    The universe likes speed. Don't delay. Don't second guess. Don't doubt. When the opportunity is there, when the impulse is there, when the intuitive nudge from within is there, act.

    Most people have probably already seen this, it has been going around in emails for a while. Makes BWRs from up north look pretty tiny.






    EDIT: Actually... I think the pic above may be of the same machine?

    The heavy lift rig and ship movers... A rig is pretty impressive on it's own, but when it needs a piggy back.

    Going against the trend of large scale industrial and military machinery. I think this qualifies as machinery.

    I think this sort of stuff is awesome and it will be very interesting to see how far it can be developed.

    Imagine being a 17 year old who has lied about his age to get into the trenches only to stick you head over an see one of these monsters coming the other way...

    I am curretnly working on some additions to this ship - which has a 3000T crane on the back of it. There are a few floating around with 5000T cranes on them though. Amazing how they keep stable while lifting some bloody heavy units...
