If you go back 80 years, the atmosphere was terrible from all the soot due to the burning of coal for just about everything. The Audubon Society magazine even had some photos showing how birds’ plumage is much cleaner today than it used to be.
I’d definitely want Philippe Petit fighting for me.
There was also the Bertrand, sunk April 1, 1865, 30 miles North of Omaha. It was found in 1968 and excavated in 1969, from its landlocked location under 30 feet of mud in the DeSoto National Wildlife Refuge.

I have a 14 1/2 month old special needs puppy who loves carrots, and last year found joy in eating sugar snap pea pods right off the vines in my garden. I don’t know if he’ll be around next year, but he’s been a real joy to have around.
Sometimes you jinx things by bragging about them prematurely (counting your chickens before they hatch). One example: Mack Brown, University of Texas football coach was talking to reporters during preseason training about how well his team had played the year before. This would allow them to have a good time, he said, They didn’t have a good time. He jinxed it.

I don’t know the answer to your question, but if you cross an Elephant with a Rhinoceros what do you get? Elephino! (Ok, it’s lame and not really on point, but set-ups for that punch line are few and far between).
