Now, I’m not even going to pretend this is particularly timely, or even something I discovered on my own. Because it isn’t, and I didn’t. But it’s something so achingly pure and beautiful I nevertheless felt compelled to share it with you: the greatest, most concentrated collection of driver idiocy ever recorded on…
Russia has had a lot of wonder weapons in the news, from combat walkers to nuclear-powered cruise missiles. Many of these weapons verge on the ridiculous or are the product of propaganda, but some are legitimately concerning. One scenario that keeps Pentagon planners up at night: the threat of sea-launched cruise…
I’ll admit, this story from AutoClassics.com is incredibly light on details and I’ve had trouble finding other sources for it, but it’s fun, so what the hell: in Russia, a guy tries to steal three Ladas, on three separate occasions, and each time the Ladas break down before he can complete his crime. See, a Lada’s…
If the Cold War turned hot, it wasn’t entirely going to be fought with tanks and nuclear weapons. If it got to Alaska, it would be fought by lumberjacks, bush pilots, and yes, secret agents. That was the point of Operation Washtub, the secret CIA plan to defend America’s frozen north against communist invasion.
Moscow has lost a new missile, one unlike any other. The missing missile is not only nuclear-armed but also nuclear-powered. Now, ten months after the crash the Russian government is going after the missile’s remains, scooping them up before someone else does.
In a speech given earlier today, the State Department’s assistant secretary of state for arms control, verification, and compliance, Yleem Poblete, mentioned that a Russian satellite made a series of maneuvers that are “inconsistent” with its expected behavior, and is behaving in a manner that suggests it could be…
A Renault driver was hospitalized and two pedestrians narrowly escaped a 3,347-pound Chevrolet Corvette C7 hurtling at them uncontrollably in Tula, Russia, on Wednesday, after the Corvette struck the Renault and veered into a shop. The driver of the Corvette appeared to emerge unharmed.
People are dumb and will only make you sad. Cars are always there for you. If I put my car in people-shoes, I can pretend it’s my friend and we’ll be best friends forever!!! Here’s how the crazy Russians at Garage 54 did just that with one of their previous weirdo builds, which works far better than it should.
In a stroke of genius, Vlad from YouTube channel Garage 54 ENG decided to fill an old Russian Lada sedan with five tons of concrete. The result? Getting the manual-trans car to move at all under its own power with all that weight onboard was a real struggle that likely chewed the hell out of that clutch.
When the world does eventually end, it probably won’t be with horses. It’ll probably come in the form of salvos of ballistic missiles, all being launched at once. Thanks to the Russian Navy, we now have a good idea of what that will look like.
Dolphins are our friends, and that means sometimes they do our evil bidding and fight our wars for us, as friends do. But sometimes, sometimes, they go EVEN FRIENDLIER, by starving themselves until they die (????) because they refuse to fight for Russia (???????????).
I suppose some of you might think I’m a gold-thirsty and heartless monster, but I didn’t ask for this reputation, that’s just you plebs being jealous. I do have a heart, actually, and I’ll prove it to you by telling you a little story about how I gifted a limousine to my friend, V.
If you want to maximize speed on an ice racetrack, studded tires are the way to go. But they’re not always cheap, so YouTuber Garage 54 ENG decided to make his own using self-tapping screws and some old tires. The results are actually impressive, even if this idea isn’t exactly “advisable.”
Russian YouTube channel Garage 54 exists in a magic place somewhere between Mythbusters and The Red Green Show, where cars are subject of delightfully sketchy experiments. Take this attempt to run concrete instead of air in their tires, for example. I mean, roads are made of concrete. Why not tires?
The 18,000-foot Mount Elbrus is a proud mountain, and it recently displayed its natural grandeur in the most appropriate of ways: by dropping an avalanche onto a parking lot and eating a bunch of cars.
First of all, this is almost certainly staged. The car that gets angle-ground is an old, bumperless Lada, the most likely sacrificial car of the ones seen in the video. Even with that in mind, this is still a nice and ridiculous thing to actually see happen, as it pretty much realizes a fantasy all of us have had when…
A plane in Russia carrying $378 million worth of gold, platinum and diamonds lost its cargo on Thursday after its door broke off upon takeoff, according to The Moscow Times. I’m sure the pilot feels great today.
Last week Vladimir Putin, a frequently shirtless equestrian ghoul who also happens to run the Country Formerly Known As The Soviet Union, gave a long, mildly unhinged state-of-Russia speech that made reference to a number of new Russian weapons systems, including an anti-Mar-A-Lago missile system and a nuclear-powered…
The Russian Tu-95 ‘Bear’ isn’t just a relic of the Cold War, with the potential for a nuclear payload capable of untold devastation. It’s eight contra-rotating propellers also enable to it hold the reputation of the current Loudest Plane In The World. This is what it’s like inside.
A U.S. Navy EP-3 surveillance plane, flying over international waters, was harassed by a Russian Su-27 Flanker fighter jet yesterday. The Russian fighter jet flew within five feet of the American aircraft, in what Navy officials told CNN was an “unsafe intercept.”
