The London Eye. It takes multiple crews of thousands of hamsters working 4-hour shifts to keep this thing turning.

Kevin: The London Eye, also known as the Millennium Wheel, towers 450 feet over the River Thames. The wheel was built by British Airways for the millennium celebration, but opened three months late, in March of 2000. It uses six kilometers of Italian steel cable to maintain it's rigid shape. It reminds me of an enormous bicycle wheel.
