Let's be honest, here. Very talented professional drivers called the 917's handling "diabolical". You probably can't drive one fast without killing yourself within .25 seconds of hitting boost (I can't either...even though I spend lots of time on tracks, I'm still far from being anywhere near that good). It has a… » 9/18/14 4:52pm Thursday 4:52pm

Very well written, Jason. The points you bring up are things that I think of pretty frequently. You definitely touched on the racetrack aspect, but I feel like it's something that is lost on the non-track-attending public. I try to get out to the track and beat on my old car as often as possible. The reality is… » 9/17/14 2:39pm Wednesday 2:39pm

The opening paragraph says it all. We're all trying to get somewhere - and I'm no more important than you are (the inverse of that statement is also correct). Let's work together to get there. I won't box you out if you need to change lanes, and it would be awesome if you extended the same courtesy to me. With the… » 9/16/14 11:57am Tuesday 11:57am

There are certainly exceptions, and I apologize if I came off saying that this never happens. It does. But the blanket assertion that all (or even most) departments/municipalities enforce speed limits for revenue enhancement is simply untrue. In the vast majority of cases, speed enforcement is a cost center for… » 9/14/14 4:07pm 9/14/14 4:07pm

I've heard of similar stories (police using breathalyzers at bars and arresting people for public intox). In that case, all citations were dismissed because the breathalyzer was only tested in court for dui/dwi laws, and these limits did not apply to public intoxication. I suspect that there is likely a similar deal… » 9/13/14 8:26pm 9/13/14 8:26pm

Come on, Patkrick. Since when does an asshole choose to be an asshole? The BMW-driving, non-signaling, double-parking, lane-swerving asshole did not choose to be this way. This is a class that has been institutionally discriminated against for decades, and I'm here to say that the time to end this clear case of… » 9/05/14 2:16pm 9/05/14 2:16pm

I'd take this another step further: assholes apply too much cologne/perfume before they get on planes. If you really stink, take a shower, use some deodorant - be courteous to your fellow passenger who did the same for you. Don't stink up the cabin with heavy perfumes. » 9/04/14 3:38pm 9/04/14 3:38pm
