Oh, the fun things a man can build with $10,000! "Some folks like to take their time on the can. Not Paul Stender. When the 43-year-old former pit mechanic feels the need for speed, he straps himself into his jet-engine-equipped toilet and roars off, trailing flame."

Yep, I'm starting the new year in a silly mood...
Happy New Year, everyone!

Roaring and trailing flame sounds like an outhouse behind a restaurant in Tijuana.

But wait, you can't even take a crap in his toilet?

I'm sorry, that's just ridiculous to build a jet powered crapper that you can't crap in.

Still funny though, nice one Miss Lynnster.

And they link to the jet powered barstool which is an incredibly practical mode of transport.

Roaring and trailing flame sounds like oh, about 1 out of 3 mefi threads.

I was disappointed when I discovered it isn't fueled by what you might hope a jet outhouse would be fueled by.

I just love the fancy Photoshopped motion lines on that barstool photo...

Well, I imagine that you CAN do your dirty, sinful business in the jet-loo...you just can't necessarily *flush* it in the proper sense.

Frylock already tried this. He'll just end up with a body made entirely of eyeballs.
