Hey, have you heard any of the 2014 F1 cars yet? They sound a bit tame.

I hear Hamilton wrote his off in testing, he claims that when he braked the car didn’t but other than that, no.

I heard last year that they were going to return to V6’s that’s a couple of pots the direction to my way of thinking.

You sparked my interest and I did a little research since yesterday and am not very impressed. This is the most comprehensive write up I’ve seen

It’s a wee bit on the heavy side so this is far easier to digest

We’ll have to watch the first couple of races and see what difference it makes.

I think the new engine will soon return similar times because ERS is so much larger than the old KERS. However... with only 100kg of fuel allowed people will have to back off quite a bit, which can be frustrating.
There's a fairly tragic piece on Sky F1 channel where the commentators try to imitate the sound of the six potter. Brundle's impression was silent: he said his engine had already failed.
<quoted text>
ERS-K will make a hell of a difference, as to whether it’s a competitive edge or a piece of fancy technology ???

Me I’d say it was the modern equivalent of a NOX button to be used in place of driving skill.

The more I read the less enthusiastic I am getting about this season.

I don’t do Sky but LOL

Ok, since i can't decide who is christian and who is not, you aren't a atheist, no one can say if you're an atheist.
I can't deny you a christian, therefore you are christian. Therefore, technically everyone on this planet is christian.
Depending on someones personal definition then yes, by their personal definition that person isnt a true christian.

Now the rub is when it's uttered by people like yourselves who have single handedly destroyed all their own credibility with their blatant dishonesty, and have shown an *amazing* ability at being wrong most of the time about damn near everything. Hell you probably get your name wrong half the time and if it went against your religion you'd lie about it.

Nope, a cristian is someone whose believes in christ. See wrong again.

Do you check for any kind of accuracy when you talk or wright or do you just throw shit at a wall??

Oh, and are you still sock proping for your self still??

the statement was such: deal out all 52 cards (record the order) now shuffle and deal out all 52 cards again the probablility that the two hands mach is:

You don't realize what words i could think of saying to you.
But as a solid christian, i don't swear.
BUT ONE THING. Stop being a retard and stop saying who i am, because i am a very loving person. I might angry, i might argue, i might call names(at least not racist names), but that is life.
When i posted all atheists are despicable, but that doesn't prove a thing about me.
I am loving, i am friendly.
BUT CAN I SAY.
ATHEISTS SAID ALL CHRISTIANS ARE EVIL(DESPICABLE).
THAT IS A HATE POSITION.
christianity is a failed moral philosophy, you are a fine example.

Atheists say all Christians are evil. BTW, I just because i say you are despicable doesn't mean i hate you.
It's like a child saying he hates his parents for scolding him, but he actually loves them.
Also, read this carefully. I know myself better than you with ease. My heart doesn't hate. I love animals, my family, people, my girlfriend, my friends, and most important, LIFE.
But it seems you atheists don't have much of a life, because most of it is thinking about how much you HATE CHRISTIANS.
I despise what christianity has done to you

Why am I supposed to care what the mainstream religion is? Christianity unfortunately still exists because it is considered mainstream. It has three ways of spreading.
1) Indoctrination
2) Need of comfort
3) Conformism
I make my decision. I respect your beliefs, you respect mine.

Unfortunately, that is very true.

Can you say that again please but with your gobbledygook switch turned off

If you are definite then please provide proof otherwise you are not definite but you do have faith. There is a bit of a difference between “definite” and “I think”

No, not really. An atheist is just a person who is not a theist. That's all, until you are indoctrinated, and made a theist, you were as everyone is before indoctrination .... an atheist.

Doubt that Atheism is dying as a philosophy as people have believed in God and doubted God for thousands of years.
Polls, a fetish :-) of the 21 century, have predicted the demise of one or the other with limited success.
Difficult to predict a persons belief as it may change through a persons life?

In naming Blase Cupich Archbishop of Chicago, he's sending another big message

In one of his first homilies after his election, Pope Francis said that bishops need to be so close to their people that they come home with the “smell of the sheep.” Blase Cupich apparently got the memo. Even before Jorge Mario Bergoglio was elected Pope Francis, Cupich was practicing the art of accompaniment with considerable success.

In 2012, when the Obama Administration introduced a troublesome healthcare mandate that required all Catholic employers to provide contraception for their employees, many bishops threaten to shutdown Catholic soup kitchens and social service providers rather than abide by the mandate. While Cupich too opposed the mandate, he thought the threats to close Catholic providers were too extreme. He realized that these ministries were crucial to the people in his community and thought the idea of closing them were unnecessary “scare tactics.”

Another key characteristic of a Pope Francis bishop is simplicity. Francis has derided bishops who live with the “psychology of princes.” He even fired the German “bishop of bling” Franz-Peter Tebartz-van Elst who spent over 40 million euros renovating his residence. Cupich currently lives in a room in his diocese’s seminary and owns no furniture. One of his first major decisions as the archbishop of Chicago will be whether or not he wants to sell the diocese’s luxurious mansion in Lincoln Park. Based on Cupich’s past, it wouldn’t be surprising if he did in fact spurn the archbishop’s mansion.

The final characteristic of a Francis bishop is a humble engagement with society. Francis—rejecting the “cultural warrior” paradigm of religious leadership—says:“[r]eligion has the right to express its opinion in the service of the people, but God in creation has set us free: it is not possible to interfere spiritually in the life of a person.” When the State of Washington was considering same-sex marriage at the ballot box in 2012, Cupich—while opposing the measure—affirmed the viewpoint of those who supported the initiative:

“Proponents of the redefinition of marriage are often motivated by compassion for those who have shown courage in refusing to live in the fear of being rejected for their sexual orientation. It is a compassion that is very personal, for those who have suffered and continue to suffer are close and beloved friends and family members. It is also a compassion forged in reaction to tragic national stories of violence against homosexuals, of verbal attacks that demean their human dignity, and of suicides by teens who have struggled with their sexual identity or have been bullied because of it.”

Cupich, like Francis, has instead chosen to use his political capital to lead on economic inequality. At a conference in Washington, DC last June, Cupich joined other Catholic leaders in denouncing libertarianism as antithetical to Catholic social values.“Realities are greater than ideas,” Cupich said at the conference.“Instead of approaching life from the 30-thousand-feet level of ideas,[Pope Francis] challenges policy makers and elected officials — indeed all of us — to experience the life of everyday and real people.”

Jesus says in the Gospel of John that the Holy Spirit is a “wind that blows where it will.” If that’s the case, it’s no surprise that the new spirit enlivening the Catholic Church made its first major American stop in the Windy City on its trans-Atlantic adventure from Rome.

In naming Blase Cupich Archbishop of Chicago, he's sending another big message

Over the weekend, Francis named Bishop Blase Cupich of Spokane, Washington as the next archbishop of Chicago. Cupich’s stunning promotion from a diocese with 90,000 Catholics to the &#8203;third-largest diocese in the country with over 2.2 million Catholics was considered a long shot to most Vatican insiders.
