Miami Skyscraper Partially Collapses Overnight; Officials Fear "Massive" Loss of Life

Terrible. At least one person is dead, and officials expect that number to rise dramatically as victims are found in the rubble.

Some may wonder if this is the result of a bomb. A friend of mine pointed out that any kind of bomb would have produced an explosive shockwave that everyone would have noticed. This building seems to have simply collapsed.

The building was just being inspected for structural integrity, as it just turned forty years old. It was built in 1981.

Burkett also described the building, built in 1981, as "not an old building." "There's not reason for this building to go down like that."

"It's less likely than a lightning strike. It just doesn't happen. You don't see building falling down in America," Burkett said.

But there are no reports of an explosion, so what else could it be?

One thing is certain: The multitude of Blue-Check Twitter General-Purpose Experts will be receiving their Ph.D.'s in both structural engineering and best practices in structural safety management, and will all be claiming, to man (or to a schman), that this was all Ron DeSantis' fault, as if he's on the head of the f*cking inspection crew or that he created the law that buildings have to be inspected after 40 years (rather than 30, or 35, or even 39, as the newly-minted Twitter Ph.D.'s will all be confidently informing us, picking any number smaller than 40 to pin the blame, somehow, on Ron DeSantis, Author of All Evils).

By the end of the day, the Blue-Check Twitter General-Purpose Experts, including noted Doctors of Twitter Science Dr. Guy P. Benson and Professor AllahPundit, will be calling this the DeSantis Collapse.

Video of the wreckage below.


One nice story: A ten-year-old boy was heard in the rubble, and was safely extricated.
