    You have got to read this crap to understand the sick mentality of these guys at Harvard. These are the ones teaching fresh, young minds. And it seems that a degree from there somehow bestows Godhood on the holder.

    Decades into researching this tremendous feat of engineering, the question of how Americans ever mustered the ingenuity, determination, and resources to pull it off remains veiled in mystery,” said Harvard researcher Pritam Singh,

    Having given more guided tours to the dam than I can count, I can only tell you that this was one of the most well-planned, organized, and managed construction project ever. A well-organized company town designed for the worker’s families – only married men were hired. And a casino and Cat House conveniently nearby.

    Yeah, but I figured if the OP thought the story was real, he may not get the subtlety of your question...

    I don't know the exact details so it must have been Jesus who built it

    I'm pretty sure The Onion spun off from CNN

    I want comedy on the interwebs I head over to Cheezburger. Best memes on the internet. The parenting ones are hilarious

    And if my death in 15 or 20 years feels like it’s too far in the future to wash away your blues, you can take heart knowing that I’ll start to physically and mentally deteriorate well before then. Why, by 2020, I, a man who recently tried to extort the sitting president of the United States to release his college and passport records, might even begin to show signs of serious and unavoidable decline in mental and physical faculties, and doesn’t that just perk your spirits right up? Just imagine me shuffling along, hunched forward, with a noticeably shortened gait and perpetually haggard face. Heck, that might happen by the end of this decade!
