What a waste: $250,000.00 Ferrari Modena doing a pole dance

October 28, 2008

A young Australian man got a little excited and wrecked his quarter of a million dollar Ferrari today.  Hard to believe but both men walked away from the wreckage.  The Ferrari Modena was 5 yrs. old, so I guess they got their money’s worth.  Both men were sent to the hospital but it is believed they will make full recoveries.

China uses an effective speed bump to slow down traffic *coughs*people trying to defect*coughs*

August 27, 2008

Authorities in the ShanXi province of China apparently had enough of speeders.  So, they erected these 100 ft. long sections of concrete.  Standing 2 ft. high, they’re curved to maintain a constant slow speed.  Why is it when I look at them all I think of is how fast could I drive a car through there and end up on the other side in relatively good shape?  Also, it’s not my car.

Detroit Houses Cheaper than Cars–UAW labels all houses as “scabs” and automatically demands a pay raise.

June 3, 2008

Cheap houses and unlicensed handguns at record levels in Detroit. Thanks to our friends at Students for a Free Economy (SFE) who not only provided the link, but also wrote the best headline. “Homeless and living in your car? Cheaper alternatives are here!”

Let’s hope that Jennifer Granholm and the state Dems can tax us out of this.

If only there was a solution for both of these problems…..
