New York Port Authority Approves Statue Of Liberty USB Drive

Not really, but if they had too – they would.  The Statue of Liberty USB drive is a perfect replica of the original at Liberty Island.  The manufacturer put great detail into make sure the smallest grooves and carves match the real Statue of Liberty.

Available in 2, 4 and 8GB sizes. If you have a moment, here is some information you probably didn’t know about the Statue of Librty: The first model, on a small scale, was built in 1870. This first statue is now in the Jardin du Luxembourg in Paris. A second model, also on a small scale, was further brought to Maceió, a city in the Northeast of Brazil. This model is in front of Maceió’s first city hall, built in 1869, which is now a museum. The statue is of a robed woman (i.e. goddess) holding a torch, and is made of a sheeting of pure copper, hung on a framework of steel with the exception of the flame of the torch, which is coated in gold leaf (originally made of copper and later altered to hold glass panes). It stands atop a rectangular stonework pedestal with a foundation in the shape of an irregular eleven-pointed star. The statue is 151 ft (46 m) tall, but with the pedestal and foundation, it is 305 ft (93 m) tall. 30 people at a time can fit up into the crown, but visitors are no longer allowed in there. There are 354 steps inside the statue and its pedestal. The Statue of Liberty was engineered to withstand heavy winds. Winds of 50 miles per hour cause the Statue to sway 3 inches (7.62 cm) and the torch to sway 5 inches (12.7 cm). Reference material:  Wikipedia.
