Maybe it's a commercial for DukeNukem Forever game. :grin:

 

Like that game is ever going to come out.

 

The following things have been accomplished since Duke Nukem Forever was announced on April 28th, 1997.

 

The two Mars rovers, Spirit and Opportunity were proposed, authorized, announced, designed, launched and successfully landed upon Mars where they have been exploring the surface for years.

 

The International Space Station was assembled and has been orbiting Earth for over 10 years.

 

Things that have taken less time than Duke Nukem Forever's Development:

 

* The Beatles formed, released every single one of their albums and broke up. During this time they also toured the world several times.

* Led Zeppelin released 7 albums, 9 singles, and toured around the world, crossing international borders 27 times (not counting mainland Europe.)

* The Wright brothers designed and flew the first airplane.

* The theory of General Relativity.

* The United States' entire program to put a man on the moon, from Kennedy's challenge to the landing.

* The complete construction of many monumental buildings and engineering projects. To name a few-

o The Empire State Building (Jan 1930 - May 1931)

o The Channel Tunnel (Dec 1987 - May 1994)

o The Golden Gate Bridge (Jan 1933 - May 1937)

o The World Trade Center (Aug 1966 - April 1973)

World War II and the entire Manhattan Project. Yes, even the complete development of the atomic bomb took less time.

That is funny! I am going to have to use this at work "Product XYZ took longer to compleat than the empire state building!"
