We've Still Never Seen A Truck Like The 1994 Ford Power Stroke Concept

We've Still Never Seen A Truck Like The 1994 Ford Power Stroke Concept

This is the 1994 Ford Power Stroke Concept. It looks like the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile wearing a raccoon mask. Back then Ford pitched this drivable showpiece as "a suggestion of what tomorrow could bring." How close do you think it came to panning out?

Watch The La Marqueta Chase, An Illegal Bike Race Through NYC Traffic

Watch The La Marqueta Chase, An Illegal Bike Race Through NYC Traffic

On an overcast 70-degree day in mid-October, about forty thrill-seeking bike messengers and cyclists sped off on an illegal bike race known as the alleycat, zig-zagging through traffic, running through red lights, and evading NYPD to compete for a hefty first place prize of $1,000 courtesy of the Coca-Cola Company, one of many sponsors. None of the competitors — mostly men on road and fixed gear bikes — knew where the 34-mile course would take them until the start of the race.

The La Marqueta Chase Alleycat started and finished at 116th and Park Avenue, celebrating the recent reopening of the marketplace under East Harlem’s Metro North railway tracks. The race “connected riders to a series of markets throughout the city, borough to borough,” said Diego Gerena-Quiñones, a messenger for Street Kings. Unlike other alleycats, the race didn’t require paper stamping at checkpoints. Instead, riders took selfies and posted them on Instagram with hashtag #LaMarquetaChase. Dominican Chris won the grueling race, finishing in just under 2.5 hours, followed by Mike and Austin Horse, according to co-organizer JC ‘Diablo’ Ramirez.

Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito was there to show support for her district and constituency. “It’s a way to play up the community,” she said. However, she admitted, “I don’t know what to expect.”

Officer Darren Wilson Won’t Be Charged In Shooting of Mike Brown

Officer Darren Wilson Won't Be Charged In Shooting of Mike Brown

A St. Louis County grand jury has decided against indicting Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson in the fatal shooting of unarmed teenager Mike Brown, to the surprise of virtually no one, but the disappointment of a nation. The Brown family released the following statement:

We are profoundly disappointed that the killer of our child will not face the consequence of his actions.

While we understand that many others share our pain, we ask that you channel your frustration in ways that will make a positive change. We need to work together to fix the system that allowed this to happen.

Join us with our campaign to ensure that every police officer working the streets in this country wears a body camera.

We respectfully ask that you please keep your protests peaceful. Answering violence with violence is not the appropriate reaction.

Let’s not just make noise, let’s make a difference.

St. Louis Alderman Antonio French shared a Vine of Michael Brown’s mother, Lesley McSpadden, surrounded by protestors. She said, “They still don’t care. They ain’t never gone care.”

The Cops Are Looking Into The Ferrari F50 Wakeboarding Video

TaxTheRich's Ferrari F50 wakeboarding video was pretty sick, wasn't it, brah? One group of folks in England definitely didn't think so: the cops. They're looking into whether any laws were broken during the filming. Lame!

LEGO's Inspiring Message To Parents In the 1970's


Lego. Always good. Never hateful.

70s-lego-note.jpg This is the note that was included with some LEGO doll house sets in the 70's, reminding parents that it's okay for girls to want to play with rocketships and boys to build dollhouses. It's weird to think some parents actually needed to be reminded of that. I had a Cabbage Patch Doll growing up. And a My Little Pony. It was pink with blue hair. I bet my mom still has it. Plus a jar full of my baby teeth. Ooh -- and my rat-tail. I know for a fact she has my rat-tail in an envelope somewhere. Thanks to Luis, who agrees there's nothing wrong with a boy wanting a Polly Pocket playset (I had two of those too).

This Italian Parking Fiasco Video Is Too Good To Be True, Right?

by Jason Torchinsky

This couldn't be more perfect of a situation

I'll be honest with you, readers, because you're the only ones I really trust: I love a good fiasco. I mean, if something's going to go wrong, I love a nice avalanche of wrong to really settle things. And it should end with a parade, or maybe a dead horse. This video of a guy trying to park a Fiat 500 comes shockingly close to that.

Scientist Falls 70 Feet Into Mountain Crevasse. Not Only Does He Live, He Also Got it on Camera

Disclaimer: Adult language and blood.

Western Kentucky University professor John All was conducting climate research in Nepal on Monday when he suddenly fell into a crevasse, breaking his arm, five ribs and dislocating his shoulder.

"It probably took me four or five hours to climb out. I kept moving sideways, slightly up, sideways, slightly up, until I found an area where there was enough hard snow that I could get an ax in and pull myself up and over," he told HLN's RightThisMinute.

"I knew that if I fell at any time in that entire four or five hours, I, of course, was going to fall all the way to the bottom of the crevasse. Any mistake, or any sort of rest or anything, I was going to die."

See the rest of his ordeal below:
