[...Snip!]

One other thing everyone liked to to at the Academy of Sciences was to toss coins in the crocodile pool at the entry to the building (sort of a wishing well) and see if you could bounce the coins off of their heads.  They don't let you do that anymore. More lost income for the Academy. ;) I always wondered about the poor guy that had to wade into the pool to retrieve the coins. I wonder if he is still around? ???

Who? Stumpy? Yeah, he's fine. They've got him over by the gate now tearing tickets. Sure, it takes him awhile, but you gotta admire his dedication!
So badass my Enfield's actually illegal  in India.

(Legal enough to pass muster if they don't look too closely in Woodbridge, Virginia, where the buses don't run at night, holidays or weekends and I'm a contender for 'Village Idiot')
