    "Greetings From Nashville, the New L.A."

    For those unfamiliar with the lyrical reference (which would be most of you), I present Jason and the Nashville Scorchers, circa 1986:




    So, what do we have now, with the influx of 100 yankees per day for the last several years?

    This.

    Man causes stir on top of car at 70 mph from Mt. Juliet to Nashville down I-40


    A man riding on top of a car at a high rate of speed in Mt. Juliet and Davidson County down Interstate 40 created quite a stir Thursday.

    The unknown man sat on top of the car on I-40 at speeds that were estimated at 70 miles per hour at around 3:50 p.m., onlooker Bobby Reynolds said.

    “He was smiling and giving a big thumbs up. I just couldn’t believe it,” Reynolds said.

    The man was seen laying down on his stomach down on Mt. Juliet Road and then on the I-40 ramp before getting on the interstate according to social media posts.

    Errrr... yeah. Sorry. This crap didn't happen when it was just beered-up rednecks around here.

    I give it an 80 - it's got a good beat and you can dance to it.

    Wait....the car thing. Well, the physics are interesting.

    According to local news reports, at some points, this guy was actually standing up on the roof of the car during this ride.

    For context: this is balls-to-the-walls commuter central. I 40 there is like six lanes wide and in the morning speeds of 80+ MPH are not only common, but expected. This stunt was Hollywood-level stuff. By a beered-up loon and his girlfriend who thought it would be a good idea.


    I'm pretty sure that there were illicit pharmacological substances involved.
