    If humans got extinct, what evidence of our civilization would surive?

    Interesting documentary. It shows how quickly most of evidence of our civilization would disappear:



    It claims that after 10,000 years, only few structures would be still recognizable on Earth's surface.

    Such as:

    - Mount Rushmore - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mount_Rushmore
    - the Hoover Dam - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hoover_Dam
    - the Great Pyramid - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Great_Pyramid_of_Giza
    - the Great Wall of China - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Great_Wall_of_China
    - possibly the Great Anti-Mexican Wall of Trump too (if he really builds one)

    Archaeological remains in the ground & human skeletons/fossils would survive for the longest time.
    There are words which carry the presage of defeat. Defence is such a word. What is the result of an even victorious defence? The next attempt of imposing it to that weaker, defender. The attacker, despite temporary setback, feels the master of situation:

    The aluminum apex from the Washington Monument will also survive for a very long time:

    I recall a documentary I saw a while ago, that said the Pyramids would probably survive a few thousand years without human maintenance.

    Well, Catalhoyuk is still here after 9,000 years, but it's in ruins so perhaps it doesn't count?
