DeadSplinter Up! All Night: Infrastructure

Good evening Deadplinterati! Biden finally got an infrastructure bill victory. I know it’s bittersweet but here’s to all of the roads, bridges, public transport and what not that will hopefully be fixed or at least brought into the 21st century.

As always – thanks for your support and for stopping by!

  1. This is not a song, although there is a soundtrack. It’s a video that was shared on defector.com of a bridge being moved over the waterways of Holland to its eventual installation point.

    The infrastructure there is astonishing, jawdropping stuff, and this video conveys how just a little piece of it is a minor miracle. Farscy could tell us more, no doubt.

     

    • tell you more.hmm..no not really…im not the best splainer in the world

      and anyways thats just a bridge getting floated into place….is that not normal elsewhere?

      the delta works are pretty impressive tho

      • Normal? Not here, sadly.

        But wow, the scale of that. Looking it up, it looks like they use the difference in water levels due to tides to generate hydroelectric power. Plus they have some nice wind turbines. We really ought to do more of that stuff. It’s not that hard.

  2. Don’t forget: childcare, paid family leave, and renewable energy are all part of infrastructure, too. [Or at least, they ought to be.]
