THE COUNTRY CORNER

FYI

Sahara Desert
In the Sahara Desert, there is a town named Tidikelt, which did not receive a drop of rain for ten years.
Technically though, the driest place on Earth is in the valleys of the Antarctic near Ross Island. There has been no rainfall there for two million
years.

Spain
Spain literally means 'the land of rabbits.'

St. Paul, Minnesota
St. Paul, Minnesota , was originally called Pig's Eye after a man named Pierre 'Pig's Eye' Parrant who set up the
first business there.

Roads
Chances that a road is unpaved in the U.S.A.: 1%, in Canada: 75%

Texas

The deepest hole ever made in the world is in Texas. It is as deep as 20
empire state buildings but only 3 inches wide.

United States
The Eisenhower interstate system requires that one-mile in every five must be straight. These straight sections are usable as airstrips in times of war or other emergencies.


Water falls
The water of Angel Falls (the World's highest) in Venezuela drops 3,212 feet (979 meters). They are 15 times higher than Niagara Falls.

 

Redneck in NYC

A Redneck from Vermont walked into a bank in New York City and asked for the loan officer. He told the loan officer that he was going to Bakersfield on business for two weeks and needed to borrow $5,000, and that he was not a depositor of the bank.
The Bank Officer told him that the bank would need some security for the loan so the Redneck handed over the keys to a new Ferrari. The car was parked on the street in front of the bank. The Redneck produced the title and everything checked out. The loan officer agreed to hold the car as collateral for the loan and apologized for having to charge 12% interest. Later the bank's president and its officers all enjoyed a good laugh at the Redneck using a $250,000 Ferrari as collateral for $5000 loan.
An employee of the bank drove the Ferrari into the bank's underground garage and parked it. Two weeks later, the Redneck returned, repaid the $5,000 loan and the interest of $23.07. The loan officer said 'Sir, we are very happy to have your business, and the transaction has worked out nicely, but we are a little puzzled. While you were away, we checked you out, and found that you are a multimillionaire.
What puzzles us is why you would borrow $5,000?'
The Vermont Redneck replied, "Where else in New York City, could I park my car for two weeks for only $23.07 and expect it to be there when I return?"
HEY ALL REDNECK'S AIN'T STUPID!!
