I prefer 7CarCrashCompilation
He uploads (mostly Russian) dashcam crash videos ranging between 5-15 minutes almost everyday

And if I want to get a seperate clip of one of the crashes I always check rusdtp.ru/video

It fascinates me. Sometimes it seems like they don't want to avoid the accident. Is it profitable to crash knowing you are not the guilty one or is it just some kind of lack of self control?

I was walking down the hill here earlier with a friend of mine, when a car came out of a side road at the same time that a car turned in and they hit each other. We stopped walking but it looked like neither car was going anywhere and as it was a very slow crash everyone was alright. So we started crossing the side road behind the crash, me going first. Then suddenly the driver that was turning out of the side road started reversing, as they were blocking the road, but she evidently didn't look in her rear view mirror, because she would have seen me, and she wasn't reversing that slowly either. So I had to run away from her and I managed to get myself onto the pavement, I don't think she even noticed I was behind, even when she went past me.

Just remembered something funny. Back in 2000 I used (coincidentally, wasn't planned) 5 different means of transportation in the same day. First I drove by bus from a suburb of Bern (CH) to the main train station, then I went by train to Thun, then I boarded a ship and cruised on Lake Thun, then went by train back to Bern and on to the Zurich airport, then plane to the Ljubljana airport, and finally to Ljubljana by car. Ever done something so silly?

Car to Newark Airport, Plane to Zaventem, train into Brussels, tram out to the Atomium and back.... No, that's only four.

Car to Kennedy, airport shuttle, plane to DeGaulle, train into the Gare du Nord, mÚtro (lines 3 and 4) to Saint-Lazare, train to Caen, bus to university. Six in one 24-hour period. VoilÓ.

Waterbus from my home to Venice bus station, bus to Venice airport, plane to Berlin, train to Berlin centre, underground bringing closer to my rented home and tram for a few stops.
That's 6 different means of transport in a day!

Mine's six in about 15 hours. If not technically the same day.
Next time I'm going to the Continent I'll fly to Heathrow so I can work a ferry into it.

Too touristic, but most of all too expensive. It costs something like 80 euro for an hour!

Better take the waterbus, which brings 250 people and costs 1.50 euro (only if you're resident, worker or student in Venice)

Here in Slovenia fresh snow begins at approximately 2300 m.

Beat that (when I was in Vietnam in 2007) - around 1000 km:
Private car to railway station (Hue), train (to Hanoi), taxi (to otherside of Hanoi), bus (to Ha Long), motobike (to the port), ship (to island Cat Ba) and another motobike (to hotel - final destination). There was also some walking included, even through caves - and all that with a broken leg.

Ok. I looked at a page where the webcam was placed in a google map, apparently it was misplaced. I thought it was a little too low to have that kind of snow.

Bus to Turin bus station, bus to airport, plane to Frankfurt, plane to Stuttgart, S-Bahn to Stuttgart train station, train to Karlsruhe, S-Bahn and bus to KIT campus. That's 8 means of transportation in one day.

Good. However in my case just the train ticket was bought regular, everything else was arranged on-site with negotiations (with price drops up to 50%) and with no idea what the next type of transport will be or how many transport will be altoghether.
I admit that all this was done in 30 hours and not 24 which was still very fast for Vietnam standards at that time.

bus, tram, metro, train, plane (and then again bus, train, car after that). does that count? that's my usual way to reach El Prat from my friend's house in Barcelona.

or: bus, tram, metro, train, cog railway, funicular - that's the way to reach Montserrat from her house.
