345' doesn't count as a mountain by any definition.

They're called "overpasses" around here.  And amusement park rides don't count, either way.

Julian Swayze will come up with a plan to make money off the glass dust blowing over the trailer homes.

I've stood on the highest point in central Florida.  On reaaaaly a clear day you can see from the Gulf to the Atlantic.

That looks like some tough shrubbery, you have there growing out of your mountain of glass, Florida.

/I am really surprised to see shrubbery growing out of the glass.  Doesn't seem right.

I've seen plenty of mountains on the beaches of Florida. Some even not made out of silicone.

When I was a kid, the only reason to go to Manatee county was for the Pink Floyd laser light shows at the Bishop Planetarium.

Wish I had smoked pot back then, do planetariums even still exist?

[...] glass dust, which they believe blows over from the Strategic Materials glass recycling plant next door, is making them sick.

Shouldn't a recycling plant be, um, recycling the glass into new products instead of just dumping it in huge piles? Seems that even filling a sinkhole or dumping it on a hurricane-eroded beach would be better than their current plan.

The problem with recycling glass is that turning back into bottles is dumb, it takes just as much energy as it would to melt sand into new glass. About the only use for recycled glass is as a filler in other substances where you don't actually remelt the glass down. For example, recycled glass countertops and whatnot. It's not like aluminum where traditional recycling actually makes sense.

It's called a mobile home because it was invented in Mobile, AL. Good luck trying to hitch it to your pickup truck and move, though.

You're just homeless and pissed off at the fact that it's a lot easier and more profitable to pick up soda cans on the side of the road than glass bottles.

Used to do that all the time, well, when it was something good anyway.
Yes, we were smoking pot...and stuff.....

Anyway, Bishop is still there and looks like it's going strong

Fano: What state has the lowest highest point?


Britton Hill, Florida has the lowest high point at 345 feet.  Colorado (at the Kansas border) claims the highest low point at 6800 feet.  The lowest low is Death Valley, CA at -282, and Mt. McKinley, Alaska has the highest high at 23,320 feet.

/there's going to be a test
//Yes, I know Mauna Kea, Hawaii, is 35,500 feet tall, but most of it's underwater

Delaware has a high point near the Elbright Azimuth at 447 feet, and a low point of mean sea level at the Atlantic Ocean.

It's called a mobile home because you hang a bunch of them together from a coat hanger over a baby's crib. They're kinetic sculptures, not originally meant to be lived in.

"Glass dust"... pardon me, but isn't that called "sand"?

My google skills suck too after some rum, else I would have found Moxy Fruvous "The Lowest Highest Point" where they claim Delaware (which has the lowest MEAN elevation)

If it was California, they'd have called it "art".

Even Rhode Island has mountains taller than what Florida has, and they barely cover a few acres. next to the sea.

Florida has mountains.  Mountains of stupid.
