Somewhat unusual to view, with military style and Russian dance elements, ballet like:
The Alexandrov Ensemble (commonly known as the Red Army Choir[1] in the West) is an official army choir of the Russian armed forces. Founded during the Soviet era, the ensemble consists of a male choir, an orchestra, and a dance ensemble.

Ten to One that's Indy. It's certainly not Galesburg, which only has a population of about 30,000 today and is kind of in the middle of nowhere. As far as I know Galesburg never had a track for cars.

Still, can you imagine racing those things? Average race speeds in those cars were 110 to 120 mph, on tires that are narrower than a lot of motorcycle tires are today. The Miller Model 91 was the hot car of the day and was available in front and rear wheel drive configurations. It ran a 1.5 liter straight-8 with a supercharger that was good for between 150 and 250 hp (depending on who you believe). Top speed was supposed to be 171 mph. Personally, I wouldn't try it.

OT: I once interviewed for a job at Knox college in Galesburg. I was their top candidate but I wasn't willing to move from Peoria at the time (my wife had a job there) and they didn't think I would drive the 50 miles each way for more than a couple of years. So I ended up taking a job in Bloomington and drove 50 miles the other direction for over a decade.

Well, I stand corrected about Galesburg never having a track but the track in the video isn't it. Galesburg is listed as a dirt oval, which I can buy. The track in the video appears to be brick, which was my first clue that it was Indy. I've since seen a photo of the early grandstands at Indy and they're a dead ringer for what's in the video.

To me, the info there confirms that it's not Galesburg. Not dirt, way longer than 1 mile.

It's Indy.

... snip video link ...
One of the often missed running jokes (of many!) in Airplane is that the background aircraft engine sound is for a piston-engined plane, not a jet - they either used or mimicked the Zero Hour! background FX. Perhaps as homage?

Airplane is completely and deliberately a parody remake of Zero Hour!, even down to the exclamation point in the title. Character names, dialogue, bad fish, the lot. And it is one of the most brilliant films ever made.

Dramatic footage of a swarm of locusts 'attacking' fisherman in Ninovka, Russia.

The video, captured last month, shows fishermen battling past an enormous swarm of locusts.

According to local reports, huge migrations of locusts have been devastating farms in southern Russia and surrounding regions.

Another How To...
Artist Creates Epic Video To Sell His Old Car

Visual Effects Artist Creates Epic Video To Sell His Old Car, And Now 2 Million People Want To Buy ItFor most of us, selling a used car generally involves placing an advert on a popular website or in the classifieds section of a local newspaper. But when it came to selling his old SUV, Eugene Romanovsky decided to take things to a whole new level by creating the most spectacular advertisement for his 1996 Suzuki Vitara.

Employing his skills as a visual effects artist, the Israel-based Latvian made an epic 2-minute video showcasing everything that his trusty car can (and cannot) do. From driving underwater to visiting outer space and even cruising alongside dinosaurs and featuring in Mad Mad: Fury Road, it’s really not surprising to learn that his video has been viewed over 2 million times since he recently uploaded it to YouTube. See for yourself below. Don’t forget the popcorn!

Tough choice: a 'dentist' who knows nothing about dentistry, or a software engineer who knows nothing about dentistry.

I think I'll take the latter.

She's a cutie, for sure. She was six weeks premature and the zoo enlisted the help of the staff from the local hospital premie specialists. It was touch and go initially, but once she reached the age where she actually should have been born she hit every milestone as far as her abilities and weight.
