Failure in China. I’m shocked. Next thing we will hear is that their new aircraft carrier was sunk by dolphins.
Maybe I am an evil person, but I just wish Thomas Friedman could have been in one of those two cars.
Was Willie Green aboard?
....And suddenly millions of liberals across the world felt great sadness!
Promoting publicly funded high speed submarine transportation for the masses no doubt.
...along with a number of other people who will remain nameless
Two coaches of a bullet train fell off a bridge after derailing in east China’s Zhejiang Province late Saturday, local fire fighting sources said.
The details of casualties are unknown at the moment.
The train numbered D3115 from the provincial capital Hangzhou to the city of Wenzhou derailed at the section of Shuangyu Town in Wenzhou at 8:34 p.m., said fire fighters from Wenzhou.
Rescue personnel were rushing to the scene.
Maybe it was going the wong way.
Maybe something got lost in the dialect translation. Oh, said the Captain, you’re supposed to steer AWAY from the lighthouse?
Every time I read one of these stories I think about the fact that the new San Francisco - Oakland Bay Bridge was built in China....
A quarter million San Franciscans and Oaklanders every day. I honestly don’t know whether I should laugh or cry....
Sounds like China needs to rebuild their infrastructure...
There’s a reason it was excerpted down to 1 sentence
nope. especially if you were on one of the cars that went off the bridge
Of possible interest.
Next thing we will hear is that their new aircraft carrier was sunk by dolphins.
Navy porpoise attack story. I know a guy who claims he was with a Navy unit that trained porpoises to kill human swimmers and divers. They were used in Gulf War 1. The porpoises were all male and wore a harness and carried a bang stick. Theyd ram the swimmer with the bang stick. Every time the Navy used them, the porpoise found and eliminated the target. Then, hed jet off to find a pod of female porpoises and have sex. There was no getting the porpoises back until they were darned good and satisfied. (Its probably the uniform harness. No species can resist a Navy guy in uniform.)
Paging Willie....... are you out there Willie?
Paging Willie Green!!
This calls for another round of executions! Go China! :’) Thanks nuconvert.
Willie Green must be beside himself. Unless he was on this train at the time.
