National relativity

China builds a new city every week, but in the US, replacing one water main on one street takes a year.  And somehow, even though the project encompasses two miles of street, all of the construction is happening at the corner that faces my apartment.  Maybe they are doing some kind of street surgery, inspired by laparoscopy, where they only dig in one place but they push the pipes miles to the side.
