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.
Just in time for Easter, DudeIwantThat.com introduced us to Gluttony Pants. Betabrand, in collaboration with San Francisco chef Chris Cosentino, created the Gluttony Pants, with two khaki straight legs, a pocketed rear, and an induglence-themed waistband depicting the life cycle of a glutton from birth to final, death-dealing esophageal insertion. They're capped with 3 spaced button closures representing the 3 gradations of Culinary Swino: Piglet; Sow; and Boar.
