    Unsafe at any speed!

    Pulse-jet = easy to make, powerful!

    @carmium & @MrOrange: Me too! I was shouting "for gods sake put on some elbow pads and a helmet! Gloves!" I fully expected to see "road spaghetti"...

    @CrakrJak: I kept waiting for the "Earth Shattering Ka-Boom" too!

    @Gerry1: Pulse-jet: like the V-1 "Buzz Bomb"

    Not "turbo-jet" since it doesn`t have "turbines" (either kind) inside it.

    Not "rocket" because it depends on outside material to operate: air for reaction mass and oxygen for combustion.

    Believe The Cat For He IS Wise!
    Occasionally at least :-)

    He also has the world`s fastest functioning toilet, amongst other things.

    He`s a brilliant loon. I take a look every now and then to see what ridiculously inappropriate combination of object and engine he`s made recently.
