In most major cities, congested traffic not only contributes
higher levels of pollution, but also causes road rage, noise
traffic accidents. I propose that traffic be banned from the
inner city and that a massive crowd be installed in its place.
Those who need to travel around the
city jump out their
second storey windows and are crowd-surfed to their
destination (enjoying a free massage in the process).
the crowd would need to be fuelled with a steady supply of
alcohol (a renewable energy source), but this is, apparently,
the only cost of running the crowd-surf system.
or was I thinking of this one?

||Wow that was quick - from home to work in record time. Now where's my wallet? ahhhh!
||didn't farmerjohn do something along these lines?
||As I understand it, farmerjohn is proposing a 'piggy-back'
style, whereas this is more of a surf (ie: being passed from
one bearer to the next).
||is jumping on someone's head just a tad dangerous? I don't want to be negative or anything..
||This would be fine as long as the crowd members had volunteered to be surfed upon. I normally only help crowd surfers on their way because I don't want them to spend a moment longer than necessary on my head.
||Where I live, they baked this today. A HUGE manifestation against the goverment is being held right now... 6 million people participating, almost EVERY FUCKING road has been closed. Now how's that for transportation? Personally, I wouldn't like to jump on them.

who came up with this idea before.
