It's All Advertising

I have an illness that makes it impossible to not find parallels between advertising and everything else. This blog is a way for me to express all the weird ways I look at ads and my random new ways of thinking about them. Sometimes it’ll be smart, sometimes it’ll be stupid, and maybe some time it will change your view on everything in the world. But let's be honest. It's all advertising.

If it ain't Crispin, it outta be

"Techmaster" on techeblog posted about a street legal VW bug that somebody apparently welded a giant jet engine onto. The guy, who supposedly has a Stanford PhD in mechanical engineering (who despite the distinction still refers to cars as "rides" *cough cough*), uses a GE Model T58-8F helicopter turboshaft engine converted to jet to make his car push 1350 horsepower(and says it's street legal). but maybe it's legit... riiiiight.

It's got 178 comments as of this writing, and I think it's still pretty new. It's no Brooke Burke/King (hilarity by the way!) but still plenty viral.

Wait...wasn't this a Darwin Award Winner?
