Default Al Capone's Vault

I was thinking about this this afternoon, if I said, "Al Capone's Vault" would you know what I was talking about?

I'm pretty sure the only reason my son would know it is if he happened to be listening to us if we made a reference to it, and cared enough to ask.

It is a very specific non-event which I was not old enough to appreciate and certainly did not watch, but I am aware of the basic outline as I was alive at the time and the dumbass who was involved is unfortunately still part of our media landscape.

It was a vitally important part of the American canon, and a cultural touchstone for the ages. I am horrified that the youths of today might be unfamiliar.

I didn't watch it or anything, either, but :lolstossel:

I knew it was on and tuned it for the last few minutes because it was a safe bet that nothing climactic would happen before that.

So...What height did he master?

Was it a record breaker, or was it a personal triumph?

He was too early for the composite poles, right?
