The end of the journey took place more than 125 miles from his destination, in Belgium, when the car ran out of fuel and crashed into a dam.

Frank Lecerf, a French 36 years old driver from the town of Point-de-Metz, Amiens, won’t forget the scare he took last Sunday when the car he was driving got jammed at a speed of 200km/h during a normal trip to the supermarket.

Unable to stop his car, a Renault Laguna – adapted for drivers with physical disabilities – Lecerf had no choice but to continue driving on the highway he was on, while he tried to come up with a solution for the problem.

The end of the journey eventually happened already in Belgium, more than 125 miles beyond its original destination, when Lecerf’s car eventually ran out of gas abd hit a dam in Alveringem.

When approached by the authorities to tell about what happened, Lecerf said that in a first moment, the speed of his car got stuck at 95km/h, and that when he tried to slow down the speed continued to increase until it stabilized at 200km/h, giving no other choice to the French driver but to continue driving until the situation was resolved.

The French police was involved in the situation because Lecerf was able to make a call from inside the car, asking for help.

Once contacted, the French police sent a dozen cars to escort Lecerf, with the aim of establishing a security perimeter around the vehicle alerting other drivers of the dangerous situation.

In addition to this safety measure he immediately established contact with the brand technicians, who quickly admitted that the only solution to the problem was to wait for the gas to run out.

After all this, Frank Lecerf already admitted he will sue the Renault brand, due to the risky situation he was exposed to.

The economy and cows around the world

This is a not so comprehensive report on the economy around the world and according to several economic systems.

Socialism

You have 2 cows. You give one to your neighbour.

Communism

You have 2 cows. The State takes both and gives you some milk.

Fascism

You have 2 cows. The State takes both and sells you some milk.

Nazism

You have 2 cows. The State takes both and shoots you.

Bureucratism

You have 2 cows. The State takes both, shoots one, milks the other and then throws the milk away.

Traditional Capitalism

You have 2 cows. You sell one and buy a bull. Your herd multiplies and the economy grows. You sell them and retire on the income.

American Capitalism

You have 2 cows. You sell one, and force the other to produce the milk of four cows. Later, you hire a consultant to analyse why the cow has dropped dead.

Enron Venture Capitalism

You have 2 cows. You sell three of them to your publicly listed company using letters of credit opened by your brother-in-law at the bank, then execute a debt/equity swap with an associated general offer so that you get all four cows back, with tax exemption for five cows. The milk rights of the six cows are transferred via an intermediary to a Cayman Island Company secretly owned by the majority shareholder who sells the rights to all seven cows back to your listed company. The annual report says the company owns eight cows, with an option on one more. You sell one cow to buy a new president of the United States, leaving you with nine cows. No balance sheet provided with the release. The public then buys your bull.

Andersen Model Capitalism

You have 2 cows. You shred them.

French Capitalism

You have 2 cows. You go on strike, organize a riot and block the roads because you want 3 cows.

Japanese Capitalism

You have 2 cows. You redesign them so they are 1/10 the size of an ordinary cow and produce twenty times the milk. You then create a clever cow cartoon image called ‘Cowkimon’ and market it worldwide.

German Capitalism

You have 2 cows. You re-engineer them so they live for 100 years, eat once a month and milk themselves.

Italian Capitalism

You have 2 cows, but you don’t know where they are. You decide to have lunch.

Russian Capitalism

You have 2 cows. You count them and learn that you have 5 cows. You count again and learn you have 42 cows. You count again and learn you have 2 cows. You open another bottle of vodka.

Swiss Capitalism

You have 5000 cows. None of them belong to you. You charge the owners for storing them.

Chinese Capitalism

You have 2 cows. You have 300 people milking them. You claim that you have full employment and high bovine productivity. You arrest the newsman who reports otherwise.

Indian Capitalism

You have 2 cows. You worship them.

British Capitalism

You have 2 cows. Both are mad.

Iraqi Capitalism

Everyone thinks you have many cows. You tell them you have none but they don’t believe you and bomb the shit out of your country. You still have no cows but at least you are part of a democracy.

New Zealand Capitalism

You have 2 cows. The one on the left is looking pretty sexy…

Australian Capitalism

You have 2 cows. Business seems good. You close the office and go for a few celebratory beers.
