So yeah I was Flicking through the channels, and came across CNN and turns out an Interstate Bridge has collapsed over the Mississippi River. They don't know what caused the collapse, and at last count 6 are dead and many more injured. And I thought to myself I should share this with UG so wow that's horrible..

I live in MN and I saw that on the news. The pics of the aftermath are pretty crazy. I bet rush hour is going to suck until they can fix that, but it really doesn't affect me because I don't live in the Cities

I live in a suburb, so the news shocked me as soon as I heard about it. I hope no one close to me dies from this tragedy. My thoughts are with the people that have lost someone in this though.

Is the Minneapolis Bridge big or something? I've never heard of it. Feel bad for the people that died though.

Don't tell me what to do. He has the right to find humor in whatever he sees fit, despite the fact that the majority finds it despicable.


Back to the topic at hand, I'm sorry for the losses. Whoever helped design that bridge is totally getting fired.

No, he doesn't have the right.

It's probably one of the biggest bridges in MN because it had a 8 lane highway going over it. I heard on the news this morning that it will take two years to rebuild it.

Yes he does. What you are actually advocating is control over what people think, which is rather worse than mere censorship.

actually i imagine its the inspectors from the state/federal highway administration. it was inspected most recently in november i heard, and was deemed safe at the time. i wonder what happened to it between then and now. and for the vid, link?

All you're doing is being a dick. He has the right to believe what ever the hell he wants, just because the rest of society doesn't agree, doesn't mean he can't think it's funny.

that was crazy, i was in guitar lessons when it happened and my teacher got a text at the end and said "i guess a bridge colapsed." then driving home being close to the bridge saw maby 20 cops driving about 95 to the bridge and 1 pulling a boat which was a crazy speed but i was just about to make a thread about this. i live 30 minutes away, its crazy.
#33
Obviously this was President Bush's fault, right?

I think it was horrible, 4 dead, I thought it would be more... There were like 50 cars on that bridge when it collapsed.
#34
Dude getting picked up from a friends house up north and we were driving home and were on 35w and were maybe gonna head over the bridge, but like 5 mins before we got there, I heard breaking news about it on the radio. I COULDA BEEN ON THAT BRIDGE MAN!
#35
dudee its the ****ing towns fault. they knew the bridge was old they knew from 1990 that it needed to be repaired the just didn't want to spend any money fixing it. and what do we have a bunch pepole injured and lots of damage and for whaht tto save a couple of bucks. also construction was being done on the bridgee so durning rush our there weere only two lanes open. obviously too much weight for a old bridge to handle.

Yes, he DOES have the right, despite what your views on the situation are. I am not racist and I don't use "freedom of speech" as a crutch so I can say whatever I want. Freedom of speech is just that though. Some people, like me, realize that and take it for it's literal meaning. Some people, like you, say freedom is speech is OK unless it hurts someone's itty bitty wittle feewings...

And since you brought it up, I absolutely despise Westboro and everything they stand for but guess what, they still have the Constitutional right to do what they are doing. That basic right doesn't change just because damn near everyone else disagrees with them. So please sir, calmly remove your head from your ass and have a nice day.

its actually getting kind of annoying now cause when i want to know what the weather is its a "SPECIAL RPEORT: BRIDGE COLLAPSE!" im surprised at how few deaths there were
<Raven> I got so baked last night
<Raven> that I WOKE UP high o_o
<Raven> Do you have any idea how euphoric that is?
<Raven> I felt like I was being born.

Jesus, I think every fucking bridge thread (mind you, there have been a lot) turns into a debate of whose wrong and whose right over speech and things like that.

Always gotta be someone out there to say something childish, stupid, or inappropriate to the topic, leading to all the other mess that happens.

People just can't be respectful about all this, this is a real big thing here in Minnesota for those who don't know. Maybe the media and national attention got a little too far, but at the same time, when a major bridge just falls down and people get hurt, theres going to be national coverage.

As was I. 6 or so is still tragic, none the less, but I was expecting it to at least be considerably higher.
