>On December 7, 1987, disgruntled Pacific Southwest Airlines employee David Burke boarded Fight 1771, a BOAC BAe 146, carrying 38 passengers from San Francisco to LA. Burke, a man with a violent history, had been previously involved in a cocaine smuggling ring. After relocating to the West Coast and working for PSA as a ticket agent, he was fired for several petty thefts. His boss refused to re-hire him. Still carrying his PSA employee's card, Burke bypassed airport security with a loaded .44 revolver since most airlines at this time did not require security checks for employees.

>During the flight, Burke penned a suicide note on an airsickness bag reading "You've shown no mercy for me and my family, and you'll get none in return." He then got up and shot his boss, whom he knew was a regular passenger on the flight. As recorded by the CVR, a flight attendent rushed to the cockpit and informed the pilots "We have a problem." When they asked what was up, Burke replied "I'm the problem." and shot her, followed by the pilots. Burke then apparently pushed the control yoke so the plane began a steep dive. The CVR recorded one more gunshot, possibly Burke shooting PSA chief pilot Douglas Arthur, who was onboard the flight and may have been trying to head to the cockpit and regain control of the plane.

>PSA 1771 nosedived into the grounds of a cattle ranch at speeds exceeding 700 mph. The crash speed was so extreme that no sizable pieces of the plane other than the engine cores survived. Of the 43 people aboard, 27 were never identified. The gun was found with a piece of Burke's finger still clutching the trigger. For this reason, it was believed that he probably did not shoot himself and was alive and holding the gun to the moment of impact.

It seems to be time for a new thread.

For those of you who missed the first exciting instalment, I'm using OpenTTD to build a complete working virtual model of the entire British railway network. Ask me anything.

Stop cycling. Sell your bikes and start a healthy life of a respectable man. Stop ruining your prostate, spine, nerves and joints by crucifying your vunerable precious body on a bunch of tubes and gears. This is neither natural or sane thing to do. Stop shaming yourself, being a pathetic miserable sideroad roach, sweaty, smelly, dirty, looking likea clown in circus turning those wheels and entertaining those normal people watching you through the windshields of their comfy, luxirious SUVs, saying smthn like ''Honey, look at that man in the ditch, is that Rob that studied with you at highchool?'' ''Yeah hon, that's him, he was a nice kid back then, sad to see him fallen from grace. Give him a signal? Nah, don't want to embarass myself in from of the others. Btw, are we going to Dupont' wedding this weekend?'' So, hope you got the point, get a life. Also, some motivation from Jeremy, he's more elaborative on that.

The New Housing Crisis

No.1445955 ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport
Home construction per household is now at its lowest levels in nearly six decades, according to researchers at the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City. This isn't just a problem in San Francisco or New York, where home prices and rents have gone sky-high. It is also a problem in midsize, fast-growing cities farther inland, like Des Moines, Iowa; Durham, N.C.; and Boise, Idaho. In Boise, an analysis by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development showed there is a demand for more than 10 times the number of homes being built right now.

A fascinating AEI dataset shows that entry-level houses are worth on average 50% more than they were at the beginning of 2012. That's a significantly faster appreciation than the "move-up" segment of the market, which has risen by 38% over the same timeframe.

Denver, Seattle and San Francisco have seen entry-level homes rise in price by more than 75% since 2012, while Las Vegas prices have risen 89%.

Context: The cost of building any kind of housing has never been higher, thanks to a confluence of factors. President Trump has slapped tariffs on Canadian lumber (which remain in place even under USMCA)

Affordable housing isn’t affordable to build," the National Apartment Association's Greg Brown tells Axios. As America urbanizes, the apartment shortage is growing even starker than the shortage of houses.

Rising house prices also exacerbate Nimbyism. The more your house is worth, the harder you're likely to fight against upzoning initiatives that increase the supply of housing in your neighborhood. The fewer the units being built, the more that supply constraint pushes prices up in a vicious cycle (that's great for existing homeowners' wealth).
