Jet Engine School Bus Indy Boys Ridiculous

The folks over at Indy Boys, Inc. cook up some fantastic and ridiculous hot rod, er, stuff.  For example, they have the uber fast port o let.  You know, the transportable crapper.  But I prefer the 42,000 horsepower School Time school bus.  That’s thanks to the GE J-79 jet engine that they grabbed out of a F4 Phantom.  So what if it burns 150 gallons of fuel in a 1/4 mile.  It’s the best way to go 370 mph in a school bus!

The timing on finding this product seriously could not have been better.  I have had two stud finders and honestly, they are both terrible.  I have been completely disappointed in their prediction rates.  The funny thing about CH Hanson’s Stud4Sure Stud Finder is that it is utterly simple – and works well.

X-47B Stealth Drone Aircraft

Stealth drones incite absolute fear into the enemy.  Honestly, if I were an enemy combatant, I would hate drones.  They are quiet, deadly, and unrelenting.  Think terminator in the sky.  In any case, Northrop Grumman recently announced the X-47B.  What’s so special about he X-47B?  Well, it can be launched from aircraft carriers, can refuel … Continue reading
