You what is crazy about this video? It is the shadow of what I can only assume is a human being walking at the road at 0:46 seconds. At 257mph I would be as far from that road as possible. I saw the Tom Pryce video. I know what a car moving that fast would do to you. » 7/28/14 8:44pm Yesterday 8:44pm

I like this bike! It is a nice idea combining utility and function. The retractable fenders are a great idea, preventing the fender from getting broken in crowded bike racks.

The only thing I wish all these bikes would incorporate is some way of holstering the U-lock where it didn't rattle against something else. I… » 7/28/14 10:35am Yesterday 10:35am

This might work for the older kids but younger kids just slip in and drown. By the time you got the signal that they were under water, got to the pool, located them, they would have already been drowning for a considerable time.

I had my children taught the ISR infant swimming rescue method. My daughter could rescue… » 7/27/14 10:58am Sunday 10:58am

I seriously in all honesty and after reading your comment twice laughed out loud. I mean we use LOL all the time and usually it means we think it is funny and probably mentally chuckled some but really how often do we really laugh out loud? Especially to a comment at gawker? Thanks for the Lol and good luck with… » 7/25/14 7:41pm Friday 7:41pm

I don't want to be that guy but when I read innovative architecture, I am expecting a net-zero building. Something that is using its architecture to not only surprise or reimagine architecture but as a means to reduce the carbon footprint, energy dependence and heat island effect of the local environ. » 7/25/14 7:32am Friday 7:32am

I would love to see them do a street race, Detroit would be a great choice.

As well it would be interesting to see them do a point to point race, similar to the Copperstate Classic. Place strategic pit stops along the way with tires and fuel, and let them run the distance (500-600 miles or so). That would probably be… » 7/23/14 11:58am Wednesday 11:58am

as i recall he blew out his knee or something on that shot. Guy is amazing. This whole list could be Jackie Chan scenes. The jumping on the ferry where he broke his leg, amazing. The stunts in the Operation Condor: Amour of the Gods in the wind tunnel: Brilliant. » 7/22/14 10:40pm 7/22/14 10:40pm

As a counterpart to "When the wind blows" is this short from the NFBC (The National Film Board of Canada" which presents similar themes though less serious and more funny. Still the obliviousness of the couple to the impending doom...sad. Though their end, while no less horrible, is much more happy. » 7/22/14 7:33am 7/22/14 7:33am

Thanks! I searched through the whole thread for this because I needed to post this. I think this is the most egregious bait and switch that happened. You start with a baby porsche. A great idea, bolster the idea without diluting the brand. You propose a sexy spyder concept with light flaring for 914-6 honors and some… » 7/18/14 1:36pm 7/18/14 1:36pm

If I am not mistaken, this is also one of the first carbon frames to be used, as well as Lemond ushering in the use of time trial bras for the time trials ultimately beating Laurent Fignon by 7 seconds using this tech on the last day of the tour. » 7/18/14 12:59pm 7/18/14 12:59pm

The big question I have, besides "cantilevers need back spans" which is more of statement, is who would live in these? I thought the majority of North Koreans lived in abject poverty. Is there this level of elite to support these visions or is this no different than architecture school design assignments where you… » 7/08/14 3:37pm 7/08/14 3:37pm

I regularly take my forester family truckster off road, camping, canoeing and just mild offroading. The main thing they could do from the factory is add some skid plates for the Cat and exhaust as I have smashed mine and gotten the dreaded p420 CEL error code due to that excursion. » 7/07/14 1:31pm 7/07/14 1:31pm

I recall reading an article in I want to say R&T regard a team that wanted to use this tech at Indy too. It was a similar concept, regenerative braking transferring to a flywheel, only this time it was under the driver as I recall. There were also the same concerns regarding a crash at 225mph and what would happen to… » 7/04/14 3:51pm 7/04/14 3:51pm
