On the way back from the BNL concert (where we saw a very professional performance, considering), we stopped at Marengo Cave in Indiana. Because the Voice in my head told me to. (Snort. I kill me.) Actually, we stopped because the roadside signs told us to.
And it was there I found the greatest testament to editing in North America.
In honor of the sign, I'll keep this brief.
First of all, the cave entrance and gift shop featured a time-line that began with "Earth Created." This was to offset the suggestion that the earth has been around for the millions of years it took for the cave to form. This didn't surprise me, given that it appears that Indiana has put "In God We Trust" on the state license plates, just in case the atheists get it off the money.
Having seen two caves now, I can extrapolate and make assumptions about all caves. All caves have a puddle that is only six inches deep, and it is called "Mirror Lake."
Finally, Crocs are the worst spelunking shoes ever.
