World's fastest shopping cart?


A British man has fitted a shopping cart with go-kart wheels and a jet turbine (the auxiliary power unit from a Chinook helicopter).





I'd like to see him drive that up and down the aisles of his local supermarket at 40+ mph, trying to grab what he needs as he roars past the shelves and toss it into the cart.  I predict lots of misses!

Old hat. Outfit named Turbonique was doing this in the '60s. Jack McClure drag raced a Turbonique-powered kart at well over 200 mph.

Yep, WAY too much free time! :-)
