• Who's Jazzed About F1 Coming Back to the US?

    Starting in 2012, the USGP will be at a purpose built track near Austin, TX. For those who don't know Austin, it's not redneck. more like a Texas version of San Francisco. Very green and hilly area. Hope they don't "Tilke" the track.

  • Is this one of the best aviation videos you've ever seen?

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nKU0uQki5... This is an outstanding aviation video from AirVenture (Oshkosh). What do you think? (No, I don't know the guy who made it, and am not connected to him)

  • Renault's One Race Suspension?

    So, now that Renault has received a one race suspension, does that mean every time there's a pit screw up, like a fuel rig getting carried away, a mechanic's foot getting run over, etc., that team will get the boot for the next race? Yes, Alonso drove back to the pits on three wheels. How many times has a driver done in the past. More... show more

Yes, Alonso drove back to the pits on three wheels. How many times has a driver done in the past. More times than I can count. What's next, penalize teams if a car loses it's front wing, and is now dangerous to drive?

  • Anyone Else Tired of the Same US Air Questions?

    The same questions over and over by people too unintelligent to think that 100 other people have already asked the same questions about bird strikes, engine screens, ad nauseum. Do a bloody search!

  • Where is the Charity?

    There are almost a million vets from Iraq and Afganistan war. The VA has a backlog of 800,000 vets seeking treatment. The VA doctors were given orders not to diagnose Post traumatic stress syndrome any more. They can't afford it. Oh, it gets worse. Suicidal vets ask for help and are told they have to wait about 8 weeks before they can be seen.... show more

The VA doctors were given orders not to diagnose Post traumatic stress syndrome any more. They can't afford it. Oh, it gets worse. Suicidal vets ask for help and are told they have to wait about 8 weeks before they can be seen. So they go home and kill themselves. WHERE IS THE RELIGIOUS CHARITY THE BIBLE SPEAKS OF? Where are all the supposed "believers?" Why aren't their churches reaching out to these people, taking up collections so they can seek help? Not some BS spiritual guidance, but real help. Right wing fundie's support the war, but I guess they don't support the troops.

    Here's an interesting philosophical question. In the bible, and just about every other religious text, Satan is called the great deceiver, liar, the one who will lead you astray.

Now then. wouldn't it have been just the most perfect lie, if Satan had written the Bible? Make mankind believe it's the word of god, when it actually isn't? What other document had been responsible for more death and destruction in the history of mankind, than the Bible? Seems like a document of the devil to me. It has done exactly what Satan would want. You can't use the bible as proof of god's word, since it's not substantiated elsewhere.

It might be time to block Yahoo from school machines. Yahoo isn't at all necessary at school.

  • Where Would You Like to see the USGP?

    If the USGP left that boring, Mickey Mouse track at Indy, where would you like to see it go? I would love to see a purpose-build track at Las Vegas. The money is there, and land is there, adjacent to the Speedway if the proper deal could be hammered out. It's already the adult playground of the world.
