All over the world, the humble little dinghy boat is the safe and simple introduction to boating for millions of people. Not in the town of Renmark, on the banks of South Australia’s Murray River, however. There, in the otherwise sleepy town of just 8,000 souls, they like to strap souped-up outboard engines to their little dinghies and then race them at speeds of up to 80kph in a race that since 1981 has grown a deserved reputation as one of the fastest and wildest events on water, the Riverland Dinghy Derby.

“Shun Hing Square Tower is a 384-metre-tall (1,260 ft) skyscraper in Shenzhen, China. With a 59 metre spire. This is the third tallest in Shenzhen and 28th tallest in the world and today we will climb on it!” – @ontheroofs. Holy sh*t, I would have stayed on the elevator with the asian family, eaten noodles with them and lived a long and happy adopted life.
Harry, Ron, and Hagrid go hard in “Straight Outta Hogwarts” by The Frost Bros, a hilarious Harry Potter parody of the classic N.W.A. gangsta rap song “Straight Outta Compton”. I love that there’s no Hermione, because they couldn’t convince any girls to film this with them.
Travis Pastrana is a man of many talents; in 2006 he put his name on the map with the world’s first double backflip on a motorbike at the X Games. Since then, the motocross and rally car hero has added to his plethora of records. However, his most recent is undoubtedly one of his most impressive yet; Travis has only gone and landed the first ever double cork 1080 on a mountain bike.
EVS Sports just launched their freeriding video “Free To Ride” featuring Anthony Murray destroying Ocotillo Wells and clearing the iconic 110 foot gap for the second time on record.
Many people enjoyed her performance. But a large group of people on the internet, however, are reacting with horror and outrage to Beyoncé’s halftime performance. Among the offences they list: Beyoncé gave a Black Power salute onstage; her dancers were dressed in costumes that honoured the Black Panthers; and the music video for “Formation” protests the government’s slow response to Hurricane Katrina, offers support for the Black Lives Matter movement, and draws attention to the killing of black men by police in America. All of this, taken together, caused a freakout.
From “Blade Runner” to “Ex Machina,” robotic lovers have been a staple fantasy of sci-fi films for years. But one man—RealDoll CEO Matt McMullen—is trying to make AI-enhanced sex robots a reality. In his factory in San Marcos, California, McMullen is experimenting with adding artificial intelligence to his high-end, ultra-lifelike silicone “love dolls,” which cost more than $5,000 apiece. With this new AI, McMullen is hoping that his dolls could one day be more than just sex toys — they could be real romantic partners for humans, capable of thinking, talking, and loving like a real partner.
The girls – who are both in their twenties – were rescued when one of them managed to escape and was spotted running naked, covered in blood and screaming for help. The backpackers – believed to be European – were seriously injured and told their rescuers that one of them was hit over the head with a hammer, while the other run had been run over. Police swooped on the Coorong National Park, arresting a man facedown in remote sand dunes.
