What's your favorite car rolling over stunt?

Car rolling over filter: I'm looking for movies wherein a car rolls in a spectacular (potentially test-able) way. Or for an interesting or counter-intuitive reason. Think along the lines of the car flip on the way down Fillmore in Jade. Or the Bond/Casino Royale flip of the McClaren. Hopefully even more spectacular.

How do I clearly explain the benefits of a rolling or moving average compared to straight data?

I report on weekly sales and pricing information, and weekly data points are often skewed by one-time promotions, seasonality, and other random effects. When I create a 52-week rolling average of the data, it shows trends much more smoothly -- and accurately, I believe. My coworkers are not accustomed to seeing data as a rolling average, and I'm concerned that they won't understand it. What is a clear way to explain to them 1) how a rolling average works, 2) why it is useful for visualizing trends, and 3) any other benefits?

Walls on wheels, please

Where can I find big partitions/doors/walls that I've seen used in lofts? I'm looking for those with heavy-duty wheels (?) that run along tracks. I want to be able to partition my messy office from the living area, but have the flexibility to roll the wall/door out of the way.

An article from Rolling Stone Magazine About A "Game"

The article was about a game that was played amongst a few teams, almost like a scavenger hunt, insane clues were given and the mastermind teams unlocked them and went on quite a journey. I remember one clue led them to a party with about 40 people and they all turned out to be actors or something. Quite a fantastic tale. It said that these games take place all the time. I'm looking for the article from RS, or a link to anything remotely close to this. Thanks you
