    I like it when people put a little dialog on pictures, it gives me a perspective on what's going on etc. (much like the cotton picking thread). A lot of times it's information way out of my field so even though it's basic information, it's new to me. :smile:

    A reconstruction of a Roman crane. If it had to do with engineering, you can bet the Romans had it. From Wikipedia.
