Preserving a piece of US Maritime History - invaluable

The USS Olympia is a cruiser that fought in the Spanish American War in 1898 and has been preserved in Philadelphia. She's a one of a kind ship, a national historic monument, and in danger. She needs approximately $10-15 million in repairs to keep her a viable museum for years to come. If you have the resources, or connections to those resources, please consider helping. (full disclosure - there is no financial benefit to me to ask the question - we need to save this ship for posterity). Please contact me at 612-599-1935 or if you have additional questions.

Walk The Prank - The Pentagon can be soooo stuffy! Hilarious!

I think the world's best...most sophisticated...gags are pulled off by Naval Academy guys.

Just before my time...a midshipman (I forget his name so call him Jones) pulled this praink as a labor of love...

He was a Wires major (Electrical Engineering). He used the Wires lab to construct large speakers, each box about waist high.

One night, he lined his speakers along one side of Bancroft Hall...the worlld's largest dormatory.

As the sun first peaked over the Severn River, he took a microphone and announced over his row of monster speakers...

"Gentlemen, Midshipman Jones, in cooperation with God, presents the sun."
