Conspicious Consumption Equals Cool

Didn't make it to the lake today. Tomorrow for sure. To make it up and scratch that water itch I present Unlimited Hydroplanes. 3000 horsepower. 200 MPH on the water. 4 gallons of jet fuel per minute. Carbon fiber and gobs of unobtanium. Stir together with drivers who make brass clicking sounds when they walk and you've got a black hole of Awesome.

Go ahead, try to tell me that Fighter Pilots are crazy and harbor a death wish.

I wonder if their sponsors could be charged with assisted suicide?

When you throw in the possibility of drowning on top of being killed in a crash it does give crazy a whole new definition. Still, how crazy do you have to be to strap on a fighter trolling around looking for dive bomb targets and inviting bad people to shoot high explosive telephone poles at you? Either way you've both got me beat in the awesome category.

It was twenty years ago that C&D did a piece on Miss Budweiser, but the title of the article has stuck with me ever since: "Visibility Limited, Hydroplane Unlimited: If the pants fit, wet them." :D

That's good Tam. I'm going to have to find a way to steal that.
