Why do we need a 1,000 mph car?
A British team is developing a car that will be capable of reaching 1,000mph (1,610km/h). Powered by a rocket bolted to a Eurofighter-Typhoon jet engine, the Bloodhound SSC (SuperSonic Car) vehicle will mount an assault on the land speed record. The vehicle will be run on Hakskeen Pan in Northern Cape, South Africa, in 2013 and 2014.
Here we are, the human race is on its knees, and we are wasting fuel, resources and money on shit like this!
Lance Armstrong questions punishment
Lance Armstrong has questioned whether he deserves his “death penalty” punishment which means he is banned from all sports because of his use of performance-enhancing drugs.
The cyclist compared his lifelong ban to six-month penalties given to others.
He deserves more .
“admitted he was “sick” and “narcissistic””
He should be castrated as well! We don’t need these genes in the world’s gene pool!
I have not seen the interview nor read all the crap in the news about him. He doesn’t even deserve the notoriety of his actions. His memory should be expunged from the world of sport as though he never existed.
There is nothing he could say, nothing that could be printed by journalists that could mitigate his actions. He should simply be forgotten and never allowed to appear in public media again.
In regards to sport generally, the corruption, violence and scandals, sport has ceased to be sport and it is high time that some drastic steps were taken to return sport to it’s former glory.

Sorry, but I couldn’t figure out the problem.
“after Luis Suarez refused to shake hands with Patrice Evra”
Suarez should have been removed from the field and banned from the game until the matter had been resolved.
His conduct was bloody disgraceful and totally unacceptable. Made even worse by the fact that he was permitted to play reinforcing that it’s okay to be a racist to all present, including the mascots who accompany players on to the field.
People who play sports, particularly at this public level, should be deemed to be above this type of attitude and act like the public representatives they are. Footballers are heroes, and should be seen as heroes; not displaying the cowardice of Suarez.
Suarez has already served an eight match ban after the earlier incident. This time the ban should be for LIFE!
The game doesn’t need him or his shit!
