Re: Things you remember watching but can't remember the name

I remember seeing this a few years ago. It seemed like it was made in the 90s. I remember three or so people from different fields, and they were in a castle or some kind of fort by the sea or something, walking around. I think at least one was a woman. They were having a long conversation about va...

Re: Oroville Dam (CA) and crumbling infrastructure

Can't bury lines where it freezes ... you know, I never considered that. Why is that? Is it simply because if there's a break in the line, you won't be able to reach it until the ground thaws? Or does the ground freezing noticably deform the lines and risk breakage? Living in Alberta, I'm used to p...
