Holy Freaking Hell, This Saw Cuts Through Mountains

Tech puts us in a state of awe all the time. Sometimes it's the little things. The transistors. The immaculate pixels. The gorgeous lens. And then sometimes it's a humungous goddamn saw in Kazakhstan that obliterates everything in its path.

Holy Freaking Hell, This Saw Cuts Through Mountains

The Godzilla saw towers over 300 feet, weighs over 45,000 tons, costs $100 million, and can scoop 4,500 tons of mountain guts (that's what I call coal) per hour—per hour—leaving a gaping rock cavity in its wake. Luckily, you can outrun it, as it has a top speed of one mile every three hours. Just don't let it sneak up on you. Especially if you're a mountain. Because it's probably there to saw you apart.
