Large aquariums and weak floors

I read a many posts from aquerist worried about their floor failing under the weight of a large aquarium. Has it happened to you or someone you know? A large tank IMO would be 100 gallons or over mgamer20o0.

Not one shred of evidence supports the notion that life is serious.
