Military theme park lets guests crush cars with tanks and shoot machine guns

Welcome to Drive A Tank, one of the only places in the world where civilians can crush a car with a tank.

“We’re trying to get normal people — civilians who wouldn’t normally have access to military equipment — a little bit of hands-on knowledge,” says owner Tony Borglum.

The fun doesn’t come cheap though, which makes sense if you’re going to be driving around in 15-ton vehicles and shooting thousands of rounds in full auto. Packages range from $449 to $3,699 depending on the type of experience you’re looking for.

 

Throwing 1000 lighters in a fire is the best bad idea he’s ever had

Matt from Demolition Ranch is known for his bad ideas, particularly when they turn out to be awesome.

After teaming up with Roman Atwood for a few vlogs, Matt decided it was time to spend a lot of money on a redneck firework show.

After stoking the fire pit with hot coals, Matt dumps in a box filled to the brim with 1000 lighters… and then runs away as fast as he can.

 

Open carry idiot wears ski mask, walks into police station with AK-47, shocked when treated as a threat

C’mon keyboard warriors, we know you’ve been creaming your jeans just waiting for this moment! That’s right, we’re calling this guy an idiot, and anyone with a sliver of common sense will see why.

Is it legal to walk around in a ski mask and carry an AK-47? Sure. Are you an asshole for doing so? Absolutely, and here’s why: you’re only doing it for attention and you’re not helping anyone.

The masked morons defend their stupidity saying, “We’re going to go in and file a complaint because we were illegally pulled over about an hour ago. We felt a little afraid for our lives as we were pulled over so we figured we better protect ourselves.”

Let’s assume for a moment that everything they are saying is true, and that they were pulled over illegally. Let’s assume they actually were scared for their safety and felt the need to arm themselves around police officers. There are countless other scenarios to express your displeasure with the police that do not involve intentionally kicking a hornet’s nest.

Actions like this are a complete waste of police resources and they undermine the efforts of responsible gun owners and carry advocates.

It is asinine to condemn anti-trump or black lives matter protesters on one hand and then praise “open carry activists” like this idiot. Protests that promote fear and panic are counter productive. Yes, freedom to protest should be protected in this country, but be aware that if you act like an asshat you’re going to get called out for it.

Just be honest with yourself, you’re not an “open carry activist.” If you do crap like this you’re not fighting for gun rights, you’re looking for some way to legitimize your personal disdain for law enforcement. Heck, your disdain may even be justified! But, please just stop flying the banner of “fighting to protect the 2nd amendment” to validate your pouting.

It wasn’t that long ago that officers in Dallas, Texas and Baton Rogue, Louisiana were ambushed and killed by people who took their disdain for LEOs to the limit. It is 100% reasonable for these officers to treat a jackwagon in a ski mask with an AK-47 strapped to his chest as a threat when he walks through their front door. The fact that they didn’t shoot him on sight is a tribute to their incredible restraint and conditioning to make the right choice under extreme pressure.

What do you think about the officer’s response?

Modified Nerf gun “Glass Smasher” — Is it legal?

If you’re a fan of DIY life hacks, you’re probably familiar with the nearly useless fact that a smashed spark plug can be used to shatter car windows with very little force. (It’s useless since you need a hammer to smash the spark plug, and if you’ve got a hammer you don’t really need a spark plug to break a window!)

This trick has been featured on countless viral videos, but TWANGnBANG took things up a notch by creating the “Glass Smasher” from a Nerf gun.

The idea is simple enough, bust open a spark plug, glue the pointy bits ceramic to a nerf dart, and voila.

This thing is surprisingly effective, but is it legal?

 

.50 cal ricochet from 100 yard shot hits shooter in the head

No matter how many years of weapons experience you have under your belt, it’s never enough to skip basic safety.

This shooter is incredibly lucky after a 100 yard shot with a .50 cal sends a ricochet right back at him. The bullet fragment strikes the ground a few yards in front of him before bouncing towards his face.

The eerie whistle of the ricochet can be clearly heard in the video before it strikes the shooter and sends his earmuffs flying. Safety first folks!

