Tenatra: There was a disaster here in Missouri also. I ordered a pizza from Domino's and this is what it looked like inside the box.

[s16.postimage.org image 850x637]

I'd like to know what the fark that employee was thinking when she cut/boxed the pizza. She had to have seen the quality of this product and she still ended up giving it to me?!

/This was supposed to be a large hand tossed pizza
//That hole wasn't from me, it was there when I opened my box
///Half the pizza was flat
////All of the dough was burnt


This is Dominoes. You had plenty of warning. You have no one to blame but yourself.

davidphogan: Wait, a building above the Holland Tunnel is falling apart? Wouldn't that be bad news for the tunnel beneath it?


Well, most of Holland is under sea level, so it could lead to a chain breaching of dikes and a global tulip shortage.

The first disaster was calling Dominoes. You bought your ticket, you knew what you were getting into. Be lucky they didn't wipe their crack with it.

Cory Booker, the mayor of Newark, was cruising around with emergency personnel, taking warnings/distress messages on Twitter and apparently being a complete badass. I know Newark isn't the worst-off city, but that man has my respect.

But New Jersey is its own state with its own issues and disaster response mechanisms. As would an emergency in Philadelphia or D.C. would be as well.

Fubini: but in my mind a news-flash is supposed to be breaking brand-new news, not multiple aspects of the same news unless it marks a significant shift in the news narrative (e.g. person goes from being near-death to dying, a trial verdict is returned, a water-hurricane turns into a fire-hurricane, etc.)


Well when you start your own aggregator website forum then you can make the rules. *shrug*

Bathia_Mapes: davidphogan: What's the simultaneous Newsflashes on the main page at the same time record? Are the admins just trolling us now?

Not sure if it's a record, but a lot of major events are occurring in NYC. Flooding bad enough that it's make it extremely difficult for firefighters to get to a house fire in Queens. The explosion at a Con-Ed substation. Evacuation of NYU Medical Center after their backup generators failed, this being done despite flooded streets. Some of the patients being evacuated are newborns from NICU (neonatal intensive care unit). They're especially fragile since some of them were born prematurely.


A lot of major events, but they all fall under the category of "There's a hurricane."

House fires, power substations exploding, and medical evacuations are rare, but not unheard of events. If they were happening in isolation from NYC and the hurricane very few people would care other than "That's a shame." or "That's a cool video." I admit that evacuating a whole hospital due to adverse conditions is a pretty big deal, but it happened in Katrina too.

I'm not trying to say that all these events are insignificant or not newsworthy, but in my mind a news-flash is supposed to be breaking brand-new news, not multiple aspects of the same news unless it marks a significant shift in the news narrative (e.g. person goes from being near-death to dying, a trial verdict is returned, a water-hurricane turns into a fire-hurricane, etc.)

This is all pretty subjective, though it does give off the air of New York being somehow more important that the other places that bad things happen.

If Cory Booker were anyone else, I'd say he's a master of PR bullshiat.

But the man is one of the few people, let alone politicians, who talks the talk and not just walks the
walk, but goes around with a shovel and broom to make sure the walk is clear.

Meh. What CAN they do at this point?


It does seem that there are people that are paid to assess these situations and make plans. Granted, this is a mess but they had some warning.

I just saw a few of those after I had posted, but I just wasn't sure if it was because of all the headlines they had greenlit mocking the storm before it started, you know, killing people and stuff.

I keep saying holy crap. I haven't been to NYC since I moved from Buffalo, but it always has been one of my favorite cities and it sucks to see it falling into a hellish situations. It just seems like it might be easier to keep track of things in one thread instead of multiple.

Not really. Not just because it would be impossible to fit all the ongoing events into one headline, let alone good planning, to have all the different NYC situations contained in one thread, but the sheer amount of comments spread out over multiple pages would make things much more difficult.

In addtion there's another new flash thread since Canada had yet another earthquake in the same region as before.


They've had at least 50 4.0 or greater aftershocks since the first EQ and the fault isn't far from the Juan DeFuca. This isn't good.Link.
