This is hilarius...video link
Don’t give them any ideas.
Dutch 155 mph superbus.
LOL! This is hilarious. I loved the trash bag strapped to the back of every seat. NASCAR buses. Loved it.
Pretty sad that the Dutch can come up with an electric vehicle that cool, while we make things like the Kurrent and the Volt.
I love the part at 1:22, also, about high-speed Internet.
I’m sure Willie Greene just threw his bong at his poster of Obama out of sheer anger.
“get outta the way. The bus of the future is here”.
I miss Boxcar Willie Green
Onion News Network - Just too funny!
I especially love “In the Know”:
“I’m Julianna McKannis filling in for Clifford Baines, who sawed his fingers off building a birdhouse.”
that is funny!!!!
Now that is something I wouldn’t mind paying for and riding..
Hilarious! I particularly like the plug for the story on internet negotiations: “...following last weeks negotiations with Canada and convincing them to agree to remove the password from their WIFI network...”.
I liked that too. How about first class boarding AC will be turned on. The buses can be retrofitted for $40. I also liked the end remarks about illegals being able to live in the country as long as their feet don’t touch the ground. Tooo funny.
Now, imagine Granny Gump in her 1972 Comet puttering along in the fast lane at 55 mph and overtaken by a super bus doing 155 mph.
In Germany, on the Autobahn, slow traffic is required by law to stay in the right lane. Slow drivers in the fast lane get very expensive tickets and may have their licenses suspended or revoked.
On American Interstates, drivers wander all over the lanes, change lanes abruptly, and generally feel they are entitled to use any lane they want, when they want, without bothering to worry about other drivers. Add a 155 mph super bus to this mix? Are you serious or merely suicidal?
I don’t think you realize that the article is a joke. It is a spoof to Obama wanting high speed rail. There is no Superbus. If I’m wrong in this reply then I do apologize.
Now, into that fish pond dump the proposed [albeit fake] super bus. The vehicle is totally impractical for the most obvious of reasons — exactly why SecTrans Ray LaHood would embrace such stupidity in a NYC minute.
Never assign to malice that which can be explained by sheer incompetence.
I know what you mean about other drivers being arrogant. I have had them literally drive me out of my lane into oncoming traffic, cut me off in the quest to be first, or first to the redlight. Their sense of entitlement is astounding, and frightening. I fully understand the direction in which you were going.
