Perth’s David Archibald is the early (and deserving) favourite for first prize in Iowahawk’s 3rd Annual Earth Week Cruise-In, but massive respect is due to John Lien for de-treeing practically the entire state of Virginia.

    1. I want to see a photo of John Lien’s gully one year on – or doesn’t it rain in Virginia?

    1. #1 – Will trade for a photo of you behind bars or on a treadmill.

    1. Not to rain (tee hee!) on your parade, Bryla, but there’s this thing known as “hydroseeding“.  It’s been around for a few decades, and works nicely.

      Education: It’s not just a paycheck for deadbeats.

    1. David Archibald – your turn to organise a Blairite social event.  I believe the stink boat is on the hard at RPYC so that is nice and central for us all to get to it.

      Looking forward to it.

      No stilhetto’s or dark soled shoes I assume?

    1. PS:  Man, that is a COOL way to clear and grub a piece of topography.  It beats a D7, or even a D10, any day.

    1. We are supposed to be getting a bit of land clearing done on the minesite in the next few weeks. Bet we dont get anything that cool to do the job though.

    1. That thing would most definitely shift the shiftless.

      You whistle, I’ll point.

    1. Lurv the Roadrunner & the A Model

      Once owned a modified, roadworthy Beetle with a VW Speedway (’Midget’) race engine: power-to-weight and ‘torquiness’ of a V8, can see how James Dean’s 4 cyl 50s Porsche 550 could do 160 mph …

    1. I see that the average Iowahawk reader is a helluva lot richer than the average Blandwagon reader. I think I need to look at diversifying my audience.

      Do not click

    1. Bryla – that’s no way to speak of his wife!

    1. #10: I WANT one!

    1. Two hundred and eighty-nine lousy grams of carbon per kilometre, that’s all I get from the gaia-faust.
      Against competition like Iowahawks’ I may as well get into a Pious.
      Anyone up for a skinny-soy-mock-baby-chino?

    1. #10 – Pickles, is it legal to use that on hippies?

      What’s with the 1970’s porn soundtrack though?

    1. Perth’s David Archibald vroom,vroom,vroom.
      John Lien says Spring is here, flowers blooming, blah blah blah.
      Bryla says doom, doom.
      OT? Glenn Duncan asks, Energiser Bunny remind anyone of someone?
      Got me thinking of Oskar Matzerath

    1. #14. Mmmmmm. Raping Gaia. Earth porn.

    1. #16 – does this count?

    1. #17 To me very boring.

    1. I’m surprised Iowahawk forgot this; BTW it is used to carry bryla to and from her gaia saving activities. I have no idea who the man is, but he seems like a nice guy.

    1. Hey Bryla. Are you sitting up in bed yet, or are the nurses putting the pencil in your mouth?

    1. Something about this thread reminded me of the story of the woman who yelled out the window to her son, “Get away from that wheelbarrow, Floyd. You don’t know nothin’ ‘bout machinery!”

    1. Stand back, children; let a real Gaia- basher through.

    1. I’m not all that interested in wheels, but, man, I’d give anything for that boat.

      Little tip for Bryla the Righteous:  John Lien is clearing land for a farm (that means FOOD), those look to be scrub trees anyway (translation:  good for nothing but sucking moisture out of the water table), and trust me, Virginia has lots and lots of trees to spare.

    1. #22 Wow! That thing’s so big, it’s got its own gravity.

    1. Re #22, just so John is planning on feeding HUMANS, Rebecca, and not Mother Gaia™ friendly vehicles sucking down biofuels.

      Either wholesome vegetables or fruits, or maybe even some tasty beef.

    1. And so they should, what’s wrong with real ones?

      Posted by burrah on 2008 04 28 at 12:23 PM • permalink


  1. #26, Because, burrah, you’d most likely get real ones from people who don’t have the stones to stop you taking them (people like Bryla, you see), and they really aren’t big enough to bother with.
