Jan 16 2009WTF!: The World Thorium Fuel Vehicle

wtf-1.jpg

The Cadillac WTF is a conceptual car by designer Loren Kulesus that runs on Thorium, a possible alternative nuclear fuel to uranium. You know, because there's nothing like driving a car packed with radioactive metal to keep you under the speed limit. Just kidding, I'd speed anyways. And glow! Did anybody else think that picture was real at first? No? Me neither then. I spotted that rendering from a mile away. Hawkeyes they call me. Well, hawkeye. F***ing falcon.

Hit the jump for several more renderings, all of which reminded me of the DeLorean from Back To The Future because 1. they look nothing like it and B. I'm still hoping to do a dinosaur. What? No, I didn't stay up all night drinking. Funny story: I stayed up drinking all night.

World Thorium Fuel Vehicle [coroflot]

Thanks to Doverish, who still gets his radioactive fuel the old fashioned way: by stealing it from Libyan terrorists.

I think it looks kinda cool, but that's the dumbest name I've ever heard in the history of dumb names that I've ever heard....

so.. umm.. i'm guessing this will never be sold to old asian ladies cause that will just end in nuclear holocaust..

You guys are lame. That car is awesome.

I rather ride in a tinted 'rape van'.

How do you get in that thing?

@6. A female - Bend over and I'll show you.

Anyone who purposefully names the vehicle WTF (I thought GW was kidding at first until the last picture) obviously has their head up their ass.

WTF indeed

@8. Ollie Williams - Anyone who also doesn't realize it's a fake car with a fake name might also have their head up their ass.

No, it's not real and even if it was it's a bad concept. Giving a regular person a nuclear car is like giving a hyperactive kid access to some grenades.

Sure, it might seem like a good idea at first, that's until the kid blows you to smithereens!...

Good Morning Geekologie.
What do we got this morning let's see....Fake Cars, Back to the Future references, a drunken blogger, and Ollie Williams being a cock sucker.

Happy Friday everyone!

WTF - Wow That's f***inulgy

Wow. Awesome looking car if you have an eye for horrendous concepts. I dig the infrared picture though; shows exactly how the car will not work.

But hey, Ollie can give us the true specs....right Ollie?

Front is cool.... back end is FUGLY!

@10

Really? It's fake? Seriously? Huh. That's weird, I totally thought it was real after reading the article saying it's a "conceptual car", "possible alternative", and "I spotted that rendering". I'd think that would have been a tip off you f***ing piece of shit.

Go take your moronic comments somewhere else, tool.

The guy in charge of naming the car must have been in charge of this magazine.

@14

It has a top speed of 28 MPH, gets 3 MPG highway, and contrary to the article about it running on Thorium, it's actually ran off the semen of LSDiesel and Cameron. Unfortunately, the only way for this to run is when they are ass f***ing each other, thus this concept will never make it to mainstream auto makers.

They should kill this car along with me

@16 & 18. Ollie Williams - It's okay buddy, we both know you're one of those people who only looks at the pictures, makes a stupid comment, and then goes back and reads the article after looking real stupid. Everyone's done it before, mostly in the 1st grade, but still, we forgive you. You should try not to get upset so easily, stress is bad for your health.

THATS a cadillac!? WTF is right.. It'll be a decade before we start seeing cars looking this different, look at how long it took us to get away from the cars of the 70's. I don't want one until it has rocket thrusters, wings & a teleporter

@20

That's your comeback? Weak. At least LSDiesel can come up with some sort of insult. You're just new fish here on Geekologie, I'm sure you'll disappear soon enough.

@18

The concept of ass f***ing is well known in the US car industry, they have been doing it for years and now with bail outs they are ass f***ing the country wholesale.

^ ^ and of course until it's real

#12 hehe. Like most (all) GW posts I read through the information & go straight to talking to all of you before thoroughly reading the detail and hitting the jumps, so I usually fall into these 'fake traps'

As entertaining as it may be or not be to see others do the same, it's even better when people start fighting about it :)

@22. Ollie Williams - Oh my God, you know, you're so right! That was a weak comeback, let me bolster my self esteem a little bit, tell me how I do on this one:

