Alright...I'm a woman so I obviously don't maths, but this is not 40 degrees.

That is much too cold for this building.

Huh. And all this time I thought the Thai would be comfortable with slopes.

Everyone said I was daft to build an apartment building on a swamp, but I built in all the same, just to show them. It sank into the swamp. So I built a second one. That sank into the swamp. So I built a third. That burned down, fell over, then sank into the swamp. But the fourth one stayed up. And that's what you're going to get, Lad, the apartment building in all of Thailand.

Satanic_Hamster: Voiceofreason01: Satanic_Hamster: Man, someone REALLY farked up on the subsurface/foundation work.  That, and/or the contractor/owner decided to go cheap on the foundations and poured a much smaller slab then needed and neglected to put any pilings.


Question is; did the builder neglect to do any sort of geo survey or engineering work?   Not unknown for a half assed builder just to use a design that he already had on the shelves that was meant for a site with much better ground and neglected to see if it would even work at that location.

They couldn't find the money for it so they skimped.  Guess nobody stepped up to cosine a loan.

I'm sure there will be many obtuse jokes.

I just hope some farker doesn't give into temptation and make a cute comment that goes flat.
