Philbb: whatshisname: Apos: KILL IT WITH FIRE!Aren't Saguaro cactii protected from that sort of ass-hattery?Yes. As awesome as this device is, torching a Saguaro should land him, and anyone who helped him, in PMITA prison. After which we can only hope that he will be pounded in the ass by a saguaro.
doglover: That's not a flamethrower, that's a propane torch.Put one of these on your chair, dude.

Lsherm: CruiserTwelve: Good to see American ingenuity being used for the benefit of mankind.He's a machinist that builds custom wheelchairs for customers. His first wheelchair was for his brother who had Parkinson's, but he died before the chair was completed.As for the chair in the article, that's an amputee sitting it in (right leg below the knee is fake). I think it was one of their special projects for Burning Man, an off-road wheelchair with what's essentially a flame gun.No one is using that as their primary means of handicapped transportation. Why would they?
