Considering the other garbage cars manufactures are putting out, I actually like this one... Kind of a cool ad, too.

1. gymkhana just another name for drifting.
2. That is NOTHING like a Group B car.
3. Ken Block sucks at WRC. I'll give him some credit. He has scored some decent victories in lower level rally races, but hes only ever scored 2 points in WRC in almost 4 seasons. I'm not saying hes a bad driver, but hes WAY over-hyped in the US.

Anyone else sick of the Ken Block hype? There are a lot of "good" drivers out there that if they had the money Block does, could do the same ****...if not better. So the guy is popular with the kids because he has some videos on YouTube ******* around in airports with a high HP car. I'm also stick of seeing every douchbag out there with various "M" logos plasterd all over their cars and clothing. Monster products suck.

Ken Block is a dumbass and no one who gobbles up the **** he's pushing knows anything about motorsport. lol @ his new car being designed to win, perhaps they didn't get the memo.

Ah, yes. Here we are.

In this riveting tale, Patrick Rothfuss is recalling days past, when he wrote an advice column for a college newspaper. Here, he responds to a young woman who wrote in, bummed about the fact that she is not allowed to keep pets (except fish) in the dorm. Mr. Rothfuss recounts his own struggle with that rule, and his creative solution to it.

The whole damn audience was just dying. (I wish the video had his intro, that was good too, and sort of segued into this bit.)

What road is that? I feel like I've seen a similar system of roads in a Miata video.
