This is the kind of item that gets a professional surveyor excited.
The DNR's Matt Dontz found this original cedar survey post in a stream near Atlanta, in Montmorency County recently. The General Land Office of the U.S. government did the survey of Michigan's townships in 1850. The post was set to mark a section, or quarter corner and were driven into the ground each half-mile. It was preserved by the water, Forestry and Surveying experts agree the find is extremely rare, even with today's GPS technology.
ThinkGeek's creative team of writers informs us that after the Death Star blew, Darth Vader apparently never stopped moping at his apartment. In fact, all he does is cry, watch TV, and drink. Boy, can Vader knock back a few. He was starting to get better; some of the officers from the Death Star days would stop by to get him out of the house. You know, take him to a movie, and maybe out to a bar, just to get him to talk to someone -- anyone -- about what was going on. He was really turning it all around until one day he got a package from Luke. Inside he found a bottle opener shaped like the Death Star. It was a great bottle opener, an easy grip for bottle opening leverage and best of all it's magnetic so it'll stick to your fridge when not in use. Sorry, Tie fighter not included.
