Man vs. Mississippi
« on: May 20, 2011, 10:27 AM »
This picture inspires me.  Whoever built this levee is one bad ass dude.  I can just hear him thinking, "Ok, flood.  bring it.  Show me what's what."

Reminds me of the Lieutenant Dan scene in Forrest Gump where he climbs the mast of the boat during the hurricane and is yelling at God.

Now that's American ingenuity at its finest.

Bad ass? Nothing like understatement! :)

I can imagine some guy that:

  • Chews railroad spikes
  • Spits nails
  • Drinks lava
  • Pisses moonshine

And that guy is a pussy in comparison to the guy who built the levee there! :P

If he did, it was dry when he got there.

But surrounded like that, all you could do is drink whiskey and rye.
