Amphibious Estima?

Sometimes people get some crazy and wild ideas.  Like when people drive a Prius and think that they automatically become an environmentalist or when people think that skinny jeans and woman’s clothes look good on guys.  Yeah, people are out there.  But at least those people don’t think their cars can drive on water.


This is a Previa in Ireland (not sure if it is a Previa, Estima, or Lucida in Ireland) whose owner thought that he/she could drive on the water to get to work faster.  Well that clearly did not work out so well for them.  I know the Japanese are clever, but I do not think they have mass produced a van that doubles are boat, yet.  Maybe in a couple years.  With the way the glaciers are melting an amphibious soccer van might not be a bad idea.  If that happens I hope it’s as cool as Waterworld was, with Kevin Cosnter and his webbed feet.  I wonder if Dennis Hopper will be the badass for real.  Hopefully he’ll have the freaky eyeball thing he had in the movie.

it floats?

Crazy kids and their music.

you don't say...

That lady is just cruising along, like she doesn’t really care.  This might happen so much in Ireland that people are now numb to floating vehicles.  Could be…

    I think I can drive a prius and be an envrionmentalist because technically you are aiding the environment with your car purchase.

    I don’t consider a person an environmentalist because they have a hybrid. They need to be doing a lot more than that to be considered an environmentalist. Hell, I get 33 mpg highway, does that makes me close to an environmentalist, no.
    The mercury mining that is needed to make the batteries for the prius is a environmental hazard, but no one talks about that.

    Any one envrionmentally friendly act by a person aids our eco-system. I would rather someone buy a hybrid and call themself a hybrid than a useless Ford truck.

    Envrionmentalist- “someone who works to protect the environment from destruction or pollution”.- Princeton.Edu

    Buying a hybrid is working towards a better cause. In addition, I agree that the batteries for hybrids are in effect counterproductive, but at least the car itself does not destruct our environment as badly as a Ford.
