I do this all the time with a group of friends, We race in and around trees, around football fields, in underground carparks, basically anywhere we can sit down and fly! It's incredible fun and requires crazy skill and reflexes. I've completely destroyed quite a number of quads practicing. Read more

I've actually held one of these, best part of knowing the curator of a firearms museum... Read more

Helis are great for certain circumstances, but the majority of the catastrophic fires we have had in southeastern Australia have been within 100km of the ocean, which is the largest source of water I can think of... Many of the largest fires have also occurred in the vicinity of our largest dams, which a CL-415 could Read more

That's actually a CL-215 pictured, it has the old radial engines and shorter fuselage. The 415 runs turboprops with an extended fuselage for larger water tanks. Read more

They make great mine trucks though... I smashed a 70 series troopie around a mine site for 4 months, the twin turbo V8 diesel is a champ. It'd take 11 people sitting in it with a heap of mine recovery gear and just keep pulling up the decline. It left the Hiluxes we had for dead when climbing out of the hole... Read more

That footage was shot on CV-64, USS Constellation. Obviously sometime before her retirement in 2003. I miss seeing Prowlers and Tomcats on deck :(

Aussie here, can confirm. My neighbour had a Turbo falcon ute, ended up upside down in a ditch, with a tree where the rear axle should be. Read more

I shoot them and eat them. They are tasty in the same way that baby cows are tasty. Having said that, if a deer really doesn't want to be found in the forest, it's pretty hard to find. Here in Australia they are a pest species, but the government recently closed the open season on most deer species except sambar, Read more

Agreed. I didn't have a car all through high school. I caught the damn bus. If I was *really* lucky I sometimes borrowed my dad's car in senior year when I had exams. But I had to drive him to work before school... Read more

I remember reading a review of the blown Bullet V8 in MOTOR magazine when it first came out, It was all kinds of awesome. Early 2002 I think. I feel old now... Read more

I enjoy looking at pictures of beautiful cars. I enjoy both the form and function of automotive design. James May described certain cars that produce a "fizzing sensation" similar to sexual arousal. There is somehow something deep within the human (admittedly, usually heterosexual male) brain that finds dangerous, Read more

Oh geez... That was far too many beers ago... Good news is that before you graduate, they will implant this lovely thing into your brain that will do all this stuff for you. It's called MATLAB. And we never had to do differential equation solving by hand again... There was much rejoicing.

Yeah it's a serious spectacle... We have it in Australia too, I've been to a couple of races, the noise is phenomenal, and the speeds these guys do in shallow water is insane...
