I think they could have done a better job marking that area.

HellRaisingHoosier: Jesus Christ, China has some shiatty engineering


They have ethics/accountability issues in regards to civil engineering. If they fix that (yeah right), proper engineering standards and implementation would follow, hopefully.

You can bet that if this happens in the US, the person who fell in would get a lawyer, they will find a paper trail a mile long showing who was responsible for the materials, the construction and so on. Then they get sued to sub-orbit.

Hard to tell, but from the commentary and video there were "warning signs" up saying "DONT WALK HERE SINKHOLE ZONE"...the walkway also looked wet like it was recently paved over.

HEY GIRL - GET YOUR SKINNY ARSE OFF THE PHONE AND WATCH WHERE YOU ARE GOING!

geez...nice 'markings'. What if it was a blind person? She's just dumb and not paying attention to China's version of orange cones (I guess that's what those are...?) but a blind guy wouldn't see 'em.

Then again, in China lawsuits don't happen so they don't bother being overly cautious for stupid people. They just make you disappear if you think of something silly like suing. ;)

Ya, those are great caution symbols. Grey to match the concrete!

Living in China seems like it would be suicide for a blind person.

A coworker was telling me about this today. he said, "She was just walking and she went 'chink' down this hole"
Now, my coworker is Asian. And I looked at him. Paused. And said, "now if this had happened in America, I supposed she would have gone 'Sink' down the hole, right"?
He though for a bit, realized what he said, and busted out laughing.
Then he jokes, "don't report me to HR"

What caution blocks? Those little posts are there to keep people from driving on the sidewalk. In a case like this I'm fine with everybody involved getting their asses sued.
 
2012-04-25 06:14:33 AM
I don't blame the cell phone user in this case.. could've been anyone. Should've been completely blocked off.
