Liftoff: Greyhounds have explosive acceleration. Even Bang. When they start they gulp huge amounts of air into their oversize lungs to oxygenate their blood, which they have more of than other dogs, at a higher pressure and which is very high in erythrocytes, to supply their overabundant fast-twitch muscles. They are indeed sprinting machines.
Of course, a small cut will spray blood all over your house….

Irish Bar, Greyhound: I met this shy girl outside a pub near the Chicago Ave. station. She’s newly fostered, soon to find her forever home. A new world awaits, sweetie!

Yep, She’s a Goner!: The remaining half of Chicago’s Wells Street Bridge about to be removed. One of the engineers on the project kindly confirmed my suspicions that they did indeed plan to (carefully) cut the span loose and (gently) drop it onto the barge below. The shipping containers surprised me, but a quick Google and I lernt that shipping containers are extremely well built.

Carrying a Torch: And using it too. They are here cutting the top chord of the truss, which will of cause cause the bridge to gracefully sag onto the waiting barge.
