Terrifyingly large, the Titanic. Unsinkable? How did it ever stay afloat?
Still I suppose I've seen bigger things transporting 1000s of Swedish tax-avoiders from Stockholm to do their shopping elsewhere.
We make smaller wonders now, or at least the Koreans, Japanese and Taiwanese do (often using ARM processors, though :))
Wonderful tumblr blog - I also liked the rather sinister U-boat sitting in a shipyard.

Yeah that's the one:) This one eventually sunk by British 'Liberator' bombers after refusing to obey the surrender order in 1945. It was salvaged, and went on display in UK museums apparently.

Ah, I didn’t know that. Thanks.

It's a lot prettier than the current arts we see funded by a way the Fuhrer would approve of.
