What about the guys sucking dick in the last car?!

That whole damn city is built on top of a lake, add all the earthquakes and you’ve got a completely unstable foundation ready to give at any moment.

Mexico is the textbook definition of a shithole country. I feel sorry for the victims and their families, but with rampant corruption and poor infrastructure, is something like this really a surprise? I found it hilarious when, during the height of the. Pandemic, some handwringing DLers were insisting Americans looking to leave the country should consider Mexico of all places.

If we don't pass the infrastructure bill, that's going to happen here in the US.

R3 I guess you've forgotten about the I-35W bridge collapse in Minneapolis that killed 13 people ironically the same as "shithole" Mexico.

1 out of 11 bridges here in the US is structurally unsafe.

I've got a friend who is a structural engineer who holds his breath when he has to cross certain bridges in Pennsylvania where 20% of the state's bridges are structurally dangerous.

It could have been me! I could have been killed in the Mexico City metro overpass collapse.!

The US infrastructure bill includes few actual infrastructure projects. It's mostly social programs like child daycare, not roads or bridge. Look into it.

Was this designed by the same woman that designed the Florida pedestrian bridge?

Which country is that city in again?

by Anonymousreply 1105/04/2021

R93 that's part of infrastructure, and it has something like $621 billion for what you seem to consider "classic" infrastructure (e.g. transportation only).

Don't take my word for it! Here's a link with the breakdown:

The dick sucking only occurs on the last car of the pink line. I got mine sucked there in 2019.

The cleanest subway system I've ever experienced (lots of cheap labor available), and no men at all allowed in the first car, only women and children.

by Anonymousreply 1605/04/2021

They shovel all the children into one car? That would greatly improve Amtrak.

by Anonymousreply 1705/04/2021

Great now they can claim asylum from falling trains too.

by Anonymousreply 1805/04/2021

R18 i don't think it's the Mexicans claiming asylum, it's the other countries like Venezuela and similar that are having big issues. They just travel through Mexico to get to the US.

by Anonymousreply 1905/04/2021

Well they better watch out for falling trains when they pass through Mexico, R19.

Some of the ELs in NYC are so rusted they look like they'll collapse at any minute.

by Anonymousreply 2205/04/2021

I spent a summer working in Mexico City. The metro was wonderful. Almost silent. The trains moved on rubber tires. After the NYC subway, these quiet trains were a welcome surprise.

Lana Turner has Collapsed!

It’s a shame that idiots believe the USA is really any different than Mexico. I mean seriously, we’ve had plenty of tragic bridge collapses too.

R25 And a few movie stars!

by Anonymousreply 2605/04/2021

R25 are you insane? Of course the US is different from Mexico. Go live there as a citizen and then get back to us.

Oh no! Did the cock sucking section collapsed too? I hope our resident cocksuckers were not in harm’s way.

Why doesn't Biden take the 100s of billions of dollars the government collects in gas taxes every year and use that money to fix the roads and bridges?

I'm living in Mexico now and I love it. Mexico City would not be my choice as I don't care for mega cities in general, but it is VERY popular with expats and digital nomads these days. As are many other areas of the country. Shit can and does happen everywhere.

Because the President can't "take" money. It's in the budget for specific purposes, or it isn't. And he doesn't make the budget. It comes from the House of Representatives.

I am going to publish a book about this and donate the proceeds to myself.

Outside the confines of a handful of resorts, Mexico is a literal nightmare. Some Americans try to romantacize it because they can't cut it at home and like living someplace with cheaper everything (apartments, food, hustlers), but nobody in their right mind would live there.

by Anonymousreply 35Last Wednesday at 8:55 AM

Mexico is pretty nice, actually. I spend a lot of time in Mexico City, for decades, and don’t understand the broad brush that people give the place. Never had a problem, even in the smaller towns where I’ve spent time.

I suppose it helps that I have accumulated Mexican friends over the years. I’ve got a locals perspective.
