    You know, the only thing they would have needed to do so that the movie version of STARSHIP TROOPERS did not suck like a shop-vacc was have a scene where Rico did an orbit-to-surface drop much like what is showen here.

    Okay, maybe not the only thing. But it would have been one less foot-pound of suckage.

    Reminiscent of Heavy Metal’s “Soft Landing”. While this Prius vid is cool, I think I’d prefer the Corvette.
