OK, so this has got to be one of the goofiest things I’ve seen in a while…
Behold: The Treadmill Bike!

Video of this beast in action…
This $600 car is strictly powered by human motion. A great idea, a goofy reality.

I was just "ghostriding some forums" when I came across this hilarious post on Left Lane News. It’s a post about Hyphy, and how it’s a dangerous craze sweeping the nation… It links to, like, 5 YouTube Hyphy videos. The funniest thing are the comments. These people actually are convinced this is widespread… instead of a veritable handful of videos filmed in Bay Area High School parking lots. They’re all like… "this trend is so stupid!" Well, duh, they (as in Hyphy participators themselves) only refer to hyphy gatherings as "going stupid" and "riding the short bus." I was gonna tell them that most of them knew nothing about hip hop, and needed to shut up, but then decided it wasn’t worth it.
Their first mistake was probably linking to a Canadian news article. Their second was not reading the hyphy wikipedia entry. Guys, it’s called "Ghostriding the whip." Get it right or get it together.
Horrible graphics to represent a wonderful process. Malaysian company, LMG, has figured out a way to break hydrogen and oxygen from water using waste aluminium metal and sodium hydroxide. BMW and Mazda have "tried"… leave it to the Malays.
So, apparently info has been leaked suggesting that the government is involved in top secret plans to build a superhighway from Mexico to Canada, bisecting the US, as a means to bolster a struggling NAFTA. This 4,000 mile 10 lane highway will cost upwards of 184 BILLION dollars [our dollars, by the way...ninjas in Mexica ain't got no money son!], and include space for new rail lines. And heads thought illegal imigration from the south and traffickin from the north were bad now… peep more here from Raymond Learsy.
*caution: conspiracy theory to follow* How the hell can our government be building bigger, longer roads, encouraging more driving? Thats 184 billion dollars that could go towards some real ninja ish, like transporters or cold fusion or something. Oh, and multiply the 184 billion by at least 3, cuz all us Boston heads know how government funded projects get budgeted. Ginormous Dig anyone?

Duetschland yet again comes through with another tight whip.AA This is the Loremo AG, a car that is going to make its debut at the upcoming auto show in Geneva, and due to be on sale in Europe as a 2009 model.AA Using no fancy hybrid or fuel cell drivetrains, this stylish little bugger gets an impressive 157mpg or 87mpg depending on which model you buy, the LS or the GT.AA With a starting price of just 11,000 euros, you’ll get impressive aerodynamics, an incredibly low curb weight (under 1000 lbs), and a tiny two or three cylinder diesel engine.
I had been thinking of coppin’ a M-1 Abrams tank to put all those SUV-driving soccer mom’s and rappers in their place and show them who’s the realest ninja of them all, but now I don’t know, a Loremo AG would look real tiiiiiiight rollin on some 24′s.AA
The best of both worlds, the Camino, may have flopped, but since when has a flop stopped a ninja at heart? This dude turned his Mercedes-Benz 450SEL into a crazy El Camino / Benz love-child monster-beast!
but check out the new Segway Centaur, a four-wheeled version of the gyroscope-powered beast.
This thing looks ill! Check out the video.
