This *might* be a bit of a stretch... maybe?
For The Matrix Reloaded (2003), General Motors donated over 100 cars to the production. All of them were destroyed in the filming of the epic car chase. Most of which was filmed on a fake 1.5 mile stretch of road that was built from scratch on a former navel base for $2.5 million.

[DISCUSSION] A reminder to all guitar players, don't forget to warm up and stretch before and after every playing session, and don't exaggerate!
Also stay really relaxed, when playing high gain you can play really lightly and still get a compressed sound, it's not supposed to hurt! Make pauses every 30-45 minutes of playing, so even after 6 hours of playing you don't get injured. Don't exaggerate in finger strength training, if you do them too much they hurt a lot. Move your fingers less and have less tension in them, if you can only play a song while you are tensed you should slow down and learn it the proper way, relaxed.
I am saying this because I didn't follow these advices and had to quit playing for a few months, get corticoid injections, therapy and a ton of medicines, to the point where I couldn't even hold things with my hands and had no strength in them at all, and every night I couldn't sleep because of so much pain in the upper body. It sucks, goddamm is it depressing. Avoid that, play wisely and safely.

PSA: weight loss and stretch marks
I’ve been seeing a lot of new moms posting their back to pre-baby weight body pictures up here and I remember when I was pregnant they made me so anxious, not inspired at all. A lot of them talked about the great diet they were following afterwards, but not all. I just want to impress upon people looking at these that for the most part that weight loss is random and genetic. I know people who ate terribly and were almost immediately back to their pre-baby body and I know people who calorie counted and exercised and they held onto the weight for a long time. I just want to say that either one is fine. Much like how stretch marks are mostly genetic, even though there are a thousand products out there to fix them, this post baby weight loss may not be something you can control as much as you want to either. Of course you can influence it, and I hope that those posts give people hope, but I don’t want anyone to feel like a failure if they’re not losing weight right away because it’s likely

I will stretch your Colon-ies
First time wearing a crop top since having my daughter. It's taken a lot to wear anything showing any amount of torso or belly since I have a fair amount of stretch marks.
Almost 2 years of growth and it still short unless I stretch it 🤷🏽♂️. Not as fierce as y’all but....
LPT: Make it a point to stretch every day, even if it's just 5-10 minutes. Doing so will help prevent a lot of "old people" body aches and pains.
I don't care what the context is, stretching applies to everything. Stretching not only reduces the risk of injury but also increases quality of life by improving posture and decreasing muscle tightness.
Going to do some physical activity? Do some dynamic stretches (with movement) to get muscles warmed up.
Just finished physical activity? Static stretches (regular stretches they teach you in gym class) will prevent muscles from being tight.
Been sitting on your ass the entire day (cause of work OR laziness)? Stretching will offset the negative effects of whatever bad posture you had, and will help increase blood flow.
Feeling body aches and pains? Stretch it out. Most likely muscle tightness.
Make stretching a part of your daily routine, like flossing. It's one of those things that you won't realize the benefits of doing until you stop doing it after having done so for months.
Just like compound interest, the earlier you start taking advantage of it, the sooner you'll be able to

I've been working on squaring my hips since last week, after feeling stuck for about 2 months i decided it was time to try different things and each stretch feels so much better now!
Its TOTALLY NORMAL for a woman to have stretch marks on her body.
I am 23 male. I just want guys to understand it’s completely normal for ladies to have stretch marks on any of their body part. There’s nothing wrong in it. It’s natural. I don’t know why is there such a taboo about stretch marks and women are made fun of. I have seen multiple guys having stretch marks on their body but nobody is pointing out that.
So men out there stop being an asshole about it and try to focus on other important aspects in the women you are dating/interested in.

Should you stretch sore muscles?
Exactly the title. I always want to stretch a lot when I'm sore from a workout but I've heard some people say you shouldn't?
For those who have been following...I'm on day 9. Still cloudy, but color is way better and I can see about 6 feet down. Really hope I'm on the home stretch.

Tiny little 1g holes! I can't wait to stretch up. I feel like this is such an Awkward size !
Only 5 currently-active players have ever hit .400 over a 60-game stretch: Joey Votto, Jose Altuve, Miguel Cabrera, Albert Pujols, Andrew McCutchen (and the recently retired Ichiro)
I read an article that mentioned that Votto is one of only five active players to hit .400 over a 60-game stretch, and that number seemed surprisingly low to me, so I had to fact check it. It turns out to be true. I had the impression that guys hit .400 over short stretches more frequently, but that idea is left over from the Steroid Era, and it's not the case in the Statcast Era. So while a shortened 2020 makes it possible, it's still highly unlikely.
Here are all the players who've had at least one 60-game stretch hitting .400 since 1990 (for each player, it's their career-best 60-gamer by BA):

In 2006, LaDainian Tomlinson had a 10 game stretch where he totaled 1,664 yards from scrimmage and accounted for 30 TD
From Week 5 to Week 14, LdT recorded the following:
- 1290 rushing yards
- 25 rushing TD
- 374 receiving yards
- 3 receiving TD
- 2 passing TD
He finished the season with 1815 rushing yards, 28 rushing TD, 508 receiving yards, 3 receiving TD, and 2 passing TD.
It's arguably the GOAT season for a runningback. But just for fun let's project Tomlinson's 2006 season as if he played the other 6 games as he did during Weeks 5-14:
- 2,064 rushing yards
- 40 rushing TD
- 598 receiving yards
- 5 receiving TD
- 3 passing TD
If Tomlinson played the entire season like he did from Week 5 to Week 14 he would have totaled a whopping 2664 yards from scrimmage and account for 48 total TD.
That’s a gooooood stretch
Don't know who needs to hear this but you should stretch
Spirit telling me to tell one of you (or multiple) that you should be stretching right now, especially your legs? Not sure who this applies to but thought I'd post it here.
Take care of your physical body as well as your mental body. Peace n love <3
Alaskan purple on the final stretch.
In his 56-game hitting streak, Joe DiMaggio batted .408. In 2004, Ichiro batted .450 in a 56-game stretch.

The Most Underrated 5 Season Stretch in NBA History: A Case for Kobe Bryant
Note: I know my account is called a burner, but this has been my only Reddit account for a few months now.
Kobe Bryant’s run from 2006 to 2010 gets hardly any recognition when discussing the best 5 season stretches in the history of the game. This run gets so little attention, in fact, that many people have even gone as far as to say that Kobe never came close to the dominance that is normally associated with a player of his caliber. Time and time again you will hear people say that Kobe didn’t peak as high as many other legends of the game. I find this claim to be ridiculous.
I have put the following list together in order to demonstrate that Kobes best 5 year stretch is not only one of the most dominant in recent history, but that it can go toe to toe with just about any run in the history of the game.

In Mike Trout’s worst 60 game stretch (by fWAR) from July 1, 2014 to Sept. 6, 2014 he put up 1.9 fWAR. That 1.9 extrapolated over a full season would be 5.1 fWAR.
Mike Trout won unanimous MVP as a 22 year old that season.
5.1 fWAR is more than MVP winners 2002 Miguel Tejada and 2006 Justin Morneau.
