    Default Zany OTT Austrian motorhome . . . possibly worth wasting time on

    Glamping!? You haven't seen glamping until you check out what $3 million will buy in goofy European RV design.

    If you have nothing better to do, go to the website:

    http://www.marchi-mobile.com

    and troll around to see the pictures of how they'll spend your money. (The article specifically said it can be sold and shipped to the U.S. )

    This reminds me of a horrible movie from the 1970s called "The Big Bus." It was one of the first disaster exploitation movies, pre-dating the "Airplane" movies by several years. Lots of tongue in cheek humor.

    Here's the scene where they load the radioactive fuel into the bus's reactor



    Here the bus is revealed for the first time

    Good catch. I personally forgot all about The Big Bus three decades ago.

    I am surprised that the vehicle passes pedestrian impact regs with that front-end.

    It sure is an interesting bug.
