Port-O-Jet
image Paul Stender has built a jet-powered outhouse. He calls it the Port-O-Jet. No it doesn't run on natural gas (the obvious joke). But it can reach speeds of 46 mph with a good tailwind. The hoax is that it doesn't actually function as a toilet. Pity. Now if he could make the toilet work, and then outfit it with wireless internet access, it could be the world's first jet-powered iLoo.

Whoa! You failed to mention you could actually enter the thing and drive it. I thought it was remote control at first. chill

Reminds me of the old "Destroylet" camp toilets. You closed it after using, and a jet of flame would render any waste into sterile ashes. There's a new company marketing them at http://www3.sympatico.ca/storburn/products.htm

It was a little scary. But since the jet toilet above already has the fuel, it could probably be adapted easily.

Why did this man do this? It's not very interesting, profitable, and it won't get him the chicks. Someone has issues to work out.
