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.

Sometimes I'm confused by what I think is really obvious. But what I think is really obvious obviously isn't obvious.

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

"Word spread among the populace that UK troops had introduced strange man-eating, bear-like beasts into the area to sow panic. ..."

One housewife, Suad Hassan, 30, claimed she had been attacked by one of the badgers as she slept. "My husband hurried to shoot it but it was as swift as a deer," she said. "It is the size of a dog but his head is like a monkey," she told AFP.
