As a long-time San Diego resident (almost native) who is virulently apathetic about the NFL, I am officially not rooting for the Bolts. But I do enjoy chuckling about all the angry fans around here who are stuck with lightning bolt tattoos or closets full of jerseys.

I haven't checked this thread for quite a while. It seemed to be 90% injury videos: bad ideas gone wrong, sports crashes, not paying attention, etc. (EDIT--maybe there's an animated gif thread that I've confused with this video thread?)

The thread is way better now, with actually funny or interesting videos.

Just in time for hurricane season: Weather Channel Drama. Heh.

Steam Engines!


4014 was rebuilt and now is running again. Another video:

Union Pacific, Big Boy 4014 and Union Pacific 844

NW 611 was sitting in a museum for 20 years, then disassembled down to the frame, rebuilt, and back running:

A muskie (muskellunge) recently caught and dragged to shore by a bald eagle on the St. Croix river in MN. One powerful bird owning a very powerful fish. For those not in the know, muskies range from 15-50 or so pounds. The record is 70lbs.

I've been following the saga of 4014. It's proof that a corporation can be sentimental.

I posted a music video this Thursday that had the coolest steam engine I've ever seen. Very futuristic looking and fast, but not as fast as the old footage sped up makes it appear. Unfortunately the YouTube comments section was disabled so not info there. Doing some digging on the short glimpse of a name Coronation on the side led me to the correct ID....I think. The UK's Dutchess of Hamilton



See 00.38 - 3:38 on the video

Here's a video of spacecraft Juno in one of it's passes of Jupiter. A time lapse, it covers about 4 hours of real time in a little over a minute:
