    The Trump Presidency - how I stopped worrying and learned to love the Hair

    And someone in Congress was stupid enough to leave a voicemail to that effect. We should have that recording released by the end of the month. This is the equivalent of filming yourself doing illegal shit, posting it online, and tagging the local PD.

    Cheap Bike Epic Trip Challenge.

    I found this for sale in my area: 2001 Aprilia Futura. Unfortunately it has a salvage title, which will hurt resale, but is sure looks fantastic.

    Cheap Bike Epic Trip Challenge.

    Similar to the Top Gear/Grand Tour specials. Here is what you know: This will be a week-long sport-touring road trip. It will take place in a very diverse landscape from soaring peaks to expansive beaches. This is a civilized nation with good infrastructure (good roads) and access to fuel...

    Ineos Projekt Grenadier

    Interesting to see what comes of this, but I suspect it will A) not come to the USDM and B) be way outside the price range of the average buyer.

    No 56k: A thread about ninjacoco's balls

    You can tell the graphics guys were struggling to come up with a photo for that story - but good job guys, that made me squirm.

    Bosch goes for platinum-light fuel cells

    Being able to do more with fewer rare-Earth elements in lower volume is always a good thing.

    The Trump Presidency - how I stopped worrying and learned to love the Hair

    In his press conference - the one that happened before the report was released, the one in which he was very selective in what he shared and how is phrased things to set the narrative of the discussion. If the report was so good for Trump, why would he need to do that? Muller stated that the...

    The Trump Presidency - how I stopped worrying and learned to love the Hair

    I guess it's a good thing you aren't the AG of the US. A government representative willingly misleading the people and congress about the nature of an investigation is corrupt as all hell - the fact you don't see it as such is profoundly troubling, but not as much as the cronyism surrounding...

    That would be interesting to see. I have no idea how something like that would even work.

    Electric vehicles emit more CO2 than diesel ones, German study shows

    Unfortunately, yes. However, they have been heavily investing in clean renewables.

    Electric vehicles emit more CO2 than diesel ones, German study shows

    Modern lead crystal technology has come a long way since the 1970s. They are being used in overlanding for the "house battery" in dual battery setups without problems, if they can stand up to being pummeled off road for days at a time, I think they can handle being shipped by truck, rail, and...

    Electric vehicles emit more CO2 than diesel ones, German study shows

    FCEV or BEV, it's alright to have more than one solution for a particular problem. One thing that would help is to switch away from Lithium batteries for home/stationary use and move to Lead Crystal technology. They're better for deep cycles, can take more cycles, are more easily recycled, and...

    Black Fish Taco. No, that doesn't work at all - on any level.

    MIB is back

    I've seen it before. I guess the advertising guys think that they need a 5 second "hook" to get you to watch the rest of the ad. I must be getting old, but the shortening attention span is starting to bother me. I'm not a fan of most pop music, but there was a story on NPR about how most pop...

    Bond 25 - Possible title “Eclipse” - "Shatterhand" ruled out by producer Barbara Broccoli

    I must be in the minority, but I really enjoyed the Bond films since Casino Royale. If anything, Casino Royale was the one that was silly - Bond has to go gamble the Queen's money and beat the terrorist to save the world? This is the best plan they can come up with?

    Bond 25 - Possible title “Eclipse” - "Shatterhand" ruled out by producer Barbara Broccoli

    A new film. I've really enjoyed Craig as Bond. I've been rewatching some of the Pierce Brosnan films recently and have a new appreciation for his take on the character. Moore and Lazenby remain my least favorites.

    MIB is back

    Looks like it fits into the category of films I call "Awesome-tarded". I will probably go see it.

    Random Thoughts....

    I'm going out of town the next two weekends, and can't see Endgame for a while; so I'm hiding here in the FG corner of the internet to get away from trolls and spoilers.
