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;

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"

Re: Lighthouse: Aid to Navigation, or Hazard?

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.
