Mount Trashmore

Yesterday I made a visit to Mount Trashmore, a 165 acre park in Virginia Beach with a 80’x600′ “mountain” built on top of a landfill. All I’ve gotta say is, that’s really cool. Well, except for the time when the trash started to creep up through the soil. But otherwise, that’s really cool.

Peep the excellent documentary "Stoked", about former Vision skater and murderer Mark Gator Rogawski, for footage of a riot at Mount Trashmore in 1988.

When I was younger I thought it was "Mount Thrashmore" because it was used by so many skaters. I guess either makes sense, really.



What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
