Word from the past week..."Liability"

Well it's been a little over a week now, and all last week and now into this week I keep hearing the same thing over and over...

"Nothing like a little liability to help you sleep at night"
"You are a PE now, you don't need me anymore."
"Put everything in your wife's name."

It's all new to me and I have a lot to learn, but now I just chuckle when I hear these things. I know I shouldn't, because it's soooo true! Today I was reading a story about the 13-story apartment complex in Shanghai that fell over. Craziest fell over intact! I assumed it had to be geotechnical to fall over like that...and apparently it was when they started excavating for the underground parking garage that it all happened. Check out the picture:

Debbie's response to all of this, "huh, and you wanted to be a PE..."

  1. A question I have is why did they built the building before the parking structure. Seems backwards too me, but what would I know!!:) Also, this proves that inland Chinese have questionable construction practices.
