The Sunsphere!


The monument to clean energy from the 1982 World's Fair in Knoxville. It looks like a microphone, or Reunion Tower in Dallas, and Bart Simpson found wigs at the top. I think I was able to ride to the top in 1994. I hear it reopened again a year or two ago, so you can get views of the city from here.

The locals, from what I hear, roll their eyes at the thought of the place. Some think it's ugly, while others think the city could have done something better for the World's Fair. Sometimes, drunk UT students try to fire a gun at it in an attempt to bust out a window. Then all the wigs might fall out.
