I think they just do this stuff for PR. It always garners attention.

This isn't so weird as it is amazing.

DON'T TRY THIS AT HOME! Three guys in a Mercedes specially equipped for speed, endurance and police avoidance broke the record for the "Cannonball Run," an illegal cross-country drive from New York to Los Angeles. They started their drive on November 11 at 12:57 a.m. in Manhattan and ended in Redondo Beach in 27 hours and 25 minutes later. They used an oversize gas tank and stopped only four times during the drive for a total of 22 minutes. They averaged 103 MPH with a max speed of 193 MPH!

Another story that is not so weird as it is impressive. Queen Elizabeth goes for a horse ride in late May 2020 at age 94.

In my book that's like seeing a 94 year old on the ski slopes. Her offspring may be a little messed up, but she's a very impressive lady.

I guess when I am 94 years old, I will only get to the toilet maximum if I live.
Everyone should have the same health as hers)
