RIP. While he's done a lot of good movies, nothing can top his cameo in the Bee Movie!
I’m angry that so many people died.

So, what do you want? A door to door confiscation program?

A full on banning of firearms is a sure fire way to have a civil war. Excuses. Do what A...Jump to post
No they won't, not when you'll be able to 3D print a gun easily in just a few years. Laws keep honest people honest, crimals don't give a shit. Granted by itself it may not have an effect.

Seriously, how does one do that? They will just be replaced with illegal imported guns. Can't stop drugs from coming into the country, you expect to stop guns? I guess it would give the dealer on the street corner another product to sell. Restricting guns will mean demand outstripping supplies. Pri...Jump to post
I forgot about this thread! well the last time I posted was to last years, so a different thread – but same difference.

- George Russell is the real deal and it's nice to have equal drivers in Mercedes. He is leading Lewis but a lot of that is fortunate luck with the timing of Safety Cars. I don't think luck alone explains Russell's position. The radio call Hamilton made at the back of the pack after tangling with K...Jump to post
The tail number on the photo is D-ABPA. According to Flightradar24 it’s a 2 year old airplane. Isn’t the airplane age supposed to start from the factory delivery date?

I thought we were going to talk about something else. Hasn't he suggested that he has a piercing on his privates ? Also, you say he's in the twilight of his career, well maybe, he got robbed of a title mere months ago, I wouldn't call his driving into question just yet. He said he's had the aforeme...Jump to post
Either go to your higher ups, or find another job. I had this issue with my previous employer, a Japanese tyre company.

As for the rest, I'm afraid you're right. Monetizing races seems to have become more important to F1 than the racing itself. We'll soon find out. F1's owners are American. Isn't that the American way? Besides, no doubt the team won't be complaining if they get more money coming their way from the s...Jump to post
I really don't understand the US justice system. How could the Supreme Court overturn another Supreme Court ruling? Shouldn't the ruling be final and binding once it has been made? Also, why the hell would you allow Supreme Court justices to have a life term? Why can't it be amended so that Supreme ...Jump to post
I'm currently reading a book on the L-1011 by Graham Simons and looking through the pictures, I'm quite surprised to see that Lockheed chose to paint the L-1011 fuselages before mating it to the wings and completing final assembly.

If Lewis truly doesn't care anymore, then he should emulate Niki Lauda's action back in 1979 and withdraw from the season. It's highly demoralizing for the team to be working hard, only to have the driver having a couldn't care less attitude.Jump to post
Nevermind... snoozefest. Except that Leclerc's f#ckup and Sainz's curse are now bringing RedBull and VER back in the race for the title. Snoozefest for the lead perhaps, but there were plenty of racing in the midfield, though what's up with Hamilton? Russell was miles ahead of him. Speaking of Russ...Jump to post

Honestly, I just don't get the Americans' aversion towards wearing a face mask. I really don't. After two years wearing the face mask is second nature to me now.

British humour is an acquired taste. I never understood the humour of Monty Python (what's so funny about their Spanish Inquisition skit?) and I find Blackadder to be mean spirited among others.
I do like Mr. Bean though, as well as Mitchell & Webb and Fry & Laurie in moderation.

Three races on I think the cars have clearly improved racing. There had been more overtakes in this year's Australian GP than the last three races there combined!

Malaysia Airlines & the 737. 50 years since 1972, and will continue on with the new MAX lease arriving next year.
It will be even longer if you consider its predecessor, Malaysia-Singapore Airlines. They were the one of 3 airlines that bought the 737-100 new.
They are a flawed democracy. They lack a meaningful opposition, as 80% of seats in parliament are held by the ruling party. Furthermore, the ruling party have in the past resorted to actions such as defamation suits to try and silence opposition, by basically bankrupting them and disqualifying them ...Jump to post
Interesting that Verstappen is able to race with Leclerc cleanly. Perhaps it's evidence that last year's contretemps were caused by the other side instead of the Red Bull?

As we have discussed previously about MH, they need a coherent go-forward plan. Despite the government bailout, I have no idea what this plan is, even though I live in Malaysia.

To retain LHR slots, MH will resume double daily service on June 30th. Currently, it offers 5x weekly service. Seems like a $$ waste to me. Malaysia is opening its borders on April 1.
