Did anyone see the program about 'it isnt easy being green' tonight?

It made me think that the amount of effort and time it took for that family to build a waterwheel and about 100 meters of aquaduct with modern quiptment was ridiculous!

If you think about the Eygptions the Greeks the Romans all of these great civilisations could build huge and magnificant strucutres in only a matter of years!, if the modern public tryed to build somthing like this with the tools they used and manual labour they had to endure we would fail miserably to even get them standing, never mind keep them up for over 2000 years!,

It just proved to me how the modern labour is bone idle and igronant!

Yeah! We need to bring back those thousands of slave labourers that the Egyptians, Greeks and Romans had so we can build more aqueducts. I vote we start with the current US administration [Wink]

couldn’t
thousands
hurt.
There
them /doesn’t refer to anybody
rooting /WTF here is a list of possible definitions for rooting

To give audible encouragement or applause to a contestant or team; cheer.

Doesn’t fit /Me goes to the next definition of rooting.

To dig in the earth with or as if with the snout or nose.

Doesn’t fit /Me goes to the next definitions of rooting.

1. To cause to put out roots and grow.
2. To implant by or as if by the roots.
3. To furnish a primary source or origin to.
Doesn’t fit /Me goes to the next definitions of rooting.

1. To rummage for something: rooted around for a pencil in his cluttered office.
Doesn’t fit /Me finds no more definitions for rooting

Ship /

What ship??

Lastly, this sentence makes no sense.
Edit: I just realized after posting that he meant to say "It couldn't hurt." This is why you need to know how to spell people.

Where I work, we have a lot of the actual "motivational" posters that the 'despair' posters satirise. I am considering sneaking this one in to see if anyone notices. [Wink]
