It really is amazing how stupid some people are.
Yes, that dude on the e-scooter is nonchalantly crossing five, count 'em, 5 lanes of traffic on I-35 in Dallas.
Josh Weatherl's car dashcam shot this incredible footage of a complete idiot zooming through freeway traffic on a LimeBike e-scooter.
"Bro! What are you doing?!" says Weatherl as he drives.
"Oh my gosh, that is the most wild thing I have ever seen," laughs the motorist as he watches the scooter guy.

The footage was recorded shortly before 9AM local time, and shows the scooter guy wearing a backpack and exiting south of the Dallas North Tollway exit.

After two months, all those stockpiled snacks and days spent indoors have likely taken their toll. If you happened to pick up a few pounds during quarantine, join the club. However, you may be thinking that it’s time — or maybe, well past time — to get back on that fitness horse. Rather than heading […]
Last year, over 43 million Americans hit the road to celebrate Memorial Day, the unofficial start of summer. That was the second-highest travel volume this century, according to AAA, but with COVID-19 fears and quarantine orders only now starting to ease, it’s safe to say this year probably won’t attract numbers anywhere close to that […]
It doesn’t do you much good to come up with a brilliant concept that you can’t translate into a working real-world prototype. Whether you’re thinking about building a home, a mechanical tool or a toy, that’s where the magic of computer-aided design and drafting software like AutoCAD comes into play. The longtime leader in the […]
