Still on New Mexico...

Reason #14 why they claim to be the BEST US State!

In Carrizozo, it’s against the law for a female to appear unshaven in public

Reason #8. New Mexico is home to the world's largest hot air balloon festival; the biggest enchilada and the globe's most colossal cornhole board.

(Gonna need some help defining/explainng that.)

Re: The New Joke Thread

FWIW: Cornhole (also known regionally as bags, sack toss, or bean bag toss) is a lawn game, in which players take turns throwing 16 ounce bags of corn kernels at a raised platform (board) with a hole in the far end. A bag in the hole scores 3 points, while one on the board scores 1 point. Play continues until a team or player reaches or exceeds the score of 21 by means of cancellation scoring.
The American Cornhole Association requires platforms be a 48" x 24" rectangle made from 1/2-inch plywood. The front of the platform stands 2-1/2 to 4 inches tall and the back of the platform sits 12 inches off the ground. Regulation corn bags need to be 6-inches square, made from duck canvas and be filled with two cups of corn feed.

Re: The New Joke Thread

Two whales are sitting at a bar.

One whale says to the other one, “OooooOOOOeeeeeeEEEEEOoohhhhhh! AAAAAHHHHHHRrrrrroooooooOOOOOOOeeeeeEEEE!!” [whale sounds of course]

The other whale looks at him and responds, “Go home, Frank. You’re drunk.”

Scientists have grown human vocal cords in a petri dish.

The results speak for themselves.

Re: The New Joke Thread

My wife said that the electric byke was pretty neat but for grocery shopping she really wished it had a better system. So I was thinking about this thing for her Chrismas present: https://microlino-car.com/en/microlino

Should be able to load/unload it from the aft deck using the main boom.
I think...

Re: The New Joke Thread

Yeah, but then you'd have to have that Beamer personality to go along with the ride.

Re: The New Joke Thread

The Isetta was I think an Italian car, BMW I think built it under license. I don’t believe they were badged BMW etc, and I believe they had a two stroke air cooled engine, my guess would be Sachs as they built a lot to good two strokes back in the day.
Post WWII there were a few micro cars I guess they would be called produced for people who couldn’t afford big cars or maybe that’s all they could produce? I don’t know.
The Messerschmidt is another favorite of mine, but I think the Isetta more practicable, I mean for an Urban transit vehicle, what more do you need?
Certainly not a three row seat SUV.

I think it’s time for this type of auto to come back, but then we drive a Mazdaspeed Miata.
