"What state was I born in"?

"The state of infancy."

That was great, thanks Jack. Went there as a kid and saw the Aston Martin from Goldfinger on display.

Spent a lot of time there. I tried to post an image but I couldn't figure it out.

I saw the Aston Martin at theSpyMuseumin DC a couple of years ago. Felt like a kid again.

As a kid growing up in Georgia, I often saw ads for Palisades Park in DC Comics titles. Superman, or another DC hero, would be featured in the ads, offering discount coupons. It always sounded like such a cool place.

Apparently, in 1932, men never went anywhere without wearing a suit and tie!
