In 1992, when I lived in Alaska, and I had never heard, or heard of, Phish, I was driving home from work when I was wakened from my afternoon commuter stupor by the excellent jam in Tweezer which caused me to focus more on the road, where to my surprise, I observed a hot air balloon was just crash landing through some electrical power lines which happened to cross the road on which I was traveling home.

After which I contacted several of my GD friends to alert them that there was a new game in town.

Top 5? Meh. But a fun story just the same.

Phish is my GOAT. Meatstick is my go-to song after bagging a peak.

So being killed by falling aircraft or satellite is really a thing in Alaska? I remember that Maggie's boyfriend died that way in Northern Exposure.
Does it happen more frequently than grizzly attacks?

My 7 favorite deep cut Rush songs:

The Enemy Within - Grace Under Pressure
Digital Man - Signals
Natural Science - Permanent Waves
Vital Signs - Moving Pictures
Alien Shore - Counterparts
Marathon - Power Windows
Something for Nothing - 2112 (is side A of 2112 a deep cut? I'm thinking no.)
