The local hosptial noticed a huge explosion of unusually foul-smelling births the following November. The sign style is futurous.

A bronze sculpture titled "Eternal Flame." It's from 1986.

A bronze sculpture titled "Eternal Flame." It's from 1986.
According to the text carved into its base, it's supposed to be a flame "represent[ing] the light of knowledge." Okay!

It makes sense that knowledge is light and fire is bronze. Personally when it comes to light, I prefer ambient sunlight to having to wo…

There are two versions of the story of why sliders are called sliders:

1) The sandwiches, being sopping wet and slippery with grease, move easily and wetly down the throat: They "slide right in."

2) The sandwiches "slide right in" as explained above; an…

Alright now look carefully: In front of the Wendy's sign there is a lightpole. Now see how I carefully composed the picture so that the top of the lightpole wouldn't touch the bottom of the ROADSIGN GANTRY. I am very proud!

The Twin Peaks Reservoir; the faraway Golden Gate Bridge; and a young fella in descent.
All over the internet I'm reading claims that the Twin Peaks Reservoir holds 10.5 million gallons of water, so I guess it's true. So you can use this picture to calibrate your understanding of what 10.5 million gallons of water looks like.

Hiking trail through this heathland/these heathlands of the Dolly Sods Wilderness.

Hiking trail through this heathland/these heathlands of the Dolly Sods Wilderness.
1) This is a "heathlands" because late-19th-century clearcutting led to wildfires that burned away the topsoil.
2) This is a "hiking trail" because floodwater scours away the shrubby plants as it barrels down the hillside unimpeded.
3) This is a "wilderne…

Footpath through delicious blueberries and/or huckleberries.

Footpath through delicious blueberries and/or huckleberries.
Until the late 19th century this was a forest of spectacularly huge red spruce and eastern hemlock trees, sitting atop seven to nine feet of humus!, but oh well. "Barrens" are special too, I guess — especially if you're a huckleberry or a snake or a rock!…

But spending long periods of time standing and waving at passing traffic is widely understood as leading to a dead end in life.

Landscaping and nonlandscaping, with a concrete wall between them.
I often see this style of wall used for shielding people's eyes from views of dumpsters. And the woodland beyond it is just as ugly as a dumpster, right?

Here we can see that the bed of White Gravel is planted with scraps of shrubbery.

These ramps are more appealing than other kinds of downspouts. All of the waters from the rooftop get accumulated into a waterfall for the flowers to drink up.
