Semi full of bulls crashes into a tree on a Florida interstate (well, I'm betting the tree wasn't on the interstate), three bulls flee. You'd flee too if you had a terrible driver. That guy will get you killed, fuck that bullshit…

I go to electric car races every year..They are student built and hit speeds of 55 mph.. People see then coming.. But there is little noise.. People will walk across the track.. They end up running there ass off, the cars are on 'em in a sec.

It is funny how internal combustion engine cars get quieter all the time (especially in the passenger compartment) ... in comes the quiet electrics and hybrids, and now we want them to make a little more noise.

But yeah, that doppler effect. I wonder if the doppler effect as a 'warning signal' evolved in humans since the industrial revolution and mechanization.

British blamed for Basra badgers
British forces have denied rumours that they released a plague of ferocious badgers into the Iraqi city of Basra.
