Las Vegas knows how to put on a show, no matter if it’s good or bad. In this case, it’s bad. Anywhere from three hundred thousand dollars to seven hundred thousand dollars bad. This is a picture of a video wall collapsing to the floor of the Mandalay Bay Event Center.
Seeing all those small parts broken and spread all over the floor makes any electronics worker wince, but those are expensive, complicated LED screens. Not to mention repairs to the floor, and time they can’t use the event center to hold events. The likely culprit is a critical failure of both the supports and the cables.
Naughty, Naughty Building
We've seen a couple of broken-up buildings on this list in one way or another, but this is a strange example. Best we can gather, this is a building in Al Madinah Al Monwarah Park in Saudi Arabia, and we see a building that was peeled off its outer layer like it's doing a striptease.
Due to the language barrier, it's tough finding out how the outer layer is so damaged but the inner layer isn't. Unfortunately, repairing something to an earlier state often takes more time and money than just rebuilding from scratch, so the inner wall might have come down afterward. Use more than just super glue next time, guys.
Get the Broom
No, this isn't going to be anywhere near the most expensive thing on this list, but anyone who has dropped a plate and had shards of ceramic glass shoot all over the floor is groaning right now.
That is something like six hundred plates covering the floor of that kitchen. It could have been a few people responsible, but odds are one poor sod has to do all the cleaning himself. Even worse, the professional kitchen is pretty much unusable in this state. If the restaurant or eatery was running, people are going to start to go hungry. It's just bad news all around.
Somebody Call an Expert
This picture has been spread around the internet a pretty good bit, and everyone who comments on it says pretty much the same thing: how on Earth did this happen? There are multiple white vans stuck under the awning of a gas station.
With one of the vans wedged at a hilarious angle, everybody's first thought when seeing this is the same. There's some physics joke hiding in here, but we don't know enough to point it out. As far as the cost goes, we have damage to the vans, the truck carrying them, the awning for the station, and all the other little bits. That's a good chunk of change.
Sometimes You're Just Having a Bad Day
It isn't a capsized boat, or a dozen smashed cars, or a house that's been split in half, but still. A little bit of forklift foolishness has given this hardware store a fresh coat, whether it needed one or not.
The total cost of this mistake is probably a few hundred at most. That's just the dollar amount, however. The cost of having all your co-workers call you names like “Butterfingers,” or something like that will be much higher.
