Just Because you CAN do Something, Doesn't Mean you Should

Post by munsi » Wed Oct 20, 2010 8:26 am

They called me mad to even consider it, but I’ve NEVER backed down from a bad idea, and so the work began.

Trillions spent, and armies working years on end. Lasers carving away tonnes of rock, rock taken out to sea.

I never lost faith the work would be completed.

But in dark times I wondered if I’d be alive to see...

And now, when I look out at where the Rocky Mountains used to be, I see an enormous statue of myself in repose.

And when I do, I can’t help but miss the skyline the way it was…

Instantly made me think of the statue of 'Arthur Dent Throwing the Nutrimatic Cup' in the H2G2 radio series. I think anyone would be disturbed by a giant statue of themselves. Anyone except Simon Cowell.

I cannot see why anybody would be disturbed by a giant statue of Simon Cowell.
