Mega Stores

The colossal cornerstones of commerce. Oversized outfitters. Merchandise Moguls. Mega Stores are giant facilities engineered to keep up with America's supersized habits. They are the largest, busiest places in the country. Their greatest challenge: keeping up with demand on a massive scale. And to do it, they have everything from scuba divers to sandblasters. It's not what's on the shelves ŒË it's what happens behind the scenes of ... Mega Stores.

Big & Small

Size does matter. On Big and Small, we size up the biggest of machines, and their smallest counterparts. We go to France to find out what goes into assembling the world's largest jetliner, the Airbus A380. Then, we fly with microjet pilots in the world's smallest jets. We hold a race between a huge Boss Hoss 425 horsepower motorcycle and an 18 inch tall pocket bike. We take the world's smallest production car for a ride and see just how many choir members we can fit into a super-sized limousine. We see a mammoth Caterpillar front loader in action, in an open pit coal mine, and dig up the backyard with a loader that's no bigger than a lawnmower. Finally, we walk inside an enormous diesel engine powering an 80,000 ton container ship and eyeball a tiny one driving a five pound model airplane.

Dirt

You know the old saying "dull as dirt"...wrong! In Las Vegas, see how thousands of tons of dirt transform a stadium into a Supercross course. Then, join in the down and dirty fun of mud wrestling at a state fair in Hawaii. In Tucson, see how modern adobe and stunning rammed-earth homes are made. To farmers, "dirt" is "soil" and in a teaspoon of healthy soil there are more living organisms than people on our planet. Find out where they came from at a sprawling potting soil facility in central California where huge earth moving equipment adds tons of dried kelp, bat guano and other ingredients to dirt. At exclusive spas, watch patrons submerge their bodies in mud. Finally, visit the Tide detergent factory. Why? To get the dirt out, of course.
