We see a lot of motorcyclists riding around in regular street clothes, nothing but hopes and dreams protecting them from nasty road rash should things get tumbly.

Cool Visualisation Reveals How The Number Pi Looks

Cristian Ilies Vasile has created the coolest visualisation of Pi I’ve seen. First he divided a circle in 10 segments, from 0 to 9.

The final illustration is beautiful.

Monster Machines: This Utility Truck Can Exterminate A Pothole Every 120 Seconds

Getting crews out to patch roads is sometimes more trouble than its worth. It snarls traffic for hours at a time, costs counties and states hundreds of thousands of dollars annually, and typically only fixes the problem for a short time.