ZOMG! UR SUCH A n00b ASSHAT! UR MOM HAS BIG JUICY BEEF CURTAINS AN U SUFFER FROM CHRONIC QUIEFING DISEASE DUE TO AN INSATIABLE APPETITE 4 ASS f***ING AND ANAL BEADS! YOU FREQUENTLY MASTURBATE TO THE THOUGHT OF INSULTING PEOPLE ON GEEKOLOGIE AND TAKE GREAT PRIDE IN HAVING POSTED IN EVERY ARTICLE ON THIS WEBSITE FOR THE PAST 5 YEARS! YOU HAVE OATMEAL BLISTERS COVERING YOUR FACE AND DINGLE BERRIES HANGING FROM YOUR NUT HAIRS!!!!!!!!!!!!! BAH HA HAHAHAHAJFKASIDGK

How was that? Did you like the all caps? I sure hope you like me now, Ollie, it really means a lot to me that we be best friends from now until forever.

heheh #25

Chronic quiefing & masturbating to the thought of insulting people on geekologie isn't normal? Yikes, I need to make a phone call

@26. known - Damnit, dude. I do that, too, but I was trying to make Ollie feel stupid like he was the only one, but you f***ed that one up, now didn't you?

The IR photo looks like those "beef curtains" mentioned in an above post..
Instead of alternate fuels, why doesn't Cadillac make a car that actually handles instead of floating down the road like a soaked tampon being flushed down a toilet?

Sometimes the comments are better than the article. Regardless, I still want my Nuke car, though when I saw Thorium I couldn't help but think of Dr.Strangelove. Gentlemen you can't fight in here, it's the war room!

#27 Sorry Cameron, I guess this is me today http://www.w3bdevil.com/forums/You-Are-f***ed_Up.jpg

Runs on thorium does it?

Since it's a conceptual vehicle, and not real in any sense of the word...why say it runs on thorium? I mean, If you're just making shit up, why not say it runs on something free and clean, like pixie dust or happy thoughts?

@30. known - LOL! That is f***ing awesome, just for that I am no longer mad that you ruined my attempt at putting Ollie to shame.

Oh my mortal soul, 100 out of 10 on the Dr Strangelove reference! "I'm cured! Mein Fuhrer, it's a miracle!!"

Don't worry Cameron, you'll have plenty of other chances with Ollie and shamefulness. I am glad I turned all that anger into laughter. So about this chronic quiefing now when I'm on the phone....

@ known

Consider us no longer BFF's.

goddammit there goes good times during holidays >=(

I think whoever designed this concept purposely intended to capitalize on the "What the f***" connotations. I mean, "World Thorium Vehicle"?! WTF?! Unless this was done by the same Taiwanese guy that used to make all those knock-off NES games; "do not submersible the carpridge in waters".

@36. known - AH HA! I KNEW MY PLAN WOULD WORK! You see, known, now Ollie is MY BFF and not yours! Suck it, quiefer!

FAKE!!!!

This is a complete photoshop job. You can tell its a fake because the shadow's are all wrong.

This is an underwater mirage of a scene from the movie Tender Dracula. Dracula chases some crooks and winds up in the Blue Oyster bar.
He leaves soon afterwards.

FAKE!!!!

This is a complete photohop job. You can tell its a fake bevcause the shadow's are all wrong.

This is exactly like that scene in the movie Never Back down where Pat Sajack slipped some crack laced gummi bears into Bajas bacon cheese log. When Max came over and had a few slices he hallucinated that he was living in the super mario universe. At one point Pat was talking to him and all he heard was I'm a Wario, I'm a gonna win. Max hopped on his Moped and started throwing banana peels at all the other vehicles.

WHITE f***ING POWER. THIS IS A WHITE MANS CAR. NO f***ING BARACK OOGABOOGA OBAMAS f***IG ALLOWED

This car is F***ing kicka** but is it safe.

please, killm e

Cameron = shit today for comment #38 You suck it mr shittypants quiefshitter

Same old Geekologie. I come back and the whole operation has gone to shit. Time to open up a can of assplaster and I don't even know what that means.

Who's the dipshit that thinks he needs to include both the number and the poster name on every response?

@ 38. Cameron - It's you in case the description wasn't enough to tip you off.

See what I did there?

mombelitist - I've always liked your style.

@45. momboelitist - January 16, 2009 3:57 PM
Me too!

Nice Police Academy Reference Spam Artist

Just like Fallout 3.

Mombo - "Same old Geekologie. I come back and the whole operation has gone to shit. "
How can it be the "same old geekologie" and have "gone to shit" at the same time?
