    "Look at all these little things! So busy now! Notice how each one is useful. A lovely ballet ensues, so full of form and color. Now, think about all those people that created them. Technicians, engineers, hundreds of people, who will be able to feed their children tonight, so those children can grow up big and strong and have little teeny children of their own, and so on and so forth. Thus, adding to the great chain of life. You see, father, by causing a little destruction, I am in fact encouraging life."

    I love big civil engineering projects! They are rearranging Reading railway station 17 miles from me at a cost of about £900 million. The contractors do lots of time-lapse vids such as this one: Caversham road railbridge
    And: Cow lane bridge

    beternal: Quoting Zorg from the movie The Fifth Element is a lot like quoting Hitler, be careful.

    Big liars disguise their lies with half-truths. "Encouraging destruction" is not the way to go.

    This was replacing a bridge that had decayed over time, not destroying it just for the sake of making work.

    On a the less serious side, this video as interesting to watch.

    This reminded me of the freeway overpass bridge near where I worked a few years ago. It took them TWO YEARS to rebuild it.
