That wind-powered walking frame-thing is an amazing piece of design. So how come BMW cars have gone so freakin' ugly??? [Confused]

Hm, the rhinosceros one reminds me of an AT-AT ... :> That or a very large crab.

Curious, although I wonder how you're meant to steer one. The whole wind-powered idea is cool 'n all but I can't be the only one who feels that it would be a lot better if that armour-plated-looking contraption had a diesel engine inside it (oh, or, say, a microfusion reactor), lots of guns and, for great justice, a degree of dimensional transcendentality.

Alright now, that's the last straw, I'm calling the ass taxidermist to tell him to stop making hats in your size RIGHT NOW.
