Finding offense where none is intended is a form of selfishness.

When facts change, I change my mind.  What do you do?

It's a poor craftsman that blames his tools.

I certainly did..  and will revive that footage to show CP who was sanely asleep, as I watched TV through the night...

Amazing stuff...    Using Carbon Fiber as structural appendages is wrought with problems..    It is light however..  LOL

It was more like tires, wheels and front end...    Amazing stuff being done with plastics...

Okay, should we stay up or watch it on TiVo?     I'm okay with either choice  ?

Flip the channel and watch the NHL playoffs and NBA postseason instead. You also missed the first no-hitter in Rockies history, right in the middle of Freaknik.

Crap..   And I thought I was so UP on Freaknik, thank goodness YOU are paying attention to Freaknik and keeping me (in Snellville) full of current data.

I hate to see (or is it not-see) the Rockies no-hitter, but I am sure I will hear about it...

Monaco is a very exciting race, a real drivers circuit. and the race this morning lived up to the promise with good weather, and interesting twists along the way..  I won't be a spoiler (yet), and tell the outcome in case folks have TiVo'd the race, it was pretty exciting for those that love it though..

The big boys are in Turkey this weekend..   The race is almost not attended by fans, and tickets for the event are a steal, but I don't want to go to Turkey right now.

I have high hopes for Button or Hamilton, but they race the cars because the outcome is uncertain..
