Fiamma has announced a retrofit package for the rear-mount bicycle rack that will hold four plasma torpedo units. Release date is July 4, I think....

I'm glad you wrote that Hibby. The Adios Airstream is getting to serious for me.
Will it hold my bikes as well? Will it have a remote that I can actuate from my drivers seat as people annoy me on the road. I'm getting sick of all of the corporate talk on the Adios thread. It makes me feel like I'm back in business school. I need to have some fun here..

Dan,

You think this isn't serious? If you follow me too closely, you'll find out how serious it is.

For the Fiamma rack,, at least for the moment, it's an either/or thing. You can't do bikes and bombs. However, I've requested this as a future upgrade.

I saw the title for the Adios Airstream thread and decided not to look at it. I assumed that it was negative. Unfortunately I seem to be one of the oddballs that has gotten a darn near perfect trailer.

Gene, I have a force field that is impenatrable. Your puny futile attempts would be futile.

Couldn't you just mount the bombs on the bike handlebars? I'm just sayin'

Not for the 50-megaton bomb. Perhaps some of the smaller ones would fit?

I'm going the old fashion way for people behind me. I'm going to sharpen some 3 1/2 inch framing nails at both ends, then weld 3 together in the middle to form and nice jack.

Then fill a compartment under the rear bumper with a remote trap door.

I figure if you blow up that annoying person behind you all you see in your mirrors is a fire ball.

This way I get to see them skid all over the road, fly into the ditch, and flip over and over like in NASCAR.

I know it's rather demented, but everyone love to see the crashes in NASCAR, why not let other drivers enjoy the show too.

Oh yeah. That looks good . Proportional as well. Do you have any inventory yet?

I have a couple questions here:

I'm wondering if I need a third axle to support the higher atomic weight, or will leaving my water tank half full make up for the addition of my nuclear device? What if I switch to a single 20lb LP tank too?

If I put the bomb in my bathroom (I have a rear bath) will it take up ALL of the shower, or will I still be able to sit on it and shower?
Looks like you'll be able to sit on it...
or even...

ride it!

Oh, so we have a Scylla and Charybdis situation?

Well, Greek mythology really doesn't give me the answer, so a few micrograms of dark matter will handle your "force field" quite easily. I thought of using an antimatter gun hidden in the fake tailpipe under the bumper compartment, but dark matter will just do fine.

No one will suspect me since dark matter is, well, dark, so no one will know where it came from. The "physicists" don't know what dark matter is, but there's a lot of it and it must be dangerous.

You can get it at any gas station by pressing the right combination on the keypad; it dispenses through that hose with the green handle. Just fill up a 5 gallon gas can with it and then load it into a herbicide sprayer and have your wife spray it out the rear window of the trailer at the so called "force field". I'd have her wear sunglasses because the fireball will be impressive.

Eric, your combination thermonuclear device/Airstream shows a bold imagination, though I am confused by your style decisions. I can see the influence of Buck Rogers' 1930's movies mixed with Wally's original Airstream design, but somewhere along the way it seems to have been diverted into an alternate universe. That alternate universe may be a suburb where you keep up with the Jones's by having old fashioned weaponry. Particle beams, force fields, and dark matter are the latest in gated community safety and establishing driveway dominance.
