The Web C&S

            Tuesday, October 28, 2014

ASIDE:  Yes, I'm still watching Top Gear (BBC) on Netflix. My 5th or sixth cyle.  Why?  I don't know. I mean, that works out to 95 8-hour days of  it!  It obviously has a salutary effect on me, else I wouldn't.  The cast in the newer series do seem to be a parody of themselves; there's only so many times you can drop caravans on more caravans, or race across deserts in £1500 Porches; but I carry on anyway.  The "golden years" had this opening sequence (right), and ended (I think) with the annoying  "Some say he ... The Stig" introduction meme.  Strange thing is, I'm now watching the 2004 episodes, and for the first time, one of the cars (the "NEW" Golf GTI) looks dated.

"The MSM Rule of Inverse Electoral Correlation:
The closer the presidential race gets, the louder the MSM declares that it’s over. And all this comes even as Clinton has had a terrible week—arguably her worst week ever, as the billowing smoke of financial scandal clouds herself and her family."

Now compare the Veyron to a Tesla motor. Kinda like an IBM System S/360 to a iPhone (well not really, but you get the idea).

a continuum of crap?

Judging by the photo, I would say either a small
industrial or marine engine. If the later, the straight
gearbox might indicate surface drives.

The Bugatti Veyron may be called "Irrational exuberance", but they have a point.

If you want reliability and power, of course, the turbines win...as long as you disregard the ramjet,
which is nothing but a pipe and nozzles with infinite durability and nearly infinite consumption.

However, if you take into account fuel usage and cost, piston engines win by a very wide margin...

Like the DC-3 is still today unequalled in capacity, economy and reliability in airplanes,
it's the Pratt and Withney R-2800 that win the all time championship in reliability, power
and economy...it powered the all around best fighter of WW II, the P-47 and it still power
the best fire fighting flying boat, the Canadair CL-215.
