    That's ridiculous, I wouldn't stand under that without a 300 foot pole.

    I sure would like to see more detail, that wall is huge, is it just part of an assembly of huge walls sections. What are they building a dam?

    I'll await his forehead slap when the engineer arrives; CAD drawing improperly oriented, wall supposed to be on edge...

    How are a handful of guys supposed to hand position this, when the norm is tending lines from the corners?

    A towering frame made out of rebar? For some kind of massive slip-form concrete monolith? Or did the engineer forget to tell 'em it's supposed to go sideways? And they're trying to set it in it's concrete bed which doesn't look to be that deep by hand?

    And who's the guy gets to stand back and 'plumb it' by eyeball? I want to see the 'After' pics on this!
