keep the dream alive, if any kid tells some other kid what they "can’t do" point out how almost nothing can’t be done, especially in the Western hemisphere, that’s why we’re North AmeriCANs and South AmeriCANs

A 10-year-old girl got to fly a plane for the first time last week, thanks to UPS’s Wishes Delivered campaign, https://wishesdelivered.ups.com/

Taylor is going to be a UPS pilot: She knows this, and you should, too.

“When she was about 5, we took her to the Mall of America, and she got to fly in a plane, and she just knew that’s what she wanted to do with her life,” her mem said. “She was just amazed by it.”

She had taken Taylor to a Girls in Aviation day at Bowman Field, and the UPS Wishes Delivered crew was there, filming and scouting for a candidate, and they chose Taylor.

Wishes Delivered fulfills the dreams of children in various ways. In the past, a young boy who had a special relationship with a driver, was given a custom-made UPS package truck to drive around his neighborhood. The team once delivered snow to children in Texas who had never experienced snow before.

crazy woman hits Canadian construction zone flagger, then escapes and is arrested nearby for assaulting her kids. (thanks Andrew!)

June 30th, 2017 by admin

A driver in a white Hyundai crossover — whose licence plate is visible — can be seen trying to merge into the stream of traffic from a lane closed for repaving. Orange lane posts can be seen separating the two lanes. Directly in front of the vehicle just metres away is an orange post and a flagger in a high-visibility uniform with a stop sign.

About 39 seconds into the video, the SUV begins to move even though there does not appear to be a gap in traffic. The flagger then steps forward with her stop sign held up, but the vehicle proceeds to hit the flagger and the post, and continue on to overtake the vehicle driving slightly ahead of it.

The flagger can be seen being pushed up against the hood of the SUV before being knocked to the side and partially under the vehicle.

The online video of the hit-and-run sparked outrage, with many flaggers calling for attempted murder or assault with a deadly weapon charges.

“They’re threatening to shut bridges down during rush hour,” group co-founder Diane Herback told CBC’s Early Edition. “The flaggers have had enough.”

who is to blame? Drivers for unsafe speeds on slushy roads? Or telecom workers on the far side of a hill….? OR the maniac filming this instead of getting to the other side and slowing people down, warning them, and calling cops (which did happen, they took 30 minutes to arrive) to get involved to prevent more collisions?

December 18th, 2016 by admin

This has to be the most bonkers thing I’ve seen all week. All these locals OUGHT to know how dangerous it is to drive on this road, with slush on it.

But the situation is a danger magnet, and people in the ditch create looky loos, who either slow down to watch the people in the ditch or stop paying attention to the slower traffic ahead of them (truck at the end of the video) and run into others.

But the telecom workers ought to be freaked out by the number of people going off the road. They should NOT continue to be a part of the problem, and ought to get traffic control in place.

You decide… let me know in the comments if the telecom are at fault, or not. Anything you want to say after that is totally cool… but please start with “…. is to blame” or “…. is at fault, or not at fault.”

I’d like to tally the score on this one

Can Am 50th Anniversary book review (one word, awesome)

December 15th, 2016 by admin

The Can Am was a racing series for 9 years, and they did a fantastic damn job of writing one chapter for each year.

There are so many cool things I learned, I can’t even figure out where to start… check the video (notice that WING? Biggest wing ever used)

and the smallest car, which should be compared to a go cart… it had 10 inch wheels, well, it was supposed to, but Firestone ran into problems and didn’t get them made in time. Regardless, the point was to make the smallest race car, for less aerodynamic drag, but… they forgot that the brakes would also be tiny, and that does NOT work well for racing.

When they did get the tires, they were really wide, and you know that tires if over inflated or spun really fast, are going to get stretch in the center… but if they aren’t designed well, and aren’t inflated enough, they only touch the ground above the outside edges of the rims…. that is a big problem too. So, basically they didn’t think this through very well.

Some cars were thought out very well, so much that they were quickly outlawed…. in a race that had been set up as “without rules” because ironically, the race series hadn’t been thought out very well. That is what makes this book invaluable to car guys that love the prime history of 60s racing… it is analytical about what made the race cars better, how they evolved (in cases like the Chaparral) and what was so overlooked, but obvious in hindsight, that was missed when they came up with the notion of unlimited racing.

One word: money. You can’t have unlimited racing, as only the unlimited funding from the largest corporations can compete, and whoever spends the most, wins. It’s not racing if it’s won by just spending the most money.

That is what nails this book for me, as the only book I’ll need to read on the subject of Can Am… it’s so damn thorough! Who won, why, how, and what caused failure. Both in the cars, and the race series itself. Brilliant writing direction that the author took, it’s on point for the reader that likes to learn, and for many people, we learned more about Trans Am racing, F1, Gran Prix, Rally, drag racing, or Nascar… and Can Am was something heard about, but not studied or learned very thoroughly. Then, the comparison of a lap time from one team to another, or year to the next, to show that this or that was advanced significantly, or not at all… that sort of analysis is great stuff to me…. to learn that the best driver that there ever was had a time, but the mediocre car was letting him down, or that the next years advances in engines or tires put him some seconds faster when little else changed. Terrific info.

for example

Vic Elford remembers: “My first impression was, I don’t really see it as very quick, because it just sort of goes around corners. But then of course, when it got down to analyzing it, we found it was going around corners about 12 or 15 percent quicker than anything else would.”

I sure as hell never learned about Can Am til now, but hell, I’d glimpsed so much about it from looking at the drivers, team owners, and hearing about the tracks that I wasn’t coming at this book without some knowledge of those aspects of it, and that is pretty damn cool. It’s a lot harder to enjoy a book where you have to learn about EVERYTHING, like the characters, locations, or whatever.

When it’s just another aspect of the history of so much you’ve heard of already, well… its a damn pleasure to get more info on all of the stuff involved. Tire technology, engine advancement with turbos and injection, wings and aero, and what part the famous racers played in the various teams in Can Am… as I never learned before about the teams, the drivers that were hired like movie stars to play a role, and just as quickly released for other racing venues (F1 for example) or the business aspect of running a teams in multiple race series (F1, Trans Am, Nascar for example) and the effect that had on owners or drivers.

There were only a couple minor things that bugged me, and that’s down to editting… for example, the info and photos about a car should be on the same pages, right? When the “sucker” car is discussed for 4 or 5 pages, but the photos are all 6 or 7 pages further down, for no reason I can see… that bugs me (pages 140-147) and pages 127 -134 are about the death of Bruce McLaren, but the photos are all about the “Shadow” which gets discussed after the photos were all used in the previous 7 pages. But that was the only quibble I had.

You’re going to see the striking excellence of three teams and it’s amazing, the Penske, the McLaren, and the Hall teams. That such a fantastic group of race car engineers and innovators all were vying for the incredible championship win money, it’s competition level was just absurdly high, and then you also had the drivers that were among the best in the world, Gurney, Hulme, Donohue, McLaren, Parnelli, Phil Hill, George Follmer, Peter Revson, Andretti, and Pedro Rodriguez to name a few.
