These Engineers Should Be Fired!

If the following construction fails don’t make you shake your head and wonder what they are (or are not) teaching in engineering schools today, nothing will. I bet they did not go to school at M.I.T. or Rolla.

What happens when there's a train coming by?

What happens when there’s a train coming by? I think this may give new meaning to the term ‘short track.’ This one does not even make sense to me-I do not understand the thought (or lack there of) process here.

Finally an ATM for giants.

Finally an ATM for giants. Professional basketball players get all the perks-for example their very own ATM that the regular public doesn’t quite have access to. I wonder if Minute Bol ever took any money out of there?

The urinal, where everyone wants to get really close

The urinal, where everyone wants to get really close. I hope the janitorial staff gets paid double for cleaning this restroom. Why just why?

Yup, that looks safe

Yup, that looks safe. I believe some kids had input into this ‘quick fix’ after playing with their old Erector set. Seeing this would not give me much confidence to even walk across.

When in doubt, add more manholes

When in doubt, add more manholes? Clearly the contractor was paid for how many manholes he installed, not WHERE he put them, nor how useful they would be. I have heard of some interesting Eastern European engineering, but this takes the cake!

The great random balcony on wall design

The great random balcony on wall design built exclusively for Superman and his other superhero buddies. Let’s just fly up there and relax for a few moments, with the birds.

Where do the kids go?

Where do the kids go? I think this was built a very grumpy school administration for a special playground for unruly children. Or, maybe it is a principals version of walking the plank?

Why drinking and construction don't mix.

Why drinking and construction don’t mix. I am glad I do not have to take that train.

Lean on me, when you are not strong. I will help you carry on.

Lean on me, when you are not strong. I will help you carry on. Either the wind had some input in there, or the level they used was quite a bit off! I wonder what the bus looks like that stops there?

If you live in New Jersey, do not complain about Chris Christie in an open forum.

If you live in New Jersey, do not complain about Chris Christie in an open forum or, this may happen to you too. My assumption is that they are going to have a hard time selling that house, unless the owners drive motorcycles.

Not sure what is 'best' about this particular Best Western architects attempt here.

Not sure what is ‘best’ about this particular Best Western architects attempt here. It just doesn’t make logical sense to me. What is the purpose, or how did this even happen?

There will be absolutely no playing Stairway to Heaven on these stairs. I am not sure why anyone would build this unless they needed a decent spot for family pictures.

No playing Stairway to Heaven on these stairs. I am not sure why anyone would build this unless they needed a decent spot for family pictures. What other reasons could you see for it? Exercise for sports teams?

Standing on table peeing?

Standing on table peeing? Sins of the Past? I sincerely hope this guy was let go after this snafu. Well, at least it will make for a good joke here for us.

Is there a drawbridge with this garage?

Is there a drawbridge with this garage? Actually, there is a proper explanation for this; this is one of Fast and the Furious stuntman’s garages.

The absolute last time, the railroad will ever criticize Chris Christie again.

The absolute last time, the railroad will ever criticize Chris Christie again. I have said it before, do not cross that man!

What an odd fire escape? I feel like I have seen this architects' work before?

What an odd fire escape? I feel like I have seen this architects work before. Not sure I would ever hire them though.

ConstrFail17 Either they have changed some things around here with the house, or they build the worlds smallest bleachers. It looks ridiculous to me./caption]

They have taken the term 'drop ceiling' a little too far, I believe. I can just hear the loudspeaker, "All patrons over 4 ft tall, please duck when exiting the escalator."

They have taken the term ‘drop ceiling’ a little too far, I believe. I can just hear the loudspeaker, “All patrons over 4 ft tall, please duck when exiting the escalator.” I bet they have trouble keeping their insurance.

Lazy or just plain dumb, the engineer and laborers clearly did not communicate before they began.

Lazy or just plain dumb, the engineer and laborers clearly did not communicate before they began. Stairs at the top of a ramp, just plain doesn’t make sense to me. Communicate with your team, people.

The scariest part of this propped up contraption is that there is nary a sign anywhere warning you to 'Cross at your own risk.' Personally, if I knew what was under that thing, there is NO way I'd come close to it.

"Thank you for coming today Mr. Trump, your car is parked right outside this door."

“Thank you for coming today Mr. Trump, your car is parked right outside this door.” Careful, that first step is a doozy.

That is certainly an interesting place to put a display case. I hope they moved it once they realized their mistake.

That is certainly an interesting place to put a display case. I hope they moved it once they realized their mistake. You can check in any time you’d like, but you can never leave.

ConstrFail24 Didn’t we just recently see another example of teams clearly not communicating? I don’t even know how you could fix this without creating more issues?’

Was it Sammy Hagar or David Lee Roth that sang, 'might as well JUMP!'

Was it Sammy Hagar or David Lee Roth that sang, ‘might as well JUMP!’ Brand new house, but just needs a couple improvements.
