hoover dam, where can i buy some bait around here

Posted in Uncategorized by t2then on July 1, 2012

the hoover dam is truly a magnificent american achievement and it’s hard to describe in words the magnitude of the structure.  it took five short years to plan, design, and construct the dam (ahead of schedule and under budget as well) by hand.  this logistics of this project blows my mind when considering the coupling of scorching hot temperatures (this day it was well over 100 degrees), questionable work safety conditions, breakouts of pneumonia, lack of accessible roads to deliver construction equipment, and a laundry list of items that would make any contractor today cringe.  however, the completion of this monumental task shows that determination, fortitude, and a solid engineering plan can overcome all odds.  go america.
