Danger Danger...Useless Thread

Please read no further if you are disturbed by non technical data or remotely funny pictures.

Disclaimer: This potato is over the age of 18.

The wood liners looks like wood liners used for the porch area, so I would say the potato has the size of a football??

I no longer have to wonder - "whatever happened to Isaac from the Love Boat?"

See, this post ended up answering a forum member's question !

I disagree -- if you look at the ratio of the width wood that is rolled on the edges to the width of the wood that is flat, as well as the spacing between boards, I'd say it could be a wooden park bench rather than decking. Which makes that potato on the larger side of average at best.

And I'll echo Brucelee's observation on the other picture -- 2 fantastic rears!

Shouldn't stuff like this go in off-topic section?

Anyway... The largest potato ever was supposedly 7 pounds 1 ounce.

When people risk their lives, shouldn't it be for something very important?
Well, it better be.
But what is so important about driving faster than anyone else?
Lots of people go through life doing things badly. Racing's important to men who do it well.
When you're racing, it's life. Anything that happens before or after is just waiting.

I am happy to see that the potato is 18, otherwise there might be some legal ramification for posing in the nude.

I'd like to take this one step further and suggest we start a separate section dedicated to discussion of tubers and legumes.

I'm going to have to disagree with both of you, as the wood closely resembles stacked rail-road ties in my mind. That would indicate the potato is approximately the same dimensions as the Compaq P910 computer-monitor collecting dust in my garage with roughly the same monetary value.

Alternatively, the wood could be flat-ended toothpicks shot at high magnification which would make the subject-potato preternaturally small, minute even.

These wide difference in perception might actually indicate that the tuber in question is in truth, a magnificently rendered CGI potato.
