Nevada's travel page says they have 6.3 acres, small territories in California and Pennsylvania, and 49k miles of property on Venus. The official currency is cookie dough and poker chips.

Very cool. You'd never expect to see a hunk of the Berlin wall in Seattle.
I think those shoes that the woman is wearing were designed to cause impotence in men.

Good to see a few other people participating. I guess everyone else is still busy making sure their seats are soft enough.
Keep it weird!

It's a small piece that somehow made its way to a Turkish restaurant nearby. There's also a huge one that Bill Gates brought to Microsoft campus in Redmond, across the lake, and one in Seattle Center.

I should have thought of Malossia! That's even in my county, too. Which is actually saying a lot given it's the smallest county in Nevada (Carson City cheats imo). 🤣

But, that gives me an idea. Standby!

Speaking of weird, here's a statue of Lenin in a major American city

Somebody diligently repaints blood on his hands

You cannot see it from the front, but the artist, probably in a quiet protest, literally made him to sit on bayonets, something Napoleon famously said you cannot do.

The story: Statue of Lenin (Seattle) - Wikipedia

The Statue of Lenin is a 16 ft (5 m) bronze statue of Communist revolutionary Vladimir Lenin in the Fremont neighborhood of Seattle, Washington, United States. It was created by Bulgarian sculptor Emil Venkov and initially put on display in the Czechoslovak Socialist Republic in 1988, the year before the Velvet Revolution. In 1993, the statue was bought by an American who had found it lying in a scrapyard. He brought it home with him to Washington state but died before he could carry out his plans for formally displaying it.

Since 1995, the statue has been held in trust waiting for a buyer, standing on temporary display for the last 26 years on a prominent street corner in Fremont. It has become a local landmark, frequently being either decorated or vandalized.

Totally weird. I never knew Seatle was a communist city.
It isn't, it is an upper-middle-class coastal liberal city. They would shriek in horror if forced to live in a real communist city for a month. Still, somebody insists on painting blood on Lenin's hands, so not all is lost...

Also in Fremont - a (fake) rocketship

Apparently you're quite good at finding the weirdness. You'd think with CP3 owners scattered all over the planet that more weirdness would get posted. It's a lack of pride in owning a cool motorcycle and indicative of the general moral decay of modern society. Maybe not.....on second thought it is.

I guess I win the all expense paid trip to the back the dragon. First 5 weird photos with their bike in front a weird or unusual roadside attraction wins. This is my #5.
