I think my car would piss itself if this thing was coming toward it...

From Salon:

"For a base price of $225,000 -- nearly twice the Hummer H1 wagon's base price of $117,508 -- consumers can get a basic version of the 10-foot-tall Bad Boy that can drive through five feet of water, climb a 60-degree grade, tow six tons and keep rolling even with a quarter-sized hole in the tire's sidewall.

The price goes up from there, depending on options. Drivers can get infrared cameras that peer through darkness. The flat-nosed cab can be bulletproof, and house a mini-safe behind three leather seats. The dash can include a satellite phone, a two-way radio and a global-positioning system -- all alongside DVD, MP3 and CD players and a flip-out LCD screen.

For $750,000, buyers can get the fully loaded "NBC" version that can, Ayres said, detect and block out fallout from nuclear, biological and chemical weapons by over-pressurizing the cab with filtered, clean air much like an aircraft."

Damn. Since this this is called the "Bad Boy," all my Hummers Are For Dicks bumper stickers will be useless. This would still work OK, though.

Well, I used to drive my dearly departed grandmother-in-laws geo prism with her initials detailed all over it.

That things wasn't scared of nothing.

And yes, it frequently used double negatives.

Best thing about the Geo:

Its horn sounded exactly like the buzzer from the party game Taboo.
