News, but not the serious kind
Flying cars not a total success…
Many of you have heard of the German highway where there is practically no speed limit and you can drive as fast as you want, called the autobahn – not to be mistaken for John James Audubon, that bird artist whose name sounds kind of similar.
Anyway, what you may not know, is that once a year they remove a 20-foot section of the autobahn with no warning, just to see how many cars can make it over the gap. As you can see from the photo below, not everyone succeeds. This annual experiment may have inspired the famous sculpture “Cadillac Ranch,” in Texas (see thumbnail photo by Rik Gruwez).
Wait, maybe this isn’t what is happening here at all. Alternative suggestions are welcome, via Post a Comment.
