Sure enough, midway through the second race at Daytona the captioning suddenly started spitting out repeated misspellings of various MLB stars' names.

Watch Hell Break Loose As Lucky Idiots Slam Their Brakes For A Cop

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. » 2/14/15 4:00pm 2/14/15 4:00pm

This Is Why We Can't Leave Grampa Alone With His Tools Anymore


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. » 2/04/15 8:55pm 2/04/15 8:55pm

Why Is An F/A-18D Making An Approach On An Amphibious Landing Dock?

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. So... what the hell? » 1/28/15 8:05pm 1/28/15 8:05pm

What the hell is this strange UFO ejecting an orb filmed in California?

This unidentified flying object was captured on video over Southern California. The UFO—which is producing a corkscrew tail that seems to indicate rotational movement—ejects some round thing that flies into another direction at a faster speed than the object itself.

Dopey Old Couple Almost Dies After 13 Hours Trapped In Unlocked Mazda 

An older New Zealand couple almost died after being inside their new Mazda 3 for 13 hours because they couldn't figure out how to exit the car. This was very close to being an actual tragedy, and one that could have been prevented by — and this is where you cringe — pulling the door handle. » 12/18/14 2:54pm 12/18/14 2:54pm

​I Can't Wrap My Brain Around This 2-Wheel-Drive, Dual-Steering Freak

We all have dreams. But those dreams generally don't involve reinventing the motorcycle with a fetishistic devotion to hydraulics. Ian Drysdale is the exception, and his two-wheel-drive, two-wheel-steer, hydraulically-driven Dryvtech 2x2x2 is proof you can build your dreams. And now you buy it.

​Detroit Man Accused Of Stealing Ambulance To Party At Strip Club

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! » 12/02/14 9:55pm 12/02/14 9:55pm

Here's What Happens If You Keep Driving When Your Car Loses A Wheel

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?! » 11/17/14 3:47pm 11/17/14 3:47pm

This Retro-Aristocrat Style Chevy S-10 May Be The Weirdest Rat Rod Ever

What was once a 1985 Chevrolet S-10 was lured into some lunatic's shop of horrors and has emerged as what I'll approximate as "some kind of post-apocalyptic aristocrat's shooting brake." Plus rust. Wacky! » 11/03/14 4:06pm 11/03/14 4:06pm

Cars And Characters At This Apocalyptic Hellscape Party Are Terrifying

I'd describe "Wasteland Weekend" as "Burning Man" with a post-apocalyptic anarchy theme, but I think that might be redundant. It does take the Mad Max thing to a whole 'nother level though; with a fleet of horrifying cars and weapon-clad characters that just looks like... a lot of fun. » 10/09/14 4:20pm 10/09/14 4:20pm
