They Motorised What? [Infographic]

Posted by & filed under Infographics.

The British have been putting motors into inappropriate things since the dawn of time. Way back in caveman days, according to a documentary I was watching the other day, Neanderthals were using their own feet to propel themselves in primitive vehicular forms and using animals such as pelicans as buckets and rubbish bins. Come to… Read more »

What Your Car Says About You [Infographic]

Posted by & filed under Infographics.

The question I’m asked most in my life is ‘What is wrong with you?’ the second question most asked is ‘No, really, what is wrong with you?’ I’m asked it all the time by family members, strangers, passing motorists and, for some reason, traffic wardens. Maybe it’s my headgear, maybe it’s the ‘new walk’ I’m… Read more »

What It Takes To Build a Monster Truck [Infographic]

Posted by & filed under Infographics.

Wait, so great big Monster Trucks aren’t the result of a juggernaut getting it on with a camper van? No! Apparently neither mechanics nor nature work in that way. Boy is my face red. Instead Monster Trucks are painstakingly constructed by human beings. Human beings with passion, big tyres and too much time on their… Read more »

The World’s Worst Cars [Infographic]

Posted by & filed under Infographics.

With cars, like footballers, certainly the expensive ones catch the eye, but the truly terrible ones are far more entertaining. Yes, watching a gazelle-like centre-forward hurtling down the flank, dummying four defenders and then slotting home a delicate chip is very nice, but watching a donkey of a defender taking a huge swipe at the… Read more »

Head of State Cars: Cost Vs Corruption

Posted by & filed under Infographics.

Look, you don’t want your Head of State to be wandering the streets from parliamentary meeting to trade delegation, getting dust all over their turn-ups and a big, fat sweaty face, do you? No, of course you don’t. That would be an abomination bordering on insanity. How is your country going to go cap in… Read more »

The Internet of Things

Posted by & filed under Infographics.

OK, so we know there’s an internet. We are also aware of things. But what happens when the two concepts meet? Sheer undiluted horror. Why? Well, look over at some inanimate machine that is in your purview. Let’s say it’s a toaster. Stupid isn’t it? Sitting there serving no purpose whatsoever until we have those… Read more »

50 GTA Cars and Their Real Life Counterparts

Posted by & filed under Infographics.

What’s your favourite element of the gaming behemoth that is GTA 5? Is it the random beatings, the sudden bursts of ultra-violence or the hidden Dido concerts? No, of course it’s the cars! Those wonderful, animated, floridly titled cars. We all have our favourites, with many of us having multiple posters adorning the walls of… Read more »

How To Drive in a Stunty Way [Infographic]

Posted by & filed under Infographics.

The smell of burning rubber. The screech of a tyre. The sight of a fully formed man sliding over a bonnet. Everyone loves an auto-vehicular stunt. Nothing gets the heart-pumping and the palms sweaty than a large box of metal swiftly flying over something it was never designed to traverse. But the secrets of stunty… Read more »

One Day All Wheels Will Be Square [Infographic]

Posted by & filed under Infographics.

For far too long we have had to deal with the tyranny of the circle. To me, it has always been the smuggest of shapes. Once a circle, or to a lesser extent it’s evil cousin the wheel, is brought into play, it can only mean one thing: doing something. Curves are an indicator of… Read more »

Evolution of the Playstation [Infographic]

Posted by & filed under Infographics.

Before the invention of the PlayStation, human beings would amuse themselves by hurling sharpened rocks at each other, building and then destroying large wicker men and Atari. It really wasn’t very good. But then, in the mid-1990′s, a gaming event so monumental occurred that Richard Marx considered writing a song about it. Yes, it was… Read more »
