A P-Plater who travelled 200km/h in the breakdown lane high as a kite before ploughing into another vehicle — sending it crashing over a guardrail — later giggled to police “it worked, it got rid of the car”. After the crash, the court heard, Kayden James Lawson took off on his skateboard before being found a kilometre down the road trying to hitchhike; a witness picked him up in his car and returned him to the scene, where a number of other onlookers stood around the car to keep him inside. Lawson was sentenced to four years’ jail with a non-parole period of two years and six months.
Crank Lucas raps about what exactly black holes are, how they are made, spaghettification and other complicated astrophysics!
Would you believe me? What if good-ol’-having-a-year-off-Mick Fanning was one of those surfers, and he told you that this wave had him haulin’ arse like an F1 driver down a strip of sand that never seemed to end. Would you believe him? This ain’t no f**king wave pool! This is the real world. This is The Snake.
In 2017 the Parsemus Foundation will be releasing Vasalgel: a contraceptive for men. If you’re a female and you’ve been on the pill all this time, you can look forward to sharing the responsibility with guys. The relief of not having to worry about unplanned pregnancy may seem too good to be true; however, a study is currently underway using baboons in the Parsemus lab in order to test the effectiveness of the product. So far, it has tested well, and is now being prepped for human studies, which according to their website, should be ready to be conducted early this year.
“Project OverCharged! That’s what this beast of a Diesel Rat Rod creation by the guys at WelderUp is being called. We caught up with Steve Darnell, the owner of Welder Up and star of Vegas Rat Rods, in the desert at King of the Hammers 2017, where he gave us the inside scoop on this one-of-a-kind 1968 Dodge Charger. 5.9L Cummins diesel, twin chain-driven superchargers, twin turbos, NV4500 transmission, custom 4×4 1 ton chassis, this thing is wicked!” – @bustedknucklefilms.
Boom, a gazillion. You’re rich. Boom, another gazillion. Anyone else want a backstory on his roommate too, perhaps a dedicated movie? Team Thor: Pt. 2, Where Are They Now? further explores the adventures of Thor during the events of Captain America: Civil War, with the mockumetary showing the God of Thunder living in Australia with a roommate named Darryl. Thor is having trouble paying rent (sorry, coins from Asgard don’t cut it), and he rebuffs Darryl’s suggestion to get a job. After all, he already has one — and it’s called saving the planet.
If you followed the pounding swell at Half Moon Bay recently, you likely saw repost after repost of charger Francisco Porcella’s now-famous tumble down a toothy Mavericks face. Missed it? Check it out now. It was the fan favourite of another giant day at Mavs, not to mention the most lighthearted butt slide we’ve ever seen down, you know, one of the world’s most dangerous waves.
Wearing a vegan lycra outfit, this cyclist known as Durianrider on Youtube, confronted a driver in Adelaide. The footage shows a group riding along a narrow road at Adelaide, when a car overtakes them across unbroken lines. He was signalled to pull over, then confronted by the raging cyclist who claimed he passed too close. What do you think?
It started with minimal entries, but the Rotary RE-union has expanded to become one of the largest on track Rotary events in the southern hemisphere. It started in 2015 as a way for rotor heads to dust of their classic machines and meet up with likeminded individuals. Cars arrived from all over the North Island and some even traveled up from the South Island. A huge event that only grows in size every year. Want more? Visit the man behind the lens, Danny Wood Photography NZ on his Facebook page. He’ll be uploading a ton of photos online from the event shortly so stayed tuned for that!
