Concept BMW

An innovation breaks new ground: car with a flexible outer skin.

The innovation of a flexible outer skin breaks new ground in automotive engineering. This revolutionary solution opens up new design, production and functionality potential. It has a major impact on the interaction between driver and car and enhances it by offering a variety of entirely new options. Some elements of the substructure are moveable.

The driver can move them by means of electro and electro-hydraulic controls. This will also change the shape of the outer skin, which can thus be adapted to suit the current situation, the driver’s requirements and can also enhance the car’s functional range. The most striking example of this is the headlight design. In normal position, when the headlights are not active, i.e. when there is no necessity to illuminate the road, they are hidden under the special fabric cover.

As soon as the driver turns on the lights, the contour of the front end changes.

Flame Meets Desire

FLAME™ by BK® captures the essence of that love and gives it to you. Behold the scent of seduction, with a hint of flame-broiled meat.

By far one of the most disturbing things I have ever seen. This whole Burger King ad campaign is really taking creepy and running with it. I do, however, like this review:
Reviewer: sdfgsdr tfhrtf from drgdrg, TX United States
Title says it all, after using just all 5ml of this tiny tube I became irresistable to the plumper women in the area.
They flocked to me ripping off there clothes, rippling as they did so.

I just wanna big shout out to Burger King, without who america would not be so fat and i would never get laid

God Bless the Burger

Ours 12/08

Yes, it does seem like a repeat of last July, but it luckily was not. Ours is on the last leg of their multi-year tour and decided to pass back through Dallas last night, only 5 months after the last show, before they head home and work on a new album. Everything I wante different about the last show (certain songs played, etc.) was remedied, and they played with another awesome group, Plain Jane Automobile. I would have liked to see more of PJA, but we spent a lot of time driving around trying to find an ATM to get cash to park after getting stuck on 75 due to the worsening weather. Sleet in Texas = dead stop traffic. But damn was that a great show, definitely worth sleeping too little and my ears still ringing.

If I Hadn't Failed Physics in Hign School.....

I would totally do all the needed equations to figure out the wind resistance. From what I can put together:

[Scion xA curb weight: 2380 pounds] x [23 MPH winds from SSW] x [80 MPH car travel speed heading East] = hard as shit to stay in my lane.

There are faults to little cars. :(

Angry Iraqi throws shoes at Bush in Baghdad

The only reason this hasn't happened yet in America is no one wants to go to Guantanamo. This guy just earned being my personal hero.

We're All Gonna Die

In Utah, the Parowan Prophet predicts disaster will prevent Obama from taking office.

"I think that you should hear what my opinion about the Obama election is: that he will not be the next president. I said on my home page in August that if he lost to expect to see the 'riots' that 2 Peter 2:13 tells us about. He didn't lose. But the story is not finished yet. I still think they may begin the riots before Christmas 2008, as I said."

These riots, according to his prophecy, will encourage the "old, hard-line Soviet guard" to seize the moment and rain down nukes on the United States, killing at least 100 million of us.

"Prepare now," Freeborn's letter concluded. "We are downwind from Las Vegas. I hope you can survive."
