Stonehenge is one of the most interesting places you can visit.  Try it in the early morning hours, in the fog - of course, its in England so most days are foggy. 

Stonehenge is a place where you observe and think.  You won't be picking up any specimens but you will think a lot about how these very large stones were shaped and moved into place.  So, was it just that back when men were men, 8 or 10 bubbas could pick one of these up and carry it - or did wizards really have magic wands?

Wally Wallington of Flint, Michigan may have figured out how Stonehenge was built.  Mister Wallington demonstrated that he can lift a Stonehenge-sized pillar weighing 22,000 lbs working alone.  He uses his favorite tool, gravity, and some pretty good ingenuity.

to see his marvelous technology. 

That block he is moving weighs 21,600 pounds - that is about like 100 pretty good sized men - and he is moving it by himself. 

What was it Archimedes said about levers?

“Give me a place to stand and with a lever I will move the whole world.”


John Tzetzes (12th century AD)
Book of Histories (Chiliades) 2, 129-130
