In 1976, as part of America’s bicentennial celebrations, the residents of Lake City, Pennsylvania raised $6000 to build a UFO Landing Port. Explained Jim Meeder, the businessman who organized the effort, “We said to ourselves, ‘Let’s not look backward 200 years.

The landing port consisted of “a grass-covered mound five feet high and 100 feet in diameter, bordered by red and blue lights.” A representative from the Tucson, Arizona Aerial Phenomenon Research Organization checked it out and said approvingly that he was relieved it wasn’t “a schlock thing.”
Twelve years later a reporter from the Minneapolis Star-Tribune checked back and found that the landing port hadn’t been visited by a UFO yet, but the town was using it as a helicopter landing pad for lake rescues.

Instead of using refrigerated trucks to deliver medical supplies to people who live in the deserts of Africa, inventors have built solar-powered refrigerators that can be carried by camels, and so the medicines are delivered via refrigerated camel. Apparently it wasn’t that easy to build a camel-carried refrigerator. It had to be lightweight, but also sturdy enough to survive the motion of being on the camel as well as the extreme desert conditions.
