Strategic parking lots should be used in front of banks and other buildings containing priceless materials. That way any robbers would take so long trying to escape in their getaway vehicles that they would be caught in no time.

If it were up to me I'd take out the stupid sexist comment at the end, but the video itself with that music is hilarious. :P

I have an idea for an experiment in space. I don't know where to post it, so why not here. (this experiment is completely theoretical and might not be followed though for a long time) We should send a kid that's just starting puberty into microgravity and see the effects of this era of growth on the human body in weightlessness. It could be considered a bit pointless as most astronauts on long space trips would be adults, but imagine sending kids to Mars with adults. It's just an idea and we should probably start on primates.

Hornblower, that does seem like an interesting experiment! I wonder what effects micro gravity would have on human growth in general along with the hormonal changes associated with puberty.

the problem is, who will agree to that?
you cant just send kids and ruin their body for the rest of thier life. there is big risk.
and there is rights that will not allow it...

Like Hornblower, said, we may be able to utilize primates for experiments like this.

Interesting. Meanwhile, here are some more images of Jupiter:

On a somewhat related note to Watsisname's parking video,

These are times when a flying car would really come in handy. Then again, I'm not sure airborne parking lots would be any easier to navigate...

If anything, these videos are compelling evidence for why we should not have flying cars.
