The word pagan came from paganus , who mean peasant . Its was a way to significate than christianism was the religion of the elite and paganism the one of the savage worker class.

''Trickster shows us how we trick OURSELVES. Her rampant curiosity backfires, but, then, something NEW is discovered (though usually not what She expected)! This is where creativity comes from—experiment, do something different, maybe even something forbidden, and voila! A breakthrough occurs! Ha! Ha! We are released! The world is created anew! Do something backwards, break your own traditions, the barrier breaks; destroy the world as you know it, let the new in.''

When you're that low to the ground and have no fenders, you really shouldn't ride where horses have been.

This one is interesting:



Michelin developed a pneumatic tire for railroad cars and locomotives. It gave a smoother ride better traction, and less rail wear, but fuel consumption increased and the tires had to be changed regularly. For whatever reason, it didn't catch on, but the test trials used unique rail vehicles like this.

Apart from having been stretched, that hardly looks unique, it looks like an old Galloping Goose-type railmotor.

Here's a really horrifying vehicle:


The car is designed to facilitate conversation between the driver and passengers; the driver sits in the back. And you thought that cell phones were a distraction.

I've seen an old advertisement for a similar car from Baker Electric, advertised as a "lady's car".

I like the one with the all-wooden body. By the time I was born, the only wood in car bodies was wood-grain pattern vinyl stickers on the sides of station wagons.

This is a 1920 Dodge, bought new and hand-covered in copper in the hope it would catch on. Unfortunately it didn't, but I want it!

Taken at the Southward Car Museum just north of Wellington.

I imagine you saw the post on your iPhone or similar? Not everyone has the same OS, my esteemed DrewP. On Android you don't see a little square with a question mark. Instead you only see a blank space. It looks like Captn. Dirigible is referring to the previous post...

I haven't seen anyone else mention the Dobles but they were by far the most sophisticated steam cars manufactured (as far as I know). Here's a http://www.steamcar.net/uniflow-doble.html to an interesting tidbit on the particular type of steam engine that they used if anyone's interested!
