Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

Re: Bloodhound SSC

There is a version of this as an Urban Myth.

1000 mph would be amazing, cool presentation. I wonder what G Foces he'll feel.

Wait, what kind of mpg will this get?

That would be very cool. I'm only a day's ride from the salt flats. I'd have to ride out to watch that!!

That would be funny if it were not so true. Every one of those guys has been bought and paid for many times over

IIRC, the original Thrust SSC sound-barrier-breaking run was done in the Black Rock desert, out near Gerlach, NV (think Burning Man festival). So it's more like a lunch ride.
