Non-Free Trade Zone

Welcome to Barstow.

Who comes up with this stuff? What an incredible graphic. What if there were no words? This sign could be interpreted as:

"No Numbered Cookie Sample Distribution"
"Don't Give Money to Your Children"
"Don't Steal From the Hand that Feeds You"
"Small People May Rob You"

A few more:

"Giants Collect Tolls from Trolls" - Rock Candy

"Don't feed the politicians" - Lavi
"Bribing Leprechauns Prohibited" - Lavi

"No Tithing" - D
"Quickly Grasshopper - try to snatch the coin from my hand..." - D

No tithing!

Don't use wooden nickles to bribe gods with clay feet and other metaphors.

Hey Lavi -

Just how large is that picture file? It takes 10 seconds to load -- so it's either a large file or you've switched to Winders Me

It takes 10 seconds to load...

Could it be um, a piss-poor connection?

Actually, have my other images been that slow to load? I was my site from a friend's DSL and it was god-awful slow.

If that's the case, I'll start posting smaller shots with links to the larger versions.

Quickly Grasshopper - try to snatch the coin from my hand...

Every now and then when your life gets complicated and the weasels start closing in, the only cure is to load up on heinous chemicals and then drive like a bastard from Hollywood to Las Vegas ... with the music at top volume and at least a pint of ether.

-Hunter S. Thompson

Dedicated to the other side of Las Vegas, namely; the sprawling, mad, incoherent underpinnings of the world's favorite destination.

That, and the occasional ranting about nothing in particular.
