This is a clip of a Boston police officer inspecting a children’s slide for safety (I’m kidding, totally just dicking around), and getting taken on the ride of his life in the process. At least he didn’t shoot it afterwards. But why was he riding face-down? Who taught you how
This is a video of the very Britishly named Tiff Needell taking a man for a quick spin around the Thruxton Circuit (the UK’s fastest) in a BMW M2. I learned a lot by watching it. Mostly, how much some people nervously laugh when they think they’re about to die.
