Great stalacpipe organ
The organ was constructed in the 1950s in the Luray Caverns, Virginia, USA. It stretches across an area of three acres, and can be heard throughout the 64-acre caverns. Leland Sprinkle, who was responsible for its creation, used stalactites found in the caves to produce the musical notes for the instrument. Some reports say that he tried over 2,000 stalactites out before he obtained the correct sound. The stalactites are struck by rubber mallets controlled by a an organ-style keyboard. As you can hear in this performance of Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata, the sound it produces is incredibly clear, and it’s not surprising to learn that the area had been known for its musical characteristics long before the organ itself was built.

Normally my Daughter wouldn't attempt such shananigans while I was awake, but ... I almost took your meaning to be the tongue of the Andian highlanders. Regardless, I will wear a hat to protect my hair.

In 1990, two thieves dressed as Boston police officers entered the museum and stole 13 works of art.
The missing pieces include a Rembrandt, Manet, and a few by Degas, estimated at $500 million total. Empty frames currently hang in the room, in homage to the missing art and in hopes that they will one day be returned. This is one of the greater unsolved mysteries in American crime.
The UFO phenomena are manifestations of living beings that are here to deceive mankind. They appear in their UFO form because they wish to change our perception of reality. That they are alive rather than mechanical is not our only conclusion.
The thousands of contacts with the entities indicate that they are liars and put-on artists. ~ John Keel
They are inveterate liars and deceivers, and delight in bamboozling and misleading mankind with all manner of nonsense. ~ Gordon Creighton
“Alien abduction” experiences have been occurring for centuries; the only difference is that those who experienced them in the past usually recognized them as being something evil from a demonic force. It is only in modern times that large numbers of people in Christian countries have began to refer to the atypical “alien abduction” as something that is not demonic. " "I think that the experiences are so similar that one can conclude that they are in reality one and the same."
Similarities Between UFO Encounters And Demonic Encounters
Ships from ports such as Newcastle used to carry urine from the city's residents, to other ports for use in the leather tanning industry. It is thought that this is where the British and Irish expression "taking the piss" meaning to make fun of someone or something, derives from.
Even the more thoughtful approaches to prayer haven’t gotten through to me. I read Anne Lamott’s book about the “three essential prayers” she thinks every person should learn. The prayers are simply, “help,” “thanks,” and “wow.” I loved the book, and I love the idea of cultivating a deeper practice of interdependence, gratitude, and awe.
