    Jimmy Fallon replacing Jay Leno in fall of 2014

    Probably should rename this thread to "Fallon getting his own basic cable talk show".

    US of A Presidential Elections 2012

    IMO, Mittens said exactly what he needed to say to get the attendees to invest in his campaign. My only beef is with this phrase: "I'll never convince them they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives." That line would only relate to people who inherited fortunes or...

    EU: Cars have to have auto braking systems

    Finally the first and long-awaited step towards self-driving cars. This should've been in place by 2000, we're over a decade late. I'm not worried about potential weaknesses of computer self-driving systems. One can install as many safety checks as one wants. IMO the human-driver is the...

    Celebrity Apprentice starts February 19th!!!

    Carolla did a good half hour about Apprentice with Penn Jillette on today's Adam Carolla Show. Basically he blamed everyone else: one of the show's producers who set them in the wrong direction, the editing team and, of course, Donald Trump.

    Guests you'd like to see in Series 19

    I'm honestly surprised nobody mentioned Hugh Laurie, he's bound to do something in the UK, since it's the final season of House. I'd also love to see Ross Brawn or other F1 team managers, hell, they could invite the bunch for a race. Of the F1 drivers i think they'll try to get either...

    2012 Formula 1 Season Thread

    Not too much experience, just over 26 years. They won't sell any Catherams, because there are no decent tracks, no decent roads, and, since it's a track-day car, - not much prestige in it. There aren't any TVRs here either, all those football clubs, newspapers, whole brands purchased by...

    2012 Formula 1 Season Thread

    According to russian sources Petrov's deal appears to be a 1-year with an option, ~$10m/year. Less than a half was paid by his (new) Russian sponsors, the rest by Renault (Lotus) out of the $14.4m they were paid for his 2-year deal. Also rumored is the clause that his results must be somewhat...

    Germany: Nuclear power plants to close by 2022

    No way in hell. They'll drag this thong around until everyone forgets about Japan, then they'll flash the rising energy consumption and rising prices card, everyone will take a look at their thinning wallets and agree to to extend the service of those and build four new plants.

    Anyone tested the patch yet? Steering issues still there?

    I hope other states follow this great example of awesome from TX

    These, surprisingly, are the top 5 things that make me sick, and in correct order. (...and yes, I'm a russian jew with an uncanny ability to catch a cold after 30seconds near the A/C)

    NFS: Shift 2 Unleashed

    I'm using the Geforce 460 1GB OC. It runs everything pretty well, even Crysis 2, the issue is with the CPU, as it absolutely doesn't matter which graphical settings I'm running. The CPU, however, if I unload absolutely everything that uses it (~6% load), i get an instant ~5fps bump, but even...

    NFS: Shift 2 Unleashed

    It's very good, definitely an improvement over the first Shift, it's a bit tough to describe because they've made a lot of improvements: 1. Menus and navigation is faster, more responsive, loading times are better in general, the new music is also pretty good. 2. Graphics and effects are better...

    Starcraft 2 (GSL, MLG, IEM, TSL and all others)

    Some say, if one goes to thepiratebay and types in GSL, one might find some interesting torrents of the GSL playdays.

    Why Jason Dawe got replaced after the first series?

    Probably because Jason doesn't have a passion for cars and everything automotive like the trio does. If you read his articles, all of them are about pricing and 'smart choice for the money', he admitted to buying and dumping a ~$3000 car every year, instead of purchasing something new or even...

    Official 2011 Formula 1 Pre-Season Thread

    There are plenty of drivers on the market. They can get Hulk from Force India, or Heidfeld (I don't think he found a place), obviously Senna is a better choice, he already did a full season, has good financial backing and it will be Senna behind the wheel of a Yellow/Black Lotus again, left are...

    Official 2011 Formula 1 Pre-Season Thread

    Russian quoted Kubica's surgeon, Igor Rossello, who oversaw the 7-hour operation on Kubica's hand, he basically said that next week will tell whether the (re-attached) hand will function or will have to be removed, and, if everything goes well it can take up to a year for the hand...
