2) If we see you wearing Prada shoes, Versace dresses and carry a Gucci bag, we will assume you are doing well financially and therefore do not need a raise.
3) If you dress poorly, you need to learn to manage your money better, so that you may buy nicer clothes, and therefore you do not need a raise.

Enough pictures of my Chinese food ventures.
Time for something that Americans' can relate to.
Back-off. I'm not sharing.
I graduated from high school 1964. Couldn't wait to get out of the house even though nursing school was practically a convent. I am the kind of person you can make stand but I am still sitting. Every now and over the last 70 years a pure rebel is exposed and its always been a mixed bag for better or worse. My question since I am so. Different from siblings was something special going on early morning 07 08 1946? GL you might be able to help me out with signs in the zodiac at that time. I seem to know things I should do without really knowing why, and can't say I have led an exceptional life except I am committed to unconditional sacrificial love for family and friends sometimes to quietly giving more then I can.
Sure, Gold Way, I will tell you some of the influences that occurred in that time period. Will do it a bit later.
Miami Bridge Failure Update 18 March 2018 (10 min)
OMG, what a PoS
If anyone bothered to watch, here's the summary;
the bridge was designed to fail if a single member of the structure failed. That's insanity. Pure un-repenting stupidity. Criminal. Period.
I once lived near the Erie canal. There was a single lane bridge, built around 1870. In 1980 they closed the bridge to heavy trucks, due to deterioration of the steel girders. But left it open to cars. In 1990 they decided to rebuild the bridge for two lanes. The frkn Brooklyn bridge was built in 1867. Its still there last time I checked.
When the Erie bridge was being torn-out I went to inspect. Virtually all the girders were rusted thru in several places, but it was still supporting 5 - 10 cars at the same time. Why? Because it was properly overbuilt. The steel and concrete that make-up a bridge are about 5-10% of the cost – all the rest is labor and such.
WHY the fk would you design to minimize materials of construction~!? And so much so that any defect at any point results in catastrophic lethal failure?
I am soooo beyond words here........................................
Hope you enjoy
Silver66 Rage against the dying of the light
I don't remember the dates but I've been tracking/ playing with new tools and relationships. U know, the usual weird stuff.
5 dead. Helicopter crashes in Hudson River.
1 or 2 days later (just announced), last Thursday
Ivanka Trump and Jarred Kushner helicopter looses engine over new york city return to DC. (2 helicopter incidents over Hudson River. NOTED)

Add the collapsed bridge and other similar events that don't always make center stage. Florida.
Just for the heck of it. Draw lines in your head between events if you can't think of anything elese to do.

More proof emerges that Parkland was a false flag psyop.
You're an early baby boomer. The "generations" as the social scientists define them are really astrology. Another way we hide the truth from the public so to make a piece of information more acceptable. However, Baby boomers are really two different generations since the social scientists didn't get the dates exactly right.
But I think you're looking for some insight as to why you are different, more rebellious? than siblings and maybe your generation?
This might be one aspect. You can read it and see if you're comfortable with the description. It's a very general and isolated aspect of a complex system.
So basically what you're saying is that somebody had a meeting and said, let's drop a bridge on people's heads, calculate the time and method of destruction, then said we'll worry about the lawsuits later?
Or are you saying, this was willful neglect of some aspect of engineering?
The burden of proof for the latter seems much easier.
I watched the video.

