picturescrazy: d23: drsmith: Slaxl: What's with the screaming? "Aaaah, that bit of land over there is moving... aaaah". Jeez, relax.

It think it's safe to say that you never experienced a natural disaster that damaged something that would cost you lots of money to replace.... Or having to deal with insurance companies looking after their own interest..

// just saying,troll

She was screaming because she knew she was going to have to deal with the insurance company later?

Well..... uh.....

Yeah... I can buy that.

It's annoying to us because we're sitting in the comfort and safety of our own homes watching the video. You stand outside and witness the ground you've taken for granted all your life start collapsing 20 feet away.


Well.. to be clear, I was making fun of the person implying that the lady was screaming because she was worried about insurance...

But the fourth one stayed up. And that's what you're going to get, Lad, the strongest street in all of Baltimore

Great clown Pagliacci's pick-me-up: Those poor people. After the ordeal of dealing with insurance companies, they have to take those checks here: http://youtu.be/z4sEwYmsZf8 NSFW, which I guess spoils it



AH HAHAHAHAHAHHA!

That's not a landslide.   This is a landslide.

I'm conducting an informal experiment: Does watching videos of natural disasters involving cars prevent people from rubbernecking during the next car accident they come across? Because I really hate that. So, please watch this video, and let me know how it goes.

When in danger or in doubt,
Run in circles, scream and shout.

I had the same reaction to Slaxl. Perhaps bit unfair to to cry troll. All that screaming and 'ohmygod' nonesense isnt going to change anything, so it's completely pointless. Some people are stupidly hysteric and yes need to chill.
 
2014-05-01 11:11:12 PM  
Whenever something unexpected happens, a woman's first reaction is always to shriek, as if doing that might somehow help the situation.
 
2014-05-01 11:17:25 PM  
I have often walked down this street before
But the pavement always stayed beneath my feet before

xanadian: tkrispin: xanadian: yeah....could've used a little more erosion control, I guess...

/but seriously...looks like the flow undercut the bulkhead.
//not much you can do about that, other than have the dike go under the riverbed even deeper, I guess

The other side of the wall dropped down to train tracks. There's no river there...

....

Oh.  I see the tracks in the tunnel, now.  All I noticed earlier was the water.

Either way, looks like the bulkhead got undercut.


Yeah we got a lot of rain, plus saturated soil and old infrastructure. This was big local news obviously, I didn't think it would go national. I guess what I'm saying is I don't blame you for assuming it was a river. Baltimore has a lot of train tunnels all over the place.
 
2014-05-01 11:25:17 PM  
Look, if it was my car on my street across from my house I'd be doing something. Screaming, pissing myself, having a stroke... something.

By the way, I turn the sound down unless I plan to use it. N00BS.

So I can crush your car in front of your face and you're gonna stand there quietly? K, gimme an address.

Looks like all of the cars will be fine after recovery?

By the way, I used to live a few blocks from there. First at the corner of 27th and Maryland, then at Charles just past 30th. That used to be home. It's good I moved away in 1996, even if I did wind up in Lexington, KY: there's a better tax base here because the city of Lexington merged with Fayette County and got the horse farms and so on. Imagine if Baltimore City extended halfway to Pennsylvania on one end and around Columbia on the other. "Whaddaya mean you fled from the Negroes? Surprise! And see the bus lines? SUCKERS."

By the way, the reason there's so much poverty in the Bawlamer City is there's so little employment there. There's even worse poverty in eastern Kentucky where the coal mines etc. have shut down, and everybody there is White. It's the lack of green that makes you poor, not the melanin quotient.

In a just world Hunt Valley should collapse into a big sinkhole.

P.S. Yes of course I'm drunk. You would be too if you drank more rum than your liver could process.

There is always a screamer in any group during a disaster. I think that evolution placed them there so that the Mastodon would stomp them or the saber tooth would eat them while the rest of the group escaped.

A good theory. I noticed its usually stupid people doing the screaming. Perhaps this tendency selected for increased human intellect over our history.

Holy shiat, someone make that annoying ass beotch STFU.  Hate being around those kinds of people when the situation may call for some rational thinking and possibly action.

And, I don't know.... maybe not trying to stand around videoing sh*t on your cellphone a few feet from where the EARTH JUST fark*NG COMPLETELY DISAPPEARED?!

SERIOUSLY. THE EARTH JUST fark*NG REMOVED A REALLY LARGE PORTION OF ITSELF. MAYBE YOU SHOULD GO AWAY FOR A BIT.

Sorry for yelling. I've been drinking a little.

Yannow... the average person does not have a 'calm' panic response. That's why people scream and freak. They have never had to train out that panic response, and it kicks in by surprise, and then they don't know how to calm it down.

And I'd bet about a quarter the people slamming on the shrieking woman would freak if something like that happened, too.

Look at the architecture. It's at least a century old. If it had good drainage, it's been a while.

My panic response is laughter. Found that out when I saw a guy holding his own intestines. I wouldn't have freaked out watching that happen, but would still be laughing.

Nordschleife: The best part?  Both CSX and the city knew about this impending issue 16 years ago, and that was because the earth surrounding the construction had been sinking for 15 years up to that point:

It's almost as if we have evolved some kind of auditory signaling mechanism to alert others to danger, as if to prevent them from being harmed.... nah, she's just being a silly.

I think there should be a reward for the next person who films a chaotic scene without someone screaming at hysterically in the background.

Families evacuated from their Charles Village homes in Baltimore after a street collapse could be looking at a long nightmare ahead.
The city said the people could be out of their homes as long as 40 days, as inspectors try to figure out what went wrong.
