In America, most teachers are interested in breaking rules, but it does involve an activity that rhymes with tuk.

Until you've been in the back 'seat' of one of those things being driven at about 70 kmph through heavy traffic in downtown Bangkok by a 14 year old boy you haven't lived.

/though you may have died.

I believe in Just Cause 2, you can get a tuk tuk with an artillery cannon in the back.

Sounds like it tuk a long time.

Beat me to it....  If it wasn't for that game, I wouldn't have a clue what a tuk tuk was.

Was it downhill in a hurricane?  Cause that's usually the only way to get a tuk-tuk above 30 kph in my experience.  Maybe they soup them up a bit more in Thailand.

That's alright, bouncing down cobblestone streets in mountainside villages in Guatemala is plenty enough for one lifetime.

Dragging one of those through Chile would suck-suck.

Do Newtonian laws of motion apply in Just Cause 2?

Because my guess is that a tuk-tuk from which a cannon was fired would be airborne longer than that Stanley Steamer that hit a bump during that race in 1904.

The steam car was in the air almost as long as the Wright Brothers' plane at Kitty Hawk.

To tell the truth, I'd like to see that.

George beat travel by tuk-tuk. George travel to Peru on Tookie-Tookie bird! Bird complain about the weight the whole way.

I love that show. (I made up the lines above, though.)

It has some of the best campy-kitschy backgrounds until SpongeBob Squarepants did Tiki.

And it remains perennially funny and amusing as well.

You should see some of the owner-operated tuk-tuks, trucks, buses, etc., that they have in Pakistan and India. They are painted in peasant-style folk art, often with filigee and other ornaments. It is incredible. I saw a bus somewhere painted in that style to advertise a Children's Museum. Perhaps it was online, I don't recall.

You want Tuk-Tuk? 1 dollar.

You can keep your tuk tuk. I will stick with snu snu.
 
2013-11-25 05:50:44 PM
Is that different from Tunak Tunak Tun?

What, is "tuk tuk" what the Twelfth Doctor is going to call the TARDIS?

Just Cause 2 followed the 80's action movie laws of physics

(( Apparent developer quote: "This is the laws of physics on drugs" ))

Game runs on rule of cool

Based on my time playing the game, physics is comprised of feeble suggestions rather than laws.

But it's a lot of fun!
