    You know how, if you're sailing around the Caribbean and you pick up a coin with a skull on the "heads" side, your ship looks a bit messy with holes in the sails and smoke coming out of odd places? Well, if you're driving around town and you find a similar coin in your loose change, your car will probably end up looking like the Rat Rod. And you probably don't want to see the Forans at night as they may have lost some weight...

    I also ran across this the other day, I am more impressed with the 3D printed model than the dressed up scissor lift.

    This reminds me of the time in 1983 an American nuclear aircraft carrier was heading into the Oakland Naval Base in San Francisco Bay. It was the USS Enterprise.

    So the Captain is below decks giving interviews to reporters while the harbor master was guiding the ship in when it got stuck in the mud. I happened to be working on the waterfront and got a great view of the action. They brought out 5 or so tugs, waited for high tide, and then got the 3,500 crew to stand on one side of the deck while the tugs pushed. They did get it unstuck but that Captain's career was over.
