I designed stuff for the 10R80 X0 builds, moved off the project since, but yeah. We probably have at least been in the same meeting room at some point.

Was recently in Germany for work and get your rental car there if possible. Unlimited miles and by law rental cars are all new. Taxes and such make rentals very popular used cars, the opposite of the US.
Get a diesel and something with an english speaking GPS and you'll be fine. Prost!

If you need advice from a local on a Chicago trip, tweet me. There's a reason people call this "the Greatest Summer City in the world". That reason is winter.
If you dine inside, you're doing it wrong.

Why buy a Dodge Viper when you can get a Dodge Viper under a pickup truck body!?

Car and Driver had a render of a new Lightning today. I have no idea why Ram doesn't have a 6.4L Short bed truck for sale, or why there isn't a Shortbed-small-cab-big engine option out there at all the Big 3.

For $5K I find an old Miata
$10K a Boxster (that might need a lot more $$ eventually)
and for $15K a nicer, newer Boxster that doesn't need as much.

One could also say (I guess that I am) that Carrol has had an awful lot of very good defensive players break the league's Substance Abuse Policy. If Clark shows up to camp at 290 and ripped... I may guess that it wasn't all natural.

I also like the "we'll see" story that ended up in Charlie Wilson's War.

I didn't see that he was already playing highschool varsity football.
Kid's huge, in my mind he was Ben Braden Picture - ing a bunch of 5'3" 14 year olds.

As a man who has a sister 3.5 years older than him... we both STILL remember the (great in my mind, less so in hers) day when I was all of a sudden bigger and stronger than her. Typical friendly sibling play fighting turned into me picking her up and tossing her on the couch, she made this face that said "the whole world has changed"... Let his sister know that things don't stay the same!

I mean, that could be positive and negative. I was full height by my freshman year of high school (5'11", hadn't filled out yet, but would) but there has to be at least some concern with this guy peaking "too early" physically. Is he good because he's the only guy who's 6'5"? Once puberty hits the competition will he still be that good? Does he have more room to grow? Or will he hit his physical ceiling before hitting campus?
That said, can't hurt to get the Michigan name in there early... Harbaugh does want an army of big, fast guys.

However, to quote Terrell, he would have given up a testicle to have played with Jay Cutler as his QB. If we're giving Braylon some leeway for having been drafted by the Browns, my Bears' QB ineptitude must be mentioned.

That said, I really miss (not that I was alive for it) Can/Am racing. Lemans is probably my current favorite, although I'd love to race in LeMons someday.
Can/Am's "no rules" birthed some wonders, including McLarens running 8.0L Ford V8s and my favorite race car and butchering of a Latin letter by Germans the "180 V-12" in the Porsche 917. Bolt 2 911 Tubro engines together in the 70s? Aw hell yes.
I'm not partial to any driver, but I'm very interested to see how the Porsche and Audi teams fight this year. Hooray cousins and old feuds!

The big thing, as many have mentioned, is that americans overpay for the data that they use. I think that Google's aim, as in Fiber, is to get more people using MORE data/internet/faster/etc.
Google still makes most of its money from online advertising (thanks Brian!) so the more time spent/web sites visited/etc, the more money google makes. What google wants is more people to use more data, if that happens, they'll make more money. Google can take a loss on providing data and make it up when the data is used. It'll hopefully drive down prices for all cell phone users.

For the basketball, you just really need one, overarching stakeholder who could hype the hell out of it enough to make teams follow suit... the WWL. If ESPN bought in to this, guaranteed marquee matchups, even if they don't know where or when right away, it would happen.
