|The remains of a Turkish mansion after an out of control ship hit|
it in the Bosphorus Straight.
Lately, quite a few people have had that happen in a huge way.
A lot of what you are about to see look like at least potentially fireable offenses. So keep checking out this post every time you make a mistake at work.
It could always be worse.
First, we go to Denmark, where it was time to demolish an old silo. It was all set up. The giant silo would come down, and tilt to the right and crash into an open lot.
Bummer. The damn thing tilted to the left. Where, of course, there was a building in the way. Part of the silo landed on a library and cultural center. While that building was badly damaged, most of the books inside were saved, even though they were covered in dust.
Next, we go to the Bophorus Straight near Instabul, Turkey, where, unfortunatly, a ship's rudder recently failed.
Which is bad, but it got worse. The out of control vessel smacked into the Hakeimbasi Salih Efendi mansion on a recent afternoon. The opulent place was built in the 18th century and has recently been used to host weddings and concerts. The mansion appears to have been destroyed.
Not after the ship hit it. It was quite an impact, as you can see from the video below. Luckily no injuries were reported
Now we go to our nice close neighbors in Montreal, where, on an icy day in early April, the cargo hold of a truck lifted up as it sped along Highway 40. Nobody is sure why yet, but it sure led to a dramatic crash into a pedestrian bridge
The load of corn went everywhere, and a motorist nearby filmed the whole thing.
Strang truck mishaps seem to be an epidemic. A truck loaded with empty beer kegs plunged off a Pennsylvania overpass recently, spilling the kegs all over Interstate 95 and forcing a temporary closure of one of the world's busiest highways.
Then there's the famous 11 foot, eight inch bridge in North Carolina, which continues to claim the lives of many trucks which are too tall for the low overpass. Despite numerous safety measures and warnings that have been installed there over the years, trucks continue to hit the railroad bridge.
Yeah, people are stupid.
Here's the Montreal crash
Finally, this is what happens when a car stalls out on a California freeway. This video was taken a couple months back.Yikes!
