Cinderella Story


By John Ross Harvey

Congratulations are in order for the Brawn GP Formula 1 team.
Months ago as team Honda, they were forced to withdraw the team
due to financial reasons, however a buyer was certainly being sought.

Many like myself, expected Sir. Richard Branson to step in, after all, this is a billionaire's sport, and he is one.

Mere weeks ago, the team Engineer and manager Ross Brawn was confirmed
as the new owner, and promptly began the team as status quo, with new Mercedes engines, instead of Honda which had withdrawn from the sport.

Winter testing showed them to be very quick, and most suspected they were light, and that Ferrari and McLaren were holding back.
Suffice it to say, they were completely underestimated.

They arrived in Australia with a large fan base, which included Sir Richard Branson, who decided on race weekend that he would sponsor the team.
Last minute as the decision was, it amounted to a few stickers on the helmets and the cockpits of each car. He claimed he didn't have enough carry on for paint.

Brawn GP qualified 1-2 on the grid. Thanks to some poor thought takeover manouvres, by the drivers running 2nd and 3rd, taking each other out of contention, they finished the race 1-2 as well.

A prouder moment for these two drivers, their team principal, and their new sponsor could not possibly happen. This was a true Cinderella story.

They were going to miss the ball, got the last minute opportunity to show up, and stole the hearts of many.

Congratulations Brawn GP, Jenson Button, Rubens Barrichello, and the self described "Lucky Bastard" Sir Richard Branson.

Well done!

Pole Position Syndrome

By John Ross Harvey

I’m sure you’ve noticed that some individuals
Have a serious problem
With being behind anyone
Regardless of where they are going.
They will drive behind you in a right hand lane
Pull ahead of you in the left lane
And immediately turn to the right
At the next intersection or interchange.
What possible purpose does this serve?
I knew you were stupid before you did that.
Why highlight the fact?
The incessant need to be in front of the next guy
Must be Pole Position Syndrome.
I cannot function unless nobody is in front of me?
For race drivers this may be a good thing
As it helps their teams win races
But for the average motorist on the city streets
It does nothing but prove a lack of intelligence.
The world will be a better place
If the PPS infected individuals take a deep breath
And actually turn right, while still behind you.

Stupid Americans

By John Ross Harvey

In the last few days we've had greedy executives steal money from the government for executive bonuses, which considering the fact it was BAILOUT money makes it all the more disgusting and dispicable. I've heard some have offered to return the money.
SOME...have OFFERED... to RETURN the money?

IT"S NOT YOUR MONEY! You shouldn't be offering, you should be returning it.
As for the bigger idiots that decided they would not return the money, send me their names and I'll publish them!

Then we have the loser at FOX, on the RED EYE.
Completely offensive, and entirely misinformed dumbass host, thinks that all the dead soldiers we've given in their country's war with Afghanistan's Taliban regime, should not be allowed to take a break from saving their dumb asses. How about we trade them for you, as see how you feel about it!

There are of course many examples of American Stupidity, but these are most noticeable currently!

Do your part and tell these clowns, to wake up, because their minds are obviously asleep!
