If this flashmob-dance “Do Re Mi” in Belgium doesn’t make you at least smile, you have no soul (and I don’t mean in the James Brown sense).

The Spartan V has 170hp (from a Ducati bike engine) and weighs 660 pounds. That’s just insane — a Lotus Elise, pretty much the lightest car you could otherwise buy, weighs about 3 times as much and only has a couple dozen more horsepower. The car’s Aussie makers say it does 0-60 in under 3 seconds. It’s a track-only car, but I can hold out hope that they’ll get around to making a street-legal version sometime.
Argh! Or should I say, arrrrrrrgh! Here I be, almost forgettin’ what be the most glorious Internet holiday o’ the whole bleedin’ year, International Talk Like A Pirate Day!
So here be a video for all ya scallywags, with a Formula 1 race driver taking his lovely wench out for a wee drive on a track, in a Honda Civic (it’ll be startin’ to get good around the 2:00 mark). They both be Italians, but you’ll be needin’ no translation. Why be this a pirate video, you lubbers might ask? Because the Civic be a Type-R, o’ course! (via Miss C, pic via Costumzee)
The erratic but sometimes useful HuffPost has a semi-interesting list of 13 Books Nobody’s Read But Say They Have. Here’s the list if you don’t want to view the slideshow:
1. The Canterbury Tales
2. Democracy in America
4. A Christmas Carol
5. The Satanic verses
7. A Brief History of Time
8. Infinite Jest
9. The Name of the Rose
10. Remembrance Of Things Past
11. Don Quixote
12. As I Lay Dying
13. War and Peace
I’ve actually read 3 of them, and started but given up on another 3. Maybe I’ll give a prize or something to anyone who guesses them all correctly. Hint: The one pictured isn’t in either category, really. I did read the exact Classics Illustrated version pictured, but never even tried to read the real “Moby-Dick.”
(via Miss C, who gave me the idea to list them all and spare you the slideshow if you hate them like I do)
