Hands on car contests
Has anyone ever participated in one of those contests where you have to keep your hand on a car longer than anyone else? My DH told me today he'd like to try to win a car that way someday so on a whim I googled it. He has no idea what kind of competition he'd have. There's a lady in Nebraska who kept her hand on a car for six and a half days! :confused:

I hope she was constipated because I srsly don't want to know where her fecal matter would have ended up.

They have had a couple of those here in the past and they give you breaks. One was you had to keep your lips on the car.

They've had those here in the past, as well. A few of them were a group of people (I think 6) had to live in a car during our state fair. This was several years ago and our state fair used to last 17 days.
I think the winner in that one was the only one left after about 15 days....
I couldn't do it...I don't need a car that bad and I certainly have other obligations that are not worth putting them (my obligations...namely family) in jeopardy.
If I was single...I might go for it.

If you can believe this, there is something called
"Stuck on a Truck @ Toad Suck"...

With my luck it would come down to me and someone else and I'd sneeze and put my hand on my nose or something stupid like that. Years ago there was one in a nearby town and a woman kept shooting her husband in the face with a water gun to keep him awake.
