I should probably give this a proper writeup with clever quips and copious hyperbole...but alas, it's Friday and I don't have it in me. 

I installed some Revshift polyurethane offset control arm bushings after work today. I've had these things sitting around for months, and have been putting this off because I had a feeling that without the "proper' tools, this job would be something akin to building a new Taj Mahal. Alas, this was not the case. The old bushings were easy to remove with a two-arm puller, a Dremel, and a hacksaw. The new bushings pushed into their housings with little complaint, and then slid onto the control arms with nothing more than sweat and swearing. 

The result is far better than I could have ever anticipated. The steering feels better, braking is better, shifting is better, and people appreciate the car more. Ok, the last one is a lie. I appreciate the car more, but it's a change that no one else will likely even notice.

However, the best part about this job is that I am now one step closer to having this thing track ready. The only major mechanical items left are a new output shaft transmission seal, which sounds like a crazy awful thing, but really isn't that big of a deal, and to change all the belts. The belt job will be a little bit of a pain, since that includes the timing belt. But, after all that is done, it will be ready for some serious stress testing via autocross and HPDEs. 

Hell yeah.

I wouldn't call this heavy use, but for a Monday and Tuesday, pretty satisfying.

Mr. Koenigsegg obviously makes some pretty bold statements about the hybrid competition. He is trying to sell his cars after all. Chris Harris was of the opinion that some of those hybrids might be better off with better gasoline/petrol engines than with their hybrid powerplants. However, when he drove the P1, that sentiment was not shared with the viewer. "It's a whole new thing." 

With that being said, I would love to see Mr. Harris drive the new One:1 and compare it to the hybrid monsters that he's recently driven, so as to put Mr. Koenigsegg's claims to the test.

There also the vested interest of moto journalists who like to maintain good relationships with top end manufactures. Sure, they're not going to out right lie but they could be accused of exaggerating

This is a very slick app...though I'm curious to see how it affects battery life of course.

Googles new camera app tells you when you are shooting video incorrectly.

The U.S. National Security Agency knew for at least two years about a flaw in the way that many websites send sensitive information, now dubbed the Heartbleed bug, and regularly used it to gather critical intelligence, two people familiar with the matter said.

Yeah...there was some cool stuff there. I think that 3.0CS was one of my favorites...that and the custom Honda motorcycle, which wasn't really crazy, but something the owner obviously had fun building.

So, some asshole stole my +*****  card number and ordered a bunch of shit online. The fraud department caught it and most of the charges never even made it to my account. However, today I had some huge bottles of cologne show up in the mail that I did not order. So, charges to Reebok, Hot Topic, T-Mobile, and apparently fragrancesnet.com. I really hope that there is some kind of justice in this world. What kind of idiot steals a credit card number and then accidently sends ordered items to the card holder.
