#558 Red Bull Chariot Race: The Sofa

The mode of competition at the Red Bull Chariot Race is that several teams from universities in the are compete by racing their vehicles around a short course. Each team is made up of two people pushing and one riding. The course is not fair so one team has an advantage (psst, don't tell anyone, the marketing MAs who run came up with this thing probably haven't noticed that problem).

This picture is some unknown team who raced an armchair in the Ithaca Red Bull Chariot Race. More to follow.

#558 Red Bull Car

Naturally, Red Bull brought one of the BMW Minis along. Believe it or not, that Red Bull can serves as an extension to the gas tank. This car could go around the world 20 times without refueling.

#539 We pay nil.

All these signs around the swimming pond at Buttermilk Falls don't say what they mean. What they are trying to say is "We don't pay a dime if you break your neck." That's just find, why would they have to. Still, they are too cheap to just write that. Instead they post warning signs about shallow water and ice (ice when it's 60F outside???).

#537 New York Driver not living here

Dear Geico,

You keep sending letters to some "New York Driver" living here. There are only two German drivers living here, no New York drivers (I assume you are referring to the issuer of the drivers license). So I was hoping to get the letter sent back to you but since you are too cheap to send that letter by First Class Mail, USPS won't return it. I hope you read this and manage to figure out where the New York driver has moved to.

#533 Ground Heater

You probably didn't miss, that Ithaca is a pretty cold place. To make sure that the water supply pipes don't freeze, every winter hundreds of ground heaters are placed at strategic points around town to keep the ground warm.
