Still on a graphic novel fix I read Scott McCloud's The Sculptor, a story about a man who makes a deal with death. It doesn't start out on a happy note, with what is left of the main character's life falling apart around him and you know it is not going to have a happy ending, but in the middle is love, happiness and… » 4/01/15 2:27pm Yesterday 2:27pm

For the last 20 years I've been reading about how airships are going to make a comeback, but apparently they seem to be stuck in a traffic jam behind all of the flying cars. » 3/31/15 2:03pm Tuesday 2:03pm

What's going in the engine bay? I know sense and history would say a big V8, but I'd be so tempted to add a modern turbo engine and appropriate gearbox. » 3/30/15 5:06pm Monday 5:06pm

Ferrari did make use of better strategy to win, but had the relative pace been the same as last year then Mercedes would have most probably powered their way back to victory. It may not be parity, but it is a damn sight closer than last year. » 3/30/15 12:07pm Monday 12:07pm

There a number I like, but when it comes down to "fits the design profile", you've got to hand it to the person who was told "give us something sinister" and came up with these: » 3/29/15 11:39am Sunday 11:39am

My local RSPCA centre does the same, my cat was named during a Peter Pan period, but there were litters of Harry Potter themed kittens and Lord of the Rings cats, too. » 3/29/15 11:35am Sunday 11:35am

If Christopher Lambert, Dolph Lundgren and Christopher Walken all starred in a film together I would definitely watch it, it would be the biggest pile of shite ever, but I would watch it. » 3/29/15 9:53am Sunday 9:53am

Don't do anything rash, it's bad enough without you getting a police charge of your own, let the law system handle the punishment. I would let you fiancée take the lead, she might be more inclined to forgive, but let her know that it is absolutely the last chance, you don't want the little turdbasket to come between… » 3/29/15 6:04am Sunday 6:04am

There were quite a few people pulling good moves (and a few bad) down in the pack, but one driver drove a full lap on a flat tire and then still threaded his way through the pack to 4th. Kimi for me. » 3/29/15 5:53am Sunday 5:53am

If I read this right they offer you the chance to buy clothes sight unseen? Hey, every month some clothes will turn up, you may hate them but you've already paid. » 3/28/15 9:50am Saturday 9:50am

You're a little hard on the F1 reliability there. Yes, Australia had a huge number of retirements, but I remember the days when that would not have been unusual at any race in the season. Eleven finishers? Sometimes you didn't even get the six you needed to hand out all the points, and in those days you ran a… » 3/28/15 6:21am Saturday 6:21am

To me it just looks like you've overloaded it. Maybe I spent too much of my formative years stuffing too much into cars and then carrying more people than there are seats. » 3/27/15 6:47pm Friday 6:47pm

My cat is generally moving fast enough to get that effect on a normal exposure. I'm fairly certain he holds the world speed record for indoor travel on a laminate floor. » 3/27/15 5:06pm Friday 5:06pm
