  1. errrrr, cross, actually ๐Ÿค“
  2. Dang! That's not good. Can't have you sidelined for any length of time.
  3. I prefer to call it the "anti-European" meal ๐Ÿ˜…
  4. I have heard nary a word about any Texas University indoor football practice facility with an eight-lane track. I'll believe it when I see it. They don't have the land for that.
  5. https://www.telegraph.co.uk/art/architecture/kengo-kuma-japans-olympian-architect-age-skyscraper/ "In 1964, the year Japan last hosted the Summer Olympics, 10-year-old Kengo Kuma went to Tokyo with his father to look at some of the new venues that had been built for the Games. Until then, little Kengo, who loved cats, had dreamed of becoming a vet. But the moment he set eyes on Kenzo Tangeโ€™s spectacular National Gymnasium, with its sweeping suspended roof and undulating concrete base, he changed his mind: he would become an architect. More than half a century later, Kuma โ€“ now 65, and one of the most respected architects of his generation โ€“ has designed his own Olympic arena: the 60,000-capacity National Stadium for the 2020 Games that, were it not for Covid-19, would have been starting this month." Interesting article about Kuma, with his thoughts about a move away from skyscrapers and the use of different building materials.
  6. Time lapse video of dome being inflated.
  7. Heck, I eat dinner at 4:30-5:30 almost every day.

    Key Maps Store previously EDIT: Interestingly also the address for Seawall Specialty Co., which had many historical prints/publications.
  9. Great shots @ChannelTwoNews! Especially like the second photo. These show just how huge the project is.

  11. Because right now it exists only in people's imaginations. I have ridden tens of thousands of miles on trains in my life. They serve their purpose, but not here, in my mind. I understand that others heartily disagree with me.
  12. Just as most of you love skyscrapers, a concept I find to be outmoded (I'm more of a low-rise architecture fan), you appear to love this fantastical train idea. I would prefer public investments go to designing and implementing highway changes/upgrades to safely handle autonomous vehicles. Let's see what happens. I'm willing to bet that if this thing does come to fruition it will cost north of $40 billion and a large chunk of that will be taken from the public wallet.
  13. "...monies we hope to receive from President Trump's infrastructure stimulus through the Department of Transportation" that money is not a loan The original proposals for this project touted private money only. They assured folks that no tax money would be used. As expected, that was a lie.
