The Leaning Tower Of San Francisco


#221

Leaning is chic… :slight_smile:


#222

Yeah, but I don’t like my dinner plates and wine glasses moving on me while I am eating…:slight_smile:


#223

Joe joins the action…


#224

One down…(literally)


#225

Are you hinting that the millennium tower of SF will under go the same fate?


#226

Dude, I work one half block over… but again, let’s not argue the merits of physics


#227

The leaning Tower of Pisa has been collapsing for 500 years…I was in Venice in October and noticed several leaning towers…None had steel reinforced structures or modern engineering. .Lets give the Millennium Tower some time…In a few generations it will become iconic like The TransAmerica pyramid


#228

Yeah, but having to explain to your guests why everything collects in the same corner of every room in your fab condo would get tiring…:grin:


#229

On the plus side, my dog could play ball on her own. She could just go to one side and drop it. It’ll roll to the other side for her to chase it.


#230

True, no need to walk her too. The exercise from having to “climb” back to the rest of the home would be enough…


#231

Actually, it’s very easy to modify the floor to make it flat again. So these jokes can stop now…


#232

Wouldn’t you have to keep modifying it every few years depending on the rate of change?


#233

Geez, touchy touchy… did you go and buy that unit in the MT @wuqijun???


#234

Yes, but there will be a point where these foundation problems settle permanently. They will not keep settling forever.


#235

Or a decent sized earthquake comes and settles it for you… honestly, can you imagine living there knowing the unknown? POS in the fullest definition…


#236

This, is why you (MT) screwed up. You decided to go Delta instead of Grohe and you F’d yourself. Other buildings paid the price, went to bedrock and more, and can thus sell the reality or illusion of safety in earthquake country. Tell me how all those lawsuits pan out ok???

#238

See, those who bought in at bargain pricing at the height of the fiasco might be reaping the profit soon…


#239

Hold on, who is paying for it??? Not chump change…


#240

Still leaning? Somebody put that tower out of its misery before the next quake if possible. :sweat_smile:
