Because it sounds like the bigger story behind this is that Putin wants Porsche to build a V12 which will then be reverse-engineered into V8s and V6s all of which will presumably be manufactured in Russia. This will simultaneously boost the economy (he hopes) and give Russian manufacturing a bit of promotion on the… » 10/25/14 12:54pm Yesterday 12:54pm

In fairness to Hunter Strickland after Perez hit that walk off in the WC game he gave an interview and I honestly couldn't tell what language it was. It sounded like it MIGHT have been English, but I can't even say that with 50% confidence. I'm sure that when he's calm he speaks both languages well, but when he's… » 10/23/14 10:35am Thursday 10:35am

You're being unfair to these brands. Unlike Gawker Mercedes, Intel, and Adobe have a lot to lose. Gawker has always buttered its bread on the "yeah, we don't give a fuck what you think and if you're okay with that then fine" type of mentality, but those companies have manicured images to look out for. Even if it's all… » 10/22/14 6:15pm Wednesday 6:15pm

I'd be interested to read the initial email. Regardless of its contents the response is absolutely outrageous, but was an affiliation with a Muslim Student Organization referenced in ANY WAY or was this just some straight up, good ole fashion profiling? » 10/22/14 5:42pm Wednesday 5:42pm

Boy he really fuckin danced on that guy who really should've stayed at home to treat his inner ear infection instead of starting in his first ever beer league hockey game. There's giving up on the play and then there's giving up on life. » 10/22/14 4:40pm Wednesday 4:40pm

If you're white and sound white then you're fine. Flew today out of O'Hare and had some Thai food that obliterated my sinuses. So I was sniffling and the whole 9 and no one even looked at me once. System's absolutely rigged as fuck, but what can ya do? » 10/21/14 3:47pm Tuesday 3:47pm

You and I have two very different definitions of "exactly". The Pokemon Company knows "exactly" what the fuck we want and they just won't (or can't) give it to us right now so they're coming out with a bunch of gimmicky bullshit to act as a holding pattern. » 10/21/14 3:14pm Tuesday 3:14pm

The only thing I've found even slightly questionable is the lack of a travel ban. Until it has been contained what would be the harm in temporarily restricting travel? Just as a preventative measure. Letting people who have potentially been exposed to Ebola travel internationally is how you take a regional tragedy and… » 10/18/14 5:54pm 10/18/14 5:54pm

This is stupid. Why would you not buy a Model S exactly the same way that you'd buy a "traditional car"? The Model S IS a traditional car. If a car didn't have the features that you wanted would you buy it or would you wait until they released it with those features? Don't be stupid. And it's funny how they think they… » 10/17/14 4:44pm 10/17/14 4:44pm

Good. I love the Bengals and Burfict is critical to their success defensively, but shit like that has no business happening on the field. It certainly looked intentional to me (or at least the one against Cam did) and at the very least he should be heavily fined. No one that bitched about Kimo Von Oelhoffen's hit on… » 10/14/14 2:09pm 10/14/14 2:09pm
