What do we even call this crazy crash? A high side? A front side? Did he call it mean names and it decided it wanted him off? Regardless of what we name it, this is called having a bad day. »
Karaoke, Japan, rock and roll, gummy bears, professional killers. I don’t really know what the hell I just watched but I couldn’t take my eyes out of it. The weirdness in this short film builds up and up and when you think it can’t possibly get any weirder something even more weird happens. »
Exactly twenty years ago today, one of the most baffling moments in Formula One history happened: Taki Inoue got hit by the medical car at the 1995 Hungarian Grand Prix. Let’s take a moment to remember one of the most bizarre mishaps in F1, shall we? »
In a crime that sounds as if it was from a James Bond film instead of real life, F1 driver Jenson Button and wife Jessica Michibata were robbed in a vacation home in the south of France. Burglars pumped anesthetic gas through the home to knock the couple out before stealing over $465,000 worth of items.
There are a few basic rules you need to follow to live in modern society. Among them: don't drink and drive, and when your car breaks down on the freeway, don't use it as an opportunity to wiz while cars, um, whiz past. »

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. »
Reader Doug noticed last night that the closed captioning for Fox Sports 1's NASCAR broadcast "seemed to be drunk." Sure enough, midway through the second race at Daytona the captioning suddenly started spitting out repeated misspellings of various MLB stars' names. This went on for more than five minutes; we… »
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. »
This 1998 Buick La Sabre is the automotive embodiment of every grandfather I know; family-friendly-if-conservative demeanor up front, batshit backwoods construction project inspired by a few swigs of cough medicine out behind the house. »
This video of a USMC F/A-18D making an approach to land on the USS Bonhomme Richard LHD-6 is bizarre. The thing is that VMFA(AW) squadrons, who fly the USMC's missionized two-seat F/A-18Ds, don't embark on super carriers and there are a lot better places to work on your instrument approach skills.

You know how it goes. It's late. You're a little randy. You're looking for some kicks, but you don't have a ride. What's a lonely guy to do? Hey! Is that an unmanned ambulance idling in front of a hospital? To the strip club! »
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?! »
