OK, the animal was easy.

I just flew Southwest across the USA and the planes were all WiFi hubs. Someone must have attached a cheap-assed antenna onto the fuselage(s).

I am kidding about everything except the "cheap-assed" part. That looks like a home job, if not an antenna. Maybe the aerodynamics of that particular plane were too good?

(This is not an obscure answer. I am currently clueless.)

So that $0.25 thing is on the rear (upward slope on fuselage) and facing into the airflow. Not made to last long?

Right, the $200,000 part is mounted on the barrel, not the bung.

Ah, of course. And I was just about to bail out on this one. It was a Dandy. Actually a $194,300 part. 5,800 turned up in the bank.

Well, lets see, this has been a busy little place. Wagga could be thinking about some brief unpleasantness about 30 years back, involving an inconvenient occupation, disputed claims, a particularly nasty flying fish: who knew Sheffield steel could burn?

Hot wildlife in Google produces a lot of links to a failed plant in Ukraine, which this picture does not show. I was going to give up and then I recognized Bullwinkle Ridge in the background.

cars driving on the right side of the road.

shadows suggest top of picture is north (if our hemisphere)

weird building some sort of museum? modified lighthouse?

rocky coast on right must be the ocean, beach side is protected side I assume.

no palm trees seen. Is this New England somewhere?

Can't the shadows also mean the top could be south, even if within our hemisphere?
