David Beckham – Epic fail

August 25, 2008

Apparently hot celebrities wives do not enjoy their husband checking out other women, kinda odd since the wives’ success is based on other guys checking them out! Insecurities for-the-win.

Thanks Denesh for the image!

Foriegn fail!

Stunning photos of the Large Hardron Collider @ CERN

August 3, 2008

The Large Hardron Collider is an immense undertaking by CERN and various international scientist. It is a research project to study how atoms are constructed. How do they do this? Like any child would, by smashing the object with another object.  To be precise, they race protons around a 27km “circle” and observe how the protons will collide & the resulting chaos. A particle accelerator is used to make the protons move inside this ‘circle’.  This project is said to help explain the ‘Big Bang’ which models how the Universe was created.

All the photos can be found here:

Lewis Hamilton – Full of Fail, yet again, this time due to daddy.

July 4, 2008

Cliff notes:

Lewis Hamilton says he’s fitter than Jenson Button

Button challenges him to a triathlon to prove himself.

Lewis accepts at an official FIA pre-race Post Conference

After Press Conference, Lewis’s father puts out statement saying Lewis will NOT compete.

Epic fail. The worst thing a competitor can do: commit to a challenge and then back out, due to daddy.

From FIA press conference as found on Autosport.com

Q. (Ian Parkes – The Press Association) Lewis, if you were to compete in a triathlon with Jenson, are you pretty adept at all three of the events?

LH: So, there’s swimming, cycling and running. How far do you have to go? What is it? Fill me in, fill me in.

JB: 1.5 kms swim, 40 kms bike and a 10 kms run.

LH: That’s not too bad.

JB: You’ve got three weeks to practise.

LH: That’s not too bad. I was just checking my calendar, so I wasn’t being rude. I was trying to see whether I’m busy that day and unfortunately I don’t think I am. No, honestly, the biggest incentive is, if I do beat you, then you’ve got some money for a charity which is great. However, you do have an advantage as you’ve already done one, and I already know that by doing one you’re better the next time. But man, I’m up for it, I’m up for it.

JB: But then again, you have the advantage in a racing car at the moment, you’re in a better car so… It’s pretty even.

LH: OK, let’s do it. It’s a date.

later…Anthony Hamilton (Lewis’s father & manager) had this to say:

“Lewis accepted the challenge like the good sport he is, and in the spirit with which he accepts things,” said Hamilton. “Unfortunately for Lewis, we are withdrawing him from this.

tsk tsk tsk…

Refreshing views from Iraq – Car enthusaists indulging themselves

July 4, 2008

Of course, I would have have to post this.

Link – It’s an article from the LA Times (posted on the Car Lounge) about Iraqi car enthusiasts finally getting to enjoy themselves along with some hair-raising stories depicting the consequences of being a car enthusaist in Iraq. Stories include being chased from Jordan to Iraq, attempted car jacking, among others. Shows how much they love their hobby that they are willing to risk their life to enjoy it and add some semblance of sanity to balance their chaotic atmosphere. Its touching.

BMW M1 Procar Series

July 2, 2008

Awesome video footage of the old BMW M1 Procar Series that used to be a support race during the F1 weekend. In addition to the M1 drivers, the top four F1 drivers from free practice would also race in the series. Too bad that would never happen now. 😦

In this particular clip, they are racing at Monaco.

The cars themselves are powered by a 3.4L mid-engined inline-6 motor making 277hp. They weighed just over 3100lbs. Details on the car can be found here.

The racing series will be re-incarnated for this year’s German Grand Prix at Hockenheim, but don’t expect any of the current F1 drivers to participate.
