Recognizing Realities



I’m watching a History channel doc series call Engineering an Empire

all about the huge public works of various civilizations

and they often say the line modern engineers are astounded that they built these things without modern equipment

which just goes to show you how effective a guy with a whip can be over a lot of people with little shovels, picks and buckets.

no, seriously, it makes me wonder why, with all our modern equipment and knowledge, that what we build today, doesn’t compare to these ancient works at all

why aren’t we building cool places and public works anymore?
