The Nexus Of The Universe Has Been Found And It Is A Discount Tire Store

Or is that a Tire Discount store? Anyways, we have finally found it, everyone. The nexus of the universe.

This Russian Military Truck Can Drive Over People Without Hurting Them

Russia has a problem, and that problem is snow. Specifically, Russia has a lot of snow. Lots. Lots and lots and lots.
