The Future is *ALWAYS* Unwritten

This is why one has to take an approach more akin to surfing than to bridging.

Bridges fall.

Ships sink.

Tunnels collapse.

And nothing on the surface of the ocean survives the 'rogue wave' but a decent surfer.

A surfer excels with competence in three things: his knowledge, his skill, and the quality of his equipment.

One of the movies I watched sometime back (about the Hopi prophecy rock) pointed out that when the flood arrives, many will attempt to cling to the bank, but this will prove futile, since the most turbulence occurs at the boundary conditions.  The safe thing will be to stay in the middle and float with the stream.

Both in life, and in 'real life', one needs to adopt the agility and cunning of a wave runner if one wants to stay on top.
