Porsche Test Drive Gone Wrong – Joburg Edition

What really makes this video is the running commentary from the boet/oke/boytjie filming the whole thing. At first, you can tell that he’s just admiring the Porsche, but the admiration soon turns to something else way more entertaining. “Oooooooooohhhhhww Maah Weeeehhhd! Thaaht izzaaah SHIT ONE!” I want this dude to narrate my life!

The Youtube comments are GOLD! This poor boet has been called everything from “African Guido” to “DUDEBRO”… but most people think the accent is worth more than the footage.

Honest Trailer For Game Of Thrones

Nudity! Dragons! Death! What more could you want? Actually… i like series without any of the aforementioned, and as a result i haven’t even watched one single episode of GOT… but the rest of the world is obsessed. Either way, the trailer from the dudes over at “Honest Trailers” is amazing.

“The return of “Game of Thrones” is upon us! Watch as we break down the most perfect mix of history, Dungeons&Dragons, and porn ever made!!”

Ghost Towns

I spend a lot more time than i would like to admit looking through pictures of abandoned towns/schools/institutions around the world.

Nature always finds a way in though, and most of these abandoned places have been partially reclaimed by the surrounding vegetation.

This has got to be one of the creepiest abandoned places in the world, because the locals literally left their entire lives behind. Car dealerships full of cars, planes on runways, and even sheets on beds. Due to the violent nature of the occupation, i think everyone left in quite a hurry, and no one has been back since. Access is controlled by the military as it is still a highly disputed area.
