But what I really think we should build to bring our debt levels in line with the rest of the world is a pyramid.
Yes, that's right. After we stop painting the Harbour Bridge, it will rust away to nothing in a hundred years. A tsunami is sure to get the Opera House sometime in the next millennium. What have we really got in terms of durable architecture to tell the people five thousand years from now how great we were? Nothing. So, a pyramid. Instead of this pissant little monument to commemorate the birth of the Australian Labor Party, we should have taken all that stimulus funding and built a ruddy great pyramid, as in the cheap and nasty photoshop artist's Google Earth impression below:
The Great Pyramid of Barcaldine, before addition of marble facing and golden bit on top.
I have gotten up at three in the morning to post this, I reckon it is such a great idea.
