This has nothing to do with the ICS, but considering Dan Wheldon's dominance, his excellenct chances at Indy, his...Britishness, well, let's just say this story needs to be brought to your attention.

The UK Sun gleefully reports that in Leicestershire (which I believe is pronounced something like "Lester Sheer") Marek Turowsk has broken the fastest furniture land speed record by piloting this Sofa up to a striking 92 MPH. And as you can see he even had sponsorship on his sidepods.

What's more unbelievable - the fact that there even IS a "fastest furniture land speed record" or the odd realization that the British are using Miles Per Hour instead of kilometers?

Meanwhile there are unconfirmed rumors that Japanese engineers at Honda have undertaken a secret project involving an ethanol-powered barcalounger.
