Dec 9, 2009: Stagecoach
Looks like a well preserved example, of an old Wells Fargo stagecoach.

"What, they have a category for stagecoaches made of 1.5 million toothpicks and no glue? I don't get it?"
SPUCK Wednesday Dec 9 06:02 AM
A whole new meaning for "splinters in the ass".

Trivia fact: The glue was made from the horses that were originally intended to pull the completed stagecoach.

Clearly the glue is the villain in this story.

in the UK the main brand of stick glue it/was Pritt stick. Me and my classmates all called it prick stick at least until we could read and realised it wasn't. Good job we had no idea what a prick was then. other than a sharp thing. I bet our parents and teachers giggled like loonies behind our backs. Especially as the second most common brand was UHU (yoohoo). They has very different smells "Hey, can we swap glues? my UHU smell funny and I want the prick stick."

The question is: do you think this is what his wife meant when she asked him to take up a hobby?

He thought it was unladylike for her to be chewing on a toothpick, so he glued them all together.

holy bananas. another example of too much time, too little to do. Does it say if that thing is full size?
Elspode Saturday Dec 12 03:49 PM
It's really not as daunting as it seems. It only works out to an average of 274 toothpicks per day...for 365 days...for 15 years.

Watch the video in the original link - That baby IS full size!
xoxoxoBruce Saturday Dec 12 10:44 PM
You're right, I didn't watch the video before, because of the Nissan commercial at the beginning. I think the 250lbs is very low, or that happened when it was only partially done.
classicman Sunday Dec 13 06:32 PM
I dunno - It may weight 250. The glue and a bunch of toothpicks are going have the same density as a coach built with solid oak.

What else was a 72 year old to do for the last 15 years?
xoxoxoBruce Monday Dec 14 12:02 PM
Uh, chase young women?
ZenGum Monday Dec 14 06:21 PM
They keep getting away.
xoxoxoBruce Tuesday Dec 15 02:18 AM
Exactly, so he can keep chasing and not have to find something else to do.
ZenGum Tuesday Dec 15 04:33 AM
Maybe, if he can use the stage coach as transport, he can catch up with them.
casimendocina Tuesday Dec 22 02:48 AM
He obviously hasn't been chasing any athletes...
