Dangerous. Pointless. Even though I have nothing better to do today, I couldnt bring myself to watch the complete videos. God bless these gentlemen.

What a fantastic & entertaining way to grind clutch plates to powder.

By the way, the 350 is the chota Haathi. The Real Haathi is the 500 in my opinion. I would put my money on the 500.

I agree.

But also equally pointless and potentially more dangerous are the Speed Runs, Drags, Stunts conducted on Public Roads not to mention the "Bun Burners" and "Iron Butt" records.

Here, all they could cause potentially harm is themselves alone.

Completely agree with you on that. Have not bothered to view these videos myself.

Leave it up to the vlogging craze thats caught on among the young guns who are trying anything to rake up their subscriber count. I suppose its worked for them.

Default 73,000$ M3 BMW catches fire by incense sticks

Man Blesses New BMW By Burning Incense, Car Catches Fire And Gets Burned To A Crisp :

A man of Jiangsu city of Yangzhou, while blessing his brand new BMW car with incense sticks suddenly led into a catastrophic event and set the car completely on fire.

Within 20 minutes, the manís 470,000 RMB (roughly $73,000) car had been reduced to a mere pathetic pile of iron crisp.


video/click here


Footage taken before the fire shows offerings being placed around the car, a piece of red cloth put down across the hood. The Yangzhou fire department suspects the fire began after the man started burning incense on the cloth.

The car was so new it didnít even have a number plate, according to Shangaiist.

Default Chennai Teenager Hangs Precariously On The Wheel Of A Speeding Bus

Not sure when will such stupid acts end.

Quote:
From Facebook to Instagram and now Tik Tok, people are doing insane things to get more followers. That's exactly what got this Chennai teen in hot soup.

A Tik Tok user uploaded a video showing a boy precariously hanging to the wheel of a speeding bus.

The most shocking part is that the guy filming the stupidity is also hanging by the window of the bus. Soon after the video went viral, the police in Tamil Nadu started trying to locate the place the local bus was plying.

Hope the Police are trying locate the Bus crew who were in the bus as well as they are equally culpable to allow the boy to slip his footwear on Tyre rims. Make sure the actions are well publicized so that this is not repeated.

You do know that "Death by selfie" is one of the major causes of death in India, right?

I see this as a mental health issue and hope all state govts address these seriously with the public at large.

This is not jingoism based on of any belief system or inspired action, this seems to be deviant behaviour by a mentally challenged state of mind. Otherwise, despite public presence, NO sane person would do such antics.

IMO Don't publicise such deviant behaviour, as it will only encourage more of such nonsense just for limelight.

These are tolerated only in India I think. Did the driver see this act from his side mirror and still allow this?

On a lighter side, I think people tolerate all this circus (Recent Punjab Train disaster is another example) because they think it helps in solving the population issue to some extent.

All of this jingoism is supposedly attributed to the ever-increasing narcissistic behavior of doing something extreme (mostly stupid and dangerous), shooting a video of it and instantly posting it online for social media gratification!

What was the bus conductor or the driver doing when they witnessed such idiotic act!

Sadly they don't listen to the conductor, driver, police and the public!! Some years back, the police used to give one on the back with their lathi, both at Chetpet and Nungambakam. Then the public protested that these were kids and the police should not hit them, and led to an outcry on police behavior.

Hey TBHP,

Shot a video on Republic Day for everyone that's interested.

Going to be posting more of my content on here I guess. Took some time to figure out where to post (had to message mods to figure it out, but I think I've found the right forum).

Anyway, here's a "vlog" that I shot... I'm starting to do it more, so please like comment and sub if you're interested!

Skip a minute or two in if you get bored by my talking



Annnnyway, Happy Republic Day everyone!

Did anyone else do anything automotive related/to their car for Republic Day?

Any Thala Ajith fans out there?

If you want to see anything specific, reply or message, and I'll see if I can shoot a video about it!
