    school shooting in florida.

    and here goes the leftists again crying about gun control. no. the solution is to arm and train the teachers and school officials to quickly respond to a shooting incident.

    and they talk about the mental health of this kid. the only thing that will change anything is a RADICAL restructuring of society. that's not gonna happen suddenly, but gradually, in which case incidents like this will not decrease in any significant way. if anything, they are increasing.

    "Every society gets the kind of criminal it deserves. What is equally true is that every community gets the kind of law enforcement it insists on.- Kennedy

    lol! he stole that quote from lenin.

    its like this, folks. until you are willing to supress many of the freedoms that are being so abused by the media and the members of this democratic society, problems like this will continue to exist if not get progressively worse.

    it is up to competent government to handle this kind of stuff. the people don't know their ass from a hole in the ground.

    in this case you either arm everybody (there are more good guys than bad guys), or abolish weapons completely.

    the country is divided on this matter, but in either case, the government must make a decision. this issue has been on a balancing beam for decades now, and the shootings continue.

    either take the fucking weapons or give everybody a gun. let's get on with it.

    i love to see a good divide between the people of the nation. i almost pop some pop-corn now before i turn on the news.

    so now there are threats of nation wide highschool strikes unless the government does something about the guns. these people who are ready to strike hadn't considered that maybe instead of banning guns, a change of social infrastructure should happen instead and could achieve the same result; no more whacko teenagers shooting up schools. for starters, you can get rid of 97.5% of the garbage played on the radio (hip-hop gangsta rap, angry HEAVY metal, and all the miserable ballads that make you want to fucking die), because adolescents are probably more influenced and conditioned by the music they listen to than anything else.

    i bet if you did that, all the other shit that makes an angry, misunderstood teenager become a whack-job wouldn't even matter. problems with grades, or girls, or mom and dad, or peer pressure, violent action movies, or whatever propaganda on the internet that brainwashes em.... all trivial details.

    there is something about music alone that has a subliminal effect unlike any of those other factors. you listen to a tu-pac song... and then get in an argument with your folks, lose your job, break up with your girl friend, fail your test, watch a rambo flick, and join a white supremacist website... and i bet the only thing on your mind as you drive to the wendy's to shoot everybody, will still be the tu-pac song.

    what was it that plato said again.... you can judge a society by its music?

    some people somewhere reported to the police that the next-door neighbor always leaves a child alone at home, who keeps crying during the day. Police accompanied by social service came and broke down the door to recover the child. And this is what they they found:

    WARNING. VERY GRAPHIC.

    you talking about Joel Osteen? there's a special place in hell reserved for that chump. what was that deal with the flood or whatever where he had enough room in his church for victims to take refuge, but refused to let them in? it was all over the TV couple years back.

    What was it... five pipe bombs? ... and not one of em worked? it's a sad day when a radical right wing militia fucks up five out of five homemade bombs. That's like an epic fail. Kaczynski is laughing his ass off right now.

    What pisses me off is that they tried to blow up Robert deniro. Unbelievable. I thought conservatives liked gangster movies.

    While the claims may seem radical, an intelligence that’s indistinguishable from the fabric of the universe would solve many of its greatest mysteries, Caleb Scharf, Director of Astrobiology at Columbia University, writes in an article for Nautilus.

    For one, it would explain why we have yet to find an intelligent civilization outside of Earth.

    ‘Perhaps hyper-advanced life isn’t just external,’ Scharf writes.

    ‘Perhaps it’s already all around. It is embedded in what we perceive to be physics itself, from the root behaviour of particles and fields to the phenomena of complexity and emergence.

    ‘In other words, life might not just be in the equations. It might be the equations.’

    The expert points to the theory of the ‘singularity,’ a period in the foreseeable future in which humanity is expected to merge with technology.

    If machines become intelligent enough, they could ‘decode the staggering complexity of the living world,’ allowing a civilization to reassemble itself into new forms.

    What should the wall be built of? First consider it's purpose; to prevent people from crossing the border. What then are the most important features of the wall? That it be unscalable and impenetrable... that's all that's necessary. Next consideration; what is the most cost effective way to achieve this? Two options. Concrete or steel. Since concrete is far cheaper and has enough fortitude to stop people who probably won't be demolitions experts... it's the obvious choice... or at least for someone who has an IQ higher than a toaster.

