The fastest speedboat in the world, the Phenomenon, made its debut at the Miami Boat Show this month.
This 56-foot watercraft can accelerate to more than 220.5 mph (the current world record). Its four turbine engines give it a whopping 12,000 horsepower.
Engineers from NASA and Boeing as well as former US Naval architects and professional powerboat builders collaborated on designing the Phenomenon.

Massive Roof Avalanche. Yes, this is how they pass the time in Romania. I wonder if anyone is crazy enough to try and ride that thing down to the ground? Maybe we should call these guys?
Soichi Noguchi, a Japanese astronaut, has become the first Sushi chef in space, making a salmon sushi roll. This is clearly the dude I would ‘roll’ with if I was at the International Space Station. Soichi also has a twitter page, so follow him HERE and be sure to check some of his amazing photos.
As an MMA fighter, Chuck Liddell is used to working up a sweat while wearing little in the way of clothing. Now the former light heavyweight champion has taken it to a new level in the form of a new viral video for Reebok.
Liddell performs pulls up and squats while wearing nothing but a pair of Reebok sneakers. All the while, his equally naked girlfriend, Heidi Northcott, bounces up and down on an elliptical machine. This will have millions of views before the week is out no doubt.
A deadly 8.8 magnitude earthquake hit Chile early on Saturday morning. The earthquake has destroyed buildings, highways and bridges, and the death toll is above 200 and expected to rise. Due to the earthquake, a wide tsunami warning was put out to all countries on the Pacific Basin, including Australia, Hawaii, New Zealand, Central America and Pacific Island nation, although fears of a destructive wave are now passed. Chile has been hit with dozens of aftershock quakes, and President Michelle Bachelet has said that this event is “one of the worst tragedies in the last 50 years.”
Our thoughts go out to the people who have been effected in any way by this tragedy. More photos are after the jump.
Was he running a little too much boost or did somebody hide a grenade under his bonnet? Everything seems hunky dory with the warm up burnout, then things turn sour like milk left out in the sun.
