Let's Play A Game

When I was a kid I used to watch Sesame Street and The Electric Company like most kids did.....One of the games they would play was "One of these things is not like the others" or something like that. (Hey it was a long time ago, I can't remember exactly). The idea was you were given a series of pictures and you had to pick out which one was different. Sometimes you would see three fruits and a vegetable or 4 random items but three of them were green and one was orange, you get the idea.

So, here we go with a Kwaj version of:

One Of These Things Is Not Like The Others!





Do you see it?

They are all fire hydrants, right? But one of them is very different than the others.....

Now why do you suppose one of them (the only one I've found on island by the way) is bright yellow and has those striped posts around it when all of the others are brown with no protective posts?

My guess is that someone ran over the yellow one (back when it was still brown like the others) at some point and this is the result.

The funniest part of this is the yellow one is in the least high traffic area of all of these pictured.

Why doesn't that surprise me? ... By now, nothing much on Kwaj surprises me nowadays! :)

For those non-inmates of 'Kwajatraz': we have two distinct water systems on island; potable and non-potable. Potable water is mostly gathered up from massive rainwater catchments in the infield area between the runway and taxiway on the airfield. One inch of rainwater on the catchments equals somewhere around 800,000 gallons of fresh water. Potable water lines, pumps, spigots etc. are labeled yellow.

Non-potable water is used for toilets, irrigation and is chlorinated but not fully treated for drinkability. (Previously, the NPW system was salt water.) Non-potable water systems are labeled red.

Fire hydrants are on the potable water system.
