So I am attepmting to make a carpool system for my campus.

Gonna enlist the help of a computer science major.

Currently looking up stats about traffic flow, and campus stats

I have what can be the start of a basic system but I need probably at least 50 addresses to be able to start comparing routes.


easyjet lifted us out of the rugged Sofian infrastructure, over the wildness of the Balkans, and down in to the meticulously planned grid that is Germany. If you go against the German plan, you might get heavily fined or subpenaed. This applies to everything from train tickets to garbage separation.

Berliners are so laid back that they sometimes j walk, the city has flocks of bikes, and most of the parks are marijuana scented.

Germany is full of travel-related oddities. Hostels throughout cost at least 20 euro, but couchsurfing is big there. Germany is the only country I’ve successfully couchsurfed in, and couchsurfing has been most of my accommodation in Germany.

A train ticket from Berlin to Hamburg costs 70 euro, but you can find the same ticket reselling on for 10. Public wifi is sparse due to the harsh fines for internet piracy, but you can get a prepaid sim card while you’re there. Basically, if you want to go to Germany, be prepared to do things the German way: lots of planning and attention to detail.


The second THANOS AND DARKSEID: CARPOOL BUDDIES OF DOOM. Guest starring: Doctor Doom!

Written by Justin Jordan (who has a new issue of Green Lantern: New Guardians coming out this Wednesday and has a new series, Dead Body Road, coming out in December) and drawn by Rafer Roberts (who is currently making Plastic Farm and Nightmare the Rat comics).

You can read the first Thanos and Darkseid here.


Phil Weicker and Duncan Forster, Los Angeles-based friends and fellow car enthusiasts, spent nearly six years converting a classic 1969 Cadillac Coupe de Ville into an awesome mobile hot tub, the Carpool DeVille. Both former engineering students, the pair devised a watertight steering system and a way to use the car’s original V8 engine to maintain the hot tub’s ideal water temperature of 102F. The Carpool DeVille holds about 5000 lbs of water and has been fitted with a marine throttle to keep the engine running. What was the trunk now holds a pool filtering system.

Weicker and Forster recently used a Kickstarter campaign to raise the funds needed to get themselves and the Carpool DeVille to the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah this August in hopes of setting the Land Speed Record for the “World’s Fastest Hot Tub.”

"Nobody’s ever gone a hundred miles an hour in an open-air self-propelled hot tub while sitting neck-deep in soothing warm water. We aim to correct that mistake of history this August."

Head over to the Daily Mail for additional images as well as video footage of the Carpool DeVille in action.
