Run a freeway through the middle of an office building?

Sure, why not. It's Japan. Go to town.

The Crocker Arctic Land Expedition

There's a lot of competition for biggest fail in the world today, but I still say that it's hard to fail harder than the failed Crocker Land Expedition. It's not so much the whole massive cost, ships stuck in ice, frostbite on a glacier, ill-equipped-rescuers etc., and not even the highly-suspicious killing of one of the Inuit guides.
