Falkirk Wheel - Falkirk Scotland
The Falkirk Wheel takes about as much energy as it would to boil about 8 kettles of water
What? WHAT? What? WHAAAT?
Wait isn’t that the thing from that movie with Jodie Foster and the aliens?
Apparently this is a real rotating boat lift from Scotland and according to the UK tourist website it is indeed so well balanced it actually takes only 1.5kWh of electricity per rotation and that makes me so happy.
Engineers are magicians.

Heheheheheheh foreigners make me giggle.
I live in Falkirk and as soon as you say that to anyone all they know about it is that the Falkirk wheel exists. That or the Kelpies.
