The Tweel 8 track tapes, vinyl records, analog TV, Windows OS 3.1, 95, or 98, and a host of other items have come and gone in the past, and your car tires could go this way eventually. Michelin is experimenting with The Tweel, an airless tire that could make the inner tube a thing of the past. The pros are that having a flat tire would become a thing of the past, when the tread is worn, it can be replaced, as opposed to discarding whole tires, lessening the environmental impact by reducing the rubber discarded, and the polyurethane spokes can be designed to handle differing road conditions, but it isn't ready for market yet. Driving over 50 mph can result in undesirable vibrations, also the sound is loud to the ears when driven at high speeds. When these new airless tires eventually hit the market, there might be another valuable item though that goes the way of the dinosaur. Apparently spike strips are useless against them. I can't see law enforcement officers being overly enthusiastic about this new technology!

Infomercial King Billy Mays Found Dead in Home DEVELOPING: Television pitchman Billy Mays who built his fame by appearing on commercials and infomercials promoting household products and gadgets died Sunday, FOX News confirms. Mays was found unresponsive by his wife inside his Tampa, Fla., home at 7:45 a.m. on Sunday, according to the Tampa Police Department. Police said there were no signs of forced entry to May's residence and foul play is not suspected. Authorities said an autopsy should be complete by Monday afternoon. Mays, 50, was on board a US Airways flight that blew out its front tires as it landed at a Tampa airport on Saturday, MyFOXTampa.com reported. "Although Billy lived a public life, we don't anticipate making any public statements over the next couple of days. Our family asks that you respect our privacy during these difficult times," Mays wife, Deborah, said in a statement on Sunday.

1999 Tennessee Roadkill Bill In March 1999 Tennessee's state legislature became the butt of jokes for debating a so-called 'Roadkill Bill.' The intent of the bill was to make animals killed on the state's highways the property of anyone who wanted the mangled carcasses, presumably for a meal. The bill stated, 'Wild animals accidentally killed by a motor vehicle may be possessed by any person for personal use and consumption.' Wrote one aghast New York Times columnist, 'In other words, it would be legal to eat roadkill. Legal to eat the thousands of squirrels, opossums, raccoons and rabbits that meet a painfully horizontal death every year beneath rubber tires. As if a state law were preventing anyone from scraping a happy meal off the asphalt. As if anyone would even dream of it.' In one of his Tonight Show monologues, Jay Leno comically suggested Tennessee's state motto ought to be changed to 'Fender-Licking Good.'
