Are Lexus looking at the R35 GTR ?
If you have even the slightest interest in upcoming vehicles, you’re in for a treat. LFA is production-ready and confirmed for global markets.
You’ll never look at Lexus the same way again. Just listen to the thing ! 4.8L V10 if memory serves…
I over-dosed on John Meyer many years ago and had to ban him from my world.
I just stumbled upon this clip tonight; a live performance on The Panel. It may have actually been the first time I had heard him.
Regardless, once you get past the guests on the show being kinda rude to him and he starts to play; (Kate Langbroek, you’re a DICK) if you, like me, have not listened to John Mayer for quite a while.. you will be reminded of how great he really was (is)
grab a pair of headphones and give this a whirl.. Trust me.
Quite possibly the slowest, coolest, most mesmerising and challenging flash game ever.
Free demo is here and is three levels of the 30 available.
I don’t know why, but I love this.
“I doubt that religion can survive deep understanding. The shallows are its natural habitat. Cranks and fundamentalists are too often victimised as scapegoats for religion in general. It is only quite recently that Christianity reinvented itself in non-fundamentalist guise, and Islam has yet to do so (see Ibn Warraq’s excellent book, Why I am not a Muslim). Moonies and scientologists get a bad press, but they just haven’t been around as long as the accepted religions. Theology is a respectable discipline when it studies such subjects as moral philosophy, the psychology of religious belief and, above all, biblical history and literature. Like Bertie Wooster, my knowledge of the Bible is above average. I seem to know Ecclesiastes and the Song of Solomon almost by heart. I think that the Bible as literature should be a compulsory part of the national curriculum – you can’t understand English literature and culture without it. But insofar as theology studies the nature of the divine, it will earn the right to be taken seriously when it provides the slightest, smallest smidgen of a reason for believing in the existence of the divine. Meanwhile, we should devote as much time to studying serious theology as we devote to studying serious fairies and serious unicorns. “
“During many ages there were witches. The Bible said so. The Bible commanded that they should not be allowed to live. Therefore the Church, after doing its duty in but a lazy and indolent way for 800 years, gathered up its halters, thumbscrews, and firebrands, and set about its holy work in earnest. She worked hard at it night and day during nine centuries and imprisoned, tortured, hanged, and burned whole hordes and armies of witches, and washed the Christian world clean with their foul blood. Then it was discovered that there was no such thing as witches, and never had been. One does not know whether to laugh or to cry.”
“Religion is regarded by the common people as true, by the wise as false, and by the rulers as useful.”
Seneca the Younger
“So far as I can remember, there is not one word in the Gospels in praise of intelligence.”
“Religion is fundamentally opposed to everything I hold in veneration–courage, clear thinking, honesty, fairness, and, above all, love of the truth.”
“Pointing to another world will never stop vice among us; shedding light over this world can alone help us.”
Our ignorance is God; what we know is science.

The fact that a believer is happier than a skeptic is no more to the point than the fact that a drunken man is happier than a sober one. The happiness of credulity is a cheap and dangerous quality.

If you want to get together in any exclusive situation and have people love you, fine – but to hang all this desperate sociology on the idea of The Cloud-Guy who has The Big Book, who knows if you’ve been bad or good – and CARES about any of it – to hang it all on that, is the chimpanzee part of the brain working.
— Frank Zappa
A man’s ethical behaviour should be based effectually on sympathy, education, and social ties and needs; no religious basis is necessary. Man would indeed be in a poor way if he had to be restrained by fear of punishment and hope of reward after death.
— Albert Einstein
