    Car addicts celebrate

    Today is Carl Benz 160th birthday. He, together with Gottlieb Daimler, invented the gasoline-motor-powered automobile.
    He was born in Karlsruhe.

    BTW, Karl Drais was also born in Karlsruhe. He invented the early bicycle.

    This city has put the world onto wheels.

    I thought the world was on 4 giant elephants, standing on a even more giant turtle swimming through space?

    I've got a 2D version of the SLR hanging on my wall here (drool).
