Ran across this when I was looking at the new Darwin Awards stuff
You could think of government workers like teenagers. You pay them an allowance, but do you get any work out them? They eat the food, put their feet on the furniture and complain loudly whenever they are unhappy.

It'd be fun to build and drive, but I would have picked a different car to do this with.

This car attracts crowds better than any '69 Camaro.

I have a hard time believing this is real. It looks like this thing will deafen the driver – there would have to be SO many decibels in that car that even helmet/earphones would do nothing to stop you from blowing an eardrum as soon as you fire that thing up. The heat that engine makes would just about fry you, too. It has to be a couple of hundred degrees in there when that thing gets going.

The exhaust cowling looks pretty fake, too. There’s a huge split right down the middle on the bottom – that can’t be right.

I don’t know – this looks really cool and I’m sure the fireball is sweet when he lights that thing up, but I’d have to see it in action to believe that’s real.
