How Far Will A Tesla Drive Itself? One Tesla Model S P90D Ludicrous, one driver, 694 miles. Bad weather. Autonomous Driving & EV tech pushed to the limit. A shortcut I’ve been told not to take. What could go wrong?
What records could possibly be set? Safely?
Check in throughout the day at The/Drive‘s via Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat or Twitter for LIVE updates as we brave the storm. Details to follow Monday, 4/11/16. #ManhattanToMotorCity everywhere…
Nazis are the best cinematic bad guys ever. Time travel is one of the most tried-and-true plot devices. That’s why when I wrote Nazi Stargate, I thought I nailed everything you need in a script.
Turns out, I was missing the cars. (Maybe that’s why it didn’t sell?)
Fast Nein: The Fast & The Fürher solves that problem. The script is the masterwork of Jordan Vandina, a screenwriter whose satirical eye is belied by the pun-y title. I urge you to read the script for yourself. Because it’s a certain type of genius.

It’s Sunday, so I must be writing an article inspired by this scene from Indiana Jones & The Raiders of the Lost Ark. Because Swordsman. #Soon Continue reading
Unicycle Jousting exists. I thought I’d made it up. Physics and all. It turned out I don’t know enough about physics. Actually, that’s not true. It’s just that I have common sense. Sense enough to know that however cool this is, it shouldn’t be allowed.
