GoK, Where You At?

Time is running out. The members of Gentrifiers of Kazan have like 32 more hours to contact me and let me know where they want their donation made after eking out a win last week.

If no one from the team gets in touch with me, the donation gets made to the Friends of a Wisconsin State Park. And it never goes to good state parks. We’re never giving money to Governor Dodge State Park. It’s not like they need it. They’re sitting on like $500 of Lands End cash. And Devil’s Lake only accepts Illinois currency, so if we hear nothing from GoK that cash is going into the coffers of Friends of Lake Wissota State Park

I grew up like eight minutes away from that park. And to this day I have never been there. This whole park’s claim to fame is that a dam was built, and a lake formed behind it. Then you toss in a faulty timeline from the movie Titanic and I guess that is enough to drop in a couple picnic tables, a nature center with a taxidermed Wood Duck and poster about bats and call it a state park. 

Sure, there is that fact that I’ve never seen Titanic, but I can tell you that at some point Jack says that he has spent time on Lake Wissota which didn’t yet exist because humans were not yet using dams. In 1912 CE, dams were strictly the pursuits of beavers. Humans really didn’t get on board with dams until like 1988. I can also tell you the best line in the film is when Rose says, “Draw me like one of your Bethulian girls. Specifically one running a knife through the throat of an Assyrian general with a handmaiden at my side.”
