BMW and Buzz Aldrin's epic shark FAIL

BMW has a promotional docu-video thing out that opens with former astronaut Buzz Aldrin talking about how he once took a ride on a whale shark and how that’s the kind of effortless transport mechanisms we need these days.  Actually, what we need these days is for people to not promote the harassment of marine life, for former astronauts to stick to being former astronauts, and for BMW to not promote and disseminate this kind of misinformation.  I don’t use the FAIL meme all that often, but this one earns it fair and square…

If you want “mobility” Buzz, stick to a Hoveround
