|Heh. It's all good, but I particularly enjoyed the OCH zen fountain. "Do not want!"|

|Yeah, the zen fountain is painful but hilarious. Well done all around!|

|One of your funniest ever RR.|

|Don't underestimate the Beer Art Lobbyists in Tacoma. Even the Washington State History Museum is recycling beer marketing materials for its " Icons" exhibit.
Nothing against beer; ancient Egyptian slaves built the "Green" pyramids by fortifying themselves with onion sandwiches and beer.
Yes friends, let's pose in the lotus position and face east toward the not-so-fertile Foss Delta and meditate (empty our mind) along with the Tacoma City Council and WSHM:
Visualize Tacoma as a wonderous community garden tilled by beer soaked neo-hoe daddies.

|even so, going GREEN is all about turning AIDS into LemonAIDS!|

|I like the city council dunk tank.|
What if the water tower were put on top of a 1,000 foot tower and then light it up like Vegas at night? It could flash "You'll Like Tacoma" over and over again in 100-foot-tall letters.
You definitely could see that from both Olympia and Seattle. I don't know if the governor has a soul to guilt, but the giant glowing reminder might, just might be enough to guilt the legislature into not cutting funds for the WSHM.

|I think the water tower would be cool if it were placed on top of the one story red building at 7th and St Helens downtown... across from the Amocat.
How big is the tank?
by L.S.Erhardt on 1/25/2011 @ 2:48pm
|Looks to me to be probably in the 300,000 gallon range.|
by The Jinxmedic on 1/25/2011 @ 3:24pm
|That WOULD make a good header tank for the Old City Hall Zen Fountain, then!|

|We should definitely stick the water tower on something...would look good on one of the buildings along 6th Ave too.|

|Save the Water Tower!|

|Turn it into a light rail link stop shelter for UW Tacoma|
by NineInchNachos on 1/25/2011 @ 5:34pm
|sell it to the Kalakala.org folks. could probably replace the missing flying bridge and make use of the pill shapes!|

|Little known secret:
In the 1960's that water tower was covertly used by NASA as a flight simulator for the Apollo Lunar Module.
The first test pilot: Ivan the B & I gorilla.

|Great Tacomic. Best one in a while. Looks like it took a lot of work.|
by NineInchNachos on 1/26/2011 @ 7:50am
|Long live Ivan!|

|Update! the whole Heidelberg Brewery should be coming down in two weeks. If you want pics for nostalgia, now is the time to take them!|
