It takes a special sort of person to drive a McLaren 650S. As a supercar capable of hitting 100 mph in under six seconds, they won’t even sell you one unless you have two very specific things: about $300,000 and a functioning metabolism. One man in Essex, England with just these criteria bought one, and managed to…
Elliot Smith plays somberly in the background. Trains don’t care about you or your issues. Robin Williams ain’t gonna therapy you out of getting hit by a damn train, you dummy Cambridge kids. I don’t care that it’s going slow. Just slow down man.
Recovering a stuck truck is serious business; there’s a lot of weight and energy at work and if you don’t take safety seriously you can end up like these idiots: dodging a flying steel projectile for dear life.
I’m not sure why racing on a public road full of other cars and trucks doesn’t seem like a terrible idea to people, but it is. If simple logic doesn’t get the concept across, maybe this wreck, caused by a race between a Challenger and a Charger, will. Three are dead, and the carnage of the multi-car wreck closed…
A perverse part of me sort of admires this idiot. Firstly, because this guy seems to actually own a grape-soda-colored Honda Pilot, and secondly because you have to admire the power of rage-thinking when it can make a presumably mostly-rational human think they can win a tug-of-war with a tow truck and somehow all…
I think it’s time to discuss an issue that has been severely plaguing our society since day one, when Benjamin Franklin landed on Plymouth Rock and declared independence from Europe. That issue is: most people are idiots.
I present to you Street Racing Idiots in Three Acts.
I can’t stop watching these goofballs turn their Chevy Suburban into the worst paddle-ball toy ever.
A cop in Doncaster, England reportedly parked his unmarked police car in a neighborhood to look for a suspect. By the time he got back to the car, he'd forgotten he'd driven that one and freaked out thinking he'd found a stolen police car.
Street racing is so dumb. Seriously. It's one of the dumbest and most irresponsible things you can do in a car. Yet the drivers of this Hellcat and GT-R decide they'd rather risk the lives of everyone around them to street race. Thankfully, the cops were also there and they put a stop to it.
I've never put much stock in user generated reviews, but I do peruse them on bigger purchases, or when I'm bored and need a good laugh. These reviews however for some tires I'm considering (Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3's), oh man do they take the cake.
This isn't "dragging an exhaust pipe," or even "driving on a flat tire." The front-right tire of this tired old Chrysler 300M is completely absent, and the wheel itself has been ground down to the shape of the letter D. Yet the driver presses on. And on. How could you possible reckon this is a reasonable idea?!
We've all come across some cheeky Wifi network names, like "FBI Surveillance Van" or "We Can Hear You Fucking," but on Sunday night, one idiot decided to board a flight with a personal hotspot called "Al-Quida Free Terror Nettwork," which resulted in a 17-hour flight delay from LAX.
Truck drivers generally aren't so bad. In fact, they can even be pretty good. Heroes, even. So that's what makes this video so alarming. This isn't your average crappy Toyota Echo driver, with their feet out the window. This guy has his feet on the wheel, and it's at the wheel of a multi-ton truck.
You are not Jeff Gordon. You are not Dan Gurney. You aren't even Ayrton Senna. (Unless you are any of those three, in which case, that's very impressive, especially the Senna part, for obvious reasons...). So don't just assume you can do sick burnouts in front of huge crowds like it's nothing.
Here at Jalopnik we're not doing much to cover the Gumball 3000 supercar rally... except when they do predictably moronic or hilarious things.
Either CNN anchor Don Lemon is one of the stupidest people on the planet or he doesn't have any scruples. Watch him speculating about the completely idiotic ideas sent by imbeciles on Twitter—asking if it could be possible that Malaysia Flight 370 was swallowed by a black hole or maybe the island from Lost took it…
Update: See bottom for newest idiots Fox News and ESPN. Today's Daytona 500 is currently in a weather delay, so Fox is airing last year's edition. Many NASCAR fans are incapable of reading the ticker at the bottom of the screen, and are live-tweeting the race out in excitement. Here are some of those dumbasses, as…
Don't fuck with Jim Cantore, as he clearly knows MMA. Check out that flying knee!
Chicago Jalops may recognize this as the northernmost point of Lake Shore Drive's outer highway, where LSD meets Sheridan Road and Broadway. It's about two blocks from my house, and the sweeping curve that leads to this intersection (pictured below) is right next to the park where a theatre production I'm in (…
