How can a light house make any maneuver at all? They are buildings on land.


EDIT: Or is this source a fake news website?

Quoting Mr VanZant;

"Whiskey bottles, and brand new cars
Oak tree you're in my way...
There's too much coke and too much smoke
Look what's going on inside you
Ooooh that smell"

My mistake, just sounded fake for some reason. I would also like to see pics.

If "true", then it would just be a tongue-in-cheek report on how it happened.. interestingly, that's the only image I can find of the 'incident', and of course nowadays 'photos' are proof of nothing.
