On season 16 episode 5 of Top Gear UK Jeremy Clarkson (Jezza), Richard Hammond (Hamster), and James May (Captain Slow) decided to tackle the big problem that England faces now more often than never. I am talking of course of the very minuscule amount of snow they receive. In early February 2009 the snow ranged from 3.9 inches to 7.9 inches, which is nothing compared to what happens here in Canada or the US. From watching the news, I was able to understand that they have not invested enough money in snow removal. I can understand that, however when it happens two years in a row, and causes high financial losses, and travel disruptions can’t they justify it? It’s not only a matter of money, they probably are not trained well for this type of job. Here in Montreal I actually stand and watch the snow removal team, because to me it’s so interesting, they have it down to a science.
I’m glad to have seen this episode of Top Gear because it’s always interesting to see that others have a similar viewpoint on a situation. The lads converted a combine harvester into a snow plow. For the most part it did an excellent job in my opinion. The manufacturers could easily create a more reliable set of modifications (which would probably not cost much in research and development) which lets the harvesters double as snow plows. I found it really interesting that since these harvesters are not being used in the winter, it’s a great win/win situation. This means farmers can either rent out their harvesters or plow during the winter to make extra money (Every documentary or news piece I’ve seen including farmers always says how they struggle to not go bankrupt) and the government does not have to spend too much money on a solution. Why did it take a TV show to bring the concept to light instead of the government/BAA? Finally let me just say that it wouldn’t be Top Gear if they didn’t add some other bells and whistles and made themselves look like bumbling idiots. I love their humor, and while others just don’t get it, that makes it all the more funnier.
Watch the episode below:
I love a good laugh, and since I have been debating recently how Blackberries suck (phones, not the fruit the fruit is amazing) with many people, I thought this picture would be really funny. I found this picture on my friend Kareem’s Facebook wall photos. I told him that I would be submitting it online, so I shared it with reddit.
While I was on the interwebs today I found this really funny commercial. It features Snoop A Loop, L.L. Cool J, Zachary Levi (Chuck), and Wayne Netwon. Enjoy!
Today I was bixing to my friend’s house when I saw this along the way. It was a car that had a DIY (Do it yourself) trailer attached. The trailer is actually half a car that has been closed off in the front with sheet metal. It’s really funny and quirky, but I guess its street legal. Sorry for the crappy picture, click on the image for the full size!
Tonight my friend wanted to surprise our other friend when he woke up to go to work. We made it an arbitrary celebration in his bathroom with balloons and multiple signs. I hope it makes his day, and makes him laugh. I love stuff that makes you laugh because it has no purpose or does not make sense. While every culture has their own funny arbitrary shenanigans, I assure you that Americans trump any other country. That is one of the reasons I love Americans. If you are wondering, yes this arbitrary celebration was planned and executed by an American!
After reading about the iPhone 4 antenna problem, I’m glad I don’t have plans (as of yet) to purchase one. Today I was watching Top Gear (the most watched tv show in the world FYI), when Jeremy Clarkson made fun of the issue while introducing The Stig. I felt it was really funny, and well worth sharing! One of the main reasons I watch Top Gear is because of Mr. Clarkson’s Humor!
Today I had to buy an iPad invisible shield for my friend, I gave him the box and that was that. Afterwards we were talking and he was joking that they suck at spelling. He then showed me what you can see above. It says “If you invisibleSHIELD™ ever gets damaged we will replace it for free for life!” The you should have been your. I will contact ZAGG and let them know about this, hopefully they will get a laugh out of it.
