    halfbacks were invented to stop prop forwards taking over the world.

    Sometimes courage doesnt roar, sometimes it's the little voice at the end of the day, that says " I'll try again tomorrow."

    In July, residents of Melbourne’s Australia 108 building reported significant movement and large cracking sounds in what is set to become Australia’s second-tallest building.

    I have to add that, I take all this click-bait with a pinch of salt.

    It's like various transport authorities claiming they've detected X number of heavy vehicles with defects, of which Y had brake defects. A stoplight out is classified as a brake defect.

    Creaks and groans from a building expanding and contracting doesn't indicate imminent, catastrophic failure, but it does sell advertising space.

    If you don't like trucks, stop buying stuff.

    I meant Bobs post - all 3 buildings mentioned in the article were in Sydney. Or do we change the name to ‘Australia’s **** Buildings’? 😁

    It's to do with the building industry. And it belongs here. For continuity. Nothing more, nothing less.

    The name of the thread is " Fear of defects in Melbourne's tallest building". I think my post points out it may be a universal problem, not just Melbourne's. A holiday up in QLD , to chill out, is my recommendation.
