Suckmaster Burstingfoam: Pribar: Suckmaster Burstingfoam: skinink: Looks like the pilot picked the wrong week to quit drinking vodka.

Trust me, if he's Russian he never quit drinking vodka.

The crash probably happened because he did quit, or at least slowed enough for his blood to ice up,

/thought I had experienced cold till I went there on a business trip a few years ago, they drink vodka to keep from freezing in place.

Where, Moscow? Winnipeg is worse and they don't have to drink all day.

There are colder places in Russia than anything over here, but I doubt you'd go on a business trip there unless you're a door to door caribou salesman....


I will take your word about Winnipeg, all I know is that the shipping company I used to work for sent me to Murmansk to help set up a liaison office there, it was one of the most miserable trips I have ever taken, farking freezing, lousy hotel, worse food, and to top it all off the Navy contract we were working on got canceled after I had done most of the work. so my memory may be a bit biased

Every time I Google the Ayn Rand person I come up with a Russian playwright from the 30's. Why is the left so fascinated with this person?

There are far worse populated areas than Murmansk. But OK, that's at least worse than Moscow. Probably not colder though, they are on the coast.

HotWingAgenda: Pribar: 95629: Why do russian cars have dashcams?

/curious

this is why

My favorite is the one at night, where the car stops for a bunch of guys standing near the side of the road.  One of them walks backward, hops up onto the hood, and does a huge operatic flailing "death".


So much more. MANY cases of trying roll across the hood of a stopped vehicle.

And here's a scary, crazytown video of another car chasing him down while he's in reverse to try and run into him. And you see how intimidating the situation can be as they approach. From what I can tell though, most are either just going to play the person if they don't just run off, or try to sue them in court. They're probably connected to the Russian Mafia and have a judge who rubber-stamps it for them, but a case with dashcam evidence is too egregiousness to rubber-stamp like that.

I just checked... shockingly Winnipeg is colder than Murmansk in winter. Worse record lows and worse average lows.

But they have much better food and hotels.

Well in this case, the problem was failure to run out of airspeed. I heard something somewhere about a lack of thrust reversers?

RandomRandom: logieal: I bought a GoPro last month and have been using it as a dash cam. Haven't caught much worth while, though.

Dedicated dash cams are a lot cheaper than a Go Pro. Many high quality dash cams cost less than $50.

The GoPro is great for what it does, but it has an entirely different feature set than the dash cams. The good dash cams record a continuous loop of video files, they have a button to push if you want to save (write protect) a specific recording, like when an accident happens. The better ones are continuously plugged into a cig lighter and turn off when the car is turned off. Some even save recordings when the sense a high g load. A few have dual cameras, one for front, another for back, both recorded simultaneously.

Lots of reviews on Youtube for any who are interested.


Hmm looks like some are 30fps HD recorders for under $25!!

I don't think I can turn down that sort of deal. But I'd check the reviews first.

Agreed, should totally be added to the 15 minute mega-video that was on Fark a while back....

Wow. Was not expecting that.

buzzcut73: 95629: Why do russian cars have dashcams?

It is my understanding that insurance fraud is a national pasttime over there, so people have them to keep from being scammed.


from what I've read people all over europe use them and not just dash cams but rear view as well.

Starting to make me think about getting one as well . . .

Probably to show the other driver brandishing a pistol at the driver with the dash cam.

Not for the guy in front - he responded early, and to his credit, the plane came in from the side.  Not exactly the place you're looking for a brake response.

That particular camera has horrendous reviews on Amazon, but for $25, what can you expect?

exvaxman: I would suggest everyone get a dash cam. I have one that showed that I entered an intersection well after the light turned green and was slammed into by a bicyclist. He ended up being airlifted to the hospital and has tried suing several times with different lawyers. The dashcam card that the police entered as evidence stops the suits as soon as the lawyer finds out.


Typical cyclist; wants to ignore traffic laws then blame everyone else when the inevitable crash happens.

fredbox: This is why you keep emergency liquor with your spare tire kit.


Well, it is Russia.

There was a story a few weeks back about how some elephants in a traveling circus got stranded outside in Siberia when their insulated trailer burned down. They were stuck out in the cold for a while, and they would have gotten frostbite, except a quick-thinking trainer kept blood flowing to their extremities by feeding them ten gallons of vodka, cut with water.

In other words: "Hey, do we have any redundancy whatsoever in the system for transporting the elephants? No? Then we're farked, unless someone just happens to be carrying ten gallons of vodk--oh, well, okay then."

Popcorn Johnny: I have a strong urge to buy a dash cam even thought I've never had a reason to need one.


I just bought one yesterday. After being the victim of an insurance scam, and being wrongly pulled over for going nearly 20 mph over the speed limit, I figured that the cost was too low to not have one any more.

/Less than $80, has front and rear facing cameras, shock sensor and GPS logging

id like to know too. where do you mount it so it can see your dash (speedometer specifically)?

Lsherm:What model, if you don't mind me asking?  I'm shopping right now because of this thread.

I bought this one. When I bought it yesterday, there was only the one bad review, and everything that he was biatching about was due to him not reading the description and expecting a high-def camera. Look on youtube for samples of video taken from the R300, quality seems fairly decent to me, and I have realistic expectations from it, so I think it should be ok.

Basically, I didn't think having a camera with enough resolution to make out license plates was nearly as important as the GPS logging. I couldn't really think of any situation where it would be critical to get the license plate (The only time I thought that I would need that was for something like a hit & run, which would have to take place right in front of the camera to be able to get the license, which didn't seem very likely to me). My main criteria was to show things like a car swerving in front of me and slamming on the brakes and then reversing in to me (Which was what happened in the insurance scam), and to show that I was doing the speed limit while passing a speed trap while another car which looked very similar to mine drove past at around the speed that I was accused of going.

From what I saw while researching these, most of the people who gave bad reviews were either expecting way too much from a sub $100 camera, or had purchased from a shady seller who sent an used or damaged unit. I bought mine from a seller who had the unit in stock at the Amazon warehouse, many of the other sellers drop ship directly from China. I'd avoid those sellers.

thisiszombocom: id like to know too. where do you mount it so it can see your dash (speedometer specifically)?


With this model, you don't need to have it see the dash. GPS coordinates, as well as speed and heading are logged with the video. The built in software shows a synchronized stream of both cameras, plus a Google Maps overlay of your route/speed. This is all exportable as an AVI file for playback on any device.
 
2012-12-30 04:11:50 AM
Now, I know that in most cases of WTF? on the road, the first reaction is to slam on the brakes and stop the car. But if a giant debris field comes flying across the highway, I sure as hell would not STOP IN THE MIDDLE OF IT. The car that got hit had the right idea: Get away from that shiat as fast as you can!
