Those things are common as mushrooms in a lawn around here.

Still cool though.

I was taking my pre-employment tour with a safety officer at Black Thunder, and we were parked several hundred yards from the spoil pile Ursa Major (the largest dragline in North America, IIRC) was dumping on. The truck shook every time a load hit that pile.

That machine made me feel very small.
