Historic Glitches

Now that we’ve been told by the DNCMedia, never once deviating from their OFA flash cards, that OgabeCare is suffering from a few “glitches”, here is another famous historical glitch:

In spite of a few initial glitches, transatlantic flight will become faster, more available and cheaper soon! The Hindenburg: It's More Than Just a Blimp!

    Tacoma Narrows Bridge AKA As Gallopin’ Gertie – A little structural engineering “glitch”.

    Kind of reminds one of the Obamacare / Healthcare.gov disaster – all built, millions of tax payer dollars spent and …it collapsed in a strong wind…..whooopsie. Maybe they should have “surged” some of the “best and brightest ” before the damn thing was built :em05:

    Ladies and Gentleman, I can report with complete confidence that our operations on the Western Plains are in fine order. It is correct that General Custer has encountered a minor glitch at the Little Big Horn but we’re confident he will have everything worked out shortly.

    What a coincidence. In March, 2011, Japanese power company TEPCO also reported a glitch at the nuclear power plant located in Fukushima. They recently measured a new record high level of radioactive emissions at 140,000 becquerels per liter, which I am sure means that they are well on the way to fixing this ‘minor inconvenience’.

    We could have fun with some of the Russki’s “industrial Accidents”, as well as the Chinese – if only we could find out what they were.

    Many years ago, an amateur ham operator heard somebody calling for help from orbit (this was in the 60′s) – and it wasn’t us. And they weren’t speaking English. For some reason, we never declassified this information (AFAIK).

    Hmmm….Seems that there was a little ‘glitch’ loading some fertilizer down there in TX a ways back 1947 To be precise.

    Apparently there was a glitch in our teletype machine. Now understand that correct order from Wannsee was to “Thrill all of the Jews”. Plans are underway to host big cultural fair and music festival, but fear attendance may be low due to prior miscommunication.

    Epic glitch- Bhopal India, Three Mile Island, Fukushima…….etc. etc. etc.

    See what happens when you outsource your IT and don’t observe the same regimen Apple did when some Iphone apps went tits up? Hint, Apple had a Night of The Long Knives Purge, stopped the bleeding, and moved on. The Government is doing opposite, giving Her Roehm a 15th chance, and putting a kiddies Band-Aid on a sucking chest wound…..

    Bravo, voters. Thanks for renewing these turds that won’t flush.

    I agree with Denninger. There will be zero solution to this that comes from the ballot box. Zilch. Zero. Zip.
