I suspect the machines move very fast in Ireland where we all know every eats nothing but cabbage soup!!!!

- because stereo types are never wrong... LOL /sarcasm

Videos of the aforementioned machines walking.

Big deal. Whenever I eat Mexican food, two hours later I am powered by a (potential )gust of wind, to go toward the bathroom.

That's the coolest thing I've seen all week.

I'd love to see one of these in action.

Great concept! Could this guy invent a lawnmower that'll cut the grass as I fart.
2002-12-06 12:21:42 PM  
It's only a matter of time before these creatures black out the sun and take over our world.
2002-12-06 12:21:46 PM  
Mashuren: There is a link on the page that has little video clips of them in motion.

Where is my flying car that they keep promising???
2002-12-06 12:27:04 PM  
Glad these guys are using what I assume to be their rather impressive intelligence doing something that will benefit man in some way.

Ikea & NASA merge - Dutch coast terrorized by tastful lawn furniture.
2002-12-06 12:33:00 PM  
That blows.
2002-12-06 12:33:45 PM  
Evolution of machines is an affront to God. It is obvious that these were the creation of a higher being.

2002-12-06 12:37:42 PM  
What BS!! We all know that there is no such thing as evolution and that God created these machines.

The evolution of bizarre machines that walk when powered by gusts of wind

Sounds like OJ to me. He is a bizarre (killing) machine that walked when Johnny Cockring spewed enough hot wind.

P.S. Anyone seen SLAYERSWINE lately? WTF?
2002-12-06 12:41:53 PM  
That is farking cool. Really farking cool.
2002-12-06 12:45:52 PM  
Once in awhile, we do God one better...

What? You think God wants retarded children :)
2002-12-06 12:49:50 PM  
Is this the thing that tried to kill Jennifer Anustoungue?
2002-12-06 12:51:48 PM  
2002-12-06 12:58:41 PM  
Looks like something you can make at
2002-12-06 01:00:19 PM  
Bump SLAYERSWINE was banned.
2002-12-06 01:03:33 PM  
takes performance art to a new level....

an art show that can take itself on the road.
2002-12-06 01:07:44 PM  
Bizarre, but cool.
2002-12-06 01:08:35 PM  
Those look like Sodaplay machines.
2002-12-06 01:09:57 PM  
"...In the meantime, he is working on ways to keep them moving even after the wind dies down.

It's not art, it's perpetual motion!

DoctorCal - he was banned? what happend??
2002-12-06 01:24:03 PM  
That has to be just about the coolest thing I've seen in the last 15 minutes.

I want one with a bucket seat on top.
2002-12-06 01:32:34 PM  
Bump...Slaerswine is the king of Swaziland.
2002-12-06 01:33:14 PM  
Apparently SLAYERSWINE said something about Anne Coulter that went out of bounds. Or was enough to be the straw that broke the camel's back. I only sorta got the after details. I'm sure if you ask in the 4m, you can get more detail.
2002-12-06 01:51:58 PM  
Ah. I knew he'd been kicked before, but always came back... sad times.
2002-12-06 02:11:34 PM  
How could you say anything about Anne Coulter that goes out of bounds? Everything she says is OOB in the first ten places.

There's no limit to the disgust I have for that skank, so I'm probably not the best judge.
2002-12-06 02:15:27 PM

a website that you can build creatures much like this.
2002-12-06 02:33:18 PM  
VERY much like this... I wonder if he had something to do with sodaplay or even the other way around. The article said he wrote programs.
2002-12-06 03:08:17 PM  
Must ---- not ---- editorialize -----

Oh hell, you know, take a look at the Winona Rider community service suggestions thread, and try to figure out what exactly somebody would have to say about an adult female public figure to get banned.
2002-12-06 03:59:45 PM  
he's probably still lurkin w/ a different nick.
2002-12-06 04:40:05 PM  
Dllmn: He'd have to be more l33t than I. Fark banned me for a while, and NO new account would work on my PC. Drew is godlike in his wrath. :)

I would think that all you'd have to do is run winipcfg and renew your IP address, then sign up for a new account.

Nope. Your MAC addy gets screened.
