The 3 Gorges Dam is dis-gorging now because of heavy flooding in China

WOW, whatta an image:

That is truly an image of water under powerful natural pressure. The image was snipped from an LA Times story about the Three Gorges Dam on the powerful and very long Yangtze Jiang (River).

The article discusses the main +s and -s of that gigantic hydro-electric structure, and there is no lack of them. I was tempted to think that the journalists were being negative in the usual American MSM way about China and its oversized national image. But after reading the whole piece I realized it was an even handed report about the obvious limitations to extreme engineering projects.