    It looks like steel might be less expensive than concrete.


    METAL VS. CONCRETE: ARE METAL BUILDINGS AS DURABLE AS CONCRETE?
    https://www.whirlwindsteel.com/blog/bid/287419/metal-vs-concrete-are-metal-retail-buildings-as-durable-as-concrete

    CONSTRUCTION COSTS

    -Steel construction is less expensive than concrete construction in time, materials and labor.

    -Concrete construction takes time to complete because it must be poured onsite and allowed to cure before proceeding.

    -Concrete requires more laborers to pour and finish concrete properly.

    -Pre-engineered steel buildings only require assembly, taking much less time to erect and complete the building and making it ready for the trades.

    -Steel buildings may require a different set of skills from concrete construction, but the workers complete the building quicker, offsetting the labor costs.

    -Steel framing makes it easier to plan and place utilities than concrete.

    -Steel construction overall is faster, cleaner and simpler than concrete construction. Building with concrete will not insulate you from price fluctuations in steel and transportation, and erection will cost less if you build with steel.

    -Steel is fire-resistant, wind-resistant and more likely to survive an earthquake than a concrete building. It may deform under certain conditions but will not fail.

    Steel is simply the better of the two materials in overall durability and versatility.

    Cost Comparison steel vs. concrete

    https://www.scribd.com/document/145646710/Cost-Comparison-steel-vs-concrete

    Savings with steel

    The results conclusively demonstrate that steel-based options are, in all cases, the most cost effective. The cheapest option in terms of structure costs alone was the composite beam and slab, showing why this form of construction is the most popular multi-storey flooring solution in the UK. When variable costs, such as cladding and foundations are considered, Slimdek becomes an equally cost effective alternative. In general, reinforced concrete systems are three to eight percent more expensive than the steel options.

    Concrete vs Steel Construction
    http://www.onsite-sm.co.uk/concrete-vs-steel-construction/

    Companies also offer concrete repairs which tend to be a lot quicker, simpler and cheaper than other repairs on steel structures.
    Steel on the other hand, in terms of cost, is generally a cheaper option.


    From an engineer on Quora:

    https://www.quora.com/Is-steel-less-expensive-than-concrete

    Is steel less expensive than concrete?

    Timma Reddy, Execution of Civil works wrote:

    Construction projects require many decisions. A key decision is to find the most effective option, as well as determining which process could produce ideal results.
    Take a look at this breakdown. This example weighs the pros and cons of Structural Steel versus Concrete.

    Costs

    Structural Steel: A large majority of all steel manufactured today comes from recycled materials; A992 steel. This recycling usage makes the material much cheaper when compared to other materials. Although the price of steel can fluctuate, it typically remains a less expensive option compared to reinforced concrete.

    Concrete: A large cost benefit to concrete is the fact that its price remains relatively consistent. On the other hand, concrete also requires ongoing maintenance and repairs, meaning added costs throughout its lifetime. Supply-and-demand may also impact the availability of concrete. Even though it can be poured and worked with directly onsite, the process to completion can be lengthy and could accrue higher labor costs.

    the ideal design would be dry stacked (no mortar needed) concrete blocks re-enforced by internal rebar, so there wouldn't be any casting, forming or pouring involved. but for arguments sake, let's say we were gonna pour it. bringing concrete trucks to the site wouldn't be any more expensive than bringing steel transport trucks to the site... so that's not the deal breaker. also, a steel wall has to be anchored somehow; you have to dig footings to anchor your vertical beams in. with concrete blocks there's no footers and no digging. doesn't have to be; they're to heavy to move once they're set in place.

    concrete blocks would also require far less manual labor as the blocks would be set by small crains and tractors. steel framing, on the other hand, would require manual assembly... which means more workers.

    and manufacturing concrete block is muuuuch cheaper than manufacturing steel building material.

    the objections you mention are coming from the assumption that such a concrete wall would need to be poured. it does not. pre-manufactured re-enforced blocks is the cheapest and most effective way to keep the beaners out... i'm telln' you man.

    here's what's being considered. if you ask me they're too concerned with aesthetics. this modern style paneling looks good but it's got to cost way more than good ol' fashioned blocks.

    you'll see the architects calling out the faults of steel, as well.
