The handbrake on the car did not work and he made a "wooden handbrake"
Also watch for yourself its hilarious:

If I remember correctly his car couldn't perform a hill start - so he used that log as a makeshift solution so his car would have something to push against to get moving up a hill

His improvisation actually worked until the log smashed through his rear window on a stretch of bumpy road.

if you perform a hill start without a hand brake you can wear down your clutch pretty bad if you do it often

Eh, not really that much more than starting from the lights, reversing etc.

I was instructed to do it with the clutch in driving school, probably since most cars have e-brakes now.

yes really, if you are on a hill steep enough that you car rolls back quickly, then it would be quite daft not to use the hand brake. I used the clutch a few times on a hill and i could feel the clutch grinding and it was the worst. Yes from a stop light, or reversing is fine, thats because most of the time you dont reverse up hills or perform hill starts from stop lights all the time.

You have to watch the episode. It actually worked as intended up until the point it smashed the back window.

in addition to what the other two said, one of the funny parts of the show is how Jeremy Clarkson comes up with ideas to solve problems that seem good at the time, but very frequently do more harm then good.

His car had a ****** transmission and couldn't perform a hill start, it did actually solve the issue he wanted it too, it just caused another.

I'd say that's wrong.

Early jet pilots discovered that without proper protection, speed alone can, in fact, kill you.

No you've got a point, if we're spinning on earth that's revolving around the sun that revolves around the galaxy that's shooting through space. We're going very fast but our acceleration is whats important.

I assume this is top gear? I really need to start watching this.
From all the gifs I've seen, it seems like a great thing.

Will my expectations disappoint me because of the awesome gifs about he show?
The only thing I know about Top gear is avoid the US version. Is that fine?

Also make sure you skip season 1. If it starts and the Stig (you'll see) is black, skip that season. Other than that it's pretty much pure gold throughout.

Watching top gear is like ******* a supermodel in a hot tub except that instead of a supermodel it's 2.5 old guys and instead of a hot tub it's a blow-up kiddie pool.

It's even more awesome than that (Watch the trip across america in old cars first, it's a good example of the beauty of the show)
