“There aren’t any hookers at ATL. Not since 9-11. You have to have a boarding pass to get into the terminal. Thanks a lot, Bin Laden!”
The Desolation of Smaug trailer is out. It looks awesome. Glad to see Radagast will be back. Also looking forward to some badass archery from Legolas!
So I had a five hour layover at ATL heading to a conference in Florida. That meant with getting to the gate to board, I had about four hours to explore the busiest airport in the world. And here’s some of the awesome I found.
The History of Atlanta
Located underground between Terminals C and B is a museum that details the history of Atlanta, which was originally named Marthasville after Georgia Governor Wilson Lumpkin’s daughter Martha.
The museum, which stretches over two football fields in length, incorporates huge wall displays with plaque displays and video monitors with related videos for each era of Atlanta’s history, from the original Native American inhabitants and European settlement to the Civil War and Civil Rights Movement through the present day.
As you traverse underground from Terminal A all the way to E, there are several different hallways with almost 60 pictures of Antarctica.
Santiago Vanegas travelled with Quark Expeditions on a journey called “Crossing the Circle, Southern Expedition.” The photos are breathtaking and unlike anything else on Earth.
Sculptures of Zimbabwe
From Terminal T to Terminal A is an amazing display of Zimbabwe sculptures.
The exhibit has 20 sculptures over a distance of about 1000 feet along with pictures and artist descriptions and bios.
The Legacy of a Dream
At the top of the big escalators in Terminal E, there is a small display about Martin Luther King, Jr.
The front and back display details King’s life and his influence in Atlanta. The display also contains a pair of King’s glasses (which he didn’t need but wore because he thought they made him look “distinguished”), the robe he wore as pastor at Ebenezer Baptist Church, and the suit worn by King when he met with President Johnson in 1966.
I’ve been following this Chick-Fil-A shit storm since it started up. And I’ve had some pretty good laughs from some of the articles and responses. And I’m not really a David Sedaris fan, but, damn, gay people are some witty individuals and have some of the best comebacks. You only have to follow George Takei’s Facebook page to know that.
So to that end, LGBT community, thanks for all the entertainment. Evangelical Christians, thanks for giving the LGBT community a reason to use their awesome comebacks.
Now I’ve been boycotting Chick-Fil-A since before it was popular to boycott Chick-Fil-A. And I don’t boycott them because they are intolerant of gay marriage. I boycott Chick-Fil-A because they aren’t open on Sundays. And they assume that cows are poor spellers. But mostly the Closed on Sundays thing. And, let’s face it, Sundays are the only day I really truly crave Chick-Fil-A. Now I understand their beliefs that Sunday is the sabbath and junk. But how about hiring some Jews to cover the Sunday shift? Their sabbath is on Saturday. And they’re God’s chosen people, so they should be cool to work for the company, right?
But my personal Chick-Fil-A boycotting reasons aside, there have been a few people who have pointed out what following an Evangelical Christian lifestyle Read the rest of this entry
“It’s a four-day journey to the other side. Let us hope that our presence may go unnoticed.”
“Be on your guard. There are older and fouler things than Orcs in the deep places of the world.”
This is pretty fucking funny. And I think kids would be a whole lot better off if their books were a little more real. So enjoy Samuel L. Jackson reading Go The Fuck To Sleep.
