The lack of regular posting is due to the MOUNTAIN of stuff I have to do. I'm in the midst of three yard projects that I'm trying to get done before nasty weather settles in, and I'm also trying to build my Daughter a piece of furniture she's been wanting for Christmas. Posting will be hit and miss for a good while - until I get caught up.
I came in to look something up on line, and stumbled across a story that made me laugh, as much as I tried not too..
Ever seen or heard of a Bugatti Veyron?
Nice car, huh? It just so happens that, in addition to looking way cool, the Bugatti Veyron is the fastest production sports car on the planet. We're talking 16 cylinders and four turbochargers. When tested, it does 0-60 in 2.5 seconds and can reach a top speed in excess of 250 mph! This is a very rare, very high performance vehicle - that will set you back about $2 million, if you can even get your hands on one.
Here's what one looks like when you get distracted looking at a bird flying by, drop your cell phone, and plow it into a saltwater marsh outside Galveston:
I've never known anyone with the amount of cash it takes to get into one of these cars. However, the general douchiness of every high dollar sports car owner that I ever have known, makes me completely comfortable making fun of this guy.
If you've got the time, check out this video of someone test driving a Veyron - its bad assed.
