This Is What America's High-Speed Rail System Should Look Like

America is a car country. We always have been, and we probably always will be. But as much as we all love driving, we have to recognize that there are some downsides to not having a first-rate rail system like Europe or Japan. » 2/09/13 3:00pm 2/09/13 3:00pm

Florida Man Is America's Worst Superhero

Any time we feature some crazily awful story out of Florida, it's typically from a newspaper or local TV news headline that contains these two words: "Florida Man."

Expert Gran Turismo Drivers Can't Race In Real Life Because They're Too…

Since it launched in 2008, Nissan's GT Academy has repeatedly done something previously thought to be absurd and unrealistic: It has taken people who are really, really good at Gran Turismo and put them in the seats of actual race cars. Look at Spaniard Lucas Ordoñez, who successfully went from gamer to pro driver… » 2/09/13 10:00am 2/09/13 10:00am

Are Old Airbags Safe?

This Is Why People Think BMW M3 Drivers Are Asshats
