Fast & Furious Nerd Shocks Instructors

Nice teddy bear, nice Nissan Silvia S15.... and nice girl! This girl's got talent! Not only can she act - but she can drive! Her name is Leona Chin, and she's from Malaysia. Leoana is a 'Professional Motorsport Athlete Women's Racing Champion'. Watch the 28-year-old in her nerdy outfit, prank her driving instructors with the ride of their lives...

Fast Fact:
The Nissan Silvia S15 is currently banned for road use in the United States. (Good thing too. Imagine all the drifting everywhere!)
The official reason - because of the US's 25-year import rule, which bans any car that 1.) was not originally sold in the United States and 2.) is less than 25 years old. The Nissan Silvia was never sold in the US (so it does not conform to their safety and emissions standards) and it is just 16 years old at its oldest. That's why a guy who imported one recently faced a possible 20 years in prison with a $250,000 fine. - jalopnik

The Longest Way 1.0 - walk through China and grow a beard! - a photo every day timelapse

Great time lapse/photo-every-day vid by Christoph Rehage who takes us on his journey through China - a 4500km trek that took a year and growing a beard in the process. He started out on November 9th, 2007....

▶ I never finished my original goal of walking to Germany. Instead, I walked for a year and roughly 4500km, passed the Gobi desert, and then decided to stop walking for now. 
▶ All of the distance from Beijing to Ürümqi was completed solely on foot, straight good old walking. There are instances where you can see me in the video sitting on a plane or riding a boat, but those are during breaks I had to take from walking, either to sort out bureaucracy issues or to take care of some personal things.
▶ I had been planning this trip for over a year before I even started, and getting as far as I got was an experience for which I am very grateful.
▶ Obtaining the necessary visa for a trip like this was not very easy, hence I had to go back to Beijing a few times to resolve some issues.
▶ This is not a strict "1 pic a day" video, because I wanted to make it a bit more alive by adding some additional movement. Sometimes during the film you would follow me turn around, or something would happen in the background. I tried to capture these moments to make the video more interesting.
▶ If you liked the music I used in this video, get it here: The Kingpins - "L'Aventurier" Zhu Fengbo - "Olive Tree" 
▶ The core of this project is in actually my blog where I have posted my extensive travel diary, starting from day 1 (Nov 9th 2007) and describing every single day until the end one year later.


Isn't this what police are NOT suppose to do? Chase down a suspect that's speeding through the streets? Good thing no one was hurt and the bad guy was caught...
