We don't know why anyone would want a self-drifting car, but BMW made one
All the fun of drifting, gone
Ask anyone who has ever drifted a car why they do it and they will most likely tell you one important reason: fun. Sliding sideways, testing your precision driving skills, pushing the limits of ridiculously powerful cars and your driving skills; these are why people drift cars. Which is why it's so puzzling to see BMW show off its new M235i at the Consumer Electronics Show this week. The new 2-series car can drift itself. The driver just sits there. It might be fun for the car, but we can't see the person behind the wheel getting much excitement out of it. Although we must admit, the idea of a driverless BMW competing in Formula Drift is kind of intriguing.

We're still not sure why BMW wants to take away the fun of drifting from humans, but alas they are aiming to with their self-drifting M235i. So to test the technology out, they coined the "Ultimate Drift Challenge" by pitting the car against Formula Drift champ Dai Yoshihara.
This is merely the teaser for the video, with no details of when the actual video will release. We're guessing (and hoping) Dai tears the machine apart for the sake of the entire drift community.
In an animal action sports world dominated by dogs, you have to meet Didga, a skateboarding cat that has hippie jumps and rock to fakies on lock. I don't know about you, but my cat can barely go five steps from the front door without collapsing in fear (and if it's raining, just forget it), which, if anything, makes this flying feline all the more impressive.
Considered by many to be NYC's best homegrown skateboarder, Leo Heinert had a break out year in 2014 releasing a banging edit for TORRO! skateboards followed by a crazy Video Check Out for Transworld before finishing out with a strong showing at the Tampa Am. Peep it as Leo destroys his home skatepark 50-50 in Staten Island and gives Timbo the exclusive on his plans to go pro, only on Dose.
Climbing Mount Kilimanjaro (the highest peak in Africa and the only mountain in the world to contain five different climate zones) is a serious and dangerous undertaking for the even the most experienced mountaineers. Climbing Mount Kilimanjaro only to BASE jump from the peak, however? Well, that's downright insane. Just ask Valery Rozov, who recently completed the first ever leap from "The Roof of Africa", ascending to 17,913 feet above sea level before beginning his one minute free-fall back to camp. If you're a fan of human accomplishment, this one is for you.
