Dude Builds Civ Wonder In Front Of Actual Wonder

When Peripatet was in Jordan visiting the ancient wonder of Petra, he had only one thing on his mind: dragging along a laptop and a copy of Civilisation V, and building the video game version of Petra in front of the real thing.

Yeah, there are easier ways of doing this — the Opera House wouldn't kill me, for example — but modern wonders like that or Notre Dame are easy to get to and play video games around. Petra is not.

Having worked his way up the opposite cliff face to reach a Bedouin's tent with a good view of the place (above), he got to work "beelining to Currency" (ie fast-tracking his way to the necessary tech required to build Petra).

With just 6% of his battery remaining, he made it. This is pretty much the face I'd make.

    Dude what? 2 articles in a row starting with Dude... does something.

    I was always told dude was slang for a camel's dick.

      It takes a very talented camel to build Petra in Civ V with it's penis, but he still deserves credit....

    Oh, come on. More stuff pulled from Reddit?

      Welcome to the new journalism, my friend. Enjoy your disappoint.

    Get a tumblr.

    This is kind of cool, but. Hey, thousands of years of REAL history embedded in stone and sand right in front of your eyes. Maybe actually have a look around and appreciate it rather than playing CIV...

      I'd Up Vote your comment more but I'm only limited to one.

      What do you think he would have done to actually get to his spot?

      I am doing the same! Next stop Sydney's Opera House !
