Freefall 0101

Fun with an open ventilation shaft

Florence doesn't look comfortable.

Much better.

Sam! Look! I found a “Jet Assist Take Off” rocket!

We'll get home a lot faster using this on our truck.

Helix, do you have any idea how dangerous that would be?

No.

Good. Neither do I. Let's strap this baby on!

Think that'll hold?

No. Better use the whole roll of duct tape.

Where did you come up with a great idea like strapping a JATO rocket to the truck, Helix?

I read it in the “Darwin Awards”.

Isn't that the award you have to be dead to win?

Yes. I guess they don't like long acceptance speeches.

Премия Дарвина – шуточная премия за самую нелепую смерть по собственной глупости с учётом отсутствия потомков у погибшего. Присуждается “за избавление своей смертью человечества от ещё одного носителя гена глупости”
Идея такого полёта была проверена “Разрушителями мифов”. Насколько помню, выводы были неоднозначные (Robot Spike)

The fuse is lit!

Hurry, Helix! Get in! Get in!

VOOMPH!

That's 20,000 kg. of thrust. Why aren't we moving?

You need to take off the emergency brake.

Ah. Of course. How silly of me.

Taking the emergency brake off now.

I feel the need.

The need for speed?

No, it's more like the need for clean underwear.

The road seems a lot bumpier at 500 kph.

It gets better further on.

See? I told you it would get better.

Houston, we have liftoff.

RRRRRRRRRRRRRR

Sam, we're flying!

It's okay. I'm almost a pilot and I think this truck has air brakes.

But we told Florence we'd take the bridge over the canyon!

Oooh. Right. If she finds out we used a JATO rocket to jump it instead, we could be in real trouble.

Florence is waking up!

Quick! Smile! Maybe she won't notice anything's wrong!

What an odd dream I'm having.

How are we going to get down?

I don't know. Guess we'd better call for help.

You have contacted Emergency Rescue Services. How may we help you?

Uhm, Hello?

What have you done now, Sam?

You call next time. They're starting to recognize my voice.

Okay, let me see if I've got this straight.

You're in a truck, about 500 meters in the air, with a JATO rocket duct taped to the undercarriage.

Sam, if this was anyone but you, I'd swear this was a prank call.
