(Just a Few of) The Federal Benefits of Marriage Equality
What we didn’t have yesterday.
In 1935 a group of Nazis came to Santa Monica, California and set up a small village in the mountains. To prepare against a US invasion, they created this 500-step staircase. The stairs are purposely distorted so that each step is a different height, angle, length and width. Some steps are even angled upwards as you descend, making it impossible for soldiers to raid the area quickly. After Pearl Harbor was attacked in 1945, the US received radio signals traveling from Santa Monica to Germany. Despite the distorted staircase, the US was able to raid the camp and arrest the 50 Nazi residents who had lived there for 10 years, plotting to eventually take America’s west coast once Hitler gained enough power. Something not taught in most history books.
What I love most about the distorted staircase is that you can’t tell which picture was taken looking up the stairs, and which picture was taken looking down them.
The ultimate defense for a Nazi base of operations was a wonky staircase
