There was an article today about how more than 1,000 items were recovered from the bottom of “The Beach” exhibit at the National Building Museum. Aside from a mass of lost cellphones and pairs of flip flops, here’s just a fraction of what else they found:

-Middle children from at least seven families

-A healthy first-string quarterback

-Gak. Real Gak.

-The amulet that animated rat Mrs. Brisby holds up in “The Secret of NIMH”

-An actual rat

-A Tinder date

-A family of four from Lincoln, Nebraska

-An eight-car Metrotrain

I’ll admit I’m a bit of a dork about maps, so a couple of years ago I bought a map of the WMATA Metrorail system to hang up in my apartment. It’s already a bit of an artifact with the upcoming Silver Line but years after making that purchase I STILL get emails from DCMetroStore.com. And with Halloween coming up, they seized on a children’s costume opportunity:

Given the high amounts of Metro anti-sentiment in this area, I thought some of the descriptions of the kids costumes could use some edits:

Unfortunately, the last image needed no editing. I didn’t want to alter the sweet, sweet irony:

Maybe they can start making squeezable baseball bats.
