ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
For a mere $3127.59, you can own a tent shaped like a London Underground carriage, which sleeps 16 and seats "around" 72 people.

Because why not commune with nature in an urban underground mass transit vehicle?
What, like having a subway station in the middle of the desert?
That tent is definitely at London prices.
It costs that much because of all the copyright licensing fees. Just imagine what you’d need to pay if you wanted a London 2012 Olympic logo on the tent!
That is a very good rendering of a 1995 stock driving car built by Alstom with attention to detail, such as the cab door controls. In the rush hour I bet it even moves at the same speed.
I’d at least want it to be like one of the nice new Metropolitan Line trains.
Thanks a lot Cory, now Maggie’s going to make us get this tent.

Mind the gap!
Is the overpowering scent of urine included?
tube? carriage? It’s English, but not as we know it…
Well, the English do speak what we must concede to be proper English.
Oh, please. The country that keeps pumping out neologisms like ‘yobbish’ and ‘shambolic’?
Made in China.
Green Park…. This is Green Park.
A TARDIS tent would be neat….
Especially because you’d have to implement the “bigger on the inside” feature using nylon and string…
i bet when you order it, it arrives late!

"Shadows in the Woods" is the English version of the German board game Waldschattenspiel, an absolutely beautiful and extremely fun game for two or more kids and one adult.
The BBC: "The computing giant Microsoft has made its first-ever quarterly loss after it wrote off some of the value of its online advertising business."
I love how anachronistic this ad for earning big bucks by learning steno is -- among the obsolete elements contained in it are dictation, shorthand, shorthand gadgets.
