    People who live in cold countries, in addition to having really bad taste in Bermuda shorts, have some strange ideas about how to have fun.

    Hey, I resemble that remark! Except for the "living in cold weather" I love it! I guess it's all a matter of POV because to me it's weird a bunch of people sitting around a tv gobbling junk food and beer while getting all riled up about (put a sport here) on tv. While I loved to play sports, if'n I ain't playin' it I don't care about it.

    I do like antique tractor pulls, but don't stick around for the modified BS. Just a purist I guess.

    THANKS Jon, steam stuff its great. Have you seen the doc on Netflix about EV motorcycle race on the Isle of Man course called Charge? I guess there is subsequent races too.

    You should see all of the weird stuff that happens at festivals in small Colorado mountain towns. In a town near us, there is an annual Frozen Dead Guy Days, to commemorate the discovery of a cryogenically frozen corpse stored in a resident's backyard shed. I couldn't make this up if I tried: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frozen_Dead_Guy_Days

    Have not seen that EV motorcycle documentary; I need to take a look.

    LOL!!! Frozen Dead Guy festival! That's right out of a Cohen Bro's movie! And you're right Jon, truth is stranger(and funnier) than fiction. And you are right you couldn't make up such a bizarre story if you tried. Thanks again.

    There's a lot of interesting characters in Charge too. And some really cool tech. I hope they make a new movie because it looks by the news it has really improved. As a guy who just kinda jumped on the bandwagon with new solar panels and a Chevy Volt, it's way cool not having have an engine going to get around, or a bill from PG&E Its not perfect and it can be a challenge being an early adopter but we've gotten in late enough that there's starting to be more and more infrastructure like EV charging stations around. If you kinda want to see there is an app called Plugshare that shows all the local places to charge, some for free, some you pay.
