I can top that story. I saw one launching a "personal watercraft" from the BED of his new Ford F-150. By the time it launched, his bed was 1/2 full of water and THEN he panicked and stomped the gas without bothering to take it out of"R" and into "D". When I last saw our hero, his shiny red truck was 8 feet underwater. -Joe in SoFla 1992 urS4, ~56K mi.
