Alright folks…I need your help.” give ME your Tears Gypsy….” WHoops. Wrong Gypsy. I am in search of a rare Item Indeed. I need to find the GM Century Infant Love Car Seat. It is a critical component in building the Robot known as Gypsy from Mystery Science Theater 3000. The seats are from the early 1980’s have become nearly impossible to find due to the government rounding up and destroying many of the remaining seats (child safety regulations and all).
If you have one hidden away in a parents attic or know someone who does and are willing to part with it, please send an email to JON@Skullbunnie.com with your price!
Also if you happen to have the measurements or a schematic for the seat, I would also be very much interested in that so I might fabricate a facsimile in the case I never find one. thanks
A surprising find under what used to be America’s most notorious prison: Texas A&M researchers using ground-penetrating radar have discovered the remains of an old military fortress long believed to have been completely destroyed, reports the BBC.
The San Francisco Bay island was once the home of Fort Alcatraz, built upon the discovery of gold in the area and transformed into a line of defense during the Civil War.
The fort never fired a shot during the war, though it did house Confederate sympathizers jailed for denouncing the federal government. The radar has revealed old fortifications along with buried magazine buildings and tunnels dating from long before the main prison building was erected in 1915.
“From 1850 to 1907 was the era of Fortress Alcatraz,” explains Texas A&M professor of geology and geophysics Mark Everett. Much of the remaining fortress is inaccessible under prison buildings, but archeologists hope to start excavations soon on what they believe is an important find under the prison’s parade ground.
