Indiana State Fair

RiesenSchwein.jpgDid I tell you that I think pigs are cute? Well, to be honest, I'm not so sure about this one. He is four years old and weighs 1175 lbs., or 532 kg for the metric people. He is one of the attractions at the Indiana State Fair, where Tom and I spent roughly four hours walking around in 90°F heat today. Good thing that there are many airconditioned buildings with indoor exhibits to enjoy, otherwise I would have passed out.

We combined a shopping trip to COSTCO in Indianapolis with a visit to the fairgrounds. While the focus is clearly on agriculture, you can see lots of other very interesting inventions. Would you like shoes with big springs under the heels, or an extremely comfortable hanging chair? We signed up to win a Harley, and we calculated our 'health footprints'. I held a two inches long Brazilian cockroach on my hand. Other people where petting centipedes, five inches long, as thick as my thumb.
