As Homer would say... D'oh!!!

Just had to share this photo...



I'm always fascinated by engineering blunder/disaster type things and I would love to be able to wander around on one of those platforms just to look around (albeit one that's a little less tilted ;), but I would NOT want to be the guy who had to explain to his bosses how the f___ that happened.

Granted, there was a hurricane blowing through there recently, but apparently those rigs are designed to handle much worse weather so there is some question as to whether human error was involved. Man, I would hate to be the human who made that error. S/he will never live it down ;)

(an article about it and more pictures)
