Solar Powered FAIL, New Orleans Style

Some guy dumps his girlfriend, his job, and a ton of cash to build a solar-powered car and drive it across the United States for some reason or another. All well and good, even if it is stupidly naive. But this story achieves FAIL status when he left the Manbearpigmobile unattended in The Big Easy.

But an hour after he parked on a busy, well-lighted French Quarter street, someone broke into the van and stole passports, laptops, credit cards, cash, a digital camera and a portable hard drive.

Despite the estimated $10,000 loss, da Luz seemed in high spirits the next morning, describing the break-in as a "dent" in his ecological barnstorming tour. He insisted that he was still enjoying his first visit to the Crescent City. After discovering the theft, da Luz and an assistant from the Netherlands trotted to a nearby tavern to "drown their sorrows."

Fucking stupid hippies. Just for that, here is a musical tribute.
