Recently, the scientific community was all excited because a new exoplanet was discovered, and this one is in the coveted “habitable zone” that makes real estate so valuable, and it’s even pretty close by! It’s called Proxima Centauri b, and I want to know how well my car is going to drive when I get it there. Sadly,…
The thing about me is that I don’t care that Anthony Weiner is in the news again for sexting. Sorry, but I fail to see how him taking a photo of his dick near his kid and then separating from his wife is a series of events I’m supposed to care about. It’s not that I don’t care about this story per se. It’s just that…
Grievances against NASCAR? Hell yeah, we got grievances against NASCAR. And like a teen stuck at Thanksgiving dinner getting a lecture on everything the Millennials have fucked up, you’re gonna hear ‘em.
The upcoming USS Gerald Ford is a $12.9 billion masterclass in neat new tech with electromagnet catapults and super radar and lots of other cool and very necessary things. Who cares if some of these things maybe, uh, don’t work?
Last month, Jaguar Land Rover said that it will put a fleet of more than 100 autonomous and semi-autonomous cars on UK roads by 2020. It’s quite an ambitious plan, and it looks like now its parent company, Tata Motors, is looking for some Ivy League help.
The Audubon Society has a livestream of an osprey nest in Hog Island, Maine, where this spring viewers were delighted to see the parents, Steve and Rachel, hatch three adorable osprey chicks. After a bald eagle attack earlier this month, they are down to two chicks, because nature could not give the slightest shit…
We’ve already written about how Red Bull has been modifying Bryce Menzies’ 900 horsepower Pro2 truck to handle a world record jump attempt. But now, a couple days ago, Menzies put all those modifications to the test. Here’s how it went.
If you hurry over to Amazon, you can score a 16 ounce Contigo Autoseal West Loop travel mug in white for $12, the best price we’ve seen.
NASCAR was about at its peak in 2008. It had some of the highest television ratings it had ever received and track attendance was skyrocketing. Behind the scenes, the series’ public relations team was preoccupied with jingoistic complaints from its most vocal shitheads about national anthems, Confederate flags,…
The Nikola Motor Company materialized a few months ago with sleek concept photos and incredible stats on an electric semi truck apparently coming soon. Twelve hundred miles of range! Zero emissions! Cheaper than diesel! And today, even more. Now the company says it will put 50 hydrogen stations in North America by…
In the air-cooled Volkswagen world, normally modified Beetles tend to get all the glory surprising feats of off-road skill. That’s why I was so delighted to see this video on the Vintage Volkswagen Group page. It’s like a loaf of bread forcing its way through a mud-stream. It’s great.
Yesterday, news made the rounds that a team of Russian astronomers had detected an unusually strong signal emanating from a nearby sunlike star—a possible indication of an alien civilization. Here’s what the detection of this signal really means, and why it’s probably not ET.
There are few cars that are truly offensive anymore. Lamborghinis are screaming jumbles of polygons for people who live in Dubai. Paganis are obscenely fast chrome-and-carbon art pieces, but they’re hardly repugnant. Want to actually insult people? Get the biturbo V12 Mercedes-AMG G65. It’s great.
Audi’s five-cylinder engine turns 40 today. Created to mitigate the packaging and weight distribution downsides of an inline-six cylinder engine, with the advent of turbocharging and permanent all-wheel drive the motor went on to be a legend.
Vantrue’s compact N1 dash cam is only $60 today with promo code BH2F9URO, but it doesn’t skimp on features. You get night vision, automatic loop recording, a g-sensor to detect crashes, and even a parking mode that uses motion detectors to film anyone or anything that gets too close to your vehicle while it’s…
Have some old tires lying around the shop? Don’t let them go to waste! Put them on your crazy homemade go-kart and get sideways until they pop.
Former House Speaker John Boehner hadn’t uploaded a video since his farewell address 10 months ago, the subtext of which was “you won’t have old John Boehner to kick around anymore.” That all changed earlier today when he uploaded a seven-second video of himself driving his RV out into the plains.
After years of pleading from fans on both sides, Microsoft is finally crossing-over two of its most popular characters: Forza car and Halo Warthog.
