读过 The Salmon of Doubt
Q: What do you consider the most interesting man-made structure in the galaxy?
A: The dam they are building at the Three Gorges on the Yangtse. Though perhaps "baffling" would be a better word. Dams almost never do what they were intended to do, but creat devastation beyond belief. And yet we keep on building them, and I can't help but wonder why. I'm convinced that if we go back far enough in the history of human species, we will find some beaver genes creeping in there somewhere. It's the only explanaion that makes sense.
Q: Have you ever been there?
A: I haven't been to the Yangtse since construction started. I never want to see the thing.引自 Interview With Virgin Airlines
