Seems everybody is out for a gimmick to get their goods on the selling block with Honda coming up with their “doggie friendly car”. Honda is one of Japan’s leading automakers has introduced it’s Element Utility Vehicle with provisions for man’s best friend. Starting from a padded doggie seat, a water bowl, dog restraints and a fan all for their own use to cater to the many dog lovers in the US. Dogs have long been our constant companions and with this comes a very enticing package that allows you to take your dog with you on your vacation not having to worry about the poor guy when you do go on vacation. The seat restraints are there to act as seat belts for the lucky pooch which should prevent injury in the event of a crash. It even has an on-ramp where less than agile dogs can get up, sit down and simply enjoy the ride. Talk about gimmicks, this might be one of the best so far for the auto industry that is more known for technological innovation in the quest for excellence!
From the state of Nevada, seems the local government is scraping the bottom of the barrel when they proposed to tax on prostitution which was proposed to compensate for the state’s burgeoning $3 billion dollar budget. Nevada is one of two US states that still allows some prostitution in a form or another, but with the rising problems due to the faltering global economy they have been forced to dig deep into their creative minds and they came up with a Prostitution Tax proposal. Talk about desperate measures, they seem to have gotten away with it, till lawmakers kicked their behinds and killed it dead in it’s tracks. The global recession must be biting really hard on these people who may have lost a little of their common sense, what do you think???
