  1. In Santa Cruz the city sprays the bluff walls with Shotcrete, gunite or sprayed concrete to shore it from falling. I never understood why no other beach city does this.

  2. Like I keep saying, common sense is not so common anymore.

    Let’s sit really close to this unreinforced dirt wall, nothing will happen to us!

    And my all-time favorite to date is, let’s build a neighborhood, this land is below sea level, nothing could ever happen to us. We’re going to build dirt walls around us to hold back the water. So said the second designers of New Orleans.

  3. Ok
    If we can't sit under the cliffs why the hell do they place the lifeguard station directly beneath it!!??????
