    They have a segment starring the contest-winner who's making the $100,000 bet.

    I now hate that contest-winner and hope his horse tries to mate with his own jockey.

    In Forza I have been sent a Lotus Elise and it has zero track time. I have since getting it bought several other vehicles. I suspect this means something is wrong with me.

    I get such an uncanny valley reaction watching that.

    I think it's the way the knee joint is much higher than it would be on a human, and the way it tucks its thigh right up under the hips.

    I hit that wall in SC1. It sucks and I never did get over it, although playing with a small pool of G&T players who were very good did not help matters any. Just made me super frustrated and I ragequit a lot during games.

    that's where the extra joint is!

    Making a humanlike hip joint must be unfeasible.

    There are a few little tips to move you from noob to terrible.

    Build a lot more little probe/SCV/drone mans than seems necessary. 3 per mineral patch/refinery.

    Expand expand expand. Use all the expansions you can. Your economy is your blood. Position small standing armies at expansions to delay attackers from killing all your gatherers before your real army arrives.

    Use the ability to point your home building rally point (clicking the building, then right clicking a place) to automatically get gatherers to pick up minerals or gas immediately when they spawn. That way you don't have to remember to come back to tell then to get to work.

    Keep playing over and over and over until your brain learns to multitask better. I am still atrocious at this.

    That would be the suspension.

    The part attached to the middle of the downtube is the shock, the rest is all linkages. This particular design is known as a "four bar" set up, and this particular bike has 140mm of suspension travel front and rear.

    Except for expanding, which I don't do much because I like to rush as early as possible and there's no point in expanding when all I'm building are zealots and stalkers.

    Sometimes organisations want to promote people, or have someone in mind for a given position, but are required to advertise all vacancies externally. So they go through the motions of trying to find a suitable candidate, but give the job to the person they were intending to all along.

    A common tactic is to come up with requirements so specific that the person the want to give the job to is the only person that could possibly meet them.
