    Thanks! I have to go for now, but I've been wondering about you guys. I've had personal things going on for the past year or so.

    And I'm back. Also screw the wifi in my room. A solid one to two out of five. Hell, I can get the neighbors wifi at a four.

    Sleep man. Nothing good comes out of missing sleep besides the regret the next day. source: has a doctor's appointment at 9:30 tomorrow morning and is still up, not getting near enough sleep

    Unfortunately, the Thrustmaster is out of price range. I also found out that Currys/PC World have lowered the price of the [EDIT: Turns out it is a G920, same thing though] (£229.98, where it was £299.99), so will probably get my wheel from there (they have a store local to me also)

    Also (Just posted this in another thread), but this is one of the funniest videos I have seen in a long while.

    (This is an email sent out by the local police force on a public mailing list, [it even has a share button so no harm in posting it here])

    So if I am reading this correctly, they want people to pre-emptively send them text messages to state when someone will be drink driving so they can stop, arrest and take them to court.

    If that is the case who is going to actually use this service?
    - People concerned about the safety of family or friends certainly aren't.
    - Unless you have really crappy friends they aren't.
    - Perhaps you have some enemies that you talk in detail about your nights out with?
    - I guess bartenders could, if they are ok with loosing their patrons custom.

    Surely just publicising that drivers should contact the police if they see someone driving very badly would be more effective? (Or at least their passengers since using a phone while driving is illegal :p )

    That's kind of stupid. It's incrimination, but from someone else? Sounds like some neighborhood watch bull.

    Wouldn't it be a lot easier to just call them a cab or something?

    I agree with everything here. The t500rs didn't make me faster but it made me enjoy the drive more.

    people who complain about humidity are the worst, if you're from anywhere that usually only has dry heats you'll find these people are instantly there to talk about how dry heat is fine and we should stop complaining

    NO IT FUCKING ISN'T, DRY HEAT IS STILL FUCKING HEAT, IN FACT IF YOU'RE SO SURE IT'S FINE THEN WHY DON'T YOU COME AND ENJOY DRY HEAT SINCE IT'S NOT THAT BAD

    110 degrees is still 110 degrees humidity or not, ugh

    Well, if you were to have 43c with 60% humidity rather than dry heat I am pretty sure that would be way worse.

    This is an unfortunate byproduct of evaporative cooling. I'll take dry heat anyday. In new York City 0 degrees Celsius feels like -40 Celsius does in Canada because we're on the coast and where I was in Edmonton the air was super dry. Argue about dry heat but dry cold is 1000 times better than wet cold even with that temp difference. About the drunk driver setup your friends nonsense, I'd rather watch my friend die a thousand deaths than ever give him up to the facist police. If I could turn those swine into bacon I'd do it tomorrow those pig fucks.
