what was it? an industrial distillation column, on it's way to the industrial area. today, the president of the united states will talk to the united nations followed by [45 minutes later] the president of iran. and did you know, the new beijing-to-lhasa express is the world's highest railway, topping 13,123 feet most the way and climbing to 16,640 feet at tangulashan station. "at such heights, the ground never defrosts, so the tracks are driven deep below the ice into solid ground, flanked by special cooling pipes to keep the permafrost stable." isn't that just darn fascinating? just think twice before you decide to ride such a modern marvel, at those altitudes, you could come down with a wracking headache and even blackout.
i have 3 more nights with mom. did i just get s&cked into a black hole because time has escaped me once again.
