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.
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.Very cool. You'd never expect to see a hunk of the Berlin wall in Seattle.
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.Speaking of weird, here's a statue of Lenin in a major American city

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.

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...Totally weird. I never knew Seatle was a communist city.
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.
