Jalopnik is a site about cars and the people that love them. The fucking President of the United States addresses a tweet to people who “like automobiles.” Those are cars. The tweet, again from the President, states things that cannot be proven as true regarding cars and car ownership by Americans. It’s hard to see Read more

There’s equal real evidence for either interpretation. If pressed, I’d say both are total horseshit.

Oddly enough their facebook post uses the wording “2.2 kg per centre”(emphasis mine) which makes it sound like they’re not including the rim - the barrel of the wheel - in that figure. I really have a hard time believing they got the whole wheel, rim and all, down to 2.2 kg. Most street-rated carbon fibre motorcycle

It is not “dead dirt”. It is a viable and very fragile ecosystem. Driving on it breaks the surface, compacts the ground underneath, and exposes the lower layers to the elements. It takes decades for that damage to heal. Read more

Desert sand formations tend to grow very slowly and in areas with very little rain like Death Valley, can be preserved intact for centuries or longer.

He killed the iDX, made all Nissans boring and killed any long term plans. We now have a Nissan with ancient cars that have not been updated. Also he stole money from the company for his family and himself. Anything more to say?

If buying cars was strictly a financial decision, this site wouldn’t exist. The used car fetish here and other enthusiast sites has always been inexplicable to me, especially when (contrary to this article), there are lots of attainable new options out there.

He took the same calculus and diff eq as any other engineer...not that this is particularly complex math. What does his experience have to do with basic geometry and vectors?
