Unknown Object Stops the Implacable Advance of Bertha the Five Story Tall Tunneling Machine

?????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

An unknown mysterious object that is very big and very tough has been discovered in the mud underneath Seattle.

The tunneling machine involved is known as Bertha. Bertha is 5 stories tall and 300 feet long. There is much speculation about what the unidentified object might actually be. The most popular theory is that it may be a massive boulder left over from ice age glaciers, others think it may be a historical part of the city that was built over.

Bertha is a high tech tunneling machine that is operated by a crew of twenty people. It was being used to build a 3.1 billion dollar underground highway when it encountered the object.

About Heretic

I design video games for a living, write fiction, political theory and poetry for personal amusement, and train regularly in Western European 16th century swordwork. On frequent occasion I have been known to hunt for and explore abandoned graveyards, train tunnels and other interesting places wherever I may find them, but there is absolutely no truth to the rumor that I am preparing to set off a zombie apocalypse. Nothing that will stand up in court, at least. I use paranthesis with distressing frequency, have a deep passion for history, anthropology and sociological theory, and really, really, really hate mayonnaise. But I wash my hands after the writing. Promise.
