    it makes perfect sense, big innovative creation that makes me feel like 10,000 people are going to die because there's probably something unsafe about it.

    No it doesnt, 10, 000 people is the max scale this structure can be built for but it can be downscaled to hold a max of 50 people. This is not meant to be built once, its a reusable design that can be built in dozens of different sizes an unlimited number of times. The structure that can be either built on land or water. This building is a thousand times safer than your local baseball stadium. I personally think that to compare a "house" with a transatlantic is a bit absurd.

    i wasn't analyzing it that much, from a generalized perspective, it makes plenty enough sense to say it. who cares?

    but also do consider the titanic was a new thing considered perfectly safe and there were things left from the equation making it a danger. unless you're an incredible architect you're not going to be able to speculate what's missing from it. i can make the perfect plan but once you apply trial and error you're going to find out what you missed pretty quickly.



    ** i didnt see downscaled to 50 people, now i see why you think that, makes sense**
