  1. Couldn't resist.

      Couldn't resist them Cadbury Cream Eggs? (youtube it Eric, and then you'll understand)

  2. F1's summer break is ending and so is mine. How quickly that goes.

  3. Don't open spam threads. Don't click the links in spam threads. Don't reply to spam threads. They will be removed as soon as they are seen. Thank you.

  4. This might be the greatest finish to an auto race ever, and it happened just a few minutes ago!

      O for George's sake! They were racing at what? 87.51677754%? What a joke.

  5. Found time for a 5-mile walk today after an outdoor lunch. So pleasant.

      Walks are always great to think about things and clear your head.

      That's pretty deep. I mostly just thought about when it's safe to cross the street and how cliché it is for all the people who smoke to do so right next to the "Tobacco Free Campus" sign. :P

  6. Lost my little buddy to cancer this morning. He loved doing homework and watching game shows (so pretty much everything I do in my free time). Great dog.

      That sucks. Sorry to hear that mate. Stay strong and hopefully we'll get to chat on Friday.

      Sorry to hear that, Eric. It's never easy to lose someone who loved you unconditionally.

  7. Surreal to receive concerned phone calls. A relief to be able to answer them with reports that all is well with the family. I'm sad as a former resident, and sadder as a human being. Close-by or across the world, violence is no abstraction, and its impact is too far-reaching.

      Glad to hear you and yours are OK!

  8. The flowcharts in law textbooks are hilarious. Two full pages, going off in every direction, no way to understand...it's like something I'd write about the ALMS.

  9. Sébastien Loeb will attempt the Pikes Peak hill climb, on top of his WRC, FIA GT, and WTCC ambitions. Tested in F1 and raced Le Mans, too. I like this guy.

      And comprehensively destroyed the Rallycross field at last year's X Games despite it being the first time he'd driven an RX car too...

  10. The new Spotify is extremely disappointing. I wish I had just put my money into iTunes years ago.

  11. The hardest part of teaching? Having to shake so many people's hands.

      That's sexual harassment

      On their part, not mine. They should know better. They're older than I am.

  12. Will have ~90 cm of snow by the time this storm is over. Winds in the 30-35 mph range. Anyone caught driving will be subject to up to one year in prison. Brutal weather...

      I'm sure there's some Family Guy meme I could write here. But I won't, because I'm better than that.

  13. Teaching my first class tomorrow. So excited!

    1. JHS18

      JHS18

      Best of luck, looking forward to hearing all about it.

  14. Hey there, GP Today.

      What? GP 2 Day....next it will be GP 3 Day...Formula Ford Day...and gods be bad...NASCAR Day

  15. I'm going to spend way too much time playing F1 2012 this winter. So cool it got published for Mac.

  16. I can't wait to get 2012 over with simply because there are no more motor races to be run this year.

  17. It's a sad day to call this place home and a sad day to be a future educator. Really bothered by all this. I can't even imagine...I just can't imagine...

      Weird wording...not unfathomable that I feel sad, unfathomable how sad people affected must feel.

      Awful, just awful. I hope Obama seizes on public support for some major changes.

    4. HandyNZL

      Pretty big problem to tackle though - on a scale whereby you're starting off with so many guns out there it's almost impossible to make any meaningful change to that now that the horse has well and truly bolted.

      But...you move a mountain by first carrying away a pebble.

  18. Incredible driving on an incredible track in a Porsche 944 turbo. Highly recommended: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5GRZSU-c3tI

      Was the car legal? Of course not. But it's a cool video.

      That was a wild ride.

  19. A racing off-season without NHL ice hockey. I guess I'll need a hobby or something.

      That's easy. You have one here already, deleting spam. :P

      Indeedy...it's the perfect antithesis to everybody else here...our hobby is to create spam... :P

  20. Spam's gone. Sorry that it was ever there.

      If it's originating from one IP, is it possible to block that IP?

    3. Massa

      Massa

      Unfortunately, each account has a unique IP as far as I've seen, but it is possible to block an IP, yes.

  21. I hate snow, but I love AWD. I'll never get used to that unsettling feeling the wheel being light and your car going where you aren't steering it...and that was at 15 mph...

  22. Baby's first presidential election. Of the 10 things on which I casted a vote, I'd consider it a victory if 1 went my way.

    1. Massa

      Massa

      Aaaaand everyone and everything I voted for lost. I guess I'm not very good at this.

  23. Watch live! Spammers vs Moderators PPV Fight of the Year! The three of us are trying really hard to keep this place clean, so I just want to apologize if anything lingers before one of us gets to it.

    1. HandyNZL

      HandyNZL

      You're still lingering....hehehe

      I did a double-take when I saw that name...brings me back to my youth, when a Kiwi used to post here...

      Oh I've been around...just being quiet. Didn't your mother ever tell you to look out for the quiet ones? :P

  24. Don't click spam links.

      B-b-but...I wanted to watch Ontario vs Calgary waffle eating contest finals LIVE!!
