Man Pulls Cop Over, Busts His Illegal Unmarked Car

Citizens initiating traffic stops on police officers — hey, why not! Cops aren't above the law, and sometimes they need to get called out. Self-proclaimed "liberty speaker" and failed Congressional candidate Gavin Seim recently did just that, and instead of getting arrested or shot, won himself some Internet glory. » 10/20/14 12:53pm Today 12:53pm

XKCD Finally Answers The Question About How Fast You Can Die At Daytona

Every Monday morning, I wake up, come to work, turn my computer on, and ponder the same question. "Sure, I'd like to enter the Daytona 500, but I'd want to get it over with really quickly because it's Monday and I have Things To Do.

Bell's Newest Tiltrotor Could Finally Improve on the Osprey's Feathers

The V-22 Osprey's mechanical and aeronautical shortcomings have been well-documented. That's why, for its third-generation tiltrotor, Bell has taken a good hard look at the ill-fated aircraft (one it helped design) and built the plane-copter hybrid it should have back in 1983. » 10/20/14 12:16pm Today 12:16pm

Even a few years ago, it would have been hard to believe that we would have 707 horsepower street cars just running around like it's no big deal. The Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat and SRT Charger Hellcat are screaming deals for all that power. You'll have to pay a little more for those extra doors, though. » 10/20/14 10:20am Today 10:20am

How To Squeeze 830 Miles Out Of One Tank Of Fuel And Remain Sane...ish

I'm not going to lie: I'm pretty delighted that I (and my partner) won Audi's TDI Challenge, where nine Diesel A3s attempted to drive from Albuquerque to San Diego on a single tank of Diesel. Part of why I'm delighted is because winning means it's over, since it was a pretty miserable process. Here's how we did it. » 10/20/14 10:04am Today 10:04am
