Hmmm, the Bog of Eternal Stench has already seen an epic battle (of sorts).

But I'd still avoid it!

I don't know how the story ends...
But I do know what happens next.

A greasy hotel kitchen with dozens of fly strips hanging from the ceiling.  :o (Jump up on a table to kick the bad guy, and.... 'Oh my god! What have I got in my hair? Ewww!')

HAHA! Shouldn't be a problem, you just need to start swinging the strips around as improvised weapons.

Fly Strip, - Damage, 1-3/20 E/T, FRG, HOK, IMP, SLA  :P

It'll be most effective against Robin Williams or the Werewolf.
Work done by an officer's doppleganger in a parallel universe cannot be claimed as overtime.

Dude, that is just evil.
Don't follow your passion.  Take it with you.

A Lamaze class.

On a New York garbage barge

And a vehicle not to be used in any chase scenes....

Though it might be fun to have a chase scene on, rather than with....

The NASA Crawler-Transporter (used to move the Space Shuttles to their launch sites) may also fall in that category.


Another view that shows the scale so much better (note the miniature people by the tracks)


There's a NASA video I saw a while back that shows this thing in action and it was featured in an episode of Dirty Jobs recently.  Beware, this thing can really book with a top speed of 1km/h (the crawler, not the shuttle).

Yeah, the Bagger 288 that I had a picture for is the only vehicle larger than the Crawler Transporter. 240 m long and 96 m tall. On the other hand the Bagger moves at a whopping 10 meters a minute! I think that the Bagger and the crawler shared a manufacturer in common.

Big suckers!
