Saw this on the road a few days ago, heading south on I-15 between Brigham City and Ogden. Theory: the government is getting ready for the Yellowstone supervolcano to go off and to do so with such force that the Great Salt Lake will be tossed around, a giant  wave of brine sent sloshing southwards. Second theory: anything else.

    b) In order to get funding, thus to appease Congress, NOAA had to order the buoys manufactured in a very stupid and inconvenient place. Probably different parts in several, widely separated, stupid and inconvenient places.

        They’re built by SAIC in San Diego, so probably not the case here. The buoy looks used, so it’s probably been used in a display or something.

    That’s the drain stopper for the Great Salt Lake!

    And some idiot pulled it!
