I'm very much a meat an potatoes (and chocolate) kind of girl, but more and more people going vegan is hard to ignore.
I suspect that in another generation or so, veganism will be normal and eating meat will be seen with some disdain. I'm not looking forward to those days at all, but I am aware of the environmental costs of raising meat, so I do get it.

If you're in the market for a new supercar, (and I know you are), perhaps this video from McLaren will help you make your mind up which one to buy.
I'm not sure how you would feel in your new McLaren when this water bike literally blasts past you!

Well, that first lap was spectacular. I just wanted to start this thread to get things going, but I'll do my heroes and zeroes later.
The first lap incident was caused without a doubt, by Sebastian Vettel's slight move to the left, which took him most of the way across the track into Max, who when he realized was getting pinched by both Ferraris was simply trying to brake to avoid collision on either side.
At first glance I was inclined to blame MV, but after the overhead replay, it was painfully clear that Vettel was the culprit. Kimi was oblivious to what was happening because MV had already started braking to avoid and to Kimi it looked like he had won the drag race and the corner would be his.
Only annoying thing from Max today was in his post crash interview, he had to try to share the blame between Seb and Kimi when the replays showed Kimi clearly with one wheel brushing the white line and never deviating. MV claimed they both moved over on him. And by that time he would have certainly seen the replays himself. It is embarrassing to listen to these guys when they have some mental block that doesn't let them realize that a hundred million people are watching their behaviour and know clearly what happened.

Robert Kubica has a new manager. Some old retired duffer.
Will Buxton brought up an interesting idea. Kubica would have a lot of trouble racing Monaco due to his injuries. His new manager lives there. Single race substitute diver?

The Goodwood Historics in the rain. This is what wet racing should look like, IMO!

A friend of mine has a business installing kitchens, and one of his suppliers gave him a 'gift' of a private rental of a D35 Sailing Catamaran along with a boat tour of Geneva Harbour on a 300hp rubber boat and a 4 course dinner out. Because he knows I'm a sailing nut, he asked me if I would like to join him and a couple other friends for the day. The Catamaran is the same class as the original Alinghi that won the Americas Cup a decade or so ago. Completely carbon fibre, including a 25m mast with a carbon mainsail and enough sailing electronics to make me very confused. Nonetheless, we each had a turn on the tiller, grinding or being lumps of ballast (told to jump this way or the other to make the boat trim slightly differently), going through jibes and tacks. It's not one of the newer foiled sailboats, but the fact that it could get to 18knts in a 14knt wind, and how quickly it went from 0-18 was remarkable. Wow...chance of a lifetime, so I took it. The drive there and back in the backseat of a Porsche Cayenne talking to a guy about his La Ferrari and the Testerrosa he wrote off a few years ago was icing on the cake. Lived the high life for a few hours...
Had my GoPro, but will need some editing, so come back soon...
