Does this count as news? Nobody seems to know exactly why this manhole cover in Denver is flopping all around like a plastic frisbee. The Wise think it’s caused by displaced air trying to escape.
Maybe your experience is different, but I always had the idea that manhole covers were, like, real heavy and you couldn’t just toss them around. I don’t make a habit of plucking manhole covers out of the street, but I’m sure it would be difficult.
In just the past two years or so I’ve heard a lot of kooky things about Denver. What happened to it? The manhole covers aren’t the only things in Denver that seem off-kilter nowadays.
P.S.–If you have to walk a mile out of your way, do it to avoid a film called “A Field in England,” an incoherent mass of babbling piffle. If you have to go down a manhole to avoid it, do that.
