Back in my day, you had to work for your video games, dagnabbit. You had to grind, grind, grind through dozens of races just to buy your first turbo kit. And once you bought it, you had to trudge through the snow, uphill both ways, to pick it up. With wired controllers! Oh, don't even get me started on these wireless… » 6/24/13 4:45pm 6/24/13 4:45pm

I love complete and utter bullshit like this. "We think our system is better. And, since it's not like capitalism is an economic system that is, by its very nature, designed to allow the best systems and products to flourish, I think we need the government to step in here and make sure everyone knows our system is… » 6/24/13 4:19pm 6/24/13 4:19pm

Just being ground zero for the sodomite marriage brigade wouldn't be enough. And being in the center of the sodomite marriage brigade just wouldn't do either. No, it's got to be ground central. That's how you know it's srs bsns. » 6/24/13 11:20am 6/24/13 11:20am

Awesome. A device that allows me to affix my carbonated beverages to the parts of bicycles that absorb all road vibrations? That sounds like a perfect idea, and I'm absolutely sure there can be no downside to this whatsoever. » 6/24/13 7:26am 6/24/13 7:26am

Hey... wait a minute. You answered with an informed, rational, and measured opinion, you offered evidence for said opinion, and you managed to do all of that without either explicitly or implicitly insulting Dan Brown. » 6/20/13 4:19pm 6/20/13 4:19pm

No offense, and understand that I agree with you in an objective sense, but this entire thread is kind of like looking at NORAD's Santa Tracker and then debating whether he's really taking the most efficient route to circle the globe. » 6/20/13 12:34pm 6/20/13 12:34pm

I'm at a loss with this one... at least Boeing's blended wing looks like it should be able to fly. This thing looks like a goofy caricature of an airplane from a children's cartoon. Ignoring all of the practical passenger-safety and logistical issues you point out, how in the hell does it stay airborne? It's… » 6/20/13 4:46am 6/20/13 4:46am

I thought the CSL didn't have the option for a full manual, it only came with the semi-automatic doohickey, while the CS had a clutch. That and I always thought the CS was kind of like almost a CSL, without going quite so insane in the name of saving weight... compromising a touch of performance of the CSL for a bit… » 6/19/13 4:38pm 6/19/13 4:38pm

I hate to say this, but I really wish cops would crack down on bicyclists. Far too often I see people riding against traffic, ignoring stop signs/lights, and generally being asshats on bikes. Just yesterday I had to slam on my brakes when a biker zoomed through a four-way stop about five feet in front of me. The big… » 6/19/13 9:25am 6/19/13 9:25am
