If the saundola's a-rockin'...

so are the rest of the trolleys, probably. The crafty Ylläs resort in Finland has devised a gondola car that heats to 170 degrees for the, umm... enjoyment of a wealthy guest and three friends. Apparently, riders are free to shed everything, from parka to base-layer, for the two-hour round trip.

This story comes via Wend Blog, who wonders about the environmental impact of this "luxury mountain travel." Personally, having managed an apartment building that had a sauna for tenant use, I just hope the Finns are hosing this sucker down after ever trip.

I give thee 1 bacon, but only because thou art slightly awesomer than an apartment building sauna.
