Response to Liberal_in_LA (Original post)

28. Shit, I guessed the answer correctly.

 

My first thought was, how is this defined? Why can't the interstate - in fact, the entire system of roads on any given continent, insofar as each road connects to every other - be thought of as a single structure? Same can be true of railways, irrigation and dam systems, and cities as wholes, connected by sewage and utility networks...

... and naturally we should all know that the pyramids and the Great Wall are supposedly the easiest man-made structures to see from space (excluding lights).

... Anyway, scrolling down but before I got there, I guessed what the answer had to be, or you wouldn't have asked the question.

Sigh.
