Day 334 No Punkin Chunkin this year
filed lawsuit
Image by the past tends to disappear
The event, held for years on a succession of rural Sussex County farm fields, was to have moved to the same grounds that host Firefly Music Festival. After a volunteer filed a personal injury lawsuit in 2013 over an ATV accident at the 2011 Chunk, the farmer hosting it in Sussex County said he wouldn’t let it return to his property.

But the show must go on, So
they came up with Punkin Chunkin: Superchunk.
This was put together full of holes..
Here are some of the issues I found, Mythbusters style!

#1 They called a single wide trailer a double wide many times ~BUSTED~
#2 They said the moonshine still was copper when it was plastic or wood painted copper ~BUSTED~
#3 They said that moonshine was in the still but it was clearly Water ~Busted~
#4 They said the voting for who gets to blow up the van was up to the viewers but that part of the show aired at 10:00 PM, and the van was hit at what looked like high noon. ~BUSTED~
#5 the van was going to be blown up by a pumpkin trigger, but they ran a detonation cord to a safe zone and showed it on TV ~BUSTED~

I was not a fan this year guys! lets hope next year is better!

Taşkışla building was built between 1846-1852 by the British architect William James Smith and his headworker Istefan in Neo-Renaissance style. Used as the Military Hospital of the Medical School, it was employed to treat French soldiers during the Crimean War (1853-1856). Taşkışla was converted to military barracks in 1860, for the protection of the Dolmabahçe Palace. After the formation of the Turkish Republic, the building was assigned to the Ministery of Education. Renovated by Paul Bonatz and Emin Onat between 1943-1950, it became the Rectorate building and the Faculty of Architecture and Civil Engineering of İstanbul Technical University (İTU) in 1950. After İTU moved to the Ayazağa campus, converting the building into a hotel became a topic of debate. The government of the day rented the building to a firm for 49 years, to be used as a hotel. But after the lawsuit, filed by the academic staff, was won, the building was given back to İTU in 1989. In 1999 the building had another renovation and is currently being used as the Faculty of Architecture of İTU.

Neo-Rönesans üsluba sahip Taşkışla binası, 1846-1852 yıllarında İngiliz mimar William James Smith ve yardımcısı kalfa İstefan tarafından yapıldı. Mekteb-i Tıbbiye-i Şahane için hastane olarak tasarlanan yapı, Kırım Savaşı (1853-1856) sırasında Fransız askerlerinin tedavisi için kullanıldı. 1860’da onarılarak Dolmabahçe Sarayı’nı korumak üzere askerî kışlaya çevrildi. Cumhuriyet’in ilanından sonra Milli Eğitim Bakanlığı’na devredilen Taşkışla, 1943-1950 yıllarında Paul Bonatz ve Emin Onat tarafından restore edildi. 1950’de İstanbul Teknik Üniversitesi (İTÜ) Rektörlüğü ve Mimarlık-İnşaat Fakültesi olarak hizmete girdi. 1980’lerin başında İTÜ’nün Ayazağa Kampüsü’ne taşınmasıyla yapının otele dönüştürülmesi gündeme geldi. Dönemin hükümeti tarafından otel olarak kullanılmak üzere 49 yıllığına kiralanan Taşkışla, öğretim üyelerinin açtığı davanın kazanılmasıyla 1989’da İTÜ’ye geri verildi. 1999’da bir onarım daha geçiren yapı, hâlen İTÜ Mimarlık Fakültesi olarak kullanılıyor.
