Near the port city of Chittagong in Bangladesh, lies one of the largest ship-breaking yards in the world. It stretches for 18 km along the coast on the Bay of Bengal where more than 200,000 Bangladeshis break down up to 100 ships a year. Working under hazardous conditions, workers rip apart ships with their bare hands and a blowtorch to assist, dissecting the ship bolt by bolt, rivet by rivet. Every piece of metal worth salvaging is carried on to waiting trucks in the shoreline to be carried away to furnaces where it will be melted down and fashioned into steel rods. The steel accounts for half of all the steel in Bangladesh.

Over the Garden Wall — Behind the Scenes
It’s no secret we’d do just about anything to support the wonderful work of former Adventure Timer Pat McHale, so it shouldn’t be a surprise we’d post this behind-the-scenes video for his upcoming Cartoon Network project, Over the Garden Wall. It looks so good!
