Everyone, the +Buick Avista concept. I dig it.

Now murder it out, slap a Turbo 6 and a Grand National badge on it. Solid gold.

400 horsepower, twin-turbo V6. Off to a very good start.

I'm a bit late to the party but I heard that Martin Shkreli got an invite to Club Fed.

Dear Martin:

So far, I've seen two Amazon ads with Clarkson, which I'm perfectly happy with.
Now, where's Hammond talking about (and being confused) by the overabundance of computers and home theater stuffs?
Most importantly: where is May talking about fine bottles of booze whilst sitting in an easy chair, smoking a pipe?

Come on +Amazon.com, you're slacking!

I got the option to try the new G+ on desktop. 
"Let's go."
Left hand menu takes up space for no reason.
New posts are started with the lower right hand button.
It takes a moment to load New Post window and it's too bloody small anyway.
It remembers the last Community I posted to, instead of Circle.
Yep, it's another live-alpha test courtesy of +Google+
I switched back.

The new G+: a monument to compromise.

Louis Pasteur (27 December 1822 – 28 September 1895) is perhaps most famous for establishing the modern method for eliminating dangerous bacteria from milk, what we of course call "pasteurisation." This method also applies to wine and beer, so remember that the next time you raise a glass or pint.

He also had much to do with vaccinations. It's wonderful to know he worked all his life to make the world a healthier place.

Thank you Monsieur Pasteur, for allowing me to not overly concern myself with the health of the milk in my refrigerator.

For those of you who may not be able to watch:

"As of now, we know this attack was carried out by gigantic fucking assholes. Unconscionable flaming assholes, possibly, possibly working with other fucking assholes, definitely working in service of an ideology of pure assholery. Second, and this goes almost without saying, fuck these assholes. Fuck them—if I may say—sideways. And third, it is important to remember that nothing about what these assholes are trying to do is going to work."

Frédéric Auguste Bartholdi (2 August 1834 – 4 October 1904) is the brilliant designer of the Statue of Liberty and the Lion of Belfort, each a symbol of freedom and resistance. He served in the Franco-Prussian War, so those are qualities he understood well.

Frédéric also understood beauty and aesthetics, as his sculptures are incredibly popular and world renowned. I was amazed to look through his list of accomplishments and all of them I've seen before. Perhaps Hollywood is sure to include them in any movie set in France? All the same, fantastic backdrops.

Thank you Monsieur Bartholdi, for giving us many incredible works to admire.

Léon Levavasseur (8 January 1863 – 26 February 1922) is the father of the V8 engine and direct fuel injection, the latter which has only recently become common place in mass-produced automobiles. Seemingly for laughs, he built engines up to 32 cylinders! He also designed innovative motor boats and airplanes with variable area wings.

As a petrol-head, I owe a lot to a man capable of not just simply thinking outside of the box but kicking it to the curb. Engineers are not normal people. ;)

Sadly, like many great innovators. Léon died penniless. 

Thank you Monsieur Levavasseur. Your inventions have moved the world.
