Rice paddy crop art

I found this picture of rice paddy crop art on Pink Tentacle’s blog:

I wasn’t really looking at the rice paddy crop art: I was immediately looking at the minivan! First few seconds I thought it was drifting! 😀

Of course it is an optical illusion: the wide angle lens makes the straight road at the bottom shaped like a bend and the minivan is actually reverse parking at the bottom of the picture!

About the rice paddy crop art, it is nothing more than planting differently colored rice plants and wait for the result to grow. It is the same as we do in Holland with the tulip bulbs. 😉

Minivan stoppie

Some months ago I read in an article by Mike Garrett on Speedhunters about minivans doing stoppies to entertain the crowd between the D1SL runs. I did find an excellent movie of someone trying to do the same:

Great! Now let’s learn from that: dismount the shocks on your minivan and drive faster than the allowed speed in your suburban area, pump the brakes to strengthen the effect during the recoil of the springs and voila: a stoppie! 😀
