    Possibly the coolest picture ever taken. Because it's very cold in space, but these guys are sub absolute zero cool.

    You'd think ninja warrior training would be easier to do as an adult, but what matters here isn't pure strength so much as strength-to-weight ratio, and in that arena a decently trained kid with unadulterated (ha!) instincts is going to have the advantage over most weekend warriors.

    You see the same issue when adults try to take up gymnastics training, versus a kid starting out.

    Most of what you need is a backstory.
    All jokes aside ANW is one of the 38-2242 shows that I secretly wish to torrent, edit out all the repetition and everything that was unnecessary in the first place, then repackage that as like an eight hour livestream.

    I'm not very sure about Chinese ability to meet safety standards either.

    To be fair, Beijing is perhaps the best at infrastructure construction.

    They're the most experienced, but there have been a multitude of quality, longevity, and safety issues in a lot of their big construction projects. Major dams that start cracking after a year or two, building facades crumbling in short order, etc.

    Don’t really know where to put this, so in this thread it goes.

    Sebastian Vettel is using a tribute helmet at the Monaco GP this weekend to honour Niki Lauda.

    The helmet is an amalgamation of Vettel’s usual design elements (the white ring, sponsor stickers and the stripe with the colours of the German flag on the front, which then adopts the colours of the Austrian flag on the back in Lauda‘s honour) and Lauda’s, as it is painted in the iconic red Niki carried throughout his F1 career, his name in large letters on the side.

    088537FA-BD1F-4405-8834-DA66F6FADF3A.jpeg 8B070FC2-96E6-4768-964B-87F57FD96D99.jpeg BFA8E2A3-4AEC-4103-A0D9-A8E97A57A5A9.jpeg

    The three scenes above show scenes from Lauda’s three championship titles. The middle one was taken at the 1977 USGP East, and shows him laughing with race winner James Hunt to the left (Lauda had clinched the title by finishing fourth that day).

    Contrary to their portrayal in the film Rush, Lauda and Hunt had an amicable relationship, and Lauda openly admitted later (and did so once again in the film’s epilogue) that Hunt was one of the very few people he both liked and respected.

    It‘s utterly fabulous. I‘m not usually a fan of Seb, but he scored himself some major brownie points with that one.

    Update on my previous post:

    Lewis Hamilton raced with a Lauda tribute helmet as well. A bit less elaborate than Vettel‘s, it was the version of the design Lauda ran in his ”second“ F1 career with McLaren. Given their very close relationship, seeing Lewis race and win with it was a special moment.

    Oh, and the Lauda helmets finished 1-2 as well!
