    We may have the same problems here at home, but I do not think that they are nearly as bad..
    Our engineers do walk the tightrope, everyday.
    When lessons of disasters are only a memory we humans tend to get comfortable in our own knowledge, begin to believe that we have... or, even can... outsmart nature, and push the limits again and again. Especially if the memory is from history book and not our own lifetime. In short, we never learn.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.
