    Seen here on what appears to be a 4,000-lane highway, a checkpoint on the other side of a tollbooth causes a bottleneck and massive traffic jam outside of Beijing. Honestly, if I had been stuck in this I probably would have spontaneously human combusted. I do not cope well wi... / Continue →

    This is a BMW X6 with heat-sensitive paint that reveals The Hulk when doused with hot water (previously: this car treated with the same style of paint). Pretty cool, right? Unfortunately, cars usually don't get doused with hot water that often. I guess pee would work too. H... / Continue →

    This is a parody video created by the folks at Rooster Teeth imagining if Microsoft's Bing developed a self-driving car. It was cute enough for a watch. I liked the last minute. The last minute is always the best. Take sex for example. You can't argue with that. Keep goin... / Continue →

    It's not actually towing the other car, it's pushing it. The BMW in front is the car with the trouble, the car behind it just taps it a little bit to keep it up to speed. It's the guy in the trunk's job to hold the tire to cushion the pushin'. Plus smoke that cigarette. Su... / Continue →
