YouTube is full of videos of cranes collapsing because they were set up on mud. Add another to the pile.

My step-daughter is married to an Indian guy, and even he admits that they're out of their farking minds over there.

From my understanding, the parents of the bride are responsible for the weeding ceremony and subsequent feast, afterwards.  Even poor people go into major debt to provide a multi-day wedding ceremony or you lose your status in the community.

India was more or less owned by Britain for a couple hundred years. English may not be the dominant language, but it is a common second language.

I get what you're saying though. Watching the Olympics, I was surprised to see how often non-English-speaking athletes were announced in English (over the PA system, not NBC) and how often American music was used for ice dancing and figure skating. Lingua Angla is becoming the lingua franca of the world.

Interesting typo under the circumstances.

Well, one, it already is and has been for a while. Two, French and English are the official languages of the Olympics, so you're going to get a lot of announcements in one or both of them for Olympic related stuff.

That's why the alphabet montage during the opening ceremonies had a bunch of words in French and English alongside the Russian.

Maybe that's why the wedding feasts go on for days?

/ In this case, it appears weed was involved, probably in the planning stage and, also, during ceremony itself.

'The incident took place when the crane was about to drop it to the ground from the height of four feet.


Yeah, unless that little diamond was about 3  inches in height, that thing started to fall from a LOT higher than for farking feet... That was at least 30 feet off the ground when the crane first starts to noticeably tip, and I bet it was going before that.

And I'm with the other farkers here, could you have possibly made your wedding any MORE farking gaudy? Jezum crow!

Just a warning, BTW. First time I watched the video, it loaded fine. Second time, I tried to watch the video without reloading the page, I accidentally opened the Pampers link and got a fake 'Your Computer has been infected' popup. I closed it immediately, and nothing has registered on my actual antivirus, but watch out for that Pampers ad, their shiat may be infected...

It's amazing what that stuff is like when the kids are just living on breast milk... Even worse, the first few days, when they are switching to actual food from living through the umbilical. Scary, scary stuff...

Wife, being progressive, switched over to cloth diapers, soon after birth.  I was the one who, of course, handled the radioactive waste, each night, lugging the diaper bucket down to the basement, rinsing and then putting everything into the washer and dryer.  Fun times.  Fun times.

Yeah, when I was young, we did cloth diapers for my younger sister. I was NOT really ready to jump on the bandwagon when my daughter came around. Luckily, my wife wasn't, either. Diaper Days are hopefully not going onto my highlights reel when I get older.

Someone needs to design a better crane, or at least teach people to use the right crane for the job.  What they needed was one of those big shipyard style cranes with 4+ legs and scaffolding between, where the load is lifted in the middle, not out at the end of a lever.

Brides so heavy they need to be transported by crane don't deserve to procreate.

An interweb apiece for subby and Darwin.
