Between Vicksburg and Greenville right on hwy 61 in the Mississippi delta on the Miss side of the river

 

These two planters were literally right across the hwy from each other. The blue one is a twin row planter.

Practice for the Redneck Engineering Exam


>> We are sick and tired of hearing about how dumb people are in the South,
>> and we challenge any so-called  "smart" Yankee to take this exam:
>>
>> 1. Calculate the smallest limb diameter on a persimmon tree that will
>> support a 10 pound possum.
>>
>> 2. Which of these cars will rust out the quickest when placed on blocks
>> in your front yard?
>>
>> (A)  '65 Ford Fairlane
>> (B)  '69 Chevrolet Chevelle
>> (C)  '64  Pontiac  GTO
>>
>> 3. If your uncle builds a still which operates at a capacity of 20
>> gallons of shine produced per hour, how many car radiators are required
>> to condense the product?
>>
>> 4. A woodcutter has a chainsaw which operates at 2700 RPM. The density of
>> the pine trees in the plot to be harvested is 470 per acre. The plot is
>> 2.3 acres in size. The average tree diameter is 14 inches.  How many
>> Budweiser's will be drunk before the trees are cut down?
>>
>> 5. A front porch is constructed of 2x8 pine on 24-inch centers with a
>> field rock foundation. The span is 8 feet and the porch length is 16 eet.
>> The porch floor is 1-inch rough sawn pine.  When the porch

Hobby,

 

By my engineering calculator and a complete study of this test I figure that you have crossed the Iowa line,  probably home and have the illusion of safety.

Re: A few pictures...

Just took a load of logs into the "south". ie: crossed the river into Kentucky. It's amazing how a state line along a physical boarder changes things.

Re: A few pictures...

Hey Buckfarmer I'm one them just across the river and it's not as "South" as I wish it was! I work with some guys from around Pickwick Lake in TN and they say they know when they're far enough south is when people quit drinking "pop" and and start drinking "Cokes"
