If a bridge caught on fire in Omaha no network would carry it

This isn't a slap at the submitter, it's a swipe at meda in general

According to my friend's wife who is watching it from the east side, it just looks like tarps that caught fire.
 
2005-10-18 01:47:13 PM
Yeah, there is another thread about it. CNN has it on TV, maybe on the website. I'm too tired to look.
 
2005-10-18 01:47:41 PM
I've got the marshmallows.
 
2005-10-18 01:47:52 PM
Any idea what caused it at this time?

Damn, my sister lives in that general area. :/

yeah...I think it's more than that though...it's hard to tell...thick, thick black smoke...
 
2005-10-18 01:49:10 PM
Another thread said there was some construction going on, so... could be gas or oil, etc.?

I can just hear Rove, Open the Baltimore Tunnel and cue the fire on the 59th street bridge."
 
2005-10-18 01:50:10 PM
hey new york? use steel for your bridges, not popsicle sticks regardless how well those wise guy contractors say they hold up

/the more you know
 
2005-10-18 01:50:28 PM
from what I can see, looked like a car they were spraying down.

So incredibly jaded.
 
2005-10-18 01:51:01 PM
Isn't that bridge metal and concrete?



It's a tarp.

IMlifelike: Another thread said there was some construction going on, so... could be gas or oil, etc.?


yeah...that's what it seems like. Very eery though. It was like 9/1. Everyone on the streets watching...you can see it from everywhere...at least the smoke.

lordargent: It's a tarp.

hahahahaha! Damn, I should've used that for the headline!!! hahahaha!
 
2005-10-18 01:52:14 PM
I guess I should jump out the window, because I am not going to sit here and work and let the terrorists win.
 
2005-10-18 01:52:40 PM
DDR? Well, the bridge,the bridge, the bridge IS on fire, I guess.
 
2005-10-18 01:53:00 PM
Slow down, you move too fast...

"It's a tarp!"

That's what Ackbar's dyslexic brother, Abckar, says.
 
2005-10-18 01:53:33 PM
Slow down, you move too fast
You got to make the morning last
Just kicking down the cobble stones
Looking for fun and feelin' groovy
 
2005-10-18 01:53:33 PM
Feelin' groovy?
 
2005-10-18 01:53:48 PM
Regardless, the bridge is decidedly NOT feelin' groovy...
 
2005-10-18 01:53:59 PM
Was Scorpio involved in any way?
 
2005-10-18 01:54:02 PM
Is anyone else..

Feellinnnnnn' grooovey ?
 
2005-10-18 01:54:10 PM
Matters not to me.
 
2005-10-18 01:54:14 PM
Not feeling groovy, are they?
 
2005-10-18 01:54:57 PM
The Baltimore Tunnels are closed and now this bridge is on fire? Hmm...

Actually, I believe it's a Simpsons gag. And it was breadsticks. Pretty sure it was breadsticks.

Doesn't look that bad.
 
2005-10-18 01:56:18 PM
Damn you all!

/shakes tiny fist
//not feeling groovy anymore
 
2005-10-18 01:56:19 PM
groovy, I feel.
 
2005-10-18 01:57:02 PM
Holy fark that was a fast greenlight
 
2005-10-18 01:57:05 PM
Do we blame this on Rove or Cheney?
 
2005-10-18 01:57:14 PM
Blame Scorpio?

I want to take a chance.

2005-10-18 01:57:52 PM
I had the "boobies" with the Simon and Garfunkel reference, yo.

/don't fight the filter
 
2005-10-18 01:58:42 PM
I'm out in California, never been the New York, so this news story means nothing to me. Is this some major important bridge?
 
2005-10-18 01:58:48 PM
From the live coverage on CBS.com looks like it's pretty much out. Probably welding sparks ignited some of the tarps wrapped around the entire bridge.
 
2005-10-18 01:58:49 PM
Don't feel bad BigMattyC, we're all part of the same canned response.
 
2005-10-18 01:59:04 PM
I got no deeds to do, no promises to keep...
 
2005-10-18 01:59:34 PM
wow, just clicked on the cbs news link and they got live aerials of the dam situation in taunton mass. that's like 15 minutes from me.

/wonder if the Galleria is still open.
//it's a big ass town, 56,000 people
 
2005-10-18 01:59:45 PM

Satisfaction (uhu hu hu) came in the chain reaction,
(burnin') I couldn't get enough, (till I had to self-destroy)
So I had to self destruct, (uhu hu hu)...


Burn baby burn, disco inferno,
Burn baby burn, burn that mother down, yo !

 
2005-10-18 01:59:57 PM
And here I was all ready to make a Simon and Garfunkel reference....

Rove must be getting indicted today...
 
2005-10-18 02:01:29 PM
As much as I hope for the sake of the people of Taunton, that the damn holds, I really want to see the video of it failing, and the wall of water marching downtown.
