The drill bit used to carve the last few feet of solid rock is a pretty spectacular sight. Take a look at the video feed here.
In passing-by, I had the opportunity to meet with the world's largest drill bit and ask a question:
- D: What manner of machine are you that can summon up rock without chisel or hammer?
- T: I... am a drill bit.
- D: By what name are you known?
- T: There are some who call me... 'Tim'...?
- D: ...greetings, Tim the Drill Bit.
In other news, I learned you can post just about thing in Craigslist, including a post soliciting exotic and ancient lumber for furniture-intended purposes, submitted by yours truly.
