American Cuisine

I found this web page at lunch.

We recently had someone from the US come over to our office and he was telling us how good food is in America. When asked for examples he listed a number of fast food 'restaurants' and suggested something called 'Sliders'. These are apparently small versions of bigger food. Being America this just means they eat 30 of them instead of 20! :-) The joy according to this chap is the way the fat soaks from one bugger to the next. Nice.

Anyway, the link lists the 30 worst foods in America. I can't believe that most of them are legal.

My personal favourite is the Large Chocolate Oreo Shake which weighs in at a staggering 2600 calories!!

Check out the entire list and tell me if you are still hungry after. :-)

The Las Vegas Death Ray

Apparently the MGM Mirage Vdara hotel's concave construction is focusing the sun on the swimming pool area and cooking guests like a magnifying glass on an ants nest.

Very funny.

Full story here.

A Different Era?

From F1Fanatic.

"Juan Manuel Fangio won his fourth world championship on this day in 1956, in the last race of the season at Monza.

The steering on Fangio’s car broke early in the race, putting him out. That left his Ferrari team mate Peter Collins with a shot at winning the championship, if he won the race and set fastest lap (which was worth an extra point in those days).

But when Collins came into the pits to change tyres with 16 laps to go he spotted Fangio on the sidelines and offered his car to his rival (car-sharing was also allowed). Fangio took it and drove it to second place, enough to claim the by three points from race winner Stirling Moss.

Collins said afterwards he expected he would have other opportunities to win the world championship in the future. But just two years later he was killed in a crash at the Nürburgring."

Can you imagine this happening today? Even if car sharing were allowed I can't imagine Alonso giving his car to Massa if it meant he could win the championship.
