We need more Michiganders like Wally Wallington

I am leaving Michigan today (much to everyone's relief) and as always I'm struck by the sheer awesomeness of the people here. From Mark Perry, I found the story of Wally Wallington who manipulates and moves 30' x 30' pole barns and 20,000 pound concrete columns with wood, rope, stones, sand, and water. Why? Like the old punchline says, because he can!

Wally thinks he's uncovered how the ancients constructed Stonehenge and plans to singlehandedly erect a concrete replica in his back yard. Check out Wally's fantastic story via YouTube video here.

The north WILL rise again, people.
