F1 for Dummies F1 for Dummies

This is my FIA-accredited (lol) championship esports race from Gran Turismo Sport a few weeks ago. 14 laps around Suzuka in the 2017 Mercedes-AMG Formula 1 car, alongside 17 other drivers on the grid. I secured pole position by 0.743 seconds, but things get spicy on the second lap.

A wheelchair cannot fit through this space. A person using crutches could not safely pass by. An elderly person should not have to walk across loose stones on a slope (slope not seen well in the photo) to get by a parked pickup truck. This is not even a particularly large truckbed. You may not use the sidewalk, but…

Watchlopnik: fine, upstanding Citizen edition Watchlopnik: fine, upstanding Citizen edition

Helped my roommate go out and buy a brand-new 2017 Suzuki GSX-R1000 on Saturday. I don’t know much about bikes myself, but I do know that 199 horsepower from a vehicle weighing less than 500 lbs is fucking fast.

Oppo, talk to me about Subaru Bajas Oppo, talk to me about Subaru Bajas

Why do I not see any modded Bajas around? I saw a stock Baja a few days ago and I got the urge to buy one and make it into a hot ute. I’m not much of a Subaru guy and WRXs and STIs are a dime a dozen in Colorado, but the UTE CALLS TO ME. Is there an aftermarket for these cars? A cursory Wikipedia glance tells me the…

This state I’ve decided to call home is absolutely gorgeous. Here’s some of my photography from the past four years which is improved quite a bit by the natural landscape. Thar be cars and mountains ahead. No regrets about leaving the south.

Spotted in my usual lunch spot. Never seen one of these cute little guys in the wild before.
