      Wow is this really in 1980? Feels so cool looking back in time to pictures people have taken, especially since I wasn't even alive when this was captured.

      He's not a corpse. It may be that he was just trying to catch some rays... having just read the nearby Coppertone billboard.

      We used to hang out on the highway when we couldn't sneak in to the concerts on the pier. We could still hear the music on the highway. It was a lot of fun growing up in the city.
