Subby's never seen an article on Venice sinking before?

What?

Is Subby Venetian blind?

Perhaps it is time for Venice to import a few hundred engineers from the Netherlands. I hear that they know how to link armies of hairy female rugby players into a protective chain of some sort.

If you are an engineer, you absolutely must go to Venice before they take it apart and move it to more stable ground as a theme park. I saw it on a day off during a business trip. It is simultaneously beautiful and hilarious. I walked around town thinking, "This is the most enormously bad idea I've ever seen implemented."

Do they save this article and reprint it with new pictures every year?

Venice was a genius concept - strategically defensible, good harbor (for 15th century Panamax vessels), Culture open to talent, with a concentration of the world's finest financial minds.

It was more or less exactly like Manhatten. Only difference is that Venice floods and...

/ wait, what?

DiRF: The people just "lounging" in that water... after what I've read about the what's in the water around Venice, I firmly believe that those people are insane. Friggin' communal toilet.


Precisely. I guess people don't know what journey their poop goes on after the flush.

My first thought upon seeing those pictures.

I think the canals in the Netherlands have a "flush" feature.


That must take a lot of vinegar...

I think the odds of finding a trove of unclaimed Baby Ruth bars might make swimming in a flooded Venice worth the risk! Yum!

Bennie Crabtree: Why the fark aren't those tourists doing everything in their power to help save the artifacts around them?

I am sure the reason they're such farkwits is the same reason white people aren't doing anything about global warming in the first place.


UH, That's called looting.

RexTalionis: Bathia_Mapes: Flooding in Venice is hardly "new". It's been an ongoing problem for several centuries, much of it being exacerbated by the actions of the residents.

It doesn't help that Venice is slowly sinking, either.


The engineers failed to take into account the weight of the books?

Two things I will never forget about Venice. The beauty (slimy and crumbling) and the smell (oh god the smell)

If flooding in Venice is new and hot, I'd better go dig out my ten generations removed great granny's bloomers. I'll be scandalous yet stylishly modish when I finally visit.
