Time To Burninate!: Now You Can Own One Of Those 7-Foot, Fire-Breathing Dragon R/C Planes (For $60,000)
Remember Rick Hamel's 'Mythical Beast' R/C fire-breathing jet-powered dragon plane (links to original article with pics and videos)? Well now you can buy one from (who else?) Hammacher Schlemmer for $60,000. Or you could spend that money on two new cars, because SPOILER: that dragon isn't going to get you to the grocery store and back. It probably could land me in jail on multiple counts of arson though.
Prosecutor: Geekologie Writer, did you have anything to do with the fire-breathing dragon plane that set fire to those buildings?
Me: I don't know what you're talking about.
Prosecutor: Let it be noted that the GW has the antennae of a remote controller protruding from his anus.
Me: Stop looking at my butt.
Prosecutor: How do you explain the controller, GW?
Me: Aliens put it there -- they put all kinds of shit up there. I like it, it feels good.
Judge: Wait, where'd my gavel go?
Thanks to LupusYonderboy, who has ridden on the back of a real dragon before and said it's every bit as exhilarating as you've imagined in your wildest fantasies (but not the ones about you banging merpeople).
