I saw this intensely stupid demonstration of cluelessness the other morning.
I photographed it so I could have a little rant about one of the things that has mystified me for years.
Why do some guys have to do such dumb things to their vehicles?
The monstrosity in the photo would be good for no task. It has huge wheels to increase clearance for very rough terrain, which by necessity needs to be traversed slowly, and a souped up engine to make it go quickly when it wouldn’t be able to make any corner hardly any faster than walking speed. What we see in the photo above is a deadly combination of modifications that is the product of a tiny brain that probably had a conversation with itself while at a smash up derby.
“Ooooo will ya lookit tha monsta truck!”
“Ooooo it’s so kewel!”
“I’m gunna make me one juss like it!”
There would’ve been no thought of handling characteristics or fuel economy in this age of rising fuel prices and the shrinking of unrenewable energy resources. No thought would’ve gone into the fact that “bull bars” decrease passenger safety in collisions and also endanger pedestrians that are run over.
Here’s a few videos of moronic meatheads and their dumb trucks.
The really sad thing is that they will probably breed, and that brings me to one of my favourite movies, Idiocracy
