Brains! A Cure For Dead

Cure for Dead BannerEarly last week I came across a YouTube video for a new web series about zombies called “A Cure for Dead”. I watched the first episode and wasn’t entirely convinced, but it seemed okay.

Then during my lunch break today, I decided to watch the new episode which came out at the end of last week. I can honestly say I’m pretty psyched for the new one, although hopefully it doesn’t take almost 2 months like the previous one.

Time alone will tell how well this will do…

 


Insanity

When I was a lil kid I always played with Hot Wheels cars. I used to put those cars through hell, ramping them out of windows and all sorts of random insane stuff.

Today I came across the video of Team Hot Wheels breaking the world record of longest jump. Top Gear USA Host Tanner Foust took a 850bhp custom-truck, down a 100ft high, 1500ft long ending it all off by ramping off a 16ft ramp. It was like something out of my youth!

Here’s the record part though, he managed to take it 332ft, breaking the previous record by 31ft. Okay I’ll admit now that I was just too lazy to work out the rest, but 332ft is just short of 102 metres for us folk who use the metric system.

Anyway, I  just wanted to share these videos of the jump and the behind the scenes clip
