    This is a video of a hero traffic cop in China casually setting up road cones to divert traffic around a collapsing sink hole after he notices the ground begin to crack. Based on the way traffic is behaving, I'm surprised drivers even went around the cones instead of taking th... / Continue →

    Yesterday there was an hour long car chase in Los Angeles after two guys stole a Ford Mustang, and this is a video of the Phoenix-based Fox 10 News anchors providing what can only be described as the opposite of expert commentary during the chase. I loved every second of it. ... / Continue →

    This is the BB-8 tire cover spotted by Redditor dubsallday on a road in California. Pretty clever. There's a video of BB-8 in action after the jump which doesn't play right in Firefox but does in Chrome and I don't know about Safari because I didn't test that. I'm going to m... / Continue →

    Seen here looking like they're auditioning for parts on The Big Bang Theory, Ginnard and Adam from Youtube channel Slow News Day test out a Tesla Model S P90D's autopilot feature during rush hour traffic. The car handles unsurprisingly well, presumably because it isn't distrac... / Continue →

    This is a video of Jaguar setting the Guinness World Record for the largest 360-degree loop driven in a car. Apparently they performed the feat last year to celebrate the company's 80th birthday. To celebrate my 80th birthday? Go face-down in a cake, then poop my pants and s... / Continue →

    This is a shot of the aftermath In Minnesota of a dog that drove an 18-wheeler across the street from where it was parked, over a curb, into a tree, then into a parked car. I suspect he'd been drinking. Just water though, he is a dog after all. The whereabouts of the truck's... / Continue →

    This is the Tesla Model S electric car for kids created by Telsa and Radio Flyer. The cars go on sale May 16th, have working headlights, use the same fast-charging lithium-ion battery technology as full size Teslas, and can reach a max speed of 6 MPH. Did I mention they cost ... / Continue →

    This is the toilet seat made for attaching to a parked car's tire. I can not stress PARKED CAR enough because you do no want to try to use this thing while the vehicle is in motion, someone will almost certainly see your ass. I've actually seen toilet seats that mount to a tr... / Continue →

    This is a video of Jarrad Provost's son riding around in his modified Power Wheels car. And by modified I mean Jarrad attached a leaf blower to the side so his son can clean up leaves while he ridesr around. Pretty clever. Getting work done AND having fun. It's a shame that... / Continue →

    This is a video reenacting the gameplay of the PC/Playstation's top-down style Grand Theft Auto 2, using a camera-equipped drone. They did a great job, and clearly put some real thought into making the video. Personally, I only put real thought into 1) what to have for lunch ... / Continue →

    This is the helmet-cam footage of a Russian vigilante woman who picks up litter tossed by other motorists and throws it back in their cars. In the case of the screepcap above, what appears to be a McDonald's milkshake. Looks like you should have drank the whole thing, jerk! ... / Continue →

    This is the 1974 Chevy Malibu that Star Wars fan Bill Deacon turned into a replica of the Millennium Falcon. "It's uncanny." Right? For a second there I thought I was just looking at a screencap from one of the movies. But it's not, there's actually an old car under there.... / Continue →

    This is a Google Maps view of Geldrop (links to actual Google Map), a Netherlands town with streets named after characters from J.R.R. Tolkien's books. WHY does it have streets named after J.R.R. Tolkien characters? No clue. Plus it's Friday afternoon on Valentine's Day so I... / Continue →
