...will I ever be able to use it?
No, not quite Wonder Woman's invisible plane, but I've got to admire someone who comes with up a cool idea and actually goes through with what must have been an incredible amount of effort all in the name of art. I wonder how this car would look in the middle of field or just driving down the street... kinda like a rip in space.
While I can accept the general premise and scientific conclusions in the annotated diagram above, I do think that some of the more creative reasons for highway stoppages are missed within its limited scope:
1) Hot coffee accident
2) Text messaging at 120
3) Oral sexcapades
5) Trying to find a playlist on an mp3 player
6) Tilting one's head back to talk into the Bluetooth speaker four inches above one's head
7) Roadkill, or soon-to-be roadkill
8) Air guitar solos inspired by classic rock stations
9) Nickelback song inspires self-immolation
10) Out of reach Cheeto
How podcasts have taken over my car stereo, and why I'm strangely excited about it.
They say that you can find art everywhere. Apparently, since no one has told who "they" are and I'm not "you", I cannot confirm or deny the efficacy of such a statement. Here is, however, a convincing example that those who do not wash their cars are simply reaching out to the art community at large.
I suppose, by logical extension, all of you who wash your car must hate art. You self-righteous carwashing bastards, give the struggling artist a chance.
I pose the aesthetic quandry to you all: is this man's art about dirt, or the absence of dirt? You carwashers had better believe the absence of dirt, because, by this logic, your effort in washing can simply be claimed to be Malevich-inspired suprematism.
I never thought that I'd fear the idea of zipping around like so many characters from 60s sci-fi movies, but does this car look safe to anyone. Don't get me wrong, it's looks ultracool, but will this last five minutes on roads with ice, snow, or in temperatures of -20? Doesn't it look like one could just kick the axles right off this thing?
I certainly admire that the "all-electric three-wheeled two-seater" will apparently be ready in October '09 for a relatively decent price point of $25000-$45000 and "get the equivalent of 200 mpg and go 100 miles on a charge."
I really do admire the effort, but unless I'm driving this thing on the Salt Flats I'm not feeling too confident.
I've never been one of those people who was hell bent on buying a Vespa and listening to The Jam (even in a Modern World), but this upcoming hybrid scooter from Piaggio looks wicked cool. 141 MPG, 0-60mph in 5 seconds, the power of a 250cc engine, and a dual front tire for added stability.
I don't care what anyone says, I need Xzibit to pimp my ride out to look like this... okay... if he wants to add a few plasma screens, spinners, and turntables that's cool too.
