    I can pretty much confirm that you are seeing drivatars in that video.

    You all fear the Bentley, yet Cube took me out every single time. The key is to not hit it straight on, hell, just drive around it, I can't swerve it's so heavy.

    Anyway, good crazy races tonight. So much contact.

    By the by, last night, Cows, I wasn't directly annoyed with you. I know it was in my voice, but I was generally frustrated at having been backwards for the 4th time in a single race. :p

    Stupid America, why can't you be more nice and compact with better public transit like Europe?
    Yeah, the T is pretty bad. It doesn't help that they got saddled with a lot of the debt from the Big Dig, and there's a lot of controversy over their high salaries. Boston really needs the T to expand and be 24/7, but that's a long way out, if ever.

    How the fuck does it take public transit an hour to go four miles? A human being walks about ~3mph. You could probably walk there in an hour.
    It's around a mile to/from the T both ways. And I could walk, but it would be through some, well, unsavory parts of town.

    I think I'd prefer a Sig Sauer or maybe an H&K.

    What, no Tupperware for you?

    Understandable. How's this? Everyone loves an Osprey, and ya can't go wrong with a 220.

    osprey45Large.jpg

    I assume this isnt yours since (I dont think) you're 21 yet. But if it is, I hate you.

    It's not mine.

    I could have both before 21, assuming both were done through private transactions. The handgun I can't buy from an FFL until I'm 21, but a face-to-face is fine.

    The suppressor can be sold to me in a similar fashion. A form 4 transfer of an NFA item from an FFL requires the receiver of the transfer to be 21. But a private transfer of an NFA item can be done through a form 4 at the age of 18.

    So if I had about 800 dollars for the 220 and about 900 for the Osprey, plus a 5 dollar check and 9+ months for the transfer of the NFA item, I'd be good to go.

    The part which bothers me most about the above is that these are processes Scatman is aware of, but I bet he couldn't name all the provinces and territories of Canada without looking them up ...

    I'm not ashamed to admit I can't name all the states, but I suspect that's not common among Americans either.
    Seriously, why do you guys need 50 of those things? :p

    No that's ok I had a hard time seeing the corner through you guys and ended up braking a little too late. I waited up so you could pass me. :(

    Also on Road America I saw everyone going SOOOoooo slow in front of me in the final corners and thought I saw a hole that I thought I could squeeze through. It was a poor attempt at trying to pass people. Why was everyone poking along anyways?

    Edit: I tried thinking of all the Canadian provinces and couldn't remember the middle ones because no one cares about Saskatchewan or Manitoba.
    Or at least that's what I tell myself since I couldn't remember their names. Also who cares about the territories :P

    Come on now, that could be said of a ton of people worldwide regarding neighboring countries too. And Ontarians and Quebequois and Vancouverites of other Canadian provinces/territories.

    edit:

    Also, I'm sorry for losing my frosty Canadian cool and yelling at Joe yesterday, In the future I'll just laugh when situations that are far beyond my control are imposed on me and I am also apparently to blame when the obvious result of that situation happens.

    If it's the event I'm thinking of (which saw me body-checked off the track and braking before I hit the wall), we were slow because the entire pack was in sets of 3-wide. I think I'm the only casualty there.

    I think it's safe to say the whole night was about the dirtiest racing we've ever done in an SBC. Mostly unintentional (I'm giving arctic the benefit of the doubt that him passing me on Iberian by diving the corner and bodychecking me off the track was because his car is uncontrollable), some less so (groove, the fact that Bast didn't instantly DQ you for that fucking blocking, me on the opening straight, Bast on the second, on the first lap of Road America is baffling, and not in a "ha ha, oh you" way).

    I wasnt going to DQ him but I fully intended to use my "bull horns" on him to get him out of the way to paraphrase Marcus Ambrose at Watkins Glen. Then 3 corners later I bounced off the back of Keml0 and gently escorted myself in the carousel and lost at least 8 grid positions.

    Hey thanks. After the part where you got upset about me not telling you I was along side until I was along side, I figured out what you needed to race comfortably... I just wish we had gotten to that part at some point earlier than after the last time we made contact.

    I was unaware that I should be able to withstand all impacts in my car that weighs 400-1200lbs less than most of the things it is racing against.

    The Northwest Territories remains. The 3rd territory that was split from it is Nunavut.

    So, I saw a Ford GT cut by me on the highway here in Austin today... my god it was incredible! Totally missed my exit because I was so excited about seeing one.

    After living in SoCal and regularly seeing exotic cars, I'm a little shocked how excited I was.

    My wife also pointed out something I missed... the personalized license plate was 'UNICORN'. :)

    Thinking I might back out on my Xbox one purchase. All I hear is how much of a trainwreck the system/online is, and it's a lot of money for a system I'm only going to play Forza on, since I'm PC all the way next gen.

    I mean, the only game I was going to play on the xbox was Forza, as it is now. I don't play games on consoles because they look worse than PC and are more expensive. This doesn't look like it's going to change for next gen as I have a pretty beefy PC and most games have looked pretty meh on the Xbox and PS4 (and 30 fps olol :/ ), and aside from Forza none of the exclusives for the next year interest me even a tiny bit and I don't see that changing given the studios owned by each company.

    Mostly just rumors and twitter hearsay on the brokenness part.

    I'm still considering getting an Xbone 6-12 months after release once they've worked out all their issues and I've had time to hear feedback about FM5. Or mayble I'll just buy a band saw instead.

    P.S. Bast why are you spoiling things for yourself? :P
