Great stuff (although I wasn't a Frosty fan. Prof. Hinkle could've melted him for all I cared.) But what struck me years later were the Hollywood heavyweights they got to narrate those shows:

Rudolph:  Burl Ives

Frosty:  Jimmy Durante

Grinch:  Boris Karloff

Santa Claus is Comin' to Town:  Fred Astaire

Year Without a Santa Claus:  Shirley Booth

Little Drummer Boy:  Greer Garson

That's some pretty weighty talent for a bunch of Christmas cartoons.

If you ran the water treatment plant would you:

A) Alert my higher ups to start an investigation into why all this gold is showing up in my plant?

B) Work with the team to start extracting it and sharing the wealth with those involved?

C) Work late and send empoyees home early setting a good example and generating adoration amongst your employees, meanwhile you are $2 million richer?

FIrst and foremost, this is Way OT and it may very well go away as a result, but as I am just getting home from an offsite that took a lot out of me and resulted in nearly 90 minutes of brutal traffic on I-94, I am feeling generous - and by this, I mean admittedly apathetic. 

My neighbor had his sewer main redone last month, but as he didn't move away, I assume there was no gold - only shit.

In gold rush places like Montana and California used to sift the dirty water when they washed miner’s clothes and get gold dust off of it. Why not try the sewers.
