All Your Eggs in One Basket

15 Dec , 2014   Chris

I haven’t been a Formula 1 fan for very long. I believe my first season of interest was when Jenson Button took Brawn GP to the championship in front of Vettel in 2009. In the short time that I’ve been a fan, however, I have done my best to be a proper one; learning about all the glory that was Senna and his rivalry with Prost, watching the “Killer Years” documentary just shy of a thousand times, and most importantly, picking favorites. In the world of sports, F1 is a very interesting animal in this regard compared to others. Like the rest, you can pick a favorite team, but each team only has 2 players. You have a real opportunity to be a fan of individual drivers and to understand their specific racing styles. Whether it’s Alonso’s adaptability, Perez’s all-or-nothing aggression, or Maldonado’s seemingly impossible feat of crashing more times in an hour and half than a pirated copy of Windows Vista, you really have the privilege of minimal selection.

A journey to see just how they stack up against the best and greatest drivers in the country.

5 Types of Everyday Wear and Tear (That Make You Look Like a Hobo)

29 Aug , 2014   Chris

As with any lump of moving parts hurtling through the air, like an airplane or a robot fired from a catapult, cars will have issues.  Usually these issues aren’t a big deal: the occasional paint chip or dulled clear coat, dirty hood, scratched bumper, even the blood of your enemies can be washed away with moderate ease.  Most of the time they go largely unnoticed.  There are a few problems though that, despite their universality, inexplicably give off an unwarranted expression of your entire lifestyle. Namely that you don’t have one. You live under a bridge in a fridge-box house where all the different rooms are stuck together with boogers.  It is not specifically known by science* what separates these issues from others, but the bottom line is that these 5 problems are definitely the least that make you look the worst.  Such as… More…
