Fui quod es, eris quod sum. I once was what you are, you will be what I am - epitaph carved on Roman gravestones.
That really is cool Tom...have you seen the discovery channel show?
The Millau Viaduct. Oh my God. I am in love. Not like Dubai love, but pretty fucking close. OMG. It's AWESOME.
It's gorgeous, especially the one where it's above the clouds. I want to bungee jump off the top. Not that I ever would. But damn.
You're not invited when I bungee it.
Here. Good stuff. It looks like they had to do it this way. I mean, they researched it and all, they didn't just plunk something like that down. They're French, not stupid.
Not neccessarily anyway.
Numerous organizations opposed the project, including the WWF, France Nature Environnement, the national federation of motorway users, and Environmental Action. Opponents put forward several arguments:
The westernmost route would be better, longer by three kilometers but a third of the cost with its three more conventional structures.
The french dont want to be bothered by a 5 hour drives through crappy farm communities where the only road side attraction is smelly little french kids hawking cigarette's......boom....Millau Viaduct......poor kids get real jobs.
That bridge ain't got shit on the bonnaroo ferris wheel.
engineers are overrated and fast-track and design-build are some of the worst methods ever used for construction.
You take the skyway, high above the busy little one-way
In my stupid hat and gloves, at night I lie awake
Wonderin' if I'll sleep
Wonderin' if we'll meet out in the street
But you take the skyway
It don't move at all like a subway
It's got bums when it's cold like any other place
It's warm up inside
Sittin' down and waitin' for a ride
Beneath the skyway
Oh, but then one day, I saw you walkin' down that little one-way
Where, the place I'd catch my ride most everyday
There wasn't a damn thing I could do or say
Up in the skyway
Come On Bug. You gots to feel it in yr heart. Yr heart.
damn you mob......why make it irrelevant.

it's better to build a highway in the sky than to rape the land and divide an ecosystem.