Bar sets up a wild test for free beer, but one man goes the extra mile

Here’s a quick joke to give you a smile this afternoon!

A new guy in town walks into a bar and reads a sign hanging in the entrance, which says “FREE BEER FOR WHOEVER CAN PASS THE TEST!”

So the guy asks the bartender what the test is.

The bartender replies, “Well, first you have to drink that whole gallon of pepper tequila – the whole thing at once – and you can’t make a face while doing it. Second, there’s a ‘gator out back with a sore tooth… you have to remove it with your bare hands. Third, there’s a woman upstairs who’s never had an orgasm. You gotta make things right for her.”

The guy says, “Well, as much as I would love free beer, I won’t do it. You have to be nuts to drink a gallon of pepper tequila and then get crazier from there.”

But as time passes and the man drinks a few, he asks, “Wherez zat teqeelah?”

He grabs the gallon of tequila with both hands and downs it with big slurps, tears streaming down his face.

Next, he staggers out back and soon all the people inside hear the most frightening roaring and thumping, then silence.

The man staggers back into the bar, his shirt ripped and big scratches all over his body. “Now,” he groans, “where’s that woman with the sore tooth?”

Disturbed cop attacks repo man, gets taken down by fellow officers

A New Mexico State Police officer has resigned after attacking a repo man attempting to repossess his car.

Former officer Charles Vernier was arrested and charged with aggravated battery and interference with a police officer after his fellow officers were called to a disturbance at his residence. When the arresting officers arrived on scene, Vernier had the repo man held in a choke hold. At the time of his arrest, Vernier was already on paid suspension while State Police conducted an investigation to see if he was ‘mentally competent’ to serves as an officer.

Vernier alleges that the repo man shoved him while he was attempting to retrieve his anxiety medication from his vehicle. . Vernier has suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder since responding to an accident that resulted in the death of a child he knew.

Vernier held the man in a choke hold for more than 8 minutes claiming that he was ‘restraining him’ for assault. When police officers arrived, Vernier assumed they were coming to provide him back-up. Threatening him with tazers, the officers demanded Vernier release his hostage. Incredulous, Vernier demanded that they handcuff the repo man, but the officers wouldn’t budge. When they attempted to place Vernier under arrest he attempted to flee. Vernier tripped and fell where he was quickly handcuffed and arrested. Although the entire encounter was caught on video, Vernier insists that he was simply walking away and that the fellow officers used ‘excessive force’ causing him to fall on the ground.

There is no video evidence to support Vernier’s claim that the repo man assaulted him first, and no eyewitnesses have supported his claim. The repo man was not arrested.

In an interview with Action 7 News, Vernier said that he has resigned to take better care of his mental health. “It’s time to concentrate on my mental health and getting to a better state in life. It was a hard decision to make, but I have been going through some mental health counseling for the last several months and I really need to focus on that.”

Why you should never put a lithium battery in a hydraulic press

The world has gone crazy for hydraulic press videos, and we couldn’t be happier.

There’s something oddly satisfying about watching random household items being flattened into wafers, particularly when they explode.

The amateur scientists/machinists at Experiment at Home have decided to see what happens to a battery in a hydraulic press.

The standard AAs and 9Vs just get flat, but the lithium batters put on a real show!

 

Doctor sends old man home with a tough request, when he returns the doctor can’t stop laughing

An 85-year-old man had to do a sperm count for his physical exam. The doctor gave the man a jar and said, “Take this home and bring back a sample tomorrow.”

The next day, the 85-year-old man reappeared at the doctor’s office and gave him the jar, which was as clean and empty as on the previous day.

The doctor asked what happened, and the man explained…

“Well, doc, it’s like this — first I tried with my right hand, but nothing. Then I tried with my left hand, but still nothing. Then I asked my wife for help.

“She tried with her right hand, then with her left, still nothing. She tried with her mouth, first with the teeth in, then with her teeth out, still nothing. We even called up Arleen, the lady next door, and she tried too, first with both hands, then an armpit, and she even tried squeezin’ it between her knees, but still nothing.”

The doctor was shocked. “You asked your neighbor? Good heavens!”

The old man replied, “Yep, none of us could get the jar open.”
