Ok, just kidding. Everyone remembers when Eurasia attacked us and destroyed the pinnacle of Oceanic power.
That’s why Google shows the former site of the World Trade Center, and not the building from before 9-11.
At least for as long as we’re at war with Eurasia or they find it economically convenient to do otherwise.
Google lists among its principles “You can make money without doing evil”. What a crock of shit.

Cargo Cult of the Endymionites March 8, 2007Posted by Mark Folse in cargo cult, Carnival, Dancing Bear, Debrisville, Mardi Gras, Mid-City, New Orleans, Odds&Sods, Toulouse Street.

The tribal peoples of Mid-City appear to have erected this cargo cult wagon and covered it with beads in memory of the great god Endymion, which once visited these precincts. On close examination it also contains a snare drum, a favorite of the parading gods, and part of the of the cross-buck lights from the City Park miniature train. I wonder if they intended to signal to the great being that Mid-City is back, complete with amusement rides in the Park for his lordly pleasure. This odd vehicle is on the raised concrete platform in City Park on the west side of the site I recall from my childhood was a seal pool but which Gambit suggests was a swimming pool. (I think I’m right).
