Some northern Virginians have discovered that late-night crane watching can be free family fun....ever. Come on, people. You're not thinking of the children. Think of the children. Take them to Six Flags or a water park or something.
Two weeks ago, when crews hoisted the first three of six 100-ton beams onto massive bridge piers, more than 100 people showed up to watch.
"It's almost like an old drive-in theater," said Steve Titunik, primary spokesman for the Department of Transportation's Springfield Interchange Project. "People bring their children and make a night of it."
Who wants to sit around watching construction equipment in action? Really boring motherfucking people, that's who. What's more boring, this or the smelly flower? I can't decide.
