I read up about the Vantablack X6. Apparently they toned it down from true Vantablack (0.04% reflectivity) to a more normal-ish 10% reflectivity.

Some of his producing credits are good to great, but I’ve never seen anything written or directed by him that I would count as “great.He is reliably entertaining, in an average kind of way, but doesn’t do anything groundbreaking and I find his style irritating.

The problem is, unless you write things very carefully, it would be easy to game the system. Like, each option package is a different “model” and Ferrari can make 5000 cars instead of 500.

Same! My family references the movie a lot. I can quote along with it whenever I watch it. It’s just the best.

I was gonna say, TMP is at least twice as exciting as 2001 was, and just as gorgeous.

It is very Trek, in part because the main conflict is resolved by using brains, not guns. They try to learn about V’Ger, talk with it, understand it, and in the end make it understand them. Violence or destruction is not really considered as an option.

God I miss that. I’ve wondered if there’s some kind of application I can download to get that functionality back in Windows, but I just haven’t bothered to look.

This seems about as solid a premise as that NBC show where all the electricity stopped.

Well the main regret is passing on the warranty, because I’ve had two electronics modules break down and now my check engine light is on.

Most of that stuff is also part of track days, and two-day events are like $500. Why are race entries more expensive?

I have a 2009 stick shift DB9, and some regrets, are you interested? I promise at least three fewer regrets than I had =P

Exactly. You can get DB9s for less, which as you say are way better, and you can get DB7s for WAY less.

I was gonna say Lexus, but yeah, there are zero angles from which this car looks like a BMW.

I just track day a few times a year, and even that gets expensive. $1000 per event is what I usually estimate, plus brake & tire wear. Then there was the year I had a small accident and also blew out my exhaust a couple times. I spent like seven grand on my car that year, which isn’t even that bad, plus the track day

Put electric motors in the wheels and you can get rid of axles altogether...

Driving on a country road with the stars out in a light jacket and driving gloves when it’s around 55 degrees is just perfection.

It looks more like part of the car, or the kerb itself? Not like any drain cover I’ve ever seen.
