Here are a Few Things To Do in Lansing Without Wifi
If we had to do it, humans can live more than a month without food and several days without water, but according to a new survey, we can only handle maybe a few hours without WiFi. What the heck!
The poll asked people what essentials they absolutely needed. The responses were pretty common: medicine, electricity, gas and heating. Normal right? Nearly half the respondents said that electronics and wifi were considered essential. Can't live without it.
This got us thinking. There have to still be some cool things in the world or around here to do that do not require a web connection. We compiled a few for you...no need to thanks us.
MSU Moist Towelette Museum
Did you know there is actually a Moist Towelette Museum? You can find it on Michigan State University's campus in the Abrams Planetarium building. It has more than 1000 moist towelettes. I thought they were only for babies and wings. What do I know?
The World's Largest Lugnut
We all have lug nuts on our tires. The one that is perched above the smoke stack downtown isn't just to symbolize our fine minor league baseball team, it is also the largest one in the world. Next time you are downtown at a game or grabbing a drink, give it a second look.
Rotary Steam Clock
You've probably seen this bad boy in the tower for quite awhile. A long time ago, before electricity, steam was the go to power source. The tower is still powered by it and the mechanism that runs it is both cool and visible.
Plank Road Tollgate House
Tollgate houses are rare. In fact, the last one in Michigan is right here. Oddly constructed and many of them are believe to be haunted. This was built during the 19th century so it wouldn't be hard to imagine a few lurking spirits.
Sure, you can look at these online. Seeing them in person is much better, though. When you hear the phrase "there's nothing to do", now you have a couple of things to look at that don't require WiFi and that you might not have known were right here in our backyard.
