  • The Alamo now a UNESCO Heritage site

    Less than 30 such sites in the USA. Its expected to boost tourism and bolster an already-booming state economy.

    Plus it honors John Wayne and Billy Bob Thornton!

    Any man can hold his place when the bands play and women throw flowers; it is when the enemy presses close and metal shears through the ranks that one can acertain which are soldiers, and which are not.

                  I wouldn't go there for the last oxygen molecules on the planet.

                  Had to clean that up from its original version.

                        I bet you'd catch the next jet there if they had $5 hookers and $1 bottles of whiskey though...

                            Credo quia absurdum.


                            Quantum mechanics describes nature as absurd from the point of view of common sense. And yet it fully agrees with experiment. So I hope you can accept nature as She is - absurd! - Richard Feynman
