Let us know you're all right.
I was thinking about that too.:frown1:
Well, if any of them are dead, you're not going to hear from them.
You have a fine eye for the obvious. :biggrin1:
Damn... I f I stay here for another two, three or five years, will I learn to understand you?

Read this 15 killed amid panic at Germany's 'Love Parade' - CNN.com
No pandas were harmed in this disaster.
Wait, was Luka going there? :wink: Seriously the local polizei did not handle the crowd control well at all.
May all those who have LPSG and that festival in common be safe.
No it did not.
It used to be a pretty good organized parade in Berlin with regularly over a million party guests, then the numbers decreased and it was canceled a couple of times because of funding difficulties, the last couple of years they decided to move it, it now takes palce in the ruhr region. The most heavily populated region in germany, it took place in Essen and Dortmund was supposed to take place in Bochum and now Duisburg.
All those cities are significantly smaller than Berlin and do not provide the same infrastructure, and there are hardly any experience values with events that big on the locations. I think this is part of why this bad location with the tunnel that ended up as a deathtrap being used as a bottleneck entry got chosen.
Only if I decide that I want you to.
I was going to ask "What's Duisburg", assuming it to be another of Hick's "inanities", but Tramp cleared that up for me. Tragic.
Then I noticed a puppy. They, like chickens.
Not if you would ever like your sanity to stand up in a court of law.
Besides me, there is only one other person on this board who completely understands the Hikkstuh.
You scorn the insanity defense?
Not by definition, but it's a pallid last resort. :wink:
Well, in extreme cases ... it's the only resort.
Present company accepted.
I'm performing in a musical in Essen, Germany at the moment. We were in Duisburg, which is only about 20 minutes away, this afternoon. We had a great time and didn't even realize this tragedy was taking place. We found out about it when we got to the theater. It occurred in a passageway tunnel that led from the city to the fields where we were. Because of the amount of people and where the stampede took place, I can't imagine how police or rescue workers could have ever gotten there in time to prevent or curtail this from happening. Just a tragic accident.
Well, I'm glad nothing happened to you, Stretch.
This sounds like one of those strange unpredictable things that life throws at us.
We never have a frigging clue how a day will end.
i think it's ery sad ...the interviews for TV that the festival visitors gave were all the same...the people were running and stamping over the people on the street.
and nobody could breath or move out of this tunnel.
i think this is a horrible situation
