Video: Picking up a quarter with a fork lift

| | Comments (0) | TrackBacks (0)
There are a lot of videos online showing how fork lift (also called hi-lo's) drivers can do this.

I just like these guys.

Don't know why the aspect ratio on the video is so weird ...

Video: Trouble With Roundabouts

| | Comments (0) | TrackBacks (0)
Roundabouts are new to Michigan drivers, so I expect confusion at new roundabouts, such as the junction of M-37 and M-46, or in Grand Rapids at Wealthy Street and Lafayette Avenue. But I would think European drivers have it down. No at this intersection in Erfurt, Germany, where engineers didn't build up the center of the roundabout, they just painted it in.

This dash cam video from December 2010 in Wichita, KS, shows two police cruisers on a highway threaded by an out-of-control SUV. The driver was injured and charged with drunk driving.

Never mind that this guy has too much time on his hands (he put a dash cam into a toy!).

But couch potatoes everywhere should be inspired.

Video: Parallel Parking Fail

Video posters tend to be sexist, especially towards women drivers.

I have seen plenty of men incapable of parallel parking.

Do Not Get Used To Slowly Dropping Gas Prices

| | Comments (0) | TrackBacks (0)
Do not, repeat, do not get used to dropping gas prices.
Gas pump
Ed Aboufadel of The Gas Game, who makes it a habit of correctly predicting gas prices in West Michigan, says gas will bounce back up to $3.19 any minute.

He doesn't seem to know why. Gas prices usually drop at Christmas, he says. But gas prices are not behaving normally these days.

When I left town on Christmas Day, gas was around $3.04 a gallon. In the next couple of days, I drove through Chicago and saw gas range from $3.13 to $3.28 (on the I-294 toll road).

When I came back to Grand Rapids, gas was $3.19.

What were you people DOING!?!?

Since then, gas has slowly slipped in price, but Ed says we will be rocketing back to $3.19.

There are predictions that the nation will see $4 a gallon this year. I don't know if they mean $4 a gallon in expensive cities like Chicago or if we in Flyover Land will get hit with that price, but it doesn't bode well for us fossil-fuel-fired driving folk.

Video: Skiing Down Park Avenue

This is not some snowbound town in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. This is skiing on Park Avenue in New York City after the big Christmas weekend storm.

Proof that some New Yorkers will do anything to avoid cab fare.
