Yesterday, Dave and I toured the biggest building (by volume) in the world - the Boeing commercial plane plant in Everett, WA. It's hangar doors shown in this photo are football-field size and are decorated with the world's largest digitized graphic images! Driving by the building is, needless to say, awesome. 
This is where they build 747s, 767s 777s and assemble the new 787 plane. During our tour inside, the guide filled our heads with facts like a 747 requires 90 gallons of paint and that paint weighs 595 pounds and also in production, men and women get the same pay, $35/hour. (And a lot of those facts "didn't stick"! It was overwhelming!)
