    The Political Cartoon/Image/Meme Thread

    He's just trying to catch up with South Dakota's Kristi Noem and keep up with the rest of CPAC. Here's Noem boasting about not doing all the successful things that Australia did and CPAC giving her a standing ovation. (In case you missed it, S Dakota ranks #2 behind N Dakota in Cases per...

    Global Warming/Climate Change Discussion Thread

    I'm sure these Republican governors know they are killing their people and screwing the planet. But what matters is pandering to morons. And pandering to Trump. Two tweets as evidence:-

    Ability to quickly restart a corner in a practise mode

    If I recall correctly, Forza 3 introduced the ability to "rewind" as you suggest, and I believe it was carried forward into Forza 4. For me the downside was that it "broke my rhythm", so I only used it on longer tracks such as the Nordschleife.

    Abbott knows it's going to kill people. Listen at the link below. However, he wants Trump to love him, and no doubt it will earn him more votes. For some reason, I thought of the intellect of the average Texas Longhorn bull. Then there's South Dakota's governor boasting about not doing the...

    How Does Gran Turismo Sport Play on PlayStation 5 Hardware?

    Thanks for this info. I have been using a G27 via Drivehub, so this is important to me.

    Gran Turismo 7 Releasing in "First Half of 2021"

    On the subject of support for PSVR in Gran Turismo... (and please tell me if I'm wrong, I'd like to be!) It would seem that GT7 will NOT support the existing PSVR in release 1. Why? Because it seems that the only PSVR support on PS5 in general is for PSVR/PS4 games in backward compatibility...

    What would you like to see on the livery editor on GT7?

    So many great ideas. Just so many! I think the vast majority of my wish list items are in this list:- (Did I miss the ability to SAVE groups of decals?)

    News about schools in Israel, which is about to enter a strong lockdown for three weeks. No more than 500 meters travel from home. The author calls out the opening of schools as being a significant part of the massive recent upsurge in cases. "Looking back, as several of the experts warned...

    PS4 Dreams - From the creators of Little Big Planet

    That is ASTOUNDING! The motion is so realistic. I have tried messing around in Dreams and although I have found it fun to play with, I've never created anything of any complexity. Question for you. It seems to me that Dreams doesn't lend itself to supporting an easy method of...

    Test your powers of deduction... Situation: An obese guy is lined up to go to the same in-hospital anti-coagulation lab that I visit each month. The screener at the front desk insisted he position his mask properly over his nose (not just covering his mouth). As soon as he's around the...

    Which book are you currently reading?

    I have three streams going:- A re-read of the George Smiley series of novels by John Le Carre, this time to read to my wife at bedtime. "My Promised Land" by Ari Shavit (Because the Israel situation is very interesting. A great read.) "Mein Kampf" by Adolf Hitler (Which might help me understand...

    The Apple Thread

    I fast-forwarded over the Apple Watch stuff to get to the iPad segment. The emphasis on "feeds and speeds", and features rather than benefits left me a little cold. The reason we are an all-Apple home is because of the integration; the way we can use our Macs, iPhones, iPads and Apple TVs...

    Fun fact: If the USA had fifty (50) TIMES the per capita COVID death rate as New Zealand’s, 113,985 of our people would still be alive. (Data from worldometers) Another fun fact: That’s ALREADY happening. While the Trump administration is ignoring peaceful protesting, Biden is getting...

    GT Sport full PSVR support on PS5 (Suggestions / Requests / Wants :p)

    I’m a big fan of PSVR also. When I’m in the mood for some Time Trials, I always choose to drive in VR rather than looking at the flat screen. If I had my way, I’d be able to drive against real people, even if only limited to one opponent. If I can’t have that, I’d like to be able to drive...

    I'm thinking that the quarantine issue should be regarded more from a moralistic viewpoint than a legalistic one. About 98% of the world's countries report "Active Cases". Of these, the US ranks #1 in Per Capita Active Cases. See graphic below. We can argue about the fact that this...
