    - travelled the world 3 times over and potentially met someone who could have supplied not only the answer I seek but the meaning of life, the ideal way to make coffee and the best ceviche recipe
    But still not give an answer?

    Falkirk Wheel?

    Edit. Four years, '99-03

    Edit, to keep my ramblings* in one place. Bits of Crossrail?

    The new Borders railway took 3 years.

    Millau viaduct took three years.

    How long do Olympic Games hosts get to prepare? World cup? Other sporting events?

    On the blog. I've just copied it out of the word doc so the notes below the recipe might not make sense, I made notes and tried things and updated the recipe so the recipe is as I make it.

    Granville Bradshaw allegedly completely designed and prototyped the original ABC motorcycle (a boxer twin) in less than 130 days (ish) (IIRC). (and won his bet with Tommy Sopwith).

    Apparantly the lion's work of the design was done in 1 night, in the bath.....
