Any drinker knows what it’s like to wake up after a night of boozing and think, "I hope I didn't do anything stupid." Chances are, at some point you have. But what happens when your actions under the influence aren’t just embarrassing, but actively cause someone harm? Earlier this month, Brock Turner, a former Stanford student who sexually assaulted an unconscious woman behind a dumpster, propelled this question into the national spotlight when he blamed his crime on a college culture that encourages binge drinking and “sexual promiscuity.” His defense—a clear attempt to eschew blame for his own horrific actions—was largely met with eye rolls and anger from a public disgusted by his lenient prison sentence. Yet while Turner’s words were intended to shift responsibility off himself, his defense raised an important point: A culture that celebrates drunk hookups but rarely discusses how to navigate consent under the influence seems primed for … [Read more...] about What does consent look like when you’re wasted?

What does it look and sound like to set a record lap time of 8m 10.921s in the Nurburgring 24 Hours? You may never know, but the French McLaren GT factory driver Kevin Estre does. He qualified the Doerr Motorsport McLaren 12C GT3 on pole position for the race. Video from the GT3's onboard cameras show Estre's ridiculously fast pace, obviously taking as straight a path as the curvature of the track allows. In the end, he set a record lap time which was more than 6 seconds faster than that of the previous record holder. Oh, and he left his competitors in the dust, too. He was 2.5s ahead of the nearest one when he finished the lap. Damn. … [Read more...] about This Is What It Looks Like When You Set A Nurburgring 24Hrs Record Lap
Tonight, thanks to the Bathurst 1000, the World Endurance Championship’s 6 Hours of Fuji and shortly afterwards, the Formula One Russian Grand Prix, you can watch racing all night long. What’s it like to run in the fastest car from qualifying at Fuji, you ask? Ride along with the #17 Porsche 919 and find out. Welcome to Onboard of the Week, a feature [that I’m going to bring back more often now that racing is slowing down for the year] where we spend that pesky time between races during Fox Sports 2’s long commercial breaks looking at awesome footage from inside the car. We’ve featured onboard footage from the warp-speed low-flying spacecraft known as the 919 before, but it just never gets old. First off, Fuji Speedway is a beautiful track surrounded by mountains. Secondly, this thing whizzes past its GTE-class Porsche brethren like they’re standing still. Thirdly, watch as it blows past even other purpose-built racers in the slower LMP2 class … [Read more...] about What Does It Look Like To Go To Plaid Around Fuji Speedway?

Siri's voice evokes different images for different people. We know she probably doesn't look like a big, hairy guy. So if Siri were real, what would she look like? A contest by Shapeways offers a few different answers to that question. One of the top two winners is "Omniscient Siri" by SaGa Design. It takes the form of a face attempting to escape from an iPhone. It also doubles as a particularly unusual iPhone case. The other winning design, by Eddie Adolf, imagines Siri as a punk-rock cyborg personal assistant sitting at a curved desk taking your questions through a headset. Other favorite designs that received honorable mentions include an image of Siri as a pants-less sexy superhero and Siri as a fritzed-out blockheaded robot wrestling with information overload.
