This house was ruined even before it was finished thanks to the strong winds up in Colorado. The finishing touches are an important part of structural integrity.
Which means it provides rigidity to the frame and helps to prevent twisting. If the building wasn’t completely finished it would easily fall apart, like this.
Back in 2011, this massive ship hauling containers ran aground off the coast of Tauranga, New Zealand. Despite the obvious tipping over, we've got to give props to the person who designed whatever holds the stacked containers together.
We never gave stacking containers a second thought before, but apparently, shipping containers have a locking mechanism in place, we just assumed their sheer weight kept them stacked on ships.
Even JumboTrons aren't immune to accidents. In 1996, the Buffalo Sabres JumboTron fell onto the ice only minutes after the players left the rink after practice. We're really curious if they had a new one installed by the time the next game was played. Those things aren't exactly sitting around at Walmart...
This took a few weeks to get fixed. They took the 2 working screens and set them up at either end of the 100 section in the back few rows of seats.
Mercedes on the Train Tracks
Turns out it's not only Americans who make these kinds of mistakes, a 68-year-old German man decided to drive on the train tracks for some reason and after several hundred meters, he got stuck and his Mercedes was wrecked.
While we can't say why he chose to do this, we can say for sure that you shouldn't try this. It will wreck your car and the schedule of everyone in your vicinity.
Boat on Fire
We never thought we'd stumble upon this, but here's a boat that caught fire. According to the news story, the fire started after a crew was repairing one of the 100-foot boats when it caught fire and released a plume of smoke that could be seen for miles.
Boats are a multi-million dollar loss, so moral of the story — don't get a boat.
