It is truly a strange thing when a steam pipe bursts under an abandoned building in the dead of winter, but that’s exactly what happened under the Clinic Building at Greystone Park State Hospital in 2007, a month before the building was unceremoniously knocked down. The steam congregated near the ceiling of the abandoned asylum infirmary, condensing on the pipes and dripping down in regular patterns - and creating these ice stalagmites. An hour after taking this photograph, demolition workers came into the building and chased us through the tunnels; we had to hide in an attic in 0 degree weather for hours while cops searched for us. The next time I drove out there, there was no trace that a building had ever stood in this spot.
OHHHH MYYY GOODDDDDDDDD so my dad had his boss over for dinner tonight and during dinner his boss was like “oh my billy I didn’t know you had an older son!” and we were all like what is this guy talking about BUT THEN WE REALIZED HE WAS TALKING ABOUT THE STUMP PICTURES TAPED ON MY REFRIGERATOR
AND MY DAD JUST WENT ALONG WITH IT SAYING “OH YES THATS MY SON PATRICK HE LIVES IN CHICAGO NOW” AND MY MOM AND I LAUGHED SO HARD WE HAD TO LEAVE THE ROOM
why is it that were always told not to get tattoos at a young age because we “will regret it later on” when we are basically told to choose a career path by age 18? i’d rather be 40 years old with a tattoo that meant something to me when i was young than be 40 years old not wanting to get out of bed to go to a job that i hate because i was forced to decide on a career in my teens
