I guess there are some things you just can't plan for huh? I mean who would have ever imagined, the remote possibility of 'A Bird' landing on a power line? Has something so crazy ever even been thought of, let alone witnessed within all known recorded history? (Thick, Heavy, Obvious Sarcasm Implied)
So am I or others supposed to feel real confident about the equipment running the airports now? Thank god it was only a little bird. Just think if something major had happened, like two toilets being flushed at the same time, the whole damn place could have collapsed!!! I don't know which is worse here, the fact that the "Bird Theory" was used to cover up something more sinister, or that the 'Bird Theory' is actually true, and LAX is so fragile that one tiny bird can actually cripple the Power and Communications of the whole airport!!
