    I agree #GetWellJules

    For those who don't know,

    Marrusia F1's Jules Bianchi had been involved in a very serious accident at the rain-soaked Japanese Grand Prix a couple of hours ago. He went off the track at the Dunlop Curve (Corner 7) and crashed into the recovery tractor that was recovering Adrian Sutil's Sauber, who also went off at that same point. AFAIK, he was unconscious and had been transported to hospital.

    I would think the entire motor sport community, including virtual, would be thinking of Jules and wishes his full recovery.

    EDIT: OMG! I thought he hit it side on.

    Had a discussion with another guy about the AG technology. He wanted to tell me that the crafts fly on "mag-strips", so they cold float.
    I was destroying him with my true ag-pilot knowledge and just said: "But the magnets could be under sand or ice." Sure mate, but what about previous named mag-strips (the real one, not his floating technology).
    The whole discussion was started by the Hendo Hoverboard trailer-thing.
    At least he spoke german, making it easier for both of us.

    Found out that people being genuinely interested in me freaks me the f*ck out. Like they wanting to talk and stuff makes my brain go like "noooooo, please nooo, you're stepping over the invisible line, don't do it".
    I guess I'm not used to it since all my life I was always the one who started the conversation while the other person sat idle if I said nothing.

    This might be a little triggering for some people, just putting that there. Dont read on if you think you might be.


    You never truly realise just how much you love and care about someone until something awful happens. Tell people you care, tell people you love them, tell people how much they mean to you, make sure they know how special they are and how much they mean to you. Never let them feel like they are alone. Sometimes, thats all people need to hear. Those stupid little things could mean the difference of them being here or not.

    Well said Knux. Good to see you post something ^_^

    In my experience true humanity isn't volunteering for a charity, or donating money to a cause or even donating time to a worthy cause. The truest most meaningful gestures that a society can make are ones based on simply being able to directly impact someone's life on a personal level with no preconceived notion. It is the littlest of things that for me personally, make the biggest impact.

    With all the school shootings or bombings or acts of violence, the true nature of most of these situations is someone just doesn't feel like society cares and they outlash in desperation when all they really needed was for someone to tell them that they mattered. I'm not the greatest humanitarian. In fact, I'm discerning, skeptical, and egotistical. Yet despite all my personal shortcomings, I hold the door for people, I speak politely to strangers, and I try to help people with random acts of humanity when I can. Not because I'm trying to redeem myself, but just to let other random strangers know that I acknowledge their humanity because I think it sets the civilized world apart. It is the type of interaction that justifies humanity as more than just animals acting according to human nature.

    On another note... my in-laws were getting rid of some "junk" that had been stored away for a while and guess what was there about to be taken to the thrift store? A FREAKING N64 IN PRISTINE CONDITION WITH MARIOKART_64 and WIPEOUT_64 WITH THE ORIGINAL BOXES INCLUDING THE BOX THE SYSTEM CAME WITH!!!!!!!!!! Karma? I don't know. But, I'm starting to believe.
