    Agreed, natural selection at its most basic, anybody not believing in darwinism should just watch that, a few funnys as well though.

    All those bad Russian drivers are why we have so much good video of that meteor impact a while back.

    Looks like the Isle of Man TT - great clip! Guys are pretty much nuts though. 3-10 people usually die each year - in 2012 I think it was 4 people that died and another bunch was severly injuried.

    Don't get me wrong - if they want to do it it's their choice. You just have to realize that they are nuts... basejumping or bullfighting is probably safer!

    Nah, more like one or two die at the Isle of Man TT, and mostly on Mad Sundays when they let anybody out on the track. Most of this footage is from Ireland. Note the group starts, these are not Timed Trials... Still, when they are riding in the rain, you know that all the guys more than three rows back in the group in that photo can't see anything... at 180mph!

    I watched it again and you're right! I just assumed it was the TT because I'm used to seeing those riders there and the track kind of looked similar! And you're right - most of those guys that are killed are duing the mad sunday or other days.... But even counting that the "mountain course" still holds the absolute record for rider deaths by quite some margin!

    And it's that weird combination of awe & fear that has people coming back I suppose.

    Watch the movie "closer to the edge" about the TT if you haven't seen it. Pretty darn good!

    Edit: Also - just FYI "TT" is "Tourist Trophy" but it's a time trial competion. Just so we're clear. :freaky
