  1. I was on holiday so missed most of the coverage and the race. What did Nico do?
  2. Well, I am not sure how you got any of that from what I said, I don't think I have actually stated what I deem to be acceptable or unacceptable, as such. What I said was I don't think it's right to insinuate that society deems people who are not as mentally proficient as others to be morally unacceptable. If it is your opinion, that is fine, it's your opinion, but I think it is wrong to suggest that society as a whole thinks it is morally unacceptable too.
  3. Was this in response to my post or Jem's?
  4. Hang on there, since when is being not as mentally developed as others become morally unacceptable in today's society? I thought today's society was supposed to be more tolerant and more learned with regards to such issues? I remember one of Rick Gervais' stand up routines where he says it annoys him that everyone talks about how supposedly stupid David Beckham is, yet nobody questions how well Stephen Hawking plays football. Crude, but you get the point. Just because somebody has a talent for sport, doesn't automatically make them socially and mentally adept in the spotlight, quite often, the opposite is true.
  5. Yes, that is what I am saying and that's fair enough. However, there is no 'aren't like the pictures show', because everybody sees things differently, so there is not one predominant opinion for the person to change. Also, there is no point, because people will see and believe what they want based on the their own pre-conceived subjective opinions. For example, what could Lewis do that would change your opinion now?
  6. It's actually 62 pictures before there is a topless one of Lewis and even then it's side on, showing the tattoo on his arm. Fernando Alonso - 64 pictures, posing on a yacht with some gorgeous bikini clad girl. He probably bought the yacht just to rub our noses in it, ungrateful F1 driver that he is. Mark Webber - 27 pictures and that's not even to show a tattoo. Man he really is one attention grabbing show off. So google conclusively shows that Webber is the worst of the whole lot of them and he is not even in F1 anymore! By the way, that's if you ignore the headings on the top of google's image search for the recommended suggestions, like tattoo, for example, if not, then Alonso is exactly the same as Lewis, as in the 4th picture in. I say it in jest, but the point is, you will interpret stuff like that the way you want to and people see things differently, at the end of the day.
  7. Not at all, doesn't bother me in the slightest if you are hating on Lewis, you can hate whoever you feel like hating, the person is irrelevant, the actions are the relevant point. It just makes me laugh that people spend so much time following people they supposedly hate. I don't spend that much time following people I like, let alone people I don't like. It seems like a complete waste of time to me and seems to fuel your hate even more.
  8. It seems like a lot of people spend a lot of time looking at Sh#te about people they don't like I could even make that into a rap. I can't afford the 1kg chain, though
  9. Yep, I played GP2, GP3 and GP4, they are on the shelf in front of me, in fact, but I never got into any of the sequels as much as I did the first Grand Prix game he did. I think possibly the first Crammond game I played, though, was Stunt Car Racer, but I don't think I got into that very much.
  10. Pole Position on the Atari 400. I have no idea what you will make of that if you think the graphics are ancient on GP2! I was pretty good at Geoff Crammond's first Grand Prix game. I used to have to mod it just to make it harder for me to beat the computer, I used to play it that much. Not really played too many racing games since then, but Grand Prix Legends was pretty good, although I never spent the same time on it.
  11. I have never seen a picture of Lewis with his shirt off. Then again, I don't go looking for them, either
  12. Yep indeed. I quite like the idea of this virtual safety car if they can manage to sort that out, though.
  13. I suspect that was part of the contract for the race, even if it had been exciting
  14. Exactly. And therein lies the problem, motor racing, especially open c#ckpit racing, is just inherently dangerous.
  15. Yes, I know about the 1dx. However, the reviews I have read have suggested an ev range of about 11 or 12, whereas the human eye has up to 14, but due to the way the eye works, it is more complicated than that, which is why we can register stars, for example, without needing a longer exposure, like a camera. Also, the reviews I have read about it still suggests iso 25,600 is just about usable, but anything after that requires cleaning up, which is what I said about noise in high iso pictures. Nobody on any photography forums I have been on has posted pix from the 1dx in complete darkness, then again, there are not so many of them about in the amateur/semi pro world, I would guess. So, as I said, we will agree to disagree.
  16. I think he had a fair idea of what the answer might be
  17. Well, I would prefer that to closed c#ckpits, for sure. I think it would make it safer, I just don't know at what expense to visibility.
  18. We shall agree to disagree then.
  19. Well, that was a reasonably uneventful grand prix. Not very exciting to watch, but maybe it's what was needed after last week's grand prix.
  20. Surely all that would do would increase immediate foreground light and make anything beyond a limited distance (very limited, unless it is a huge light) appear even darker?
  21. It is not possible for an slr to see more light than the human eye, even at high iso and even with the fastest lens. And by that time, the quality would be so bad as to not be worth it anyway.
  22. I just wish the reporters/journalists would stop asking the drivers if they are thinking about Bianchi in the car, etc. I am not sure what the drivers can say. Uunless the race is called off, they have to get out their and drive. What else can they do other than put it out of their mind and get on with the job.
  23. I was just joking with you and I left off the smiley, sorry, but don't get your knickers in a twist over some forum comments, it's not worth it I will let you in on a secret, though, I think Kimi is great, but I am not a Kimi fan as such and I have never made any excuse for Kimi's performances, he is what he is. It is very telling, though, that you automatically assume anybody who you perceive to be saying something good about Kimi, is a fan. Not everyone can be pigeon-holed like that.
  24. I am sorry, but I have no idea what that analogy means. If something had to be done every time one F1 driver complains about the conditions, we would never have another wet race again. Drives have their own agendas and would complain every time they had an advantage. If we had listened to Prost, back in the day, I don't think an F1 car would have ever seen a wet track. I don't believe the conditions played any part in Bianchi not seeing the flags, if indeed that had anything to do with the incident at all. If the conditions were so bad you couldn't see the flags you can be sure Massa, if not every other driver, would have told everyone by now. The FIA are many things, however with regards to safety, I think they have always done their best for the past 20yrs, even if they haven't always got it right. I don't think they were negligent in this incident and it's rather typical of today's instant-on culture, that somebody else is always to blame. At the end of the day, if you have drivers' admitting that they only lift off slightly under yellow & double yellow conditions just to satisfy the FIA/stewards, then that's where you have to start, because they know that's not should be done under those conditions.
  25. I was not aware Kimi had been Alonso's team mate for 2 seasons already, I thought it hadn't even been 1 full season yet. Kimi won't get slaughtered because he doesn't rile people enough with stupid comments and claims. He just turns up, does as little pr bollocks as he can and goes racing. Then again, I don't really remember too much being said about Alonso's other team mates, except for Lewis of course.
