cambie: I thought this seemed a little interesting at first, and then I saw that he was charging 5k per rock. Are you kidding me? I know he's got to feed his family and all, but it sort of takes the fun of it away when I find out he's not just doing it because he had a passion for it.
Mega Steve: 99 COUNTIES??? What the fark for?
thenooch: "FREEDOM ROCK"!!?111!?!!/sounds derpy
RogermcAllen: On a related note, I've made a resolution to get a BJ in all 99 of Iowas counties. I won't be charging anything; I just have a passion for BJs .
99 counties but this ditch ain't one!
memebot_of_doom: Ugly as expected
traylor: He should paint a sock in each state
some_beer_drinker: he should put on a frock in each state

video man: [www.vibe.com image 600x401]What rocks from Pottawattamie County may look like.
KiwDaWabbit: video man: [www.vibe.com image 600x401]What rocks from Pottawattamie County may look like.You got us there.Although we may have the occasional shirtless hobo sprinting across the five lanes known as Broadway with a case of Natty Ice in tow on a weekday morning, thanks to all of the "Adderall" we consume, we happen to have impeccable concentration and focus behind the wheel. Life is a lot simpler over here. We only have to worry about the houses with tinfoil covering the windows "spontaneously combusting", but not terrible driving, especially after the first snow every year. No, that is for you, Omaha. I experienced this first hand after the first significant winter storm of the season, where there were no major thoroughfares left untouched by Omahans engaging in collisions. It was if Mayor Suttle had announced that it was destruction derby day in Omaha and that all citizens would get $100 gift certificates to Applebee's if they obstructed enough traffic.
video man: ...who told you about derby day?
yequalsy: I've long wondered why seemingly every home in rural Iowa features a big rock in the yard.
UsikFark: Now, why 99 counties? Well, if you take a look at a map of Iowa, you'll see Kossuth County sticks out, as it is the size of any two counties to the east and west. I think they are just farking with us.
Eddie T. Head: So one could reach the county seat within 24 hours from anywhere in the county. Seems silly now, but in 1846, it made sense.Why yes, I'm an Iowa native
cryinoutloud: I have seen some very nice painted rocks. I salute him. Eddie T. Head:So one could reach the county seat within 24 hours from anywhere in the county. Seems silly now, but in 1846, it made sense.Why yes, I'm an Iowa nativeso that explains why Georgia has 154 counties. They're a little slower around there.
