Cheap Chinese junk, shoddy work, are we honestly surprised?

I laughed pretty hard, then stopped and became sad at the poor folks caught up in this trash heap, then became angered at their inability to engineer safe and sound construction.

Cheap Chinese junk.

That's gotta be what it was, if it were in the US, just another false flag, do they even have those in China?

Gas explosion?

As has been said previously there must have been some alterations made to the building and building regulations are not as stringent over there as elsewhere in the world.....and I'm sure turning a blind eye and brown envelopes stuffed with cash are relatively common occurrences.



Here come the jet fuel killing a steel building people...


Here come the CT's with their ridiculous and unrelated to this post comments.

Trump always said Chinese steel sucked!
Looks like he's right.

? Bit of an explanation please.

I thought I was clear in saying that I think it might be a gas explosion and that relatively shoddy working practices are comparatively common place in China.

That's one massive and totally unrelated leap you've made there.

ETA.

Oh, and I openly admit its just a guess and I could easily be wrong.

A truck full of fertilizer couldn't bring down a building built in 1977, but let's blame a steel structure complete collapse on a gas explosion...

FYI, this is NOT Oklahoma remember? think "Harbor Freight" only for buildings...

And have you ever SEEN a gas explosion?

Your first video is of an unfinished wooden house caused by subcontractors.

Your second video... Even though at the actual gas plant itself... Shows no damage to those metal buildings.

What's your point?

We're talking about a steel structure ..

5 star, or 5 story..

But yeah, China is renowned for their amazingly bad constructions.. but it does seem coincidental, for sure.

70 ppl though, doesn't seem worth the media attention.

Worst way to do it...

1977 predated LRFD design standards, so of course it didn't bring down the building. LRFD reduced the size of members and reinforcement needed to limit building costs and produce buildings intended to support DESIGN LOADS. Factors of safety used prior were way overblown and produced huge megaliths that cost a fortune and monopilized a lot more construction resources.

I see you flapping about steel buildings and such in this thread quite a bit. You an engineer?

At about 4:30 on the video embedded below there is a multi-story building LYING ON IT'S SIDE.

That should tell us a lot. Watch the video. They explain what probably happened.

All of those fancy building or regular buildings that are built in China are absolute garbage. They use that cheapest building materials available and brand new building, within 5 years looks 100 years old.

This has nothing to do with the virus but everything to do with the Chinese government making fronts to make themselves look competitive.

Made In China.



Even if it was deliberate, what is whacking 70 people going to do to stop a virus? If not to stop the virus, then why, to make a statement? Distraction? I'm not a CT so I suck at coming up with reasons for stuff like that.

I really think the thing plain old just fell over.

The Chinese government has gone on record as saying buildings in China only have a 20 year lifespan. Apparently it's very common for buildings to just fall over, filmed actually happening three times near the end of this video in fact... WARNING for the faint of heart, looks like a LOT of lives may have been lost...

Probably happens every day somewhere in China but doesn’t get reported. This is typical of the old Soviet Union as well.

Oh wow, that video is crazy, everyone should watch that, it’s unbelievable. No building standards at all in China
That was shocking
