  1. Looks like current soft tyres too. Did they post the time?
  2. The story apparently is that Bill Ford Jr, chairman of the board saw him at the top of the list of Ford‘s highest paid employees, and demanded “who the hell is Edmund Irvine and why are we paying him twelve million dollars?”
  3. I’m presumably missing a really fundamental point here, but wouldn’t Honda have had some clause that Red Bull couldn’t sell their technology on to a rival manufacturer when they basically gave them their engine?
  4. It’s a little known fact that PlayStation came about by a typo, and was originally destined to be called PlayStatron
  5. Surprised they haven’t gone for any of that sweet Marvel money now that Hulkenberg is there.

    Those photos are out of the white album, so you might find the others there if you have it.

    I have the Rega P1 Plus, which is the P1 with a built in preamp, since I didn’t have a receiver when I bought it. I know it’s Rega’s entry level model, but beyond more expensive materials, I don’t really know what more you’d get by spending more if I’m being honest. Build quality’s good, the tone arm is good, and the motor is silent. Annoyances are the piano black finish is impossible to keep clean, but they’ve changed that to matt recently, and having to take the platter off the move the belt if you want to change the RPM, which I very rarely need to. It’s not really upgradeable either, but again I’m not sure what getting into the constant cycle of upgrades would really get you other than worrying that it’s not good enough. I’d still like a P10 though despite doubting I could hear any difference with it.
  8. Gene Haas trading off Carl Haas’ good name since 1983.
  9. It’s unbelievably good. I’m up to date with it, having started just before Christmas, and it’s rare for me to watch a show that quickly.
  10. I’m not against it at all, it gave me a chuckle that they were put down for being too small and insignificant so they’ve come back with one of the biggest car companies in the world.
  11. Didn’t GM run some sportscar prototypes in the top class under the Cadillac name? Possibly in ALMS? Pretty funny how Andretti has run to get big brother to make F1 let them play.
  12. Have watched 3 episodes of Yellowstone now, and I think it’s fantastic, thanks to this thread for flagging it up for me months ago.
  13. State of the IMDB average ratings, they’re not going to stop making any of the bad ones.
  14. I caved with a month free trial to Paramount. Strange New Worlds is the only one of the live action nu-Trek that has in any way felt like it belong with the classic series.
  15. That’s pretty good - I had to use Google to figure it out.
  16. Make sure you include a montage of all my fastest laps.
  17. Don’t worry, I can even it out a bit more next year.

    Started watching Acapulco, and it’s a surprisingly delightful comedy - set in a resort in Mexico, rags to riches story about a guy who starts as a pool boy there, it’s very colourful and feel good.
  19. Loved that game, Netherlands really lit it up with that free kick.
  20. I’d ask to what extent and when does the team work out the competition’s strategies, and/or do they just ignore all of that and do their own thing.
  21. Did he also use a d-pad for steering?
  22. You’d be furious if you paid to go there and he didn’t come on though.
