I would certainly be freaking out if my little two-seat plane suffered a complete engine failure over Taiwan, but this pilot remained perfectly and absolutely calm as he safely got the thing on the ground. Then he took the time to cuss out everyone in existence.
China is mulling a new law that would require submersive naval vehicles to travel above surface and report its movements to authorities and report their movements to government authorities. In other words, it’s asking submarines not to act like submarines, which is hilarious coming from a habitual maritime law…
The Chinese government has reportedly sent its only aircraft carrier through the Taiwan Strait, the body of water that separates mainland China from the nation of Taiwan. While no missiles have been launched yet, Taiwan launched fighter jets and maritime patrol aircraft in response.
At least two children in Taiwan have been scarred for life after watching big metal jaws gruesomely dismantle a Lamborghini Murciélago right before their innocent eyes. Someone please hug these kids and tell them there’s a better world out there, because this just ain’t right.
President-elect Donald Trump’s decision to speak with Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen, making him the first U.S. leader to do so in four decades, is much bigger than a phone chat. We’re literally arming China’s enemy.
It was already an uncomfortable feeling, standing next to a custom motorcycle in the middle of a restaurant I didn’t know the name of, in a country I’d never been to, talking with a man I couldn’t understand. And then he fired the damn thing up.
Harry Houdini is alive, people. There's no other way to explain this car crash.

"It's like you never pay attention to me," — this guy's girlfriend, probably.
You ever watch a professional airline pilot at work and think "Pfft, whatever, I could totally do that?" The answer is probably no, because sometimes you have to deal with super typhoons, and those are never fun.
You ever see those signs that say something along the lines of "Watch Out for Falling Rocks" and you scoff and wonder who would care about a few pebbles? Yeah, this giant goddamn boulder that almost completely crushed a car in Taiwan is what that sign is talking about.
PRO TIP: Building your own raft out of junk you found on a beach in order to sail from one country to another is rarely a good idea, even if it worked in a movie you saw.
China and Japan's dispute over the Japanese purchase of the Diaoyu Islands has started massive protests, shut down factories, and has threatened $340 billion in annual trade. A photo even purportedly showed an Audi dealer wishing all Japanese were dead.
Here's a car passing by a large crane and somehow it gets caught by the crane's hook. What's amazing is how long it takes for the crane driver to notice he's lifted a car off the road.
Here we see the awkward moment when a kid tries to fake a car accident, only to find out that the car has a dashcam and recorded the whole thing.
"Guile's Theme" isn't the only thing that makes life better. So does the Super Mario Bros. theme, as evident by this video.
Here's the setup. The driver of a green Toyota, maneuvering through an alley in Taiwan, apparently pisses off two guys, one of whom jumps up on his hood and goes ro-sham-bo on his windshield. Call it alley rage, Taiwanese style.
Watch a forklift driver in Taiwan provide the answer to the riddle "How do you move a BMW 5-Series wagon across a construction zone without its wheels touching the ground?" Ultimate driving machine, meet ultimate parking enforcer. (Thanks Robert!) [e90post.com]
