Per Wikipedia:

On the Connecticut River in Holyoke, Massachusetts, a fish elevator lifts up to 500 fish at a time 52 ft (15.85 m) to clear the Holyoke Dam. In its first year of operation (1955), the Holyoke fish elevator carried 4,899 shad over the dam; by 2004, the typical annual number of fish lifted had risen to more than 500,000.

Also, the Canucks "new" jersey (the blue and green one with the "white-rectangle-containing-horizontal-hockey-stick-that-sort-of-makes-a-C" logo) is ugly and looks like something an American team would have worn in the 70s. Interestingly, Wikipedia also informs me that it IS the jersey that the Canucks wore in the 70's. Which doesn't make it any less ugly. What was wrong with the Haida whale "C" exactly?

You just have no appreciation of retro. Not like me and my big, bad, automobile. It's retro to gasoline being $0.399 per litre.
