Evan Sellers from The Legendary Shots throws a ball from the top of the Vulcan monument in Birmingham, Alabama. To our knowledge, this is the farthest shot (direct distance from shooter to goal) ever made. Whether it’s also the longest (horizontal distance) is debatable (Dude Perfect’s at Kyle Field is about the same length).
The distance from the shooter’s hand to the hoop is about 205-228 feet.
Aussie model and actress Sophie Turner took her insane rear to the beach in Santa Monica recently and put on an awesome show for the spying photographers. I’m in no doubt that she knew they were clicking away and was in full ‘tease’ mode…god I love her full tease mode. I think I just pulled my imagination muscle…ouchie mumma!

Shock Mansion: We wanted to start off by talking about a passion that we both share…fast cars! You have your foot on all sorts of pedals these days can you fill us in on some of the driving you currently do?
Tanner Foust: I’m competing in the US Formula DRIFT series in a NASCAR-V8 powered Scion TC that puts out about 650 hp. I’m also competing in the European Rallycross series, at X Games and the US Rallycross series driving a 600 hp Ford Fiesta that’s one of the most high-strung cars I’ve ever been in.
For the TV show Battle of the Supercars, I’m behind the wheel of something new every week. Among other things this year, I’ve been in a 500 hp Porsche GT3 RS, a 1000 hp Shelby GT 500 Mustang. I’m not allowed to talk much about Top Gear USA, which we’re filming right now, but as you can imagine on that show I’ll be in everything from a Ferrari to a tricycle.
And then there’s the stunt work which is play time in random everything… it’s not a bad gig!
Shock Mansion: Have you ever been to Australia? If you haven’t, is there a possibility you might come and check out the scene here?
Tanner Foust: I have yet to venture down there but have wanted to visit since I saw my first V-8 Super cars race on TV. Between that, jet boat racing and rally I know it would be hard to leave!

As you may or may not have heard, large chunks of Russia are presently being consumed by wildfires. Here’s footage of what wildfires looks like from the backseat of a car bolting for dear life from the Nizhny Novgorod Oblast village of Tamboles.
Several regions in western and central Russia have declared a state of emergency as forest fires are sweeping over 500 miles of land. More than 1,000 homes have been destroyed and 30 people have tragically lost their lives as Russian authorities scramble to contain the spread.

Cynics may dismiss it as just a piece of driftwood or a trick of the light. But a photograph showing what appears to be a long necked sea creature has got marine experts scratching their heads. The ‘animal’ was snapped stalking a shoal of fish just 30 yards off the British coast. The fish were apparently so terrified they beached themselves just seconds later.
The creature was spotted off the Devon coast at Saltern Cove, Paignton, by locals who reported a sighting of what they thought was a turtle. But pictures taken by one of the baffled witnesses, Gill Pearce, reveal the neck of the greenish-brown beast with the reptile-like head is far too long for it to be a turtle. ‘She spotted it following a shoal of fish which beached themselves in Saltern Cove.
‘The creature remained in the sea, then went out again and followed the shoal – this indicates it’s not a turtle as they only eat jellyfish. ‘We would love to know if other people have seen anything like this in the same area and can help clear up the mystery.’
Some people think the sea sighting could be linked to that of a sperm whale sighted off south Devon recently but Miss Fischer dismissed that explanation. ‘They [sperm whales] wouldn’t come that close inshore and the reptilian-like head counts that out – at least that’s what the experts are saying.’ The sighting has caused a stir on the MCS website too, where theories range from sea serpent to salt water crocodile.
