“The longer the concrete is submerged in sea water, the stronger it becomes, as a mineral mixture of silica oxides and lime grows between the volcanic rock aggregate, which in turns hardens all the components into a single, unyielding piece. Jackson explained how this is different from our current concrete to Time:

“Contrary to the principles of modern cement-based concrete, the Romans created a rock-like concrete that thrives in open chemical exchange with seawater.” She said, adding, “It’s a very rare occurrence in the Earth.”‘

“The Pantheon in Rome, still in use over 2,000 years after it was built, is a testament to the strength of ancient Roman concrete. Once a Roman temple, it has been in continuous use throughout history, and since the 7th century has been used as a church dedicated to “St. Mary and the Martyrs.”‘

The word "shar,pest" is now a banned word here. Along with, "sh.it" but "#@#@" is perfectly fine.

I'd like to know how the idiot who runs this board is able to function in the real world?
:rolling:

Really?

can you name one arguments you've ever won with me? Can you ever name a time I asked you a question and you answered it?

Oh, that's great, Pissy.

If you ever run into her make sure to ask her about the great mystery of how many licks it takes to get to the center of a Tootsie Roll Pop?
