    World's fastest lawnmower - video and photos

    I like this Honda viral marketing bit centered around a modified mower that set the Guinness record for "Fastest Acceleration 0-100mph for a Lawnmower (Prototype)". Starring Mean Mower driver Jess Hawkins.

    I'm impressed that she can get all of that blonde hair stuffed into that helmet without a single strand showing at 100 mph!!

    I don't usually nag about spelling but this is one of those cases where a single letter (or the absence thereof) can be a source of embarrassment.

    I have long hair and when I do fireworks or welding, the hair goes down my back inside the jacket. For fireworks I wear a Nomex(tm) balaclava under my helmet so that holds the hair nicely.

    Really? I had no idea there was more than one way to skin that cat. But I don’t recall ever writing it out before. Thanks for the lesson. Most times a find spelling nazis annoying, but this, I did not know.
