I thought it was maybe the "Big Stump", but when I compared, it is obviously not.

Big Stump, 2005

"Stump speech" - beats the dickens out of me. SEKI is not a city, otherwise...

Here is a really good clue.



Nothing to do with this puzzle, but the IBM PC turned 30 today.

In my opinion, posting that latest picture was a noble gesture.

Are you sure that you spelled "Noble" correctly? Generally we talk about Nobel prizes in this neck of the woods.

This time around, I was referring to General Noble, not Alfred Nobel.

This thread is pretty quiet lately. Regarding XLVI, there were once super plans for that building.

Is that a fire ant mound on the left hand side, near the gutter?

It is conceivable that this thread could be too obscure at times and wagga could have conceivably been joking about actually spotting a fire ant mound, but the building is in a place I would readily associate with them.

The building was built for people who wanted to bash things together at high speeds. Really, really, really high speeds. People do that kind of thing, but not on the grandiose scale that was planned for this place.

Ok, got it. And I take it this would be the fire ant's jaws:

Yes. They were digging a truly Texas-sized tunnel. And it would have provided a lot of fun for folks of a certain type.

Here is one view.
