BarnFinds: Camper Plane - 1951 Grumman Albatross.

Oh, I’ll take it. If I had the cash. Never a dull moment with an Albatross. Tangential: You know the story behind this, don’t you? If not.

Archaeology News Network: Seven shipwrecks located off the shores of the Greek island of Delos.

Thought Merchants: Kauai and the Nā Pali coast by helicopter.

One of my favorite things I’ve ever done. If you visit Kauai, you HAVE to do it. And spend the extra cash on the longer flight - worth every penny.

Prospect.org: Who’s to Blame for Brexit? The Elites.

If Europe responds to Brexit by consolidating more control, they’ll have learned nothing from the yearning for people to free themselves from the yoke of unaccountable external rule, and the UK won’t be the first to leave.” Great find from Kevin [GitM] on FB.

Discover: Antibiotic-Resistant Genes Hitch a Ride in Just Two Days.

So many of my acquaintances go overseas, bringing back hitchhikers (GI distress). Perhaps this is why.

Brexit. They actually did it.

Between Trump and this event, it feels like hordes of ignorance are taking over the world. Western Civilization is practically poised to fall, thanks to narrowminded pursuit of profit at any cost ...

Guardian.UK: Alligator drags two-year-old boy into lagoon at Disney World resort in Florida.

You know, I spent a lot of time supporting sales meetings down in Disneyworld and environs. Every lake, every water feature seemed to have that long silhouette of an alligator or three in it. I wondered why they were allowed to remain, even close to well-trafficked areas. Understand, this was fifteen-twenty years ago now.

Guardian.UK: UK fracking firm plans to dump wastewater in the sea.

Under EA regulations, the water must be treated on site or elsewhere at a designated treatment facility, before a permit is issued to discharge it. Ineos and the industry trade body said any fracking wastewater would be treated before being disposed of.” But what does ‘treating’ render? What’s left in the wastewater?

Ghost in the Machine: Catching Up - Books.

Busy guy, Kevin. On my reading list(s). For The Past and Future City, did you look at the [what I call] Disneyfication of Santa Fe after 1912? They stripped the Victorian clapboards, the brick buildings, and stuccoed them over to look like Spanish Revival/Pueblo style. The past was forsaken for an older, faux past. Umberto Eco, Travels in Hyperreality, cubed.
