3 Dams Miscount Leaves China Redfaced

China’s iconic 3 Dams project on the Yangtze has become the laughing stock of the engineering world when officials found that they had actually built 6 Dams on the site. A project engineer who wished only to be known as Cao, told The Asia Beat, “I asked xxx xxxxx (name withheld) to count the number of dams on the right, and I would count the dams on the left. I should have specified MY right. I’m still not 100% sure how it happened.”

Plans are underway to rename it “The number of dams project.”
