If at first you don't

If at first you don't succeed, fail fail again.

The human desire for permanence and indestructability is something I find amusing, in a universe where permanence and indestructability are literally impossible.

Nice quote, I might add to this it is the ego and hubris of our species that keeps us dreaming while pragmatism always has to bitch slap humans into reality.

There is not one building, one book written, one monument built by friend or foe that will last forever.

as i recall, according to "life after people," the little aluminum pyramid atop the washington monument will come pretty close.  also the gold ingots in fort knox, since gold pretty much reacts with nothing.

which means joseph smith's gold plates are still out there somewhere...

Nope. Eventually the little aluminum pyramid and the gold ingots will eventually be consumed. They are all impermanent.

Locally this guy is considered

 

 

a nutcase. He has the money to build the ship, however. To be honest, I think a trip on an authentic reproduction of the Titanic could be a bit of a hoot.
