How The Man Behind The Machines Of Mad Max Put A Hellscape On Wheels

by Damon Lavrinc

“Make it cool or I’ll kill you.” That’s what director George Miller told Colin Gibson, the production designer responsible for all the cars in Mad Max: Fury Road. Gibson did one better: he made every single one of them functional, because the desert doesn’t suffer mechanical fools lightly and CGI is bullshit.

Attention SUV Drivers: Stop Avoiding Potholes

by Doug DeMuro

"People in SUVs brake for all sorts of things they don’t need to slow down for: Speed bumps. Curbs. Cyclists. Hyundais. It’s inexplicable."

Ahh, springtime. The wonderful season each year that brings us blooming flowers, and gorgeous sunshine, and warm temperatures, and potholes the size of cargo elevators.

“Groovy Jazz Organ”: Your Thursday productivity-booster

by Joey deVilla

booker t

Booker T. Jones on the Hammond B-3 organ. Perhaps you’ve heard his number Green Onions.

Miracle of miracles, for the first time in I-don’t-know-how-long, I’ve got a full day with no meetings, conference calls, brainstorming sessions, chats, nuthin’! This means I can get some actual work done, and I’ve been chugging away at it since 7:30 this morning, something that’s relatively easy to do when you have a five-second commute:

The home office. Click to see it at full size.

A home office means that you can also crank the tunes, and I’ve found the Groovy Jazz Organ compilation to be productivity-boosting. Some kind soul has posted them on YouTube, and I’ve posted them here for your enjoyment, whether you’ve got your nose to the grindstone or in a martini glass.

Blatant Lies You Have Been Told About Traffic Laws

by SteveLehto on Car Buying, shared by Travis Okulski to Jalopnik

You are driving a truck, pulling a trailer in which your friends are sitting. You’re barefoot, wearing headphones – the big ones from the ‘70s – and steering the vehicle with a “suicide knob” on the steering wheel. You pull a U-turn and a police officer who was following you pulls you over. Can you be ticketed for any of this?

by Kate Knibbs on Gizmodo, shared by Travis Okulski to Jalopnik

“As President and Commander-in-Chief, I take full responsibility for all our counterterrorism operations,” President Obama said at a press conference yesterday about killing an American and an Italian hostage in a US drone strike on Pakistan. What Obama failed to explain: Why the Central Intelligence Agency is allowed to carry out these drone strikes in secrecy.

Stephen Colbert in a Morgan. Those five words are all I need to sell me on the upcoming sixth season of Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee. Of course, I was going to watch anyway because I really enjoy the show, but this really sweetens the deal.

North Korean defectors undermine totalitarianism with smuggled pirate sitcoms

by Cory Doctorow

In an amazing, long, in-depth investigative piece, Wired's Andy Greenberg recounts the story of North Korean dissidents who have escaped, but who mastermind ambitious smuggling efforts that send thousands of USB sticks and SD cards over the border stuffed with pirate media: sitcoms, raunchy teen comedies and ebooks -- as well as homemade documentaries explaining democracy and the gap between North Korea's official doctrine and reality.

by Cheryl Eddy

Why Did This Penny Sell For A Record-Breaking $2.6 Million?

That's right: this ultra-rare 1792 "Birch Cent," named for engraver Robert Birch, just raked in nearly $2.6 million at a Florida auction. What allows a one cent coin to fetch such a high price?

BMW Could Make A Cruiser Packing This Mad W3 Engine

by Chris Clarke

A recent patent filing by BMW suggests it's bringing back a cruiser for the first time in over 10 years. But the engineers at Motorrad apparently aren't content with sticking with its tried-and-true boxer, so the plan – at least on paper – is to attempt to cram a third cylinder into the classic, air-cooled v-twin configuration. Because Germans.
