I was introduced to The Firesign Theater while in high school, courtesy of a couple of bootleg cassettes given to me by a very hippie AP English teacher.

Without question, Everything You Know is Wrong is their greatest work. It was through their portrayal of Gen. Curtis Goatheart that I was prompted on a journey of exploration during the pre-web era (you know, with libraries?) which led me to the firm belief that Gen. Curtis LeMay was, in fact, insane.

I had no idea until yesterday, however, that a full-length film was produced of it.

It's wacky. It's trippy. It's idiotic and bizarre. And if you have 41 and a half minutes to kill, it's worth the watch. You just might want to strap on your rocket skates and jump into the big hole that leads to the center of the earth.

Very good. I was initially unimpressed. When a-ha started playing I actually laughed out loud.

I'm not usually squeamish.

I can watch videos of people with limbs torn off, guts spilling out onto the ground, decapitated, crushed under the wheels of a truck, blowing their brains out with a shotgun, singing Nicky Manash songs in public etc.

But I can't watch that whole video.

For some reason, concussive head injuries of that nature (eg: where the victim isn't killed) **** with me.

Never underestimate what a couple horsepower can do for you.

(Those blocks are 400lb. ea.)


Can't get the timing mark to work. Just skip to 1:40


Here's another with slo-mo at 0:55

I'd love to know what caused this particular conflagration and explosion.


Money shot begins around 0:50.

This is exactly why LPG conversion vehicles are not allowed in enclosed parking facilities here in Turkey.

In the US, LPG isn't really used as a motor vehicle fuel, although vehicles carrying LPG in storage tanks (such as caravans / RVs, and trucks carrying bulk LPG) are prohibited from driving through highway tunnels.

CNG is quite popular here as a fuel for busses, local delivery trucks, and other fleet vehicles. And so far as I know, it's not widely prohibited anywhere, though various regulatory guidelines suggest not storing or servicing CNG vehicles in enclosed spaces. The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey specifically allows both CNG and LPG (when used as a primary propulsion fuel, not merely when carried as cargo) in all of our tunnels and on the lower level of the GW Bridge (which is partly enclosed), so long as the fuel capacity is less than 150 pounds and certain other requirements are met.

A lot of people convert their gasoline engine vehicles to LPG because of the ridiculously high gas prices over here.
There are several commercially available conversion kits for sale, but workmanship in most cases is shoddy.
Even if it is a top notch system, LPG eventually ruins the engine internals because it does not have the lubricating/cooling properties of gasoline, and more importantly, a lot of idiot mechanics do not have a clue about setting a proper fuel mixture.
(I turned it way down man, you'll have great fuel economy...)

Since LPG is a "gas", we call those LPG guys "gassed and furious"
Tüplü ve öfkeli!
