It happend in southern France a few days ago.
Human error said the pilot.
No one got injured, and they were lucky to be able to only loose the floater (see bottom pic). They quickly released all the cargo to be able to take off after the impact and fly back to base.

In France they try to pass on the right lane, but on some freeway it's risky beacause it's where all the junk (tires pieces, etc.) end up. So sometimes they do the same as here, like German.

#12

In France a crepe is thinner and "lighter" than a pancake (you can bake them without any oil or butter using a PTFE coated pan -- Teflon Dupont). They are also well known to be served as main dishes (you dont necesseraly use regular flour, but also "raw" buckwheat flour wich give them a more salty taste. You can accomodate them with ham, eggs, cheese and tomatoes for instance. O:)

Crepes are one of the most common recipes found in France (and kids love them, we even have a special day for them : "La Chandeleur" on February 2 (Virgin Mary's Blessing Day).

When I went to the USA I recall someone calling them something like "Swedish Pancake"

I use one almost every week for the regular DIY mechanic. However mine is larger (the bag part).

In France we call it a "Dakar Jack" (from the Paris-Dakar race) or sometimes a "Sahara Jack". It's really fast, secure, and helps you lift the car on almost any surface. Its also lighter than a regular 2 tons jack.

It takes arrounds 20 seconds when accelerating at middle boost to lift my Subaru Legacy 2.0 Liters LPG. The only difficult part is to fit the pipe in the silencer tube when the tail is not round. It's easier when they are two people, one in the car, the other holding the tube on the rear exhaust.

#16 the parachute cannot slow down the rover below 200mph (320kmh) because the atmosphere is too thin and differs in composition from ours (different gases = different density and friction). Also add the different gravity...

Additionnaly, the balloon is not a precise enough option when it comes to "where do we land". The rover must absolutely land in a valley, otherwise it would be useless. And the balloon has to fall far from the rover not to smother it !

It's actually "legalish" to passe between the cars in some countries (like France).
Here, it's allowed when both lines are at stop (or below 5km/h), and if you hit a car, what ever side it is on, you must pay the damages (unless the other car was swapping line without any turn signal).

So, don't start saying stuff like "it's illegal in the first place". It depends. We don't know how is the law in Brazil.

However, you're right about most of modern car's windows : they are made of tempered glass because it's somehow secure and cheaper than laminated glass. Some manufacturer like Volvo or Audi and Mercedes let you choose in option for laminated glass for all windows (around 300€/$)

Actually (cauz Im french..) the guy says it only has, for now, 350 hp but the designer will modify the engine by adding a compressor to take 500 from it.
Also, it weights only 500kg.
Wheels and brakes from a Porsche GT3, no chassis (the driver seats on the engine...).
Price will be 200.000 Euros (pretty much the same in dollars).

PS: by the way, the bugatti Veyron is a french car... Citroen won several times the WRC (world rallyes championship) and Renault won the F1 championship a few times too... and recently Peugeot won the 24h of Le Mans with their 908 (racing mainly against Audi). Just a reminder :p
