Well Sir, I generally agree.
However, "O Brother, Where Art Thou" was based on Homer's Odyssey-and if watched with that in mind, can actually be pretty hilarious.
That is all.
As an American who finds this as absurd as you, I request that you not judge me by the company that I keep.
They won't give the mice back as they were "treated badly"- apparently by being passed through a space larger than they.
Yet their fate is undecided-who else bets they'll be euthanized?
Does our friend Lewis Page know about these photos of his boudoir?
Pirates, as he will have you keel hauled if the answer is 'no'.
The Burgman is a 650cc heavy scooter, which in this case has been downgraded to 125cc performance?
Much as I applaud these emergent concepts, and I love motorcycling, this offers a massive sacrifice of performance, money and the issue of trying to find the legendary H2 fillup station.
PS: can one top these things off at a welding supply shop or Airgas(TM) Depot?
NIce one, OT, I know but I actually have a 3-legged cat named Tripod. He's on my lap right now.
Ive heard this little ditty...
My Bonnie looked into a gas tank.
The height of its contents to see.
She lit a small match to assist her.
Oh, bring back my Bonnie to me.
Oh and @ Northern Monkey:
Kinda ironic of you to make fun of all we Americans, where if you'd read the full article prior to posting, you'd see the tank was not the cars, but a portable tank in the cabin-like for a lawnmower. Still incredibly stupid of her- instructions even posted to place all containers on the ground for filling-but read before posting.

Oh yeah? siemens also produces a high-end bovine AI straw filler. That is: it fills breeding straws with diluted bull semen for freezing and administratiion.
I'm a cytometry tech with one of these companies.
Coat? Yes the white one please.
Two words: Queen Bee
Front and rear seem oddly similar to a Buell Blast 500cc-may use off-the shelf components. A shame that the performance is currently that of a 50cc vespa, combined with the price of a full touring bike.
That said, I think this is a great first step, and hope that others will follow with improved performance.
Yes, I'm a biker why do you ask?
How hot can it get in your car, again?
I just hope that when I leave it in the sun/ on the dashboard, that it doesn't MELT!
I'm pretty sure that was used to identify the humanoid figure as a "mole"- an internal spy.
Still made no sense, as the "mole" would seem to be using said avoidance techniques to prevent disseminating inside info.
Strangely, the article makes no mention of how shopping habits compare with the follicular phase.
-Pine quizzed 443 women aged between 18 and 50 about their spending habits. Nearly two-thirds of the 153 participants who were in the luteal phase "admitted they had bought something on an impulse and more than half said they had overspent by more than £25".
As Neil said, a third of the month. We need a graph tracking discretionary expendatures and whether there is a hump (tee hee) around the time of ovulation.
Oh well, my work deals with cattle reproduction, so I can add nothing.
Touch Screens-that's not all!
It gets worse. Other dash photos show the instrument cluster is also an electronic display. How might this affect the range compared to analog gauges?
Glasses... cos' I SEE ALL!
Just minutes ago, I was reading on CNN.com (check it) that Tesla's new electric sedan has been unveiled, and will be selling for $50K (granted, early figures, includes tax credits).
I think however we can assume better than 40mph, for something which passes US impact standards.
Scion is a brand produced by Toyota.
There are multiple models, however, I beleive you are referring to the low- slung jello-cube-on-wheels known as the Scion xB.
Anyway, my vote would be for the '74 Bond Bug. Google it, ya' KNOW ya' wanna.
No visible mirrors and no real rear windscreen. The most exciting thing about this car would be safely backing from one's driveway and changing lanes without sideswipes.
That said, however: a beautiful machine-doubly so if the efficiency and performance is as advertised.
Yeah, concept machines, prototypes, etc.
No camp...No problem.
I dunno, Lester. Perhaps reducing the camp and/or formulaic plot might work.
Somehow we went from:
Holy Backpacks, Batman! It's the Scoutmaster!
<word balloons> BAM! BIFF! KAPOW!</word balloons>
To the award winning awsomeness of Dark Knight.

Strangelovian mad scientist for obvious reasons
I have some idea what the owners had
I have a three-legged cat (brought to me as a stray), who has lost BOTH eyes to glaucoma a few years back. Even he still looks pretty handsome and still manages to get about the place just fine- stairs included.
My sympathies and a raised glass for their recent loss.
Homer- Loser? Loser?!!!
Ahem; a look at his CV:
-10+ year career at nuclear power plant, saved it from meltdown at least twice.
-Still on wife #1, 3 kids.
-Owned security company, shortly thereafter became Springfield police chief.
-Mayor of "Old Springfield".
-Country music singer manager.
-As "Mr. X": underground blogger-before the wretched 'B' word existed.
-Tow truck driver.
-US Naval reservist (the nuclear sub incident can be excused as it was his "first day").
-Plant employee union leader-succeeded in reinstating dental plan.
-Toured with band Smashing Pumpkins.
-Worked with Mel Gibson to improve remake of Mr. Smith Goes to Washington.
-Was blasted into space, and safely returned.
LET'S SEE YOU GUYS BEAT THAT RECORD!
Am I the only one who sees a second camera along the inside hinge near the microphone? That "spot" is not on the original DS.
Glasses, cos' I spy with my all-seeing eyes.
I'm not sure where they're going with this
So, anyone else wanna watch the side impact test videos for this thing?
In all seriousness however, I'm at a loss as to Chrysler's intended market. Recent articles in el Reg detail at least somewhat practical EV's, and suddenly they throw a golf cart cart at us?
There's no indication that this is strictly for EU release, and around here (upstate NY) the only time one could push the speed limit in this thing (not to be confused withe the VW Thing) is an elementary school zone, or tooling around a University campus. And before someone mentions city dwellers, is one expected to run an extension cord out the apt. window all night or use one of the 3 parking garages with power points?
Oh, and apologies for feeding the trolls, but this Yank does distance cycling.
Oi! Is it my imagination, or is the jeep's transmission installed backwards?
Quickly, alert the design team before it's too... oh wait, it's gone to prototype stage.
@ Sebastien Mongrain and AC
Yeah, my thought was the awesome True Lies quote as well.
and AC: You'e right about not rapelling without a wall, however he could deploy by sliding down a "fast rope"-no harness or cabriners needed.
The car is missing something...
Has anyone else noticed the lack of door handles in all photos?
Glasses: cos' I don't need them!
Re: On Reflection
Even as a Yankee, I'd pick: Simon Pegg (surely no introduction needed) and possibly Mackenzie Crook (The Office).
As an aside: Imagine, for the moment: Scotty with phaser set to <KZEEEEEEERT!>
