May God Have Mercy on Us All

I saw this idling outside of an apartment complex this morning. I was just finishing up the last 5 minutes of my run, and I sprinted home, praying that I could grab my camera and get back in time to take a picture of this monstrosity.

Relief washed over me when I saw that it was still there, parked in all its airbrushed majesty.







I admire the commitment to aesthetics. Those wings look like they negatively alter the van's aerodynamics, not to mention screw you over in parking garages. I wonder who owns this thing? What are his hobbies? Does the van have a grape soda dispenser in the console? How badass would it be if the guy dressed up like Grimace from McDonald's and drove around passing out candy on Halloween? Or not on Halloween to be even creepier...

Who could possibly understand the complexities of the wing? Demented aerodynamic genius? Someone who spends time designing van wings in between calculating neutron densities for Japan's nuclear weapons program?

The samurai theme is kinda cool and also dragged into our era by the backup camera just above the ronin's head.

Very, very excellent ride. Buy it.

the same person that designed the fly ride must have designed the performance counter library under solaris. neither one makes sense.
