    ok, so basicly there was a bridge that colapsed right over the mississippi river right in the middle of rush hour. people were trapped in the river and everything. this bridge is very near where i live and i have been on it many times. just thought i'd let everyone know about this tragity, though you've probably seen coverage on it on the news already.

    LOL did you read the arcticle? The title is " 7 dead as Mississippi River bridge falls amid rush hour in Minneapolis" so obviously people got hurt.

    You just claimed to be the one who caused a few deaths.

    Wrong joke

    Wrong time

    Aaaaahhhh, weather's messed up, it's why England are flooded and the rest of Europe are suffering from an intense heatwave, many elderly and sick dying and tonnes of people being sent to hospital because of heat stroke.

    The bridge obviously needed structural work, even if they say it didn't, it was due to age, methinks, although it should be said how long it should withstand for.

    I mean, some things, you have to be grateful you're alive for.

    Yeah, I live not too far from there. Roughly 30 minutes. One of our friends called us and told us to turn on the news and well yeah. It is terribly traggic. I'd say this is something you would never really expect, it's just kinda random. =/
