I took Hargrave's post to mean that the $40 million number is what the stock option would be worth today if Stew had taken it. Who knows, though, they may have actually thrown $40 million in actual stock at him (pretty stupid to turn that down if they ... more »

I'm not sure if it's the only reason, but his relationship with Red Bull when Kawi picked up Monster as their title sponsor had something to do with it.

Beautiful bike, mxracer. Who was the sick bastard at Honda who thought it was a good idea to put a left side starter on a 500?

“Prove to me that you’ve cleared jumps way beyond your skill level, or shut the fuck up.” That’s pretty much what you just said. Slipdog is right, dumbass may say he’d never sue a track, but his insurance company never agreed to that. Tribal land or ... more »

I joined in '96, so I missed all that crap. Plus I was an E, so we were pretty much immune to RIFs because our normal turnover rate was pretty high anyway. I've always thought the Intruder was a cool looking jet, but I never got to see one fly off the ... more »

"I don't possess the degree of situational awareness it would take to survive it." You'd be surprised. You seem like you have a decent head on your shoulders, so you're already ahead of the game. I dealt with plenty of window licking mouth breathers ... more »

Yup, we were in the Pacific, but I can't remember where...maybe around Guam? The photo, along with the caption I wrote is in the National Archives, but I can't get the website to come up right now. Moto-moto; No filters, except a UV filter. Like Harry-bro ... more »

I read a story from an old WWII pilot who said you could always tell the Corsair pilots, because one leg was always bigger than the other. He said that because of the giant prop, they had to constantly ride the opposite rudder to counteract the torque. ... more »

There's only two occasions when the food on a carrier is truly outstanding: Tiger Cruise, and when the deployment is getting extended. Anyone who's ever spent time on a Navy ship knows, if you walk onto the mess decks and see steak and lobster, you're

The multiple mentions by Weege and GL, mixed with the footage of the Lucas Oil helo flying around the track were pretty telling as well.

I liked that it gave us an idea of the distance between the different positions. Sometimes with the head-on shots, it looks like they're a lot closer than they actually are. The drone idea is good, but like Joe said, do they have the capability to broadcast ... more »

When we had the big one over here in 2011, we had close to 3000 aftershocks that ranged from barely registering, to a 7.0, so be ready, SoCal folks, you’re probably not done yet.

One of the good things about working on a military base overseas. It costs more to ship pennies here than they're worth, so all of the stores on base just round to the nearest nickle. Only exception is the post office. On topic: I absolutely hate driving ... more »

I agree about the Kawi. Like mx219 said, I think it's probably the seat that doesn't do it for me, but I'm not sure how they could have done it differently. A standard Kawi green seat, or even a black seat would look even worse.

How sketchy was it walking down those hills? They look ridiculously steep on TV, so I can’t imagine how steep they actually are.

I think he starts well, but fades back to 10th - 15th. First race back in quite a while, and on a tough sand track, I'd say that's respectable. I have higher expectations for him at Red Bud, though (6th or 7th overall).

Pretty sure that was 2010, and can you really blame Suzuki for not being ready on that one? Who would have predicted that a guy with only a handful of wins in *250s would come out and smoke both c-ships in his rookie 450 year? *Yes, I know he won the ... more »
