I Hate Persistent Idiocy

I’ve posted on here before about the Buffalo Creek disaster 40 years ago. It appears we haven’t learned a damned thing since then. Have a look at this article and say something if it prompts you to do so. Once again, they’re referring to it as an “accident.” It was no such thing. It was BAD DESIGN. And lack of enforcement, and insufficient regulations. Regs are good when they friggin’ SAVE YOUR LIFE.

Here’s the Buffalo Creek video again, from the History Channel:
