Yeah, I just hope I passed the torch on to Jim. I have crashed every other weekend since August. Hopefully that happens to someone else now.  If it is Jim, then so be it :)

Its not fun.. I have been pretty fortunate the last four or five years, but I am making up for lost time fast

 Just like everything in today's society, Warming and Cooling is just wayyyy too binary, so we need a third option.

It ain't referred to as "global warming" any more.  It's "climate change".  Get with the program.

 

That way, whether it warms or cools, they are still "right" and can continue to blame mankind, cars and capitalism.  :wacko:

its funny to have a bunch of guys who will debate endlessly the specifics of a single 1mm of toe and its effect on handling of a car, hold up there hands and say "the earth system either has to get warmer or colder, it can't do anything else, EVER. the entire thermodynamic system that is the earth can only do one of two things. and if scientists argue that the entire earths thermodynamic system is perhaps a BIT more complex than that, it must mean that they are communists and hate cars"

yup, makes perfect sense. 

if a miata's handling is a complex problem with many trade offs, interaction effects and variables, then wouldn't the entire earths thermodynamic properties maybe ... just maybe ... be more complex than "its get hotter everywhere a uniform amount at a uniform rate?"

crazy, i know. 

BTW, the earth is, on the whole, warming. this does not mean that climate change is in an inaccurate term, or a "hedge" against cooling ... something that is not, and has never actually be predicted. yes, im aware of the right wing's popularizing of the TIME article predicting global cooling in the 1970s. thankfully, TIME, is not a scientific journal, with peer reviewed articles. such an white paper was written recently showing that actually in the 1970s, the majority of climatologists still were predicting warming.

sorry. 

if we can apply science to improve automotive performance, then we can apply science to the climate too. thousands of people every day do. that doesn't make them communists.

Good Lord man, do you want to win!? 

 

What you need to do is hire Kyle Webb as your coach. He will turn you into a Majors WINNING driver, worthy of the title: The People's Champion!

Hang on there young man, the last WORLD CLASS athlete Kyle associated his name with didn't preform to his promoted expectations at the Farm a couple weeks ago. You know if Kyle coaches Davidson and Davidson doesn't come through as the winner, you'd be associated with the failure because you suggested Kyle as a coach. :scratchchin:

guess what industry is about a 770 billion dollar a year industry? its baby brother is "only" a 70 billion dollar a year industry. 

 

for perspective the entire NSF budget (that less than 10% goes to climate research), is about 7 billion dollars a year. if you want to talk about where the money is, climate research ISN'T it. the folks getting rich here are not people who do research on climate science.

Davison a loser? Impossible!

 

Kyle was also not there to coach him, if he was then Anderson would have for sure won!

I'm not sure how global climate change is making the forum less boring. I'm less interested in that, then Danica's left nut.

But he would have stopped 15 out 10 pucks shot at him from any of the retards at bhf! And I did not coach him, but he could win a majors race with some seat time and a good car with a good setup, he races less then 3 weekends a year usually lol. Seen some video anyone who can juggles 3 balls against a wall and stop a piece of rubber shot over 100mph has hands far faster then Danny Steyn.

And bench I will go ahead and say it now you cannot be coached to a majors win buddy. To far past your prime lol

And btw, Davison is already a winner! He has won an acctual real well attended SM race, and even if he had not he would still be a winner! Just look at his title the word champion means winner lolololololol
