Holy shit, I’ve been saying that randomly over the las month and now I know where that was from. I just thought it was a random poem from English class, but it was from holes. I haven’t seen the movie in like ten years.
I’ve found that if my GP is an arrogant dick they just plain don’t listen to what I say, so I would disagree completely. I’ve been diagnosed with two diseases by specialty docs (that I found on my own) because my other arrogant docs

American factories produced extraordinary quantities of equipment during WWII, so much that it dampened industries around the world for more than a decade. ‘Army Navy’ stores in America were still selling WWII surplus well into the ’70s, and that was primarily production over-run from
I was a McManager in the 90’s in Canada where most of my training took place in Vancouver, BC. The mucky mucks at HQ told us stories about that floating McD’s. If memory serves, the reason it never became operational again after Expo 86
Oh, a gossan… A gossan is the leached cap above a vein or sulfide orebody, and it is roughly the same effect as this. Acidic rain mixes with the sulfides in the ground and create a stronger acid, that then leaches away all of
For those that [didn’t get it](https://freeko.files.wordpress.com/2009/06/freeko_fallout_sleep.jpg). It’s from Fallout 3, a game where you often have to sleep in abandoned places like this.
I remember that one as “White Water,” and it was only the best while it was still referred to as “White Water.” By the time it was bought-out and renamed to Wet N Wild, the Arlington location (now Hurricane Harbor) next to Six Flags
My dad spent time there in the 70’s, he recently sent me [this book](https://www.google.com/shopping/product/11750339303983079249?q=missouri+state+penitentiary+book&espv=2&biw=1600&bih=795&dpr=1&bav=on.2,or.r_cp.&ion=1&tch=1&ech=1&psi=AR7KVdGPB8zvoATQqIKQBg.1439309365888.3&prds=paur:ClkAsKraX7pPPT4kd_35sh2XdBM4ART5J70NPnoY4Ju7CKnJLwEY5CwzNN2m-nkdEuYBf10swlDLCjNyHxh0QIxeGl2KiaTXk2WM-bXZjhjcfyJOD_G8JVCsARIZAFPVH73P_NcXRwE64Zpv7HAUD0RyhOk_JA&ved=0CAQQpitqFQoTCJWwyJ61occCFQd-iAod0T8F1Q&ei=Ox7KVdWmKYf8oQTR_5SoDQ) about how crazy the place was.
Some background info: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wickfield_Round_Barn http://villagesofvanburen.com/sites-of-interest.html?item=7 Perhaps no barn in Iowa has as colorful a history as Cantril’s famed round barn. At one time or another it was a sales pavilion, a packing plant, dormitory and, believe it or not, was raided as a “speakeasy”
The Canfranc International Railway Station and its adjoined hotel were the of epitome of transit glamour when it was first built in 1928. But a series of events—including being co-opted by the Nazis during WWII—led to its eventual demise and abandonment. Going from ritzy
Yeah, I guess so – but many people who do urban exploration probably have better ones. For about twenty years, I’ve lived in squats or in vehicles on squatted land. Generally, the more abandoned a place is, the longer you can stay there before
this castle has definitely had its share of troubled history. It has not been established who designed the complex, that, most probably, was planned by Italian architect Andrea del Aqua, who also designed the fortress in nearby Brody for bellicose Koniecpolski. Hetman Koniecpolski wrote
Yeah, I kind of understood that before watching this video, but watching the video really drove the point home. I could tell that the rides and attractions had really not been updated in a very long time. As much as I enjoy looking at
As magnificent as it is, Angkor Wat was my 3rd favourite temple in that area, my favourites were Ta Prohm and Bayon. While Angkor can appear more incredible then any other in photo and diagram, actually walking around the other temples made them seem

Note sure how the google translation is though, but I think it tells the story.
this is really great, simply because I can imagine, at one point how this store was busy, bustling, and just filled to the seams with what life was like in its heyday. And it probably meant something to a good number of people. And
Almost certainly somewhere in rural England. Just a bit of history, in the 60s a certain Dr Beeching, the chairman of the Nationalised British Railways at the time, published a [series of reports](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beeching_report) that lead to the closing of a few thousand miles of
I come from a line of drivers. My mom drove me to my Dads (Detroit area to North Carolina) couple times a year. She drove there and back, with a friend, in one shot. 24 hours. My grandpa will drive anywhere if given smallest
Sure, the shape is helical, but the official term for these constructions is “spiral staircase” whereas the official term “helical staircase” refers to something else.

Although this sub doesn’t explicitly state it in the rules, there’s usually an understood rule about handing out the exact location to the public. Before I get criticized for being elitist, I do share locations with people that I trust aren’t going to a
No, I don’t think so. It doesn’t have to be photoshopped (although it might be) but at a minimum a very long exposure was used, collecting the light put out from the boat and sky and water over a period of hours. Obviously your
I read that. The story of the steamer Pijma is likely a widespread myth (or may be not, the archives of NKVD/KGB/FSB is still sealed and numerous of their crimes still well hidden). However there was another creepy story, later proven. At the forced
