Re: The New Joke Thread

And now for something completely different....

Russians have a different outlook on fun and adventure than most of the world. For example, putting tank tracks on a British Bently sedan, or even an American Jeep Wrangler. But what happens when you take those vehicles out into the Russian countryside - in the snow? Have a look!


For the impatient:

F/F to 1:30 mark to skip the sponser/advert. Also, if you don't understand Russian you might want to f/f through some of the spoken/description parts.

F/F and watch mins 16:00 through 17:00 to get straight to those vehicles out in the snow at high-speed play in the open countryside.

F/F to 24:32 The Jeep Wrangler atacking at speed uphill on a ski slope.

I bet you'll rewind for close up static visuals of the unique ground gear! And yes, the Bentley was an original street-legal auto before they modified it to become the Ultratank. Even better, they actually drive the Jeep in its street-legal configuration early in the vid before simply removing the wheels and then bolting on the tank treads. Cool, or what?

Hope you enjoy the cross-cultural experience!

Well he is transforming linearly but it’s hard to predict what he will become without knowing the Eigenvalue.

Re: The New Joke Thread

You know, I get an email informing there are new posts on the joke thread, I eagerly tune in to get a dose of humor, only to be assisted by PAGES of extremely dry math jokes.....

Thanks a lot, Beakers

Re: The New Joke Thread

Mrs Descartes little boy Rene was at a birthday party.

Not any old Saturday afternoon birthday party... the birthday boy had been born in the small hours of the morning and that is when they were going to start partying.

Bruce arrived fairly late, about 2330, and was unaware of the plan...

A bit peckish he wandered over to the table with the tucker on it and started to bog in... much to everyone's horror.

Rene sidled up alongside Bruce and passed him a note....

'I think they're for 1 AM'.......
