We kind of had to post this, simply because we like typing "Poughkeepsie." Poughkeepsie. Poughkeepsie. Poughkeepsie. Okay, sorry, we're done now. Poughkeepsie. No, really we're (Poughkeepsie) done. Regardless, a gang of students all got together at Dutchess Community College, which we presume is somewhere near Poughkeepsie, to run maglev model cars down the track. Some were fluffy. Some were wind-powered. Ours would've utilized the body of a Barbie doll and had an Estes D-Class rocket motor on the back. Maybe some sort of confetti warhead at the front for extra-awesome end-of-track asplosiveness. Minds would've blown, man. Minds would've completely been blown. Poughkeepsie. Shit. We're really sorry.
