You might be right about all that, player! No, man, that fair was incredible. I urge people reading this to read about the 1904 St. Louis World's Fair. Lots of planning - years of planning - tons of money put into it. Lots of firsts from that Fair.

Well phooey! I saw the link and supposed it was about "shine." Instead it was about a Manhattan and a marathon.

here are a few to wet your whistle:

It is legal to own a still in Missouri. It is legal to produce up to 200 gallons of shine a year per household for personal use. It is not legal to sell or transport moonshine. If caught, the fine is, $10,000 for the first offense, $25,000 for the 2nd offense, and $50,000 for the 3rd offense.
