    Jake, Helen, and the Yeagers once tried to levitate the Pentagon. This is a reference to a real-life “attempt” to do this in October 1967 by Abbie Hoffman and Allen Ginsberg during an anti-war march that was prevented from reaching the building, though the characters aren’t part of a larger protest in this flashback. (This is the same march where George Harris famously placed a carnation in a soldier’s gun) Whereas Hoffman and Ginsberg were doing guerilla theatre, young Jake actually believes it could be levitated…

    Oh whatever
