(NPR)   ...So I built a third boardwalk. That burned down, fell over, then sank into the swamp. But the fourth one will stay up, and that's what you're going to get, lad. The strongest boardwalk in Jersey   (npr.org) divider line 9

Kahabut: New Farkin User Name: Solid Muldoon: Benjimin_Dover: So have they determined the cause yet? Was it shoddy workmanship done while rushing to rebuild it the last time? Are they going to wait until there is adequate water supply to the area to fight fires this time? Questions I think should be answered before another slap together job is done.

Adequate water supply? You mean like that ocean sitting right there?

Similar to how you can't drink salinated water, it also can't put out fires. The salt boosts the thermal conductivity of the water to the point where it is completely useless to extinguish fires. In fact, it might even speed up the spread of the blaze.

OMG, wow.  You are out of your mind.


Well there is a reason you prefer to use desalinated water to put out fires but yes that reason is complete bullshiat. Salt water can be used to extinguish fires however the result is a concentration of salt and minerals in the fire location which could contribute to an ecological problem as it will kill very living thing in that location.

....of course this is Jersey we're talking about so I guess it would be a wash

These shore resorts will rebuild whatever it takes. It could've been Wildwood or Ocean City, MD or Rehoboth Beach, Del or Myrtle Beach, Va. take your pick. All have generated not only revenue for their states but countless cherished Family Memories for Generations. Families take their kids to the beach, That's what we do.

Christie said the fire had taken an "emotional toll."...  he said that after "all the effort and time and resources" that had gone into rebuilding the area following Sandy, "I feel like I want to throw up."

I just don't see him as the purging type.

Out with the old, in with the new! Put in some casinos and condos. They'll get over it.

It's God speaking to them--he hates that ugly boardwalk.

AllYourFarkAreBelongToMe: Which they drew water from via many 5" hoses.  Actually they drew water from the bay, not the ocean, but whatever.  It takes a special kinda sick fark to make light of this.  Some of these people had just finished rebuilding and reopened after losing everything to Sandy.  And now they've lost everything again.  But fark-'m right?  Damned business owners who employ people and pay taxes.  Who needs 'em!?  AMIRIGHT?


Unless they're total idiots, they're all insured for this and won't lose a dime.

To insure your little boardwalk business for fire and 12+ months of loss of income would be under $2k per year.
