A friend sent this link to to me the other day and I thought it rather interesting. I seem to recall seeing an army of guys trying to do the same thing on the Discovery Channel a while back.

That really is remarkable. Just shows what can be
done.

I love stuff like that. All the worlds greatest minds coulden't figure out how they built that stuff, and here comes someone with just a real good grasp on basic, everyday, non-scientific, geometry and physics and show's
'em how it can be done.
Excellent.
I truly believe that the alternative fuel solution will be found the same way.

Just shows what can be done when you:
Are motivated,
Have too much time on your hands,
and are a little crazy.
But, it was a likely result as to how they did that stuff.
Puts my alien spacecraft theory to rest.

Just goes to show how the simplest solution is often the most elegant one!!

It was just on TV the other night. Don't remember what station. Pretty cool! Reminds me of the guy down in Florida back in the thirties who built the castle out of lime stone in memory of his lost love, or something like that. Did it all himself, moved tons of stone with the simplest of tools. Has a door on it that must weigh 5 ton, that can be moved with one hand. Impressive. https://i58.photobucket.com/albums/g273/PJ161/A-Icons/happy0034.gif

You are correct Patrick, and it is most impressive when actually seen in person too!!

Well, Anthony, that's true of the Stonehenge guy, but the Fl. guy can only apply his skills to the Pearly Gates or the gates of Hades (wherever he went!). /bcforum/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/jester.gif
