So the trip where this olelongrooffan spotted that double decker taxicab proved to be beneficial in spotting some weird ass crap. Not only was that yellow blob spotted, a new kind of church bus was seen by this olelongrooffan and I can’t help but share it with my fellow Hoons. Click on through to see the best alternative use of garbage barrels ever seen.

I guess the riders of this thing will get to the Heavens in a hurry.

    My wife (who’s a pilot) immediately said “IFR qualified bus” when she saw that picture. I thought that was pretty funny.

    Looks like the shuttle program is alive and well after all.

      Terrible shame about NASA’s budget, though.

        I dunno, looks like they’re making the best of finding a way through the cuts.

          NASA has finally decided to give Johnson SFC a shuttle. At least it’s not the short bus…

          • jeepjeff

            Lockheed Martin was working on that, but it got cancelled along with the X-33.

      Do they still compare computing power accommodated in cars to the computing power of a space shuttle? I’m sure somebody did this once in an ad.

    Given that windshield, it’s the perfect vehicle for ghostriding.

    Never mind that they put the engines in upside-down.

      I’ve heard of that happening with ocean racing yachts. Safety rules state that they are required to have an engine (only for emergencies, sealed at the start of the race) but not that it has to be usable. Someone realised that mounting a marine diesel upside-down means better weight distribution.

        I heard a similar story about a racing yacht’s anchor. They’re required to have one in case of an emergency, but one inspector saw an anchor he didn’t trust. He asked the crew to drop it over the side to test it – the anchor floated…

          I know a guy who once used a (real) anchor to overtake the entire fleet in an offshore race. There was no wind and a strong tide going the wrong way, so they attached every spare line they had to the anchor, dropped it in 100m of water, and watched as the rest of the fleet drifted backwards past them.
