This is the X-Games definition of the old 'don't count your chickens' thing. On Saturday, an Australian named Meghan Rutledge was about to win gold in the supercross . . . so she pumped her fist while she sailed through the air on the last jump.
Except to do that, she had to take her hand of the THROTTLE . . . which is kinda bad when you're trying to land a huge jump at full speed. So she ate it when she landed, CRASHED, and lost the race. Then she cried.
China has gotten a TON of rain over the last few weeks. And if you haven't seen it yet, there's a video of a car getting nailed by a crazy MUDSLIDE while it's driving down the road.
It's mud and rock pouring down on the car for about ten straight seconds, but somehow all four passengers survived it.
There's surveillance footage of the high-speed train derailment that killed 80 people in Spain on Wednesday. And it's pretty crazy, because it's from a security camera right next to the track, and the train is coming TOWARD it. Then it takes out the camera.
It's still not clear at this point, but the early indications are that the crash WASN'T caused by a technical error, and may have been caused by HUMAN error.
When it crashed, the train was going around a bend where the suggested speed limit is 50 miles per hour. But the train was going closer to 120 miles per hour.
And last year, the conductor posted a message on Facebook BRAGGING about how fast he could go. He also posted a photo that showed the train's speedometer hitting 200 kilometers per hour . . . or about 125 miles per hour.
