…It’s Things Thursday: Clarkson Supercar Showdown?

I would gladly trade ten years off of the end of my life to be Jeremy Clarkson for a day.


Jeremy Clarkson - Supercar ShowdownBecause the man gets handed the keys to some of the most exclusive cars in the world, and then gets paid to drive them. Hard.

We’re talkin’ tire smoking, opposite locking, pedal to the floor hard; and then some. Top Gear must have to have a separate budget just for the rubber they go through each episode.

Bugatti, Ferrari, Porsche and Lamborghini; if it costs more than a house, then chances are, Jeremy has been behind the wheel.

Which is why I can’t wait to pick up a copy of his new film, Supercar Showdown. In it, Clarkson road and track tests some of the most expensive supercars currently roaming the roads. Models include the Ferrari 430 Spider and 599 GTB Fiorano, Lamborghini Gallardo and Murcielago Roadsters, Bugatti Veyron, Audi R8, Porsche 911 GT3, Radical SR3, Aston Martin V8 Roadster and Ascari A10.

If a laundry list of the automotive elite isn’t enough to tempt you, then just check out this:

See what I mean?

It’s available November 5.

…March 24 is Shutdown Day?

Shutdown Day

Tomorrow, March 24, is Shutdown Day, an experiment to see what will happen if everyone shuts off their computers for one day and goes outside and into the real world for a while. I’m going to be participating, which means that for the first time in over six months, I’m not going to post any updates to DYH. Scary, huh? Don’t worry though, as I’ll be back on Sunday to make it up to you; so make sure you check back then for something really special.

Can’t leave your computer, even for one day? Don’t worry; you don’t have to. Just turn it off, and then enjoy it like these people do:

Oh, and if you’re reading this on March 24, stop, shut down your computer, and go outside. Your life will thank you.
