The swagger wagon is awesome. Its record for things INSIDE is 5 bikes, 18 wheels, 3 duffel bags, 1 box of parts, and 2 people. With 2 more wheels tied to the roof with course tape because they didn't fit, anywhere.
Anyways, to the ideas. I started talking about traffic, but took a pretty big detour because I don't think that I have talked about my car once in the history of this world and I figured if I did, and used lots of captions, when I google search "swagger wagon", a picture of my car will come up. Instead of this-
|It does have the Toyota logo....|
Face it. Most people don't swim with sharks, because they're afraid of being eaten. Most people don't eat that one type of poisonous fish that is supposed to be delicious that's only poisonous in a certain spot, because they're afraid of being poisoned. And people shouldn't drink decaf coffee, because that's ridiculous.
In order to combat traffic, the act of speeding needs to be feared. Unfortunately, the fear of tickets is not quite enough, as some people just keep racking in those tickets. So in order to fear speeding, therefore keeping speeds constant, therefore fixing traffic, the answer lies in....
Sensored spike strips, randomly hidden along freeways, spaced at random intervals, in random lanes. I'm not talking thousands of strips, just 1 or 2 every 20 miles. When triggered by a certain speed over the limit, POP, crazy slide, lots of sparks, multi car accident, and several people who will never speed again! Hooray for lessons learned!
The great thing about this is that Ambulances, Police, Me, and Edgar Martinez will all have sensors on the bottoms of our cars that will block the signal transmission to the spike strips.
So if you're planning on speeding, you better have one heck of a reason.
And in other news, I made it from Bham-Seattle in record time this weekend!
(ok fine, this is a pretty poor idea)
Here's another idea! I'm sick of all these sports that just are the saaaameeee time after time. Specifically I mean figure skating, bmx, 4 cross, downhill skiing, and hockey. I think a cool sport that someone should invent would somehow incorporate all of those, into one crazy time.
