            Blew me right outta the water. I’m going to have to warn @deadpool that he has to watch out for you!!

              19. Well we had the sources, I guess. Here's Lord Thomas saying Akron was the

              first electric city – Who would have know that? My other two guesses would have been Philly & Boston(or maybe Wilmington, Delaware)

              The Electric City – good  one

          10. We thought.

          That Akron was the first electric city.

            20. It's a wonder to learn that Akron was the first electric city – never ever would

            have known that. Rubber tires – sure; electricity citywide, never.

            Congrats

              22. To be honest.

              I don’t know if Akron was the first electric city. I went Detroit first for cars, then asked MLT what the first electric city she said Akron.

              Just guessing with the first thing popped in our heads.

                23. You went with your feeling and that's usually a good thing to do. Sometimes

                a person doesn’t have a memory in his/her consciousness but it comes out unmediated.

                I would never have thought Akron was the first electric city – good one on MLT. I know NYC had many blocks of direct current electricity before alternating current won the day.  Anyway, there are some good questions asked here and I like it when I don’t know because I get to learn something. (I wonder how I can work “the first electric city” into a conversation?)

                  24. You know on Trivia.

                  It’s OK to win, but to us it’s really fun to play. Plus we get to learn, hang out with you guys, a win-win.

                    25. That's the way I see it also. I give myself 3 guesses and then if I'm wrong I

                    hope to catch the correct answer before it disappears from view.

                      26. If I have no idea.

                      I just make stuff up that has no relation to the question. I learned that from @sofarfromheaven

                        28. Good to know I have something to teach.

                        I love giving @deadpool a real rash. He’s absolutely cool.

                        Say hi to MLT for me.

          16. Wow I always wanted to go on a sailboat.

           MLT is gonna love the Safari. I do need tires, no tread left on mine since back when I was on the run.

          Thank You!

            21. Oh yeah, that big clipper (?) would be great. I did get to go on one

            at the Inner Harbor in Baltimore 30 years ago and we sailed down the coast a bit. It was awesome. Glad you can use the tires, Mr. On the Run!!!! :lol:

      14. Look at the wheels.

        15. You trying to say

        that no place other than Akron had fucking rubber tires in 1899??

        Seriously??

          18. No. But the only city with vulcanized rubber tires on electric police cars!

          Besides……. I took a tour of the Goodyear plant as a “yute” and noes this shtuff!
