Except that ad. That's just annoying.

Also, a video I took of it: http://one.revver.com/watch/319225/flv/affiliate/98737 (also in my signature.)

A bit of backstory: I had seen this around for months, but it always managed to (barely) elude me - I'd go to get my camera, and it would be gone. I'm proud to have finally captured it.

Awesome, did you ask the driver if they knew how lucky they were?

I've made a point of getting up at 1337 o'clock (1.37pm) for the past few days. :) (Yea, I know, I'm lazy.)

Did you ride in it? If so, did the driver speak only in netslang and 1337speak? I myself have never seen a taxi, so this occurrence would be double rare for me.

If the driver were there, I likely would not have been able to take these shots. I'd venture that nobody in my suburb understands the number's significance.

If the driver wasn't there, then what the hell were you doing take a video? Get nicking that ad sign on top! :twisted:

I once saw a guy with a 1337 bag. It just said 1337 on it instead of initials. I freaked out kind of in public.

Any chance of taking out the pictures from the quotation? Or at least only have one. It only makes the loading more horrific.

Cool taxi!

Far far away. What I meant was That I've never seen a taxi car. There are vans that take disabled people around, to and from school and whatever, but no cars. I have seen them on movies, of course.

That's the one I took but I posted first. BOOM. :-) It's all good because I didn't post it as a spoiler. This makes me miss MTG; however I do not miss getting into nerdy fights about how things resolve on the stack *shudder*

The people I played with ignored the stack rule totally. And now I have a shoebox full of cards and no way of using them. Should have learned my lesson from Pokemon and DBZ cards.

And you only win if you post the pathway. Sorry.

in my country that would barely get you off the forecourt, you would feel significantly less warm and probably less fuzzy.

With the price of gas you must have to refill that thing every half hour.

I saw this taxi about a week ago (Chicago, right?)
I took a picture of it to show to my friends. I totally wouldve put it here, but y'know... someone else did first.

...You guys do realize motorcycle gas tanks are generally only a few gallons, right? $13 goes a long way.

<edit> This is me remembering that gas prices are not consistent at all, and that right now, where I live, it is generally $3-$3.20 a gallon.</edit>

I get around 50 or so to the gallon and its a 5 gallon tank.

At $3.00 a gallon and assuming I have some left in the tank, $13.37 is just about full to the brim.
