Oh seneca, how you've warmed my heart this evening.
There is no "e" in "tacos" unless you're trying to daterape someone.
The world is a stage, but the play is badly cast.
Is this something that has a legitimate possibility of being passed, or is it just some crackpot's bill?
I thought you moved out of NC last year or something? Yeah, between this, Amendment 1, and Fracking, NC decided it wanted negative national attention, I guess.
Feels like this thread title is very misleading. From what I read in that link, no one is banning anything. They're just proposing that city planning not take into account actual data regarding sea level predictions. This equals more permits to be handed out and more cash in their pockets directly. I don't feel like I need to rant about this though... local politics has enough problems.
I almost wouldn't care, if it wasn't for my own tax money that will be used to rescue and repair the flooded towns.
Even ignoring any political motivations behind it, from an engineering perspective it's fucking retarded. Legislating that civil engineers must ignore an environmental hazard is unethical and unsafe.
What part of NC? I'm in the Raleigh area.

Yeah, between this, Amendment 1, and Fracking, NC decided it wanted negative national attention, I guess.You're correct but I was still weighed down by a car note that had me living check to check at the time when I struck back out on my own. Basically, my temp assignment in NC ended and a "friend" back home lined up a job for me and guaranteed me indefinite free rent until I could get set up in my own place. Only 2 weeks into being back in New Orleans his "partying" got him fired from his job and cost us the house he was renting and I wasn't yet making enough to get everything together on my own. I miraculously got my own apartment a few weeks later but still wasn't making enough money to hold everything together on such short notice and I ended up desperately trying to find the cheapest ways that I could rent by moving in w/various other friends/acquaintances for temporary solutions and eventually turned in the car that was bleeding my wallet. I ended up getting fired from a job I'd been at for 5 months (with perfect attendance) because of oversleeping for a morning shift by two hours because my shitty phone's alarm glitched and never went off. You'd think they would've called me 20 or 30 minutes after my shift's start time to see what's up. After a little over a very tumultuous year's time, my options ran out and I've been back in NC begrudgingly trying to get back home since. I'm very homesick.
