof” that is falling but a suspended ceiling. Not the same thing at all. . . But it still should support a ten-twenty pound kitty.

That's a black cat, so it is probably basement cat. I think the Dutch sacraficed a tuna to him to win all their speed skating medals.

How come the date on that video says October 2013? Is that supposed to be recent?

Press reports out of Sochi claim that it was ‘Grumpy’ cat that did this. Seems that Putin refused to take a selfie with Grumpy cat and that PO’d Grumpy Cat.

I’m glad the cat escaped from the ceiling. Remember the poor kitty that was lost a couple years ago in an airport ceiling?
