I doubt we will ever user lasers as all weather ciws. You just cant get around the weather problem. If its directed energy weapons you want then we are probably looking at charged particle weapons and not lasers. In other words if you want it to work in the fog or rain you're better off with phasers instead of lasers. » 12/10/14 4:03pm 12/10/14 4:03pm

Those DB V12s were super high tech for the age. Sodium filled valves, direct injection, meth injection, the list goes on. The work done on those in WW2 translated directly to Mercedes gran prix cars after the war. One cool bit of trivia is that 109's could do negative G's while Spitfires couldn't. This was because… » 11/16/14 3:28pm 11/16/14 3:28pm

The E30 is overrated. It has shit suspension, is slow as hell and a pain to work on. People ask way to much for them now. The 190e is better in every single way, more reliable, more comfortable, safer and as a chassis can take more power without becoming a useless driftfest. The 190e was one of the first really… » 11/11/14 9:04pm 11/11/14 9:04pm

I think you are being too critical of their use of the Lima/Mike 'winders. First off, the L/M versions were a huge upgrade to previous generations and they actually did what they were supposed to. Sure a modern airforce with modern equipment and training can defeat them but anything from the 90's or before is dead… » 11/02/14 12:30am 11/02/14 12:30am

I got to shoot one today. its a great machine. Super accurate and due to its action the recoil is practically nothing. 100 yard standing with iron sights is idiot proof. The gun actually makes you a better shooter and weighs nothing. It is far superior to an AR type, even really nice ones. » 11/01/14 8:56pm 11/01/14 8:56pm

So how bad is Kotaku feeling the heat now that Jalopnik is doing the game reviews? Not that I'm complaining or anything, I've always felt that among the gawker sites Jalopnik has had the best writing and the strongest integrity. » 10/07/14 6:29pm 10/07/14 6:29pm

Fair enough man, that makes total sense and its a shitty situation. My only question is, if what you say is true for the majority of Argentinians then why does your president bring it up every now and then to redirect attention from actual problems in the country? If people were sore over fighting a pointless war over… » 10/02/14 8:08pm 10/02/14 8:08pm

Higher octane fuel is not available in Europe. That's a common misconception due to the difference between AKI and RON octane ratings. Unless you are in Kalifornia where they screw you on octane you get the same they do in Europe. UNleaded is unleaded, plus is plus and premium is premium also race gas, also known as… » 9/10/14 11:50pm 9/10/14 11:50pm

Not me but my friend. I talked him into buying an NA Miata. We then spent labor day teaching him to drive stick which involved him forgetting how to use the clutch and brake at the same time while parking and jump a curve thus breaking a coolant line which we had to repair. Good times! » 9/02/14 7:31pm 9/02/14 7:31pm

im not a lawyer but I would say no based on experience. My family had been with liberty mutual for 30 years and i signed up as well. After a wreck that was clearly the other parties fault they did nothing to help us and after shopping around we realised we were being fucked on rates. Switched earlier this year and was… » 8/27/14 9:38pm 8/27/14 9:38pm
