I was thinking about doing this: http://gacivilwar.org/Events/Overview/2408298

For those that don't know:

One of the most famous stories of the Civil War took place on April 12, 1862. Now, one hundred and fifty years later you can still experience The Great Locomotive Chase in Georgia. Follow the route of the world famous steam engines "The General" and "The Texas" as they traveled from metro Atlanta to the Northwest corner of the state. Along the way, discover a wealth of battlefields, cemeteries, museums, small towns and stories

Confederate Submarine breaks down on I-20

Image

It's hard to surprise Atlanta drivers, who are used to seeing tires, ladders, auto parts and construction materials on and along metro interstates.

Motorists on I-20 in Fulton County, however, saw something Thursday morning they've likely never encountered: a submarine sitting by the side of the road.

Actually, it was a replica of a submarine, the Civil War-era H.L. Hunley, which was used by the Confederates to harass Union blockade ships -- sinking one of them -- in Charleston Harbor.

True to the original Hunley, which was rife with mechanical problems -- it sank a total of three times -- the replica's trailer broke down Thursday morning as it was being hauled to Shiloh, Tenn., where it is to be featured in the Battle of Shiloh Weekend.

Phil Lemieux, a volunteer for Friends of the Hunley, sat in a lawn chair with the sub while its owner, John Dangerfield, went to get parts to fix the trailer, which lost two wheels near the intersection of I-20 and I-285.

The replica is 98 percent accurate, 3 inches wider and 1 inch longer than the original, said Lemieux, who helped build it out of sheet metal and steel 10 years ago.

Based in Charleston, the vessel has been taken on the road for exhibits, educational purposes and events, he said.

The original Hunley was the first combat submarine to sink an enemy warship, the Housatonic, on Feb. 17, 1864. The Hunley sank after the attack and was not recovered until 1995. Nearly two dozen confederate soldiers, along with the sub's inventor, Horace Hunley, died in three different sinkings of the submarine.

haven't tried yet but I definitely will, that day I was going to the Japan Centre get some sushi and sake, and some weird rice cakes that all taste the same but look great.
Will do a report :)

then I shall try to honor that memory of a fellow Cast Out, any advice on the proper drunken behaviour in Texan territory ? (apart from not being a shitheel, of course)
And if you ever come back to the Old Continent you must let me know !

It's all now you see. Yesterday won't be over until tomorrow and tomorrow began ten thousand years ago. For every Southern boy fourteen years old, not once but whenever he wants it, there is the instant when it's still not yet two o'clock on that July afternoon in 1863, the brigades are in position behind the rail fence, the guns are laid and ready in the woods and the furled flags are already loosened to break out and Pickett himself with his long oiled ringlets and his hat in one hand probably and his sword in the other looking up the hill waiting for Longstreet to give the word and it's all in the balance, it hasn't happened yet, it hasn't even begun yet, it not only hasn't begun yet but there is still time for it not to begin against that position and those circumstances which made more men than Garnett and Kemper and Armistead and Wilcox look grave yet it's going to begin, we all know that, we have come too far with too much at stake and that moment doesn't need even a fourteen-year-old boy to think This time. Maybe this time with all this much to lose than all this much to gain: Pennsylvania, Maryland, the world, the golden dome of Washington itself to crown with desperate and unbelievable victory the desperate gamble, the cast made two years ago; or to anyone who ever sailed a skiff under a quilt sail, the moment in 1492 when somebody thought This is it: the absolute edge of no return, to turn back now and make home or sail irrevocably on and either find land or plunge over the world's roaring rim.
-William Faulkner
Leto II is gone for good, except for OM. The "pearl" was just that; a miniscule portion of what Leto was, and not a compressed version of the whole. The pearl that the worms have do not make them Leto, or in any way similar to him.
