tRump revisionist historian says: The first thing the pilgrims did after landing at Plymouth was to set about building an airport, for they knew that, one day, airplanes would be invented and they would need to be ready.

1. In other news, people who believed that Jesus rose from the dead and went to heaven

were shocked when evidence surfaced of a hidden heliport complete with flight plans and a passenger list on which the name of Jesus could still be read, though faint.

2. That passenger list must be kept in a vault in the Vatican

alongside the shroud of Turin.

3. And then there is the airport just outside of Yorktown where the French landed

to save us from the British... who only had sail boats...

5. 'Murica was SO techologically advanced in comparison!

By the same token, the Chinese had already invented rocket firing war planes hundreds of years earlier...supposedly.

8. Aha! See, being from Yorktown I know where Cornwallis was really trying to get to

The Gloucester Airport.

Right across the river basically. It has been historically preserved in its original dirt format. If Cornwallis hadn't had that violent storm come off the Bay where the French and English Navies were his Army was going to be scooped up and taken to New York.

The Gloucester Airport is right beside the Gloucester Country Club. Used to be $5 all you can play on Sunday. I was a regular.

4. If I remember correctly,

the Native Peoples brought runways to the first 4th of July parade and party, in a display of giving thanks for being found.

6. Well, native peoples were certainly "lost"

They only had hot air balloons! How sad!

15. But apparently they did have iPhones

in the colony of Massachusetts as early as 1638 according to the mural's artist. See Umberto Romano's 1937 creation "Mr. Pynchon and the Settling of Springfield" in the article. Fascinating stuff about early colonial politics and the ancestor of a renowned author (In the DNA?). There are several other bizarre features in this mural.

14. Excellent!

Reminds me of when the British tried to fly to Spain and Admiral Nelson said, "I see no air strips!" So they had to turn around.

12. So it was air traffic control who beat the British...

George Washington had his troops occupy the runways so the British couldn't land extra troops and air traffic control had the planes stacked circling over Boston harbour until the Brits had no choice but to drop all their excess tea into the ocean...

13. Stupid British were relying on the Boeing 737 MAX for troop transport

That's what really lost them the war!

It's invisible! They never would have seen them coming!
