Multi-country military team NATO is in the middle of a mock-war right now called “Trident Juncture.” Air, sea and land vehicles were all looking totally badass on this beach-storming mission until it was time to roll out the Humvees, which immediately got bogged.
The USS The Sullivans got more than it expected during a test launch of a SM-2 “Standard” missile today. The DDG-68 ship was sailing off the coast of Virginia performing when the missile was boosted out of the Arleigh Burke Class Destroyer’s Vertical Launch System cell and the SM-2 detonated in spectacular fashion.
When you get a congested highway full of tailgaters, fast-lane hogs, and throw a cop in the mix, something's bound to go down. I'm not sure whether to call this a spectacle of quick reactions or just lucky people in a pit of dumbfuckery, but it sure is something else to see.
So we've got a beautiful Chevrolet Camaro clawing at the beach like some kind of shipwreck survivor, a Jeep Liberty with hopelessly overinflated tires hooked up to it via "tow strap," and what looks like a U-Haul trailer floating out to sea in the background. Grab your popcorn, kids.
The Dakar Rally is an unparalleled spectacle of elite off-road driving. Parking lots of the spectator areas are unsupervised clusterfucks full of jabronis who couldn't tell you where their drive wheels are, but reckon they can keep up with Robby Gordon soon as they seem him fly by. Hilarity ensues.
Just because it's called a "safety car" doesn't mean it's always 100% safe. Any time you stick a slower vehicle out in front of faster-moving traffic, you're going to have trouble if everyone isn't paying attention. Here is a collection of pace car fails from over the years.
Looks like a construction truck on the side of this Russian highway decided he'd go ahead and merge into the middle of the road without looking to see that another truck was barreling down on him. Big mistake.
Storrow Drive is one of Boston's busiest roads. It also doesn't allow trucks, because it's crossed by several low-hanging bridges. One trucker decided he'd risk it and wound up dumping a shipping container in the center lane.
Yep, you're bogged. And your friend, well, I hope somebody else has a winch. Go home Land Rovers, you're drunk.
Some jackass driving a gravel truck failed to secure their load properly resulting in two blocks of Washington DC's Connecticut Avenue turning into a rock garden.
Hey, a Rural Willys pickup truck plowing through mud! That's pretty cool, sure hope he makes it over that bump. He doesn't? At least he's got the finest safety technology the 1950's had to offer. Not even that? Come on man, those windshields can't be easy to find.
You don't really think "Like a Rock" when you think Chevrolet Corsica, but who would've thought Chevy's little '90s compact would hold its own in a street brawl?
