The book traces the history of Indian all the way from co-founder George M. The book is large — about a foot in length and 10 inches in width. The cover features a beautifully embossed logo. The pages of the book are high-quality and the photos ideal for long bouts of staring.
My only quibble is that text is a little small for a book Wild Eyed Indian this size. But at that distance the words can be hard to read. As far as the content of those words is concerned, author Holmstrom is an old hand at this sort of thing, having written similar books about BMW and Harley-Davidson.
The depth of his experience seems to come through in his writing. Occasionally, though, things can be repetitive, with the same information being stated in consecutive paragraphs. The book has pages, but just six of them are dedicated to covering the roughly 60 years betweenwhen Indian shut its Springfield, Massachusetts, factory, andwhen Polaris unveiled the first of the line-up we know today. For instance, I would have loved more detail on folks like Philip S.
Zanghi, who held a dubious claim to the Indian trademark in the s, duped investors into thinking he was going manufacture bikes with titanium engines, and ended up going to prison for fraud, tax evasion and money laundering. No such luck. Marsh rabbits, cottontail rabbits and foxes effectively disappeared. The scourge started like a scene out of a science fiction movie, when Category 5 Hurricane Andrew destroyed a python breeding facility in The constrictors escaped into the surrounding swamp and began to reproduce at alarming rates.
On a steady diet of native rodents, birds and even deer, these big mammas regularly grow to 20 feet or more. The result is a more adaptable killing machine that threatens to further upset the ecological Wild Eyed Indian in South Florida. When you stir the genetic petri dish, you never know what will happen.
Take lions and tigers. And when lions mate with tigers, neither species passes on the gene that moderates growth. The result is a hybrid offspring that can grow far larger than either of its parents. In fact the largest feline ever is a liger named Hercules, who tipped the scales at pounds when Guinness weighed him back in Fortunately, ligers appear only in captivity. None of these overgrown cats has escaped to terrorize townspeople, so far. But you never know.
Before we had murder hornet to fear, we had the killer bees. These hybridized honeybees were born in a laboratory in s Brazil, Wild Eyed Indian, where a scientist postulated that European bees would produce more honey if crossed with their African relatives. Nothing scary about love. Africanized honeybees surround a European queen in a laboratory experiment. It turns out that the African bees have a gene that makes them more aggressive than their European counterparts, and that fit a certain persistent storyline in American culture.
When the bees escaped in it was like a xenophobic fantasy come to life: A horde of Africanized invaders coming straight up through Mexico. Hollywood even made a movie about it, a bad one, called The Swarm. As for humans though, death by Africanized honey bees is relatively rare.
One commonly Wild Eyed Indian statistic claims the hybrid bees have killed about 1, people worldwide since escaping the Brazilian lab more than 60 years ago. Last summer a Tennessee police department warned would-be suspects not to flush their stash down the toilet, lest illicit amphetamines enter the water supply and create wild-eyed meth gators. Furthermore, if it made it far enough we could create meth-gators in Shoal Creek and the Tennessee Wild Eyed Indian down in North Alabama.
A local reporter finally debunked the story, in one of those segments that ends with the whole news team having a good-natured chuckle. Meth gators, it turns out, are fake news. Even Mickey Paulk, who raised the squirrel from infancy, concedes that much. The only debate is whether or not the little guy was on meth. Deez Nutz left and Mickey Paulk. Via Facebook. So they took Deez Nutz outside and let him go. Paulk was in the wind too. The curtains were drawn.
