Watch how scary fast a motorcycle goes during a high speed race

The world starts to blur. People and trees and houses and stores are just streaks of colors as you zoom by. The roads become vertical as you make your turns.

Daughter reacts so adorably when she asks her dad to drive super fast

Don't tell Mom! Actually tell Mom because her daughter is so dang adorable that she should be proud that her little girl has so much joy in her. Jamie P. took his daughter out in his 1000bhp Nissan GT-R and fulfills his daughter's request to drive faster to hilariously delightful results. She's the best. Even though… »2/13/14 10:33pm2/13/14 10:33pm
