  • Russian Driver Captures Tornado's Destruction on Dashcam

    Car crashes happen all the time due to extreme weather. And a lot of people face death, straight in the eye, and live to talk about it. But there's no way to describe this video other than "miraculous." 

    During a full-fledged tornado in Bashkiria, Russia, a man driving   evades death by a narrow margin — and it's all recorded on his trusty dashcam. Dashcams are extremely popular in Russia, where millions of drivers use them for surveillance and evidence in court, as well as a precautionary tool against police corruption or insurance fraud. Unfortunately, you can't prosecute Mother Nature or any sort of god for  this  unspeakable act.

    After the man reverses his Toyota RAV4 from his driveway onto a rural road, things go from calamitous to chaotic with rain and wind picking up vigorously. At full force, the tornado destroys all the property in its path. As the man alters his direction to face his home, his garage is whipped away right before his eyes — it's gone within 60 seconds. One can only speculate on what the man is feeling and thinking.

    The  just might be "The Best Damn Band In The Land," a moniker it often gives itself. This past weekend at halftime during the Buckeyes' first home game of the college football season, against Virginia Tech, the 225-member marching band paid tribute to cable network TV Land. Even though the Buckeyes lost the game to the Hokies 35-21, the band still scored — bigtime.

    The OSU marching band turned out classic TV theme songs, incorporating its all-brass and percussion sounds as well as its highly stylized visuals, which are best viewed from what some might consider "crappy seats" in the higher nosebleed sections.

    Commenters on YouTube are huge fans. One person wrote, "Never ceases to amaze me," while another added, "That was amazing. More exciting than football itself! That takes a lot of training for sure! Great job, Buckeyes!"
