    I smelled some sarcasm in 17D's post. I also think that F1 in general is so fully woke, that it appears they've also taken some amphetamines. Lastly, they are still hypocrites. If they're really worried about racism, they would cancel races in China, some middle-east, and eastern Europe. It's all pretty hilarious watching them try to jump on the proverbial band-wagon. It's a little like thinking Valtteri Bottas is synonymous with hip-hop.
  2. I don't know, it seems alot like the Wall St. 99% thing from a few years back. The faces [sic] are the same. Here's an interesting take on it: https://youtu.be/O-253uBJap8?t=32
  3. Pandemic Blamed for Plane Crash "The pilots of a Pakistan airliner that crashed last month were having a discussion about coronavirus while preparing for their first failed attempt to land, the country's aviation minister has said." Interesting bits cherry-picked by me: Crew continues COVID discussion, leading to this on final: 10nm - Gear Down 5nm - Gear Up Engines make runway contact on their gear up attempt "They dismissed warnings from air traffic controllers and 'started discussing corona again'" Both engines fail during the Go Around 1/2 mile short - no power - aircraft stops flying. Some quotes: 'Corona was dominant over their mind. Their family was affected.' 'Several warnings and alerts such as over-speed, landing gear not down and ground proximity alerts, were disregarded,' "He said: 'It was pointed out the pilots were busy talking about corona, and that they may have overlooked a few things.'" "...there was no technical fault, and that the pilots were not 'focused" because of the pandemic.'" https://news.sky.com/story/pilots-in-pakistan-plane-crash-were-distracted-by-coronavirus-worries-minister-says-12014041
  4. Hope they go through with it. Sorry regular folks in Minneapolis, but I want to get my popcorn and watch your city self-destruct. We can then all learn from this idiocy.
  5. You're right, this is right out of any of Heinlein's books. Funny, when I read them, having the spacecraft land on it's *ss seems so 1950's, but it works!
  6. Mods... Perhaps it's time to break this discussion out into its own thread?
  7. I don't want to be the "another video guy," but this (short) double landing from 2018 has some entertainment value:
  8. The look, feel and sound of the Vette makes this = no-contest.
  9. Launch at 4:30pm EDT today (27MAY):
  10. My conclusion is that I will not worry at all when I am outdoors. Please stop the madness (outdoor madness).
  11. Outdoors? WSJ article, sheds some light (maybe). Should You Wear a Mask When Exercising Outdoors?
  12. Okay, I had set my standards too low (as usual). But I did get the angry part right.
  13. Doesn't he have a semi-hot, but angry looking sister (one of the siblings who wasn't assassinated)? She could be ready to rock and roll!

    There is https://f1tv.formula1.com/ . This is the official Formula one outlet, and you can watch past races, and other features in hi-def. Most of the commentary from the races is from SKY Sports, so not too bad. I think the plans start at $29.99/year There is the unreliable bit-torrent too.
