    ^ in the UK, a quid is just slang for a pound (the money, not the weight, because theres no such thing as a pound in metric)

    Man, sitting this car in random parking spaces and taking off when people get near it would be blast. Heck, you could make an entire TV show out of just that.

    Put it in a heavy car jacking/stealing area and you could get even more laughs as it flies away from thieves.

    I knew from the beginning it had to be a balloon... I mean, something floating of that magnitude? Even cables would hardly hold it up without severely restricting its mobility.
