    Thanks for the history lesson. I guess I mixed some folklore in with my facts.

    My son did a summer meteorology class in the Colorado Rocky Mtns and they noticed some squirrels in the area acting "drunk" and the park ranger told them that the squirrels were "tripping balls after eating the local mushrooms".

    I grew up in Texas and as they say "Texas, it's a state of mind". Quick history lesson, Texas succeeded from the union during "the unpleasantness between the north and the south" and there were Texan's fighting on both sides. The Alamo was a classic example of politicians getting others to fight their battles for them. It seems that the US Government and Mexico had a small disagreement about were the border actually was and the understaffed regiment in the Alamo was asked to defend against an army of 5000 Mexican troops. Their intelligence had told them that it was a small poorly trained battalion. Visiting the Alamo is a huge disappointment, it's very small and surrounded by downtown San Antonio and makes you wonder , Why here?

    Nothing special but good cameos and if you like Bill Murray it's fun to watch. I especially like his guide through the various scenes.

    50 Years ago today...

    50 years ago today an article was published about how an Oregon town was going to deal with a 48 foot dead sperm whale. This is largely believed to be the first news story to go "viral".

    Old building tech - what is it?

    it appears to be a controller with a bus bar. Perhaps for an old elevator?

    That way you don't have to mess with turning it over.

    it's off center so it's an articulating bulb, "with side scan sonar", on a power boat hull judging by the chine just above his head
