I was shown a 19th century photo of a balancing rock (a balancing rock is a 
flat rock that is balanced atop a rock spire. If you have ever seen Mexican 
Hat in Utah, you'll know what I mean) on Wolf hill. Nobody knows where it 
was, but it is gone now.

I think Frassanito wrote some code for NASA.


No colors anymore I want them to turn black
