Jet bike (not-yet Darwin Award)

I’ve been bike commuting– sort of. Riding to the local T-stop and taking the subway the rest of the way to work. It makes for a nice commute, other than the times I’ve gotten stuck in the rain.

Here’s a crazy inventor who decided to strap a jet engine onto his bicycle. I guess he doesn’t realize that you could buy a motorcycle. (Even more crazy, it doesn’t look like he made any modifications to the brakes– the old-school side-pull kind, not even mountain-bike disc brakes.)
