  1. Splitting up our division at work. Happened...

    Splitting up our division at work. Happened suddenly, blind-sided my manager. Of course they never asked him or any of us if it was a good idea (it isn't). We're drowning in people with MBA's and...

    dessert? I had it for breakfast. Some folks at work brought it in (they work on the PI team, not Pi, it's a data archiving tool). Maybe this is why I'm office normal and bike racer giant.
  3. I look forward to talking **** about Generation Z...

    I look forward to talking **** about Generation Z (they don't have a cool name yet) on the internet in 30 years. Hell, I'll start now.

    Buncha no-good lazy kids, stealing nutrients from their...
  4. The constant hate on millenials on the internet...

    The constant hate on millenials on the internet is really starting to drive me crazy.
  5. Awful. Sorry to hear.

    Awful. Sorry to hear.
  6. They're probably also fiddling with the fuel flow...

    They're probably also fiddling with the fuel flow levels, that's on their wheel too. I don't think the turbo KERS (MGU-H) is controlled from the pits, I don't think any controls are allowed to be...
  7. yeah, it's extremely efficient. I certainly...

    yeah, it's extremely efficient. I certainly wouldn't mind one for my car. Larger turbo without any lag, plus storing waste heat from braking and exhaust to use later? Where do I sign? Hmm, I'm an...
  8. See my other post, also, antilag is EXTREMELY...

    See my other post, also, antilag is EXTREMELY wasteful for fuel. When you only have so much for a race, you can't go dumping it into your exhaust just to spin your turbo. Not to mention it's very...
  9. It's mandated. Basically, there are two different...

    It's mandated. Basically, there are two different electric motors/generators in the car. A motor and a generator are the same thing, just with power going in or out of them. The first motor/generator...
  10. I think with less downforce and less HP and less...

    I think with less downforce and less HP and less sticky tires it's pretty safe to say the lap times will be slower. I'm an engineer, car racing has always been part engineering and part driving, so I...
  11. I might actually stay up to watch the F1 race...

    I might actually stay up to watch the F1 race from Australia live. It's 2 AM Sunday morning though, quite early. Not sure if they'll replay it later in the day. The cars are slower, but the engines...

    I don't get it either. Clearly satire, but I don't know that publication well enough to understand why, it's not like it's hilarious or super insightful or anything, and it's not April 1st yet.
  13. Yeah, if I was driving a Ferrari you better...

    Yeah, if I was driving a Ferrari you better believe I'd have a fire extinguisher. Those things have been going up like match sticks lately. New Mazdaspeed3? Meh, not so much. The only time they catch...
  14. I see your point, got it. Without the belt on,...

    I see your point, got it. Without the belt on, the car moves to his right, he doesn't, he hits the pillar coming from his left, then car stops and he keeps going (having been accelerated by the...
  15. Yeah, I'm certainly not advocating anyone stop...

    Yeah, I'm certainly not advocating anyone stop wearing their seatbelts. That makes sense though, and yeah, this side impact looked like he had no crush zone at all, no side airbags, and the B pillar...
  16. I considered it, but they're just so big. Not to...

    I considered it, but they're just so big. Not to mention if I come upon a car fire I'm pulling the people out and running the **** away from there, not trying to put it out. Car fires can turn into...

    two (long) thoughts for the day.

    1) saw a nasty car crash this morning on my way to work. Car 1 pulled out (straight, going across) into one lane of a 6 lane road (a right turn lane) and just sat...
  18. weather here is pretty bad, but we still have...

    weather here is pretty bad, but we still have power. I worked from home yesterday, doing the same again today. There's about 7 inches of snow, with maybe a half inch of ice on top, my dog didn't seem...

    the weather sucks, again. Is this winter really the worst in history or does it just seem that way?

    Looking for a couple decent laptops for the wife and I. She has a few year old (4 maybe?) Macbook and I have a 2 or 3 year old HP. Neither has dedicated graphics, but other than that they're both...

    Any car guys, there's a new game I found through Jalopnik (awesome car website if you don't visit it). It's called Automation: The Car Company Tycoon or something like that. It's not complete yet,...

    Mine would just be lots of mumbled cursing and heavy breathing.

    This just in on CNN - Possible terrorist plot uncovered at Tuscon Motel. Bomb Squad is en route. We'll bring you live footage shortly.

    http://www.wired.com/wiredenterprise/2014/01/chrisdixon/. Here's one VC guy who thinks it'll be worth $100k. Whether that's just him running a long game pump and dump I dunno.

    I don't think anyone...

    And if you like math, and assume bitcoin can somehow take over the world, you can figure out what each bitcoin would have to be worth. There's approximately $70 trillion US dollars worth of "money"...
