1,158 players. 5,089 vehicles destroyed. 53,729 kills. Big numbers, is what I'm saying.
Bill Harrelson is no stranger to spending alone time in a small plane. He's the current record-holder for distance flown during a flight, having flown from Guam to Jacksonville, Florida, at a distance of 7,051 nm, in 38 hours, 29 minutes in 2013. Now he's trying to fly from pole-to-pole in record time.
Yes, there is a Guinness World Record for "the tightest parallel park." And Han Yue beat it this week; sticking a Mini Cooper between two other cars with not more than 3.15" to spare. Also, he did it in one motion.
For anyone who's ever stared at a toy Tonka truck and a nitro R/C car, just wishing there was some way the two could be combined into one smoke-billowing whip-cracking maniacal machine... your fantasies have been realized in life-size as the JCB GT; "the world's fastest backhoe."
Traffic is bad enough when there are cars all around you. It's worse when they're on top of you and you're floating in a void. Also in today's Highlight Reel, a new Mario Bros world record, Destiny meets Tony Hawk Pro Skater, and more!
Matt Guthmiller's Twitter profile reads like an impressive résumé. "Entrepreneur. Software Engineer. Pilot. MIT... Youngest person to fly solo around the world." Matt earned that title last week, upon safely landing his Beehcraft A36 Bonanza in San Diego — with nowhere near the fanfare he deserved.

Everyone has been hearing that the Hennessey Venom GT would be the fastest production car in the world before one was even built... perhaps to the point of annoyance. But with 1,244 horsepower to carry just 2,743 pounds, there was little reason to doubt that the car would be very, very fast.
Maybe you've never heard of the Hacienda Hotel, but you may have seen a Cessna 172 with "Hacienda" plastered on the side in big, goofy letters hanging in the Las Vegas airport. They're connected.
It started as a run-of-the-mill 125cc scooter, but by the time a 31-year-old UK plumber had his way with it, it was a veritable school bus on two wheels — 78-feet long, heavy and difficult to drive.
German Ronny "C-Rock" Wechselberger made parallel parking history earlier this year when he flipped his Volkswagen Polo into a spot approximately 26 centimeters (10.24 inches) longer than his car without crashing. It beat the old record by just one centimeter.
