Buckle up, Granny.

I wasn't kidding, it will be mine. OH YES, IT WILL BE MINE.

"Bugatti’s main achievement was making a car that weighs nearly 4,400 pounds — 1,100 more than a Corvette or Porsche 911 — accelerate and handle so well. The second achievement, and no small feat, is how a midengine exotic with more power than a Formula One racer manages to feel comfortable and pliable even in city traffic. With just a little instruction, your grandmother could drive this car at 150 m.p.h. while knitting a Nomex racing suit."

In fact, I'm already driving it in that Valhalla of a parallel universe where people don't answer cell phones in theatres and no one gets into an express lane with more than 10 items.

Bird-Related Accident Suggests the Large Hadron Collider Really Is Doomed

Genius comment of the week @twophrasebark here on i09:


Yes, we have been trying to keep you from starting up the [Large Hadron Collider]. It's not what happens back then that's the problem. It's what happens in the year 2733. Every time you guys try to turn on that thing all our garage doors start going up and down. Please stop!!
