      Correct!

      @landofenchantment, we have a winner. 

      The Sisaket province of Thailand. The Buddhist monks built the temple to promote recycling. The temple’s name is Wat Pa Maha Chedi Kaew, or the Temple of a Million Bottles.

      Congratulations NV Wino!

      You won a trip to see the amazing Murals of Cacaxtla, Mexico! Here is a link full of good info:

      https://www.atlasobscura.com/places/murals-of-cacaxtla

      Here are some images of the place and the area…you can only get there by bus and that looks pretty fun…you’ll stay at the Hotel de Angel nearby and enjoy some fabulous local cuisine (and some margaritas too!) Have a great trip!

        Wow! That looks like a great place to visit—with or without margaritas.

      Great guess because that does not look like Thailand to me. Wow.

      Animals know more than we do.

          So, here is what you do.

          Deadpool is picking on you. Get him in trouble.

          Report his ass and tell them the reason you’re reporting him is that he is being mean to you, again.

          Please include the again. That makes it better somehow.

          Nothing whatsoever is going to happen except a bunch of mods and I are going to laugh at both of you for a few minutes and then close the report.

          But it’s fun.

            Sounds like a fools errand, but OK, will do, except for one thing, (drumroll please) where is the report button?

            A little help please getting the SOB…

              There isn’t one here on 3.0.

              Of course, Deadpool is the one responsible for the site.

              So, send a PM to the Mods and Admins except Deadpool.

              Tell them he’s picking on you again.

              I pull this shit all the time. It’s fun and breaks the daily grind.

              That and claim he’s giving me the vapahs and woe is me………

    We replaced an entire shipping door in a building in Mechanical Engineering using Coors beer cans.

    Does that count? Epoxied the little bastards in and the school couldn’t get them out. THey didn’t realize it at the time, but we had applied for a small grant to test beer can solar collection via wall replacement and they had even bought the beer (highly illegal) had it delivered to our witless leaders home (highly illegal) and we had gladly drunk the entire lot in about two months. Then they had paid for the 55 gallons of epoxy we needed to construct the wall, fill the cans with water and seal them in place.

    They was a bit pissed. But didn’t write anything up cause they was the ones that actually broke the rules buying us little urchins all that beer and having it delivered to a students apartment. Prof got a small reprimand. He shoulda known we was not your average student body.
