inthefade: This is a tunnel boring machine. They’re using one in New York to extend the 7 line subway. My dad’s friend is the engineer on the project and he invited him down to come see this thing at work. So Todd convinced him to take us with him when he goes. Is it strange I am uber excited about this?  Watch this video (which you can’t see in the dashboard version of this post) to check out just how ENORMOUS this machine is and what it does. Can’t wait. Yeah, it seems like quite an awe-inspiring example of man’s ingenuity and blah blah blah. But let me leave you with this single question: What will happen when the squirrels get possession of one of these? I fear the worst.
