…Cars and People is fascinating?

Time-lapse photography can make anything exponentially more exciting, so it should come as no surprise that the seemingly boring subject of a parking lot takes on a life of its own when you can watch 24 hours flash by in just over a minute.

Called Cars and People, it was shot using a Canon Digital Rebel XT SLR camera with 15-second intervals between shots at the parking lot on Bay and Edward in Toronto.

…Scandinavians know how to flick?

Scandinavian Flick

If it’s snowing in your neck of the woods, then be thankful, because the Weather Gods have blessed you with a perfect practice space for the Scandinavian Flick.

Basically an easy way to drift around a snowbound corner, the flick is a trick that involves steering away from a turn, and then quickly snapping the wheel back towards the turn to bring the back end around as you power through the corner.

The goal is to get the rear of your car to swing out under full power, giving you increased control and traction, though style points are also an added bonus.

It should go without saying, but if you’re new to the ways of the Scandinavians, then it’s probably best to practice in an open parking lot/field of dreams, because you don’t want to follow your Scandinavian Flick practice with an American Dig Out Your Car practice now, do you?
