Talking with some guys from the office about a Mercury Grand Marquis we rented for our latest trip to Florida, the following conversation transpired:

It was ridiculous trying to make a U-turn in that thing. You could turn the wheel all the way to the left, and you’d still cross all three lanes and hit the curb on the other side.

That boat had a turning radius the size of Utah.


The turning radius is measured in AUs.

*Louder laughter*

Yes, we are geeks. Thank you for asking.
