    Stonehenge! Where the demons dwell
    Where the banshees live and they do live well
    Stonehenge! Where a man's a man
    And the children dance to the Pipes of Pan
    Hey!
    Stonehenge! 'Tis a magic place
    Where the moon doth rise with a dragon's face
    Stonehenge! Where the virgins lie
    And the prayers of devils fill the midnight sky


    Actually, going there in person was kind of underwhelming. The people in charge of it won't actually let you walk very close for fear that small children would rub boogers on the henges or something. It's just one of those tourist attractions where you got most of the awesomeness of the thing from looking at a picture of it in a book, as opposed to the Grand Canyon or something.

    David Wong, regarding Chicago
    Six centuries ago, the pre-Colombian natives who settled here named this region with a word which in their language means "the Mouth of Shadow". Later, the Iroquois who showed up and inexplicably slaughtered every man, woman and child renamed it "Seriously, Fuck that Place". When French explorer Jacques Marquette passed through the area he marked his map with a drawing of a brownish blob emerging from between the Devil's buttocks.

    That was largely my experience as well. We were in a cramped sleeper cabin on a riverboat for 2-3 days, and I was probably 13-14 at the time, so the beauty of the place was largely lost on me.

    I did go on the Glacier Express in college though, which was much more satisfying:
