Dr. Joseph Edwin Crapo, 1922
Crapo was a chiropractor, vaudeville performer, and model. In 1915 he won one of the first Mr. America-type bodybuilding competitions. He lived most of his life in California, but was based in Vancouver for a period in the early 1920s.
The Sun reported that he amazed a crowd of hundreds at this demonstration with remarkable feats of strength.

Operation “Libya White Fax” - Boing Boing
“After observing the growing unrest and correspondingly violent crackdown in Libya, a group of hackers conceived and launched Operation Libya White Fax: while the internet and data connections are being throttled, cut off and censored, phone lines are still open, and fax machines are still working. So, with a list of numbers that have fax machines on the other end, and one fax document packed with timely info, time-sensitive information on how to route around censorship can get to people inside Libya.
The information document is online [PDF mirror] and so is the list of numbers to send it to. The info is coming from We Re-Build’s main Libya page and will be updated as needed. This document helps people in Libya learn how to connect to dial-up internet, and route around the government-ordered communication blocks.”
Crazy how old tech stands tall in the face of possible infrastructure collapse.
But think of all the hands you’ll have free to hold more wine!
