My sweet friend Pauly just sent me a link to this very hypnotic video of Scotland’s Falkirk Wheel in motion, transferring a boat full of people from one canal to another, higher canal. It’s just beautiful. The Wikipedia entry explains that the canals are roughly eight stories in height difference, and the wheel turns on bearings that are four meters in diameter — wow! Here’s a link to the Falkirk Wheel’s website, and the video is embedded after the jump in case yer lazy today.
