I was watching some old diggnation episodes and hear about a guy who is trying to perfect a flying squirrel suit that will allow him to jump out of a plane and fly to the ground, landing without a parachute. Looking for more details, I through some old digg posts talking about the flying dude. That leads me to another site with a second video of the same suit. Turns out to be a Top Gear clip:
A Porsche Cayenne Turbo S driving down a hill vs. flying guy jumping from a helicopter 10,000 ft above said hill, both racing to a finish at the bottom of the hill. You can’t make this stuff up. Keep in mind here that we are talking about a C$157,000 car here, when you watch the video. Insanity, but that is what the Top Gear people seem to do best. I have to admit, I was intrigued by the Porsche SUV – 0-60mph in 4.8 sec would certainly be fun to beat those punk ass kids driving the Mustangs, and 168mph means I could drive Calgary – Edmonton in under an hour, sans cops. Plus, as a bonus, the Porsche sucks gas like there is no tomorrow. Oh, and if you can’t afford the C$157k, there is a low end model for $60,100. It just has speed comparable to standard SUVs. I just can’t see why there aren’t more of these in Calgary, land of the SUV. I mean, people are just desperate to find places to burn their hard earned cash. Perhaps Porsche needs a few well targeted ads around here to get the word out.
