Real Toys For Big Boys – DigThis

If you or I complain, will we get that same VIP treatment? I doubt it. If you still think the TSA is all about preventing terrorism, you should think again. They are simply putting on a show, in order to justify their existence. You should read read Penn’s entire story on Penn &

Impossible Motorcycle Jump

Robbie Maddison achieves the impossible, jumping his motorcycle to the top of the Arc de Triomphe at the Paris Las Vegas on New Years Eve. The truly unbelievable part is when he rides the bike back down.
