This, my friends, is NOT a collapse rescue scenario. It is not a rescue tech practical. It is not a structural engineering drill. It is not scaffolding, structure beams, or lincoln logs.
THIS is My Captain’s Structural Engineering background genius at work.
He’s building a retaining wall. And when he builds a retaining wall, that puppy RETAINS better than Me after a dinner full off MSG during my menses.
Look at that picture above…he built an anchor for a retaining wall that already has supercalifragilistic supports. My Captain takes no chances.
Well, let’s see, besides the obvious, which is that he makes ‘extreme perfectionism’ look sloppy, he also has had the misfortune to witness deaths caused by trench collapses.
And he’s not about to let ANYTHING like that happen to his loved ones.
Or us, for that matter.
(ba dum bum.)
So when this project is done, you can bet it will be the safest retaining wall EVER BUILT IN THE CREATION OF RETAINING WALLS.
So we’ve got that going for us.
