My brother showed me this a bit earlier on ebay and it made me laugh a bit too much.
i'll never finish reading all that, but the idea is very funny indeed. 'here's a picture of me on my my 500bhp lawnmower' - LOL
this is my favourite response...
"being a farmer the only way i can get about is by cow. i also earn my living by selling cows for transportation and of course meat. if i start feeding my cows on your resistors instead of grass i would assume that this would increase the cows speed 1000 times. Given that a regular cow with no resistor can travel around 15mph this would give an upgraded resistor cow a top speed of 15,000mph, thus elliminating the competition for speed of delivery. Now given that a cows shape is not designed for these speeds there would be an enormous build up of air resistance leading to friction around the cows body, in effect cooking it while it travels to its destination. i realise that some animal rights protesters may have a problem with this method of transportation cooking but i'll cross that bridge when i come to it....on my 15,000mph cow. So apart from massive speed gain does this resistor contain some sort of temperature gauge so i can tell when my cow has been cooked on route."
you could eat it whilst riding it.
