    As rocks in endless stream, more video from WTF file, characterized by sinograms and hanzi (汉字/漢字). Because no-one else does anything?

    But auction sites carry page upon page of copy/ paste ads with 4" orange plastic calipers with crude vernier markings. Easily found, sorted by 'Lowest Price With Shipping' filter, or Items Closest To Me; albeit the tail end.

    I am imagining that is some variation of subsea rock distribution system. Looks like it might be onboard ship.

    Perhaps the rest of the story or similar.

    Meh. Past several years eeeee-verything is amazing; Space-X, election results, 9 latest connived genders, so-and-so's redcarpet outfit, vehicle body style of a 2021 indistinguishable 4-door; So amazing will be killing off that phrase; replaced by those which exist already, but with progressive intensity and applicability.

    Is this how the sea level is rising doom Sayers are going to do it one rock at a time until the ocean bottoms are filled with rocks from mountains that no longer exist.
    Man has dumped cubic mile after cubic miles of rocks in the oceans for 1000's of years. Maybe if we burry enough pipelines and build enough Islands hack off the tops of enough mountains in another million years the Earth will actually be a round globe then the sea levels will rise, OH! and lets not forget the natural erosion of soil and silt carried into the oceans from every river in the world every second of every day.
    Not for that word amazing, what's so amazing about being able to dump rocks over a pipeline the Ancient Romans and Greeks used to build pipelines out of rocks called aqueducts even managed to transport fresh water from main lands to Islands short distances across the seas now that was amazing in my book.
    I'm betting that if Elon Musk decided it would be profitable he would use his boring company to bore a tunnel around the world . He might even hire Van Ord to fill in some of the deep chasms with rocks so he could bore through them.
    OK maybe that might be going a little far but les some of the climate change worriers hear about Van Old burying pipelines in the ocean and the will start up some faux protest
    Never try to tell me it can't be done

    Toolmaker51, "but with progressive intensity and applicability." - you forgot 'inclusivity'.
    FrankS, Yep, so many ancient wonders and the scientist have no idea how most of them were built. All over the globe and more being re-discovered with ever increasing frequency,(or is it just that with the interweb we find out about more?).

    Lol. Forgot 'Inclusive' and its myriad derivatives. How insensitive of me.
    Meanwhile, folks adapting/ creating a different label for themselves, initiates segregation anew.
