Wake up, get out of bed, drag a comb across my head...head out to the road, over the bridge...oops!...you are late for work forever, you are dead. The bridge designer, architect, and construction engineering company pause to reflect on the engineering disaster before them. The next day, 10 more engineering structures fail, and a week later a thousand more. A failed bridge here a collapsed building there, pretty soon you are talking about a real loss of human life. There are no other designers, architects, and construction engineering companies the government can turn to, so the group that failed so miserably is hired to replace the wreckage, with cost-plus contracts that every tax payer in America will fund. Not only are they too big to fail, there's nobody else to turn to. So, dust off the same engineering drawings, use lowest-bid subcontractors and before you know it America's back in business and the CEOs of the designers, architects, and construction engineering firm are all enjoying the French Riveria with money snatched from the pockets of the underemployed, recently laid off, and poor who must now beg at intersections for money to eat.
