Naaa...it ain't downstream beer, it ain't flatland beer...it ain't beer at all....it's CURS!

Just watched Mythbusters on Netflix do the drafting show the other day...reminded me of what my father told me about people who could get up close to a truck, shut off the engine and let the vacuum from the truck pull them along...
