    Thanks for posting, pointshogger! I've seen half-completed and abandoned hotels and large buildings in too many cities around the world. Sometimes a "guardian angel" bails out these failed enterprises, but not always. It seems that the greater the egos involved, the larger the mess left behind.

    So far it's looking like the search for MH370 could belong on the list, but I hope this doesn't turn out to be true.

    I have walked the Great Wall in China, and wondered when does this thing end, almost hard as trying to figure out where the last planet is in the universe,

    We just say forget it, time is not on our side.

    Great world out there, at least someone made the effort to start it,

    The Panama Canal was started by the French, we finished it...gave it away, and now they want it wider...life goes on..,and never gets finished...
