We’ve always been impressed by the massiveness of things that this planet offered us–Grand Canyon, Pyramids of Giza; there’s something for everyone. Amid that and our never-ending quest for building great things, we’ve cobbled a list of absolutely colossal things from around the world.
Some of these pieces have earned the prestigious Guinness World Records and we don’t question it. But seriously, what were you thinking?
