And the pic is fake. The hellicopter is so small and the bridge so big, that is photshopped or so.

A Pennsylvania state police helicopter had to be used today to rescue a man who had walked out on the Susquehanna River in Harrisburg. They say he has mental health issues....luckily everything worked out ok.

No, this is not photoshopped- it comes from the local newspaper. The Susquehanna River is a mile wide it's a very wide river.

In the arctic, near Inuvik, they drive over the frozen MacKenzie river and the Arctic Ocean with trucks in winter (Ice Road Truckers, season #2)

I'm pretty pissed off; I went out to make a driving video tonight, conditions were perfect for it and I cleaned the windscreen on my dad's car to improve visibility for the camera, only for the camera's battery to die on me while I was out there.

For anyone out there who's anxious to see some of Sydney's roads, I have to catch the bus to the city tomorrow anyway, and while I'm there I'm going to take a few pictures of some freeways.

And from the side of a bus, so you only see a (shiny) crash barrier.

Don't worry, I won't be taking the pictures from the bus - well, I might on the Warringah Freeway as it's quite a long walk from the city itself just to take pictures, but apart from that I plan to walk around the city a bit and find the best vantage points I can.

<Breaking News>
Youtube just frozen one of my videos due copyright violation. I'm trierd oh some people getting in trouble , but alot people getting away , youtube needs to pull all videos , or none. I watch at least a 40 different ones everyday , like mine. I give credit to original owners , which under USA law unless , ur profiting from the video , its not a violation of copyright laws. i read youtube copyright. what the say is 50 % different then the Law. I'm going to take a 4 week break from uploading!

Radi-like pictures are ones like these...







Don't worry Radi, I'm just having fun. After all, you posted some good pics later on.

I'm not particularly interested in photography myself but I've taken a few road pics over the years so I'll see if I can find them...

Look forward to seeing your pics, Robosteve...

Lol, I never read the rules of youtube.. But why are you going to take a break from uploading, it seems that you didn't do anything wrong?

I didn't from , my prospective , in school ur taught as long as u don't say its your Music , or try to profit off it ur not violating the rules , now it seems they catch when u upload as well. its ridiculous, but on the good news i do know a god electronic musical producer , with alot of good tune, so well see might not be 4 weeks , might be a few days. But some of there rules are confusing , or added without notifying Users. From what i read from US & Canada law , as long as you don't say its and yours & give credit , your fine. I think that youtube is starting over step its borders , & start violated freedom of speech , making false copyright laws, rules that don't make sense , or are put in another format that is more or same content. You might see law suits soon towards youtube, Maybe like in less then a year from an angry person or NA government who finds out their sneaking ways to be against some law. As the world becomes more attached to youtube ,things will come out that will raise the Cyber freedom of speech safety, as even youtube has cracked down on the 1st amendment, with the remove of certain videos!
