The problem was nobody gave a shit, when bridge's engineer sounded alarm last Friday about cracks  on the bridge.

All responsible were in 'siesta' mood.

Engineer Reported Cracks On Miami Bridge Days Before Deadly Collapse

... in a separate report, it's been revealed that one of the company's involved in building the bridge had a history of safety complaints.

The latest disturbing news from the accident comes after it was reported Friday that an engineer for the company that designed the bridge called a Florida Department of Transportation employee to warn about "some cracking" visible on the underside of the bridge. However, the state employee was out on assignment that day, and the call - from W. Denney Pate of FIGG Bridge Engineers - went unanswered until Friday, the day AFTER the deadly collapse, per the Wall Street Journal.

To be sure, the engineer who reported the cracking noted that, while the damage should be repaired, it didn't appear urgent.

"We've taken a look at it and, uh, obviously some repairs or whatever will have to be done," Pate said.

"But from a safety perspective, we don't see that there's any issue there so we're not concerned about it from that perspective, although obviously the cracking is not good and something's going to have to be, ya know, done to repair that."

4 fatal casualties for now, but they are still looking for more bodies ... estimate is 6 dead, students mostly.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
