These "race cars" can't go the distance so they have to create special tracks to use them on instead of running them on known tracks.
Is that so odd? Many many sporting activities have facilities designed especially for them.
Who said anything about saving nature?
This post did. You know, the one at the top of the very thread to which you're replying.
Here's a video showing the layers. I assumed the guy was a nut case, but they're really there. At the very least an explanation is in order.
Why must we keep electing people who are so fucking stupid?
I'm no political wiz, but it seems to me that the skills required to get elected and the skills to do the job well are nearly orthogonal.
I see it as lazy asses that can't be fucked to get off the couch and walk 5 feet to a light switch.
People used to say the same thing about television remotes.
Admittedly, I can't see the need for automating my home, but I wonder if maybe I'm just a grumpy old man.
867-5309. Chances are, it's already in the system too.
They don't say "You don't look like a Jenny" ?
I don't show my receipt at the door unless it's at a membership store where I could lose my account if I fail to do so (like Costco).

But was planning on going with the new Macbook or an Air for their slightly smaller form factor.
The new Macbook enjoys the same increase, though of course there might be other reasons to not choose it.
Just say one of my kids 'goes rogue' and... shoplifts. Does that suddenly mean I did a bad job?
No, and you also might think "She would never do that." That doesn't make you an "idiot parent", despite what the OAC said.
But come to think of it, that'd be a little weird: you'd be able to drive your car into the city on one day, but wouldn't be able to drive it out the next.
They did this in San Jose, Costa Rica (and maybe they still do, I don't know). Cars were each restricted one weekday. Plates ending in 1 or 2 on Monday, 3 or 4 on Tuesday, etc. It wasn't 24 hours, it was from ~6am to 8pm.
It was somewhat successful, though not surprisingly considerably less than a 20% reduction. Taxis were not restricted, and of course wealthier families tended to have more than one car.
