Recap Episode is up and ready for your enjoyment. After a few day under the weather I emerged and slap this one together for you all. Enjoy and don't forget to subscribe to my YouTube channel search Selden007 and like all my videos even if you don't. As per DSmooth's suggestion I have got the adapter for my headset and the mount for my kinect, so now instead of a echoing crotch shot you get a clean sounding shot of my chrome dome.. Enjoy!
Lookie lookie lookie, I forgot to post this in my blog last week, so here it is.
No replacement for displacement? Try sub 2000lb cars with 200hp or so or more...
here's four cars you may or may not know that would drop some jaws...
2005-? Lotus Elise - sub-2,000-pound weight, a 189 hp Toyota-sourced engine, good for 0-60 in about 4.7 seconds, super sharp handling, one of the best driver’s cars on the planet...
The 2008 version Elise SC sported a non-intercooled supercharger producing 218 hp (163 kW). 0-60 mph in 4.3 seconds...
1964-66 Griffith 200 - 0-60 time of 3.9 seconds, 85.5-inch wheelbase, handling was said to be as nervous as a badger on PCP...
The Griffith Series 200 could be fitted with a high-powered 289 cubic inches (4.74 l) that put out 271 horsepower (202 kW), the car had a 150 mph (240 km/h) top speed.
1983-1986 Renault R5 Turbo - turbocharged 1.3-liter engine, the R5 turbo was capable of performance that would surprise many unwary Porsche 911 owners...158 horsepower and 163 lb·ft torque, 2,138 lb curb weight.
This my friends, is the grandad of the Renault Clio V-6 ...
1996-99 Panoz AIV Roadster - 32-valve, 4.6-liter Ford SVT Cobra V-8, 176 produced...
I have to say, I'm a huge fan of the Shelby Cobra's, but this Panoz was an unknown to me and I really like it, if you squint real hard, it looks like a Caterham with a tad more testosterone. Question is, does it perform as well...

What started as silly Game Jam joke was actually developed into a real game. So, yeah. You play a goat and you trash the environment, and that's it. And yet it's getting insanely good reviews from gamers.
From the Steam page:
And of course, this is released on the day I left my laptop back at the office.
Hey all, just wanted to drop a quick note while I'm working on this fine Saturday night. For those of you who don't know, I've decided to retire from the Geeks On The Mic podcast. Long story short, we were having creative differences & my buddy's head somehow found its way up his ass. I decided to back out while I could still call him a friend. Fortunately, this isn't the end of the line for Jedi, but more a new beginning. I'm going rogue & starting my own podcast. I've got a good bit set up already: bought a web domain, designing the web site, and am setting up the applications I'll need. The domain I bought was expired & on auction, so it won't be fully available for the next two weeks... but I'll use that time to work out whatever bugs I can.
Also, speaking of going rogue, I've decided to remain a lone wolf & retire from the online dating scene. I have my full-time job, and my 2nd "job" (the social media thing) is starting to pick up. I'm also about to take on the Podcast, and I need to focus on my health right now - both physical & mental. Besides, I only met two real people on there - one who ultimately kept comparing me with her exes, and the other was so self-centered (and was still pushing me to go out while I was off work due to my back) that I quickly told her to go fuck herself because I'd lost any desire to. Ultimately, I'm just going to focus on me at the moment, and once all the dust settles, I'll get back on that horse.
On the plus side, when I went to the hospital for my back, I found out I'd lost about 13 pounds since I started trying to lose some of this weight.
Hennessey announces $1.25 million Venom GT World's Fastest Edition
f you wanted to get your hands on the new special edition of the Hennessey Venom GT, you had to know the right people—most likely, John Hennessey himself. Because the new red, white, and blue World's Fastest Edition of the supercar is limited to just three units—and it’s already sold out.
At a price of $1.25 million each, that’s no small feat, but the car does hold a top speed run of 270.4 mph, and a Guinness World Record for the 0-300 km/h (0-186 mph) dash at 13.63 seconds. It owes this monstrously fast acceleration and speed to its 2,743-pound curb weight and its twin-turbo 7.0-liter V-8 engine, which is rated for 1,244 horsepower.
The top speed of 270.4 mph was set at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center this February, and the three World’s Fastest Edition cars are being built to commemorate the achievement. Painted primarily white, but with a stripe of red and blue down the middle, the special-edition car is intended to mimic the flag the team flew out of the record-setting Venom GT’s window the day of the run.
Of course, the non-World’s Fastest Edition Venom GT is just as fast as the sold-out special, so if you’ve got the itch to go 270 mph in a road-legal car, you can still order one. It won’t be one of the rarest special-edition supercars in the world, but it’ll still be one of the fastest
I have a 2008 Honda that I'm still paying for (I started leasing, put too many miles on, and financed the residual value). I had been looking for a beater car to use part time, so that I wasn't putting so many miles on the Honda. After looking around at cars for less than $10K, I found this:
It's a 2013 Charger and slightly used (23,000 miles) but I couldn't resist. It has the smaller V6 engine but it can still move quickly, although in my town I need to drive very slowly around all the frost heaves.
I know how this soldier feels.........
Laid out in one table.
This does not include random or one off events.
I estimate i have completed over 1500 races over the years!
