I believe that there is a wide no-entry zone near the dam to prevent boats from being sucked into the intake towers (those big towers that you see in the pic) providing water to the turbines inside the dam, so you probably shouldn't go scuba diving near the dam.

I've never seen anything (well, aside from commercials and a few minutes of some of the movies unavoidably seen while channel-surfing) involving the Transformers so I have no clue about the Megatron reference.

My brother's gf actually knows the guy who made that map from Rutgers. I hail from the old people and asians portion.

It is shockingly accurate.

I figured that chikie was kinda-sorta old but I didn't think of him being Asian. :D

None of the eagles I've watched snatch fish from a lake (several ospreys and one bald) were eating carrion that night.

From the link there are 2 other such pages (with some repeats). The first page omits the "-3" at the end while second replaces the "3" with "2".
