    ...Nah. Let's just blast across the flood! No problem with a 450 traversing foot-deep water! To hell with concerns about short-circuiting the third rail, just blast across it at 70mph! :D :D :D :D :D

    - I do not accept liability for any incidents of this nature. Especially where the inevitable loss of life is concerned.

    I saw that clip about a year ago and was amazed. Glad you resurrected it to my memory.
