    I never knew about this until about a year ago. True story of a mutiny that happened on board a Soviet warship that almost started WWIII. They said that this is supposed to be what inspired Tom Clancy's story about the Red October;

    I recently saw an interesting documentary on Hudson Yards in New York on an episode of Impossible Engineering on the Science Channel. The complex is built over a very large rail yard with 300 caissons placed between the railroad tracks. I wasn't going to post this, but a article popped up on Dailymail and the building reminded me of Stark Tower.

    I've always been fascinated by urban architecture. I don't know about some of these cities, though. I visited my brother in Miami a few years ago and I couldn't believe how many tall buildings are down there now. Everywhere you look there are buildings around 50 stories high. I like high rises but it just seems too me like it's getting to be too much . I would especially hate to live in one of those Chinese cities filled with giant super tall buildings that all look bland and homogeneous. I think it would get depressing.
