...I found it fascinating (maybe I'm just easily fascinated lol)
Maybe I'm easily fascinated too, because I also found it amazing. I always wonder when I see things like that, 'what kind of mind thinks up stuff like that....and has the knowledge to make it become a reality'.
...maybe need a new thread "great engineering feats" or something.
Perhaps a 'man-made and natural wonders' thread.
I had posted this from a local news source in the the spring thread, but it's since gone international when the Associated Press picked it up. Weird to think our tiny town is being seen across the world.
This is from a news site in England; using this link because it presents it as a slideshow:
I don't know if this fits in here exactly, but recently we watched an episode of "Nature" on PBS called "Santa's Wild Home". It's about the wildlife and their survival in Lapland, which is in the very northern part of Finland. I saw it was on again this weekend, and it was so good, I watched it a second time.
The footage is gorgeous, and I always wonder when watching nature shows like this, how painstakingly patient the videographers (is that the right word?) have to be to get such close-up and detailed footage of things that few people will ever see for themselves in nature.
The show, "Santa's Wild Home", is streaming on Nature's website; if you like wildlife and gorgeous scenery, this would be a good one to watch: www.pbs.org/wnet/nature/
