The Midnight Citizen 35 — “Accidental Curmudgeon”

1:09:04 — How do people get old?  Outside the usual ways, I think it’s a lot easier now for folks to get older, faster, what with all the Internet web sites and airplanes and telephones.  Also: a look at Bham’s Ruffner Mountain, America’s largest urban park and a monument to the city’s lush industrial history.

  1. Checked the scene around the mountain on Google Earth… Great stuff and history, too! I used to work in a skeeball arcade and lived near Lansdale, Pa, where they made the lanes… for awhile…

  2. Cool! Ruffner Mountain’s awesome — you should totally come on over and check it out with us. Also, you should definitely invest in my Human Skee Ball business, when it goes public!

  3. Human Skeeball, sounds like a new extreme sport, could make the X games or at least become a new obstacle for Wipe Out.
