    I saw the amateur footage. There wasn't a glacier anywhere near the

    mismanaged.

    The first dam known to have failed in history dates to around the time of
    the pyramids... maybe a little earlier. Apparently it failed before it was even completed! Washed away! Pretty neat, considering that we're talking about ancient Egypt!

    India is enormous. It has over 1.3 billion people. If a person has only a
    1 in a million chance of experiencing something than it happens to over 13,000 people in India every day! But they're also underdeveloped. Like a year or two ago the government announced a priority to get more toilets,
    as even in their capital only as many as 50% of the people had access to a toilet!

    How come we never see this on the Travel Channel? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7m-cHRcq6DM&t=1m
