    Florida highway covered in Coors Light beer after semi crash | AP News

    Another truck crash, and this time it's a beer truck.

    I'll bet the cleaning crew for that mess was feeling no pain afterwards.

    Apparently caused by an unsafe lane change.

    They should have gotten Bob and Doug McKenzie to drive the truck.

    WRONG!!!! The Tappan zee bridge is not the Mario M Cuomo bridge. The Mario M Cuomo bridge is a brand new bridge that cost the tax payers of NYS a whole lot more than originally stated

    Speaking of bridges, I must confess to having a slight anxiety when it comes to crossing bridges. (Gephyrophobia - Wikipedia)

    I think it started when I heard about that I-35 bridge collapse in Minnesota. It was shortly after that event was when I crossed over the rickety old Tappen Zee Bridge, trying to formulate a plan of how I was going to survive if the bridge collapsed and I suddenly plunged into the Hudson. That bridge is 3 miles across, so if I fell in the middle, I might have to swim more than a mile to reach shore, in that dirty, dreadful, polluted muck they call a river.

    So? What does not cost a whole lot more? Every get an estimate from a contractor? And if you get a fixed cost bid, you can bet every dollar you have that there's a fudge-factor built in for things going wrong.

    3.98 billion and the contractor is insisting the state owes him about 900 million more... and they are already finding the "fudge factor" as you so eloquently put it. However this is about 2 billion less than the original estimate. But then that estimate included an expanded rail service

    and to be honest, the original Tappan Zee was put at one of the worst places to cross the river for political reasons

    I've always specified those as fake friends.
    Fake people talk behind crap about you behind your back amd present themselves as a chameleon.

    I have a fence gate post that is kaput. A contractor gave me a fixed price bid as well as mentioning T&M and costs. I chose T&M and now the contractor has ghosted me because I'd pay quite a bit less that way.

    My raincoat is very, very dirty. Apparently the rain isn't washing it.