Yup. Better to work with gravity than against it
The moon seems to have some relationship to those events that occur that seem to interest us the most. emotions, Locations and timng.
This is not exactly what I am talking about but triangles and moon seem important
Can't find the "right" triangle to illustrate. But hey, I just did a pun.
And those aren't stars..................................................................
I have seen a lot of of analysis that says something like what you are talking about,
But I don't believe any of it.
Here's the thing,
It is not a design flaw!
That was not a truss bridge, and was never meant to be.
It was a suspension bridge, with a tower in the middle, and cables supporting both sides.
The tower was never assembled, and only one side, the longest, was put in place.
If they had put the tower up first, and the other side, with the cables run,
They could have hung the cables on the top, and left it fully suspended before they pulled the jacks out from under it.
They literally put the last piece in first!
The cables we're supposed to be attached to the top of each "truss"
That's why the angles are all different. A truss bridge would only use 45° angles.
I can't find a picture anymore of its original design, but I will look.
It is supposed to look a lot like this, at least here, you get the basic structural concept.
With the wire on the top of every "truss" it would actually have been quite sturdy.
7:15 AM - 10 Mar 2018
I'm saying that all of the analysis is wrong, I even saw a USA today article, that says it was a truss bridge designed to look like an ornamental Cable Stayed bridge. Actually, it's the opposite. Give me a little time,
There is such a avalanche of bullshit surrounding the story, but I do know this:
That bridge was supposed to be suspended like the picture.
And yet they are suing the shit out of the design team already.
Like every good false flag, you need a patsy.
The design team is the patsies. The construction company's owner was in the process of selling his company to China.
There's a money trail here, like somebody wanted to buy a construction company for less than nothing, and the inspectors are in on it.
Actually, skip any of my analysis so far, all I know, is that the stories are completely false.
The whodunit, and why, is something I am still working on.
Fair warning, it's going to be convoluted.
Of course, what else would you expect from me?
This is a very decent representation of what the finished bridge is supposed to look like.
Now look carefully at the trusses. They are an exact match to the piece that fell.
These are not trusses, they are cable supports for the lower deck.

The guy in the video said those suspensions were mostly cosmetic, the support comes from the metal truss's in those concrete upside down V's.
I don't know shit about engineering a bridge unles it's Lego's. But I can repeat what somebody said.
You might be on to something, or you saw something so I'll wait for what you come up with.
Now, that Mnneapolis Bridge Collapse over the Mississippi. That was some bad shit.
I’m not clear on your interpretation. It was most certainly not sold as a suspension bridge. They were going to add a phoney upper facade to make it look like one. Watch the video sometime when yur not multi-tasking…………….
And it also was NOT a truss design – I’ve seen a lot of trusses. I worked in a factory making trusses, as a summer engineering intern job.
The engineer in the video was as clear and concise as he could possibly be – speaking as an engineer. He was absolutely lambasting the design – you have to understand engineering speak. That’s about as emotional as it gets.
He said the super structure was going to be for visual effects only. That’s mind boggling stupid. If yur gonna spend the money, why not make it functional?
Those were not going to be cables – as in suspension. They were going to be pipes painted white to reflect colors at night. He specifically says there were NO CABLES planned for the inside of the pipes. He emphasized that several times. The pipes were going to be bolted to the top of the bridge – effectively ADDING their weight to the load on the bridges’ top member. The only cables in the bridge were inside the lower concrete “truss” members, which were planned to have adjustable tensioning -- which tension was to be transferred to the upper “roof” member. A concrete member~!
OBTW, That’s absolutely baffling. You load concrete from the top of a column – Compression – that’s where concrete is strong. You DO NOT stress a concrete beam on the side – a bending motion. Concrete has no tensile strength. That’s where you use steel.
OK, good, you got that part right. Re-watch the video, correct yur paper and turn it in for grading..................
I am getting that narrative that the cable structure was supposed to be ornamental, and I already mentioned in the post with the video, to turn the sound off, because the analysis was pure crap.
A truss always has 45° angles. They are always 45°, all the way across.
Look closely at the "trusses". The ones at the ends, are clearly supposed to be supported by a cable, they are all pitched in the direction of the cable. without the cable, they are virtually useless.
The narrative that says the cables are ornaments, is total bullshit.
Back when my daughter was in high school, she wound up in a competition for making the strongest, lightest bridge.
The winner, had to have the widest ratio between the weight of the bridge, and the amount of weight it would support.
Everyone was using the bridge design programs that Abguy4 mentioned in his post.
The lightest strongest bridge was a truss with equal length, and equal angles.
I repeat, that was never a truss bridge. Technically, it is called a cable stayed bridge.
Through my own ignorance, I called it a suspension bridge, but I'm learning as I go.
The stories that I'm finding on Google searches, and YouTube searches, are all wrong.
I'm wondering if the design team is still alive....
They do seem awfully quiet lately, don't they.
Don't you find it just a little bit suspicious that nobody on planet earth (except me) is coming to their defense?
