I want one!!!

Romanian rescue truck ready to roll...over anything...

"Powered by gas or diesel motors with up to 500 hp, its fully lockable four-wheel-drive system is stout enough for the vehicle to be outfitted as an 11-passenger transport, fully-equipped ambulance or off-road fire truck complete with a 160 gallon water tank.

Stuck in the middle of a lake? No problem, the Rescue can go there, too. It can be waterproofed and fitted with a set of airbags that straps to the wheels to make it float."

Hottest new cars , Koenigsegg one:1

Swedish sports car company Koenigsegg has announced plans for a 1,400 hp coupe that weighs just 1,400 kg.

The mathematically named one:1 will feature a carbon fiber chassis and twin-turbocharged V8 capable of propelling it to 250 mph in 20 seconds and on to a theoretical top speed of 280 mph, which would make it the fastest car in the world. Ever.

I thought this woulda been up by someone else, so I waited...

But Tom Clancy's passed on. Many a page turned from his writing. He will be missed.

Beaver butt goo used to flavor vanilla candy...

Next time you pick up a vanilla candy, think twice. A chemical compound used in vanilla flavored foods and scents, castoreum, comes from the butt of a beaver.

Castoreum comes from a beaver's castor sacs, located between the pelvis and base of the tail. Due to its proximity to the anal glands, the slimy brown substance is often mixed with gland secretions and urine.

Really random as in WTH? Death match: Eagle takes down deer

A seemingly unlikely battle between a golden eagle and a baby deer was photographed by a camera trap set up to capture poachers seeking Russia’s endangered tigers.

The three images captured by the camera cover a 2-second period, and show an adult golden eagle clinging to the deer's back. Its carcass was found two weeks later, just a few yards from the camera, initially puzzling researchers.
