Head-On Into A Deer - Literally

carnecks_weekly_five_deer_hits_biker
We all know how chaotic it can be dealing with animals running across the road in the middle of the night as you're driving home. What about during a race and in direct sunlight? And did I mention its not a car, but a bike? This is the footage of one unlucky racer whose victory is cut short by a deer, and not only does he hit the deer, but his body is what takes the damage, leaving the bike nearly unscathed. Of course for this guy it seems to be an everyday occurrence to get plowed by a deer into your chest. Enjoy.

Google Fiber Is Coming

Before fiber optic internet connections, electric cars, and Soulja Boy, there was something called 56k, or as the older folks know it as - Dial Up. It was a wonderful thing at the time, but nothing in comparison to what followed - DSL, Cable, and so on. This delightfully creative and fun ad from Google illustrates how our internet progressed, and ironically this very ad about yesteryear's technology being trumped by today's phenomenal achievements foreshadows something that will trump today's technology, and its called Google Fiber. Enjoy.

Shelby GT500 vs Lamborghini Gallardo

Usually Mustangs and Lamborghinis don't mix very well, and this video is no exception. In the middle of what appears to be a primarily-exotics track day, a GT500 takes a corner behind a few other exotics, and then a Lamborghini Gallardo comes in, loses control, and taps the driver-side door of the Shelby GT500, leaving a small dent in the Mustang, and the Lamborghini all to pieces. Enjoy.

Road Rage Revenge - The Drive-By Splash

We all know that feeling of road rage, but when have you ever actually gotten "back" at the other driver? Well, one brave soul - or perhaps just very ignorant - decided to get revenge, and he did. After seemingly being cut off by another car, the SUV takes to the puddle-filled mud and takes advantage of its aggressor's open windows with nothing less than a good splashing. Enjoy.

Chances are if you're in your teenage years and enjoy drifting, racing, and cars in general, then you're probably scraping up pennies as you read this, saving for that used Nissan 240sx that you saw on Craigslist. However, if you're REALLY broke, you can just get a paper one instead. Jokes aside, this all-paper 240sx creatively designed and assembled by what appears to be a very talented Russian guy, is amazing. Enjoy.
