    Well count me as raging against such nonsensically inconsistent penalties.

    I think that's even worse considering Ricciardo retired in Malaysia.

    http://www.formula1.com/news/headlines/2014/4/15691.html Does anyone else find it unbalanced that Ricciardo gets a 10-place grid penalty for his wheel problem that never became a problem, but Maldonado only gets a 5-place penalty for causing another driver to flip?

    2014 Bahrain GP

    That was one hell of a race. I can't believe the show those Mercedes boys were putting on, but that kind of racing was happening all the way down the line. Amazing show.

    LeVeL, do you realize that for a lot of people, being obese is as much in their control as having cancer? Believe it or not, people don't just choose to be fat. Furthermore, you don't have to be fat to have an unhealthy lifestyle. Also, I'd like you to show me somebody who has had children...

    2014 Petronas Malaysian Grand Prix

    Great race by Mercedes. Anyone else get the sense that they basically chose what pace to race at? Particularly when Rosberg was asked to change his gap to Vettel, as if he just had to turn a dial up. Ricciardo is having the shittiest start to a season ever, I think. Three races of his are...

    I still think Valve and Steam are the greatest things for PC since sliced bread.

    The sanctions currently in place are basically a warning. No one expects Russia to back off Crimea at this point. These are to say "We don't approve of what you've done. If you go any further, very serious sanctions will be coming." There is a large build up of Russian forces on the...

    5 freedoms you'd lose in health care reform

    I've been a fan of how the French have set their system up. As I understand it, everyone is covered a basic amount by a single payer system, but then there is a private market to get additional coverage. Is that correct?

    The same theory suggests that smoke from a fire would have incapacitated the crew, leaving the plane to continue on it's heading well into the Indian Ocean for several hours. Even if the auto pilot wasn't on, these planes are designed to be stable and stay level without input, so it isn't...

    Doesn't seem like a strong reason. Every country in Europe has a history of being invaded, Russia isn't alone there.

    I think the general public is bewildered that planes don't have GPS systems that constantly monitor where they are. People figure that since they can find out where they are at any time with a simple tap on their phone, that it is just as simple for finding a plane. Furthermore, this really...
