Crazy Stuff

Hubby has been using his time off for, um, some serious productivity.


One of his pastimes lately has been watching the antics of this guy, out of Canada. He's got an entire YouTube channel, and does some crazy stuff. I can't recommend much of it; I've seen a few clips with poor language, but the scary part is that Hubby is feeling... inspired.

Watch it again, and tell me if there's anyone in the driver's seat. Hubby thinks that it's rigged for the, uh, passengers, to be operating it.

I sorely wanted to show you Hubby's favorite plan, but unfortunately the 'cameramen' for those clips have really bad language, and I don't think you can strip the audio from YouTube clips (can you?). The guy chopped an 80s pontiac right behind the front seats, and made a "3 wheel half car"... Two front wheels, the engine, dash, and front windows.. and then nothing. No backseat, trunk, or rear wheels. He mounted a third wheel on a spring right between the front seats (well, he removed the passenger seat. No takers, I bet.), and this thing is crazy. Hubby wants to turn my old Toyota Celica into one! *gulp* When he hits the brakes, the thing tips forward to it's front bumper. When he reverses quickly, it does the same, with the rear wheel way up in the air before it comes bouncing down. It is the weirdest thing to watch...

Thank God that when Hubby has time on his hands, he lacks $$ right? :)

That is too funny...I think our husbands would get along very well. :)

My husband (a second generation rev head!) watched a documentry called "Dust to Glory" which I highly recommend. It is about an off road race down in Mexico which is amazing. The thing that struck me was the number of fathers and sons (even GRANDFATHERS, fathers and sons!) doing this tough race together and the values they passed down and relationships they built. After watching that doco, I don't get QUITE as nervous about the fact that Beloved sits our 15 month old up to watch 4WD clips on you-tube with him when bubba is a little grumpy - and it cheers him (them both actually!) up every time!

TasJess, that's too funny about 4wd clips cheering up your little one! Occasionally Hubby will do the same with Organique (she's almost 16 months), but I haven't noticed whether or not she "likes" it. Thanks for the doco recommend.
