Although it's most comfortable to cruise around town on your bike wearing shorts, flip-flops and a t-shirt, at 65mph you're basically riding naked! Bikers call the layers of smothering leather, boots and crash protection "dressing for the slide" because they're about the only thing that'll stand between you and painful skin grafts should find yourself bodysurfing asphalt.

Although these two motorcycle wipeouts end happily because both lightly-clothed riders fall well, we hope their close calls drive home this motorcycle safety PSA.

Plan For 'Realistic Fire' Goes Horribly Wrong At School Play

A theatre director at a secondary school in Izucar de Matamoros in Mexico's Puebla state was looking for something "realistic" and dramatic when he decided it would be a good idea to have one of his high school-age actors drop a lit match into a cardboard box with other actors crammed inside.
