...and I can prove it.

I looked this up and it says that in the city, telephone poles are 125 ft apart. Out here in corn country, they're 300 ft apart. Now, let's say you're driving down thee street and for whatever reason, you lose control. What's the first thing you hit ?....right. Telephone pole.
Here in BFE, you run off the road and you're gonna hit one no matter how far apart they are. .. and if there's not one of those handy, well, you see that lone tree, half a mile off the road in the middle of 1000 acre field ?

You're driving a big metal object and It doesn't matter how hard you try, it's gonna pull you right in.
[ oak tree you're in my way ]

Therefor, logic tells me wood is magnetic.

Trees and phone poles aren't magnetic.

They have a powerful gravitational field they can turn on and off at will.

The solution, I've found, is to not go off the road.

If you need to be off the road, drive a piece of equipment- my backhoe tops out around 15mph, and at that speed can take down most of the trees around here.
It's a bumpy ride, though.

This is why my daily driver is a bulldozer.

At my advanced age, ''wood'' would truly be magic.

If you could give your logical take on the "lone sock" theory, I'd appreciate it Professor.

Are my laundry machines really a secret sock portal??
What is your hypothesis, should I keep glaring at them while loading my laundry, or is that seen as a gesture of provocation?

My vehicles always seemed to prefer ditches. I've never hit any tree or pole, but have gotten stuck in quite a few ditches.

Pro tip-
If you're hard up for cash, and see a clothes dryer free on the side of the road, take it.

They eat socks, but they eat cash a lot more readily.
Fewer people carry cash these days so it's a dying trick, but twenty years ago you'd get fifty bucks cash out of the average side of the road clothes dryer.

Way back when, a friend of mine had some cool grandparents who owned a farm. There were some twisty, turny dirt roads there.Whenever someone was getting in their car to leave, his grandpa would say: "Keep 'er twixt the ditches."
