A North Miami outfit has created a remarkably low-tech “modification” for a self-balancing electric scooter (AKA “hoverboard”) that allows it to be operated from a beach chair. It can even tow all your other giant goofy toys.
Some brave Canadian laddermen recently showed up to put out a grass fire, but their hoses weren’t getting any suction from the hydrant. Why? Because it was stuffed with fucking fish!
Most trikes are bad trikes, because they’re “I like to roll over” trikes. But this trike isn’t one of those trikes. It’s better than those trikes—because it’s bigger than those trikes.
Earlier this month local news in Mexico said a woman’s 1991 Nissan pickup truck was stolen at a gas station in Hermosillo. She posted this hand-scribbled picture to Facebook which was immediately turned into a meme. It’s kind of mean, kind of funny but hey, she did end up getting her truck back!
A primate was found perched on the seat of a motorcycle, maybe seconds away from mastering its controls and finally bridging the eternal gap between monkeys and humans in the motorcycle community. Then some asshole had to go and throw a shoe at it.

Folks in Shaoxing City raised eyebrows when some punk pulled up in a Porsche Cayman and opened up an impromptu scarf-vending stall on Shengli Dong Road. He said he felt bad asking parents for gas money after they bought him the car.
Embarrassing open mic nights, topical parodies, gaming tutorials—these are the YouTube videos we know.

This illustration of what looks like a motorcycle powering a Rube Goldberg machine is being identified as a patent-render for a vehicle reportedly being cooked up by students at Chang'an University in Xi'an, China. Looks neat, if a little pointless.
If you want a grossly gaudy ride to the prom that looks fresh off a rack at Toys R Us, get a Hummer H2 and slap 20 feet of fuselage between the wheels. Real rough n' tumble off-road party goers will pick this jacked-up Lincoln Town Car every time.
