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?
