Still no Winner!

Let’s take another look at that mystery photo:

Where was this picture taken?

Where was this picture taken?

Surely someone has seen this geography. While you’re wracking your brain trying to figure out where on earth this rock formation might be found, let’s have some fun. As they used to say on TV, “And now, this…”

That commercial brought back many childhood memories. As I recall, Rube Goldberg inventions were sometimes featured in the Sunday comics. But while we’re thinking about that photo and enjoying old time commercials, let’s look at another.

Another study found Americans drink, on average, 22 gallons of alcohol a year.

That means, on average, Americans get about 41 miles to the gallon.

Kind of makes you proud to be American.
