Is this how Stonehenge and the pyramids were made? This Michigan man uses simple levers and stones to move massive blocks weighing as much as 21,000 pounds. The most amazing part is not that he uses simple tools, but that he does it by himself. Let that sink in a little bit. Today, even with modern technology, earth movers, excavators, bulldozers, cranes, backhoes, hydraulic machines, and huge heavy equipment, we still have a hard time moving blocks and large heavy pieces of equipment. Yet here this man is, using old technology, simple ropes and levers, to move huge blocks easily, and by himself. Now THAT is impressive.
