I suspect that's been photoshopped. Find it hard to believe someone THAT stupid. (not counting me, of course )

I don't think the shed has been photoshopped. Both car and shed are lighted from the right and some reflective object somewhere low on the left. It would be hard to match that up.

I found a site for the Prius camper van: Hybrid RV Conversions : Prius camper van




Fluffy pink balls, I'm sold.

My new favorite mineral is tinnunculite which forms when falcon poo reacts with the gases from a burning coal mine. Yeah.

Nice mod when you ran into someone.



This one ran into a carpenter.

Here is one discussion of the Prius RV, but I thought that we had another: http://ecomodder.com/forum/showthrea...ing-20152.html

We had a member that bought salvage-titled Prii and replaced parts of it with wood. He said that the safety inspector did not want to pass off his oak bumper because it was not the full width of the car, even though he pointed out that it was wider than the stock bumper.

Real carpentry would look like this:



With a Type III flatmotor this could have a floor 8" lower, more similar to the Prius.
