Why Did a Tank Cross the Road?
Because Russia

January 28, 2013 | Marina Galperina

Oh, no big deal, it’s just A TANK ROLLING THROUGH A HIGHWAY!!! And the best part, the utter nonchalance of the driver and his passenger. They’re like, “Oh. Look. A tank.” In monotone. As terrible Russian pop music bleats softly in the background. Oop, and there it went. Rollin’ on then.

On the Russian dash-cam forums, this is called…

железобетонное очко – “Anus of Concrete” – a honorific given to drivers who, faced with sudden danger like a huge truck coming head-on, remain calm, only saying “shoot” or “darn” quietly in the background, and efficiently steer away from danger, displaying some seriously fucking great driving skills.
