    I am a party chief in the oil fields of northern Alberta. Exploring is my job. My side job is scouting for new spots. I am in the bush over 300 days a year.
    If the world is warming why are there so many new snowflakes?

    If we are all equal why do you demand special treatment?

    There will be no one vaccinated at my hunting camp cause I donít hunt with little bitches!!!!

    The structure from level 23 was built out of plumb ~ 20 mm floor over floor to the west to compensate for the weight of the superstructure growing to the east.
    It is anticipated the structure will find its equilibrium in 14-20 years
    the structure was also placed on the lot considering a detailed study of plate tectonics here on the west coast., meaning that we know which way the earth is gonna move if there is a big earthquake.
    it has a better chance of being hit by a meteor and falling over vs falling over in a seismic event .

    Hell ya who was structural engineer and who did the concrete testing great job man!!!

    How many floors where finished before you poured the roof?? How long did it take for the top slab pour did you use a cycling pump or did you crane the mud.?

    Pretty cool man... did any one drop anything big?

    You shoud be proud.



    Who supplied the mud down there and whats the price per m3 ,in van these days...on rainy days did you just pour and grind after or did you flood with agilia after...

    Something of that volume i would have bought the steel from china and a bender and highered the sub install crews direct..and paid heavy... i mean if i was in that buisness.
