I've been to the hoover dam many times, have been down in areas you now can't get to because of terrorism risks.

Due to the number of people that died building that dam, and the incredible amount of BS the gov't and EPA have now, it would be IMPOSSIBLE to build that dam today. The engineers at the time did an absolutely amazing job and I would wager given the crap quality of everything built today compared with back then that if they did manage to somehow build it, it would fall apart within 50 years. And it would cost 1000 times (even after adjusting for inflation) what it did back then.
