filling the void

I followed a wikipedia link today from someone's presentation online.


There's something perverse and exciting about machines of this size. It's a no-holds-barred, evolution-could-never-come-up-with-something-like-this, freak of nature.
It's a machine that is 240 meters long and 96 meters high. Can you even perceive the sheer size or a man made moving object of that size? It boggles the mind!
13500 tones. Comparing it to 1350 cars just doesn't seem to do this justice, because just the fact that 1350 cars boggles the mind too.

Man is the master of nature, and not the other way around. It's so clear to me now.
