North Korea Opens Grisly New Museum To Mark Their Korean War 'Victory'

North Korea opened the reconstructed Sinchon Museum yesterday with a huge ceremony marking the 62nd anniversary of the “Korean people’s victory in the Fatherland Liberation War,” or as we call it, the Korean War.

Don't Film The Hells Angels Because They Will Destroy Your Window

If you’re just hanging with your bros, your dudes, your fellows or what have you, you might think it’s fun to take a little video of a passing Hells Angels gang. You might think it’s innocent.

Acura RDX vs. Mitsubishi Outlander: Is It Worth Spending An Extra $15K?

I’ve been wanting to do some really lopsided comparison tests — something along the lines of a Lamborghini Aventador vs. a Mitsubishi Mirage.

The Only Thing Better Than A Harrier Demo Is A Triple Harrier Demo!

Oshkosh has been full of awesome military aircraft action this year, and the Marines didn’t disappoint.

This Clean Lamborghini Murcielago Is Cheap As Dirt And Fake As Hell

Kit cars are interesting if only to delve into the insane mindset of the person who builds one. It’s the Canal Street handbag that everyone can spot from a mile away - but not always. Sometimes fakes like this Lamborghini LP640 replica are so convincing that they’ll take several once-overs to let you know that you… » 7/27/15 2:28pm Today 2:28pm

SF Crime Is So Bad Police Need Quad Bikes That Transform Into Jet Skis

Cops on Segways are so 1993 and no one takes them seriously. That’s why San Francisco now has cops on quadskis, the ATV that turns into a jet ski that turns whoever’s riding it into a kind of poor man’s James Bond.

Quality Assured: What It’s Really Like To Test Games For A Living

There’s an old commercial for Westwood College that’s become something of a running joke in the video game world. Two young men sit at a couch, hammering away at PlayStation controllers. A woman walks in. “Hey guys, finish testing that game yet?” she asks. “I’ve got another one I need designed.” » 7/27/15 1:38pm Today 1:38pm
