I have to admit, when I saw
Wally Wallington...(Thanks Curtis Curtington)
it crossed my mind that this was an early April Fools prank, but no, not at all. Very impressive indeed.

Fascinating. PBS could have used him in their "Secrets of the Dead" series.

Engineers are very much alike, whether they are in the traditional engineering fields or are "system engineers" and whether or not they have the title or not. Give 'em enough time and they'll typically figure out a way to do things others think are impossible with whatever tools and resources they have on hand. :)

share your knowledge with others. With the power of so many minds working on problems and sharing their accomplishments, who knows what we will accomplish?

Thanks - an inspiring message.. for not only technology but for all aspects of human endeavor .. conquering of disease, eliminating famine etc., etc.


If everything seems to be going well, you have obviously overlooked something.

Sometime back you asked us about sayings we though were interesting, great, or worthy. Someone added to the list "It is only impossible because I have not done it yet" That appears to be Wally's motto.

Great find and inspiration!

Glad you enjoyed it and both a few friends and my son have asked it we can do this. We may give it a try sometime!

Aristotle and Archimedes would be proud (one of them would be).

Archimedes:

"Give me a long enough lever and a place to stand, and I will Lift the World"

And Aristotle had his students expound on it (formalize that out).

Your lack of planning does not constitute an emergency on my part...unless you're my manager...or a director and above...or a really loud-spoken end-user..All right - what was my emergency again?

I was there to see the rocks and I did not find it amazing. Maybe it was me.
First no on knew why those rocks were there, it was not a building, someone suggested maybe it was a place to worship. But they were a whole bunch of rocks. But the pyramid and the Great wall was built by people and with the technology at that time it was unbelievable how they could build such monument.
