Those were not the crimes he was hung for, though...

A guy nicknamed Dr. HHH had a hotel near the Fair.

Puzzle #100 for wagga


Wait, what? In 1955 the area code didn't matter? No matter where you were you got CONAD? Something besides the typesetting is wrong here.

From the Associated Press on Christmas.

Is the area code really an issue? It seems to me that all that was needed was for a few people from the relevant area code to call the number.

Ah, right you are! It was just one store, not a national ad. Which raises another interesting question about the coincidence: was it a coincidence? Or did some Colorado Springs local just happen to know a certain telephone number. I mean, what are the odds? This was after all, before the days when the NSA would pick you up just for having a camera or a notebook out at certain gas station off the BW Parkway. Can you imagine the Christmas visitors that Sears store would get if this happened last week?

Ho-ho-ho!

Very mildly radioactive material, not necessarily waste.

Update: What In The World Happened Here? LVIII (58): Link.



Yesterday one of my best friends (who I see around once a year) dropped by for a visit. Knowing that he was originally from Oak Ridge, I asked him if his father was involved with any of the reactors. Yup, he said, the Molten Salt experiment. But because most stuff was secret, he wasn't told any details. Dave did tell me that his dad was involved with the Tower Shielding Reactor, which investigated the feasibility of nuclear-powered aircraft. And that Alvin Weinberg was a family friend.

Link to the Tower Shielding Reactor here, and here for the true geeks.

What In The World Happened Here? CLIX (159):

Two burned down gum trees by the side of the road - yet a notable, current, cultural loss.

Sickness that is evidently part of an epidemic.

Very mildly radioactive material, not necessarily waste.

A friend posted a link to an article that appeared in The Telegraph (UK) on Sunday. it was about an approach to nuclear power. I was merrily reading along when I saw "The Americans have buried tonnes of it, a hazardous by-product of rare earth metal mining." I googled "burial" and the name of the stuff the article was talking about and the above picture came up. What a lucky break.

Today is my day -- one of my Facebook friends just posted a BBC article about this incident.
