Bloviating Zeppelin

(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

Ken Block on BBC's Top Gear!

This is just a bit of what I used to do at my, ahem, "former" job.

Bloody hell! Mind the pole!

Great fun!


And if you like really expensive cars, how about The Stig in a McClaren F1 vs Richard Hammond in a Bugatti Veyron:

Two of the coolest videos that I've seen in a long time!

I love Top Gear, I have a bunch of episodes my wife's brother burned to DVDs for us. On your recommendation, I am going to commit to the 15 or 20 minutes unfortunately involved in viewing a video snippet with our stellar island internet speed . . .

Omigawd, Steve, I hope you can do it. I'm at the wife's house right now, which has DSL, but at the cabin I have nothing but stupid dial-up -- which is why I have to watch all my videos and make any heavy photograph-intensive posts or VISIT blogsites with video posts here at her house. I simply can't do it on dial-up. My head would explode.

Okay, I just finished watching it, 2 and a half hours to download less than seven minutes so I will be skipping the second video. I have to say the first was one of the coolest things ever - timing the plane in the background for the jump sequence was a bit of filming excellence, thanks for sharing!

What is this *Dial Up* thing of which you speak?

Your language is strange, antiquated and crude. DSL, Dial Up?

FIOS man, FIOS is where it's at!!

Form one old gearhead, I gotta say - that Hammond dude sure gets to drive some wicked rides.

And rally driving? That is simply the best of all worlds, rolled into one race.

Thanks, BZ. You've made my evening. Don't tell TMBWitW, though!

You gotta admit, both of those videos were absolutely WICKED good!
