Top Gear Winter Olympics special

[Update: the referenced video is no longer available on Google Video.]

Nerds (flying or otherwise) love Top Gear. Right Neil?

I stumbled across the fact that the fabulous British TV show about cars has some episodes on Google Video. The Top Gear team, led by the ever-manic Jeremy Clarkson, made a special show with a Winter Oympics theme. You can view it directly on this site, below.

I haven’t had time to view the whole episode yet, so I won’t comment on the MANY silly things that they do with cars and ice. But if you scroll through to about the 50th minute, you can see the Top Gear attempt at sending a Mini Cooper (a real one, not the recent BMW version) over a ski jump. With rockets attached.

Here’s a screen grab.

Engineer joke (thanks Lindsay)

As an Engineer (by training if not profession), this tickled me…

An MBA and an Engineer go on a camping trip, set up their tent, and fall asleep.

Some hours later, the Engineer wakes his MBA friend.

“Look at the sky and tell me what you see.”

The MBA replies, “I see millions of stars.”

The Engineer asks, “What does that tell you?”

The MBA ponders for a minute…

“Astronomically speaking, it tells me that there are millions of galaxies and potentially billions of planets.

“Astrologically , it tells me that Saturn is in Leo.

“Time-wise, it appears to be approximately a quarter past three.

“Theologically , it’s evident the Lord is all-powerful and we are too small and insignificant.

“Meteorologically , it seems we will have a beautiful day tomorrow.

“What does it tell YOU?”

The Engineer friend is silent for a moment, and then speaks.

“Practically…it tells me that someone has stolen our tent.”
