Richard Hammond Crash Video from Top Gear



Watch as the Hamster's footage where he survived a crash from a 10,000 hp rocket powered car, the "Vampire". He cracks jokes before he starts and is quite prophetic.

He completes 2 runs, one at 220 mph and 314 mph, successfully. The official British land speed record is 301 mph.

The 3rd run, where he crashes, topped out at 288 mph. You can see at the 8:15 mark that the left front tire explodes and all hell breaks loose.

As you can see that Hammond had all the safety precautions helmet, neck brace, fire suit, etc and it was performed in a controlled environment.

Welcome back Hammond!

Hayden Panettiere Tattoo Misspelled?

Hayden Panettiere's tattoo is fully visible in these pictures from Cannes. What we can see is an Italian phrase, "Vivere senza rimipianti". This translates to, "to live without regrets." Unfortunately "regrets" in Italian is "rimpianti."

So it looks like Hayden has at least one regret...

Make sure you put sunscreen on that tattoo

Xmas Tree Subway Train Layout 2009

Here is the finalized version of the 2009 xmas tree layout using an MTH Premier R40 Subway set, Lionel Fastrack, MTH Graduated Trestle System, and MTH Realtrax Trestle Set.


Here you can see how close the train is to the upper deck when it has to go under.


Here is the upper deck view of the spiral.


And here is the lower deck vantage point.


This was the 1st version, but due to the incline of the spiral it's better to have the train go down on the steep grade.
