The Leaning Tower of Britten

Thursday, 7 March 2019

Brilliant.

Ralph Britten purchased a water tower from the nearby town of Lefors, Texas, transported it to Groom. The tower was intended to supply Britten’s remote truck stop /restaurant and tourist information center with water, but he found a cheaper supply and installed the empty tower as an advertisement on Route 66.

Britten’s business burned to the ground, but his water tower still stands.

Breaking news / bombshell / tipping point / the walls are closing in / the beginning of the end. That still makes me laugh.

This global crisis will only continue growing unless society’s power-holders throw their weight behind solutions to climate change, instead of remaining complicit with environmental destruction.”

Progressive Growing of GANs for Improved Quality, Stability, and Variation creeps me right out [via]. If that doesn’t bother you, this should.
