I don't know. Could be Xylonium or ThreeSigmium or perhaps nothing.

The Clinton rock, or as I posted, slick Willie's willie, is plainly seen if you are looking anatomically. For another version, softer, is this tree seen just off the AT (rather than the PCT)

For extra credit, we hikers gave this tree a fake latin name. Anyone wanna guess?

Oh dear, this thread does veer off at a tangent sometimes!

By now, everyone knows the place. But who are those guys?

In 1937, there was a bill in Congress to add Susan B. Anthony. There is something of a movement to add Ronald Reagan (presumably for his leadership of SAG). And there is an unofficial fifth face up there already.

tdtz got it with the four compass directions plus up and down. Known to the Lakota and others as the Six Grandfathers, this was the most sacred place in the sacred Black Hills, dwelling place of the six deities that figured so prominently in the visions of Black Elk, representing the four directions, the sky and the earth, before Doane Robinson and Gutzon Borglum took over.

OK, he nailed it and I failed to notice. I do not want to use the pictures of mineral and vegetable phalli as an excuse, though. I'll just say I was making some post-Borglum contributions.

This is an experiment. When it is time for the reveal, y'all get a link to a magic decoder and a password. This way we don't need a banker. Besides, crypto is fun.

What In The World Happened Here? XLVI (46):

The particle that got away

At the time of writing this, though, Apple has not submitted a patent on the Higgs Boson.

Random Silliness II (2):

Note: Random silliness I (1) somehow ended up on the wrong thread, where it was maligned, exposed, and made the butt of jokes.

What would happen if you tried to hit a baseball pitched at 90% of the speed of light?
