  1. For some reasons these make me think of the pylons from the Land of the Lost TV show, though they work rather different.

    I applaud the dodecahedron shape. There just aren't enough dodecahedrons in things. ;)

  2. @Trey: I remember the Saturday morning show from way back and I recall that they had silvery pylons that you could get inside, but I don't remember what they did exactly. I'm going to go see if I can catch some episodes on Hulu or whatever. They had lizard-people with a funny name.

    The Boundary Beacons are navigational buoys off of the Mississippi River mixed-into Mile Markers off of the Highway System. I grew up around truckers, worked in shipping and ran an air freight dock briefly. In my way-ward youth, after I got back from getting majorly injured in the Army, and got into body building as part of my physical rehabilitation, I very seriously looked into working for the railroad and on a tug boat out on the Mississippi. That stuff has been very influential on my thinking and my approach to things.

    How things get moved around is fascinating to me, and it is super-essential to winning wars, maintaining empires, and sustaining civilizations.
