"Oh My God."

Say it longer, say it stronger, I guess.

The only way this video could be improved, would be a freak fireball launching out of the building, and incinerating the annoying peanut gallery filming this.

Seriously, all those people can choke.

This proves what my grandma always told me; every time you take the lord's name in vain, God burns down a construction site.

The good Lord smote that construction site. The worker was a fornicator, or prolly ate shell fish.

I live about a mile and a half from this construction site. While biking to campus yesterday I saw the giant pillar of smoke. I had no idea the fire was as massive as it was. The problem is that an estimated 50-75,000 people are moving inside "the loop" here in Houston every year. Plus, we don't have zoning laws, so almost every empty lot is being turned into one of these giant apartment complexes.

If you are planning on moving to Houston and make a decent amount of money, I have a request: please stop pricing me out of the city. Thanks.

The pillar of smoke was there to lead the chosen people to the land flowing with milk and honey.

Of course, it's in Houston, so it could easily have been mistaken for a pipeline explosion.

I moved out of Houston after 1 year there. No zoning is just the start of its many, many problems, starting with the constantly-under-construction 610 loop, the daily traffic deaths, etc.

that was genuinely suspenseful. And terrifying.

I don't get it. So there's no zoning laws, which means property developers are buying the empty lots and building giant apartment complexes there where there used to be nothing. So now there's 100 apartments in each empty lot where there used to be zero apartments. Supply of apartments has increased to meet demand, keeping the price of rent low. If those buildings hadn't been built, rent would have been even higher as demand would have been chasing even less living space. Doesn't sound like zoning is the problem here...
If what you want is rent control, then that's a bylaw regulation.

let me be frank: i know zilch about economics

namtar - 2014-03-26

Rent economics:

Rent won't get any cheaper until supply meets demand and forms a new equilibrium.

In order to theoretically make rent cheaper either supply has to increase or demand decrease.

Developers will not stop building units until either the supply curve meets demand or they physically can't due to lack of land or similar.

If rent doesn't become cheap enough, people will seek out substitutes: finding roommates, living with family, or living in a van down by the river.

Do you use paper to build apartment complexes in America?

ashtar. - 2014-03-26

Why do you think we call it "construction paper'?

infinite zest - 2014-03-26

I'm assuming it's tyvek, but good one. Seriously, I was watching this already cheering him on (it's probably better muted) secretly hoping that some sort of action movie-esque jumping-away-from-the-explosion scene would be kinda cool. Guess I got my wish.

SolRo - 2014-03-26

if you think about it, a construction site is just the worlds most carefully made bonfire until all walls/doors/windows prevent airflow and sprinkler systems are added.

DavidBowiesLuckyTennisBall - 2014-03-26

Ah'm sew horrifayed, I cayn't stawp filming

boner - 2014-03-26

Amazing. There always has to be someone cracking jokes like he's watching it on TV.

That's just POETV LARP
