…It’s Things Thursday: Things That Might Kill You?

Things That Might Kill YouLooking for a bit of light summer reading?

Then pick up The Complete Manual of Things That Might Kill You: A Guide to Self-Diagnosis for Hypochondriacs.

Filled with symptoms that you probably have right now (or as I like to call them, warning signs) this book will make sure no runny nose goes unchecked, no upset stomach gets ignored, and no headache is experienced without a clear understanding of their direct link to measles, mumps, and/or the plague.

Plus, there are plenty of cute illustrations for the kiddies.

…Saleen’s S5S Raptor looks sinister?

Saleen S5S Raptor

Saleen sure does know how to build ‘em right (he was, after all, the man that managed to make the Saleen S7 a reality) so the prospect of a second supercar form the American manufacturer does get me a little giddy on the inside.

Specs include a supercharged 5.0L V8 producing 650 hp and 630 lb-ft of torque, the ability to run on cellulosic ethanol, 0-60 in 3.2 seconds, 6-speed manual with an optional paddle shifted sequential gearbox, aluminum chassis, and a top speed of over 200 mph.

So what does eternal fastitude like this cost you?

If it makes it to market, just $185,000.

(And yes, in case you were wondering, I did bring you a sneak peak of this car back in November, so never let it be said that DYH doesn’t bring the latest and greatest to the table.)
