    Why are we English so shit at coping with anything other than overcast skies and drizzle?

    As soon as the sun comes out it's "too hot," and every single one of us gets sunburned and ends up looking like a spanked arse, the roads melt and all the trains break down.
    As soon as there's an inch of snow all the cars crash into each other, all the trains de-rail and all the idiots go and buy every single loaf of bread and pint of milk on the shelves - case in point, my cousin's mom asked her to go and get another pint of milk on her way round for dinner as they "only have 4 in the fridge."

    This happens every year! Surely the idiots in government would have realised by now that this happens every year, without exception, and they should perhaps invest in things like more grit lorries and trains that work in the wet and heat (or just plain work in general).

    Hell, the French cope with this shit all the time, and they're French!

    How would you Amercains know which is best when only 20% of you actually hold a passport? You are so secular that Iraqis and Afghans know more about the world than you!

    Quote from USA Today: Though many Americans travel, millions more don't venture out to see or experience the world. About 80% of Americans do not hold a passport. Many of those have stubbornly held worldviews based on little more than TV news. Travel gives us a firsthand look at the complexity and struggles of the rest of the world, enabling us to digest news coverage more smartly.

    Travel helps us celebrate — rather than fear — diversity. On a trip through Afghanistan, I was eating lunch in a Kabul cafeteria. An older man joined me with his lunch, intent on making one strong point. He said, "I am a professor here in Afghanistan. In this world, one-third of the people use a spoon and fork like you, one-third use chopsticks, and one-third use fingers — like me. And we are all civilized."

    Have a read this may enlighten you!

    here are more great examples of how silly this conversation is. Europe thanks for the help starting, but we here in the US said good by for a reason. If you listen you may learn. at one point the sun never set on the english empire. today its only up for about 34 min.
    1 of the three ships in the pic is a euro carrier. its so small they cant land real jets on it. its so small they need what is called a "ski jump"(invented here in the us) to get the plain airborn. the name of the 3 ships is as follows. hell we even name our ships better.
    HMS Illustrious, USS Harry S. Truman, and USS Dwight D. Eisenhower

    Lets settle this an easy way. This discussion should should have a foundation to start on. what qualities do you feel should be part of the discussion? this list above shows

    CELEBRITIES: that is going to be the US all the war. there are many celebrities in Europe, but no where as many as in the US.
    1 Point US.

    MOVIES: The best movies i have seen from across the pond in a while was Pan's Labrinth. great movie(and did she really die at the end or go to another world?) but it boils down to pure numbers. Europe does not have where as many hits as the US, nor are they just as often. Hell Bollywood is as much more of a threat to Hollywood than Europe is.
    1 Point USA

    VIDEO GAMES:this is a no brainer. there are good game studio's in Europe, but not many.
    1 Point USA

    TEETH:thats just a supid comparison. if that is true then all Americans are fat. Yet we have all seen Megan Fox and know that all american are not fat. you could go to the back woods of the US or Europe and see probly the same level of bad teeth.
    0 Points. Draw

    FOOTBALL:this is a hard one. this really depends on where you live. i will have to call this one a draw based on the fact there is nothing about one that makes it a clear cut winner.
    0 Points Draw.

    CARS:here is the fun part. so many people think this is a slam dunk to Europe. the facts are that the US made SSC holds the world record for 100mph to 0mph(the breaking reacord) the world speed record and the skid pad g rating(how fast a car can take a corrner). when it comes to sports cars the US wins if you are picking one USA car vs one Europe car. Lets face it, when it comes to trucks, well does Europe even make 4x4 trucks?
    1 Point US

    ARMY:do i really need to say anything? the US has the best in the world hands down.
    1 Point US

    INVENTIONS:another hard one. Europe did have a couple of thousand year head start on us. so they did invent things like, law and religion as we know it today. But here in the US we have the AK 40 backon. when compared over a time line of the last 100 years its too close to call. but when the entire body of work Europe has made is considered its Europe.
    1 Point Europe

    TV SHOWS:there are many shows that are wonderful in Europe and some of them even made it over here. But TV goes to the US for: Simpsone, South Park, The Late Show, Jeparity, Mash, Cheers, and many others that define even today what tv is. Europe you have a lot of good shows, just no where near as many.
    1 Point USA

    6 Points USA, 1 Point Europe
    USA FOR THE WIN!

    Ya just saying that Europe didn't invent law or religion that would historically be traced back to Mesopotamia and Egypt. Other than that I have no problem with what you said with everything else.

    OK. I've only seen one game but I prefer Basketball. Saw one of Jordans last games and it blew me away so Id give you the point. I would have said Inventions was a draw not European win as you cant account for things like Europe inventing the car, but the US being responsible for it taking over the world so fast.

    Just thought that how many people enjoy a sport is the only way really to judge its success or worth. But I hadn't thought of the relative cheapness to play thing you mentioned.

    The reason many of us don't hold passports is because there are only 3 main countries in North America (USA, Canada, and Mexico). While you all have some 60+ countries in Europe. Besides no one really wants to go to Mexico at the moment and you didn't need a passport to go to Canada until just recently.

    Fail time:

    1. The electric light bulb was invented in Thomas Alva Edison's lab, which is in America.

    2. The first submarine, invented by American David Bushnell in America.

    3. No American knows what the UK is like? I've been to England several times, and yes I am American.

    An invention that blows almost all other inventions out of the water. (Created in America)

    The Alternating Current. Invented by Nikola Tesla, in America. Imagine this was never invented. Your house would run on the only other current, direct current (by the way, also invented in America by Thomas Alva Edison) You would turn on the lights in the kitchen, they would be as bright as they should be, you go on into the dining room and turn on the light, the lights would dim because every electrical object in your house would take the same route back to the energy source, eventually, if you turn on enough electrical devices, you eventually will lose power. Obviously, this doesn’t happen because of alternating current. All electrical devices take their own route back to the source of power so all electrical devices work to their fullest extent.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_the_aircraft_carrier

    I guess it depends on your definitions of invention. You're right about the first take off and land onto a ship judging by this page. But they were on ships converted from other uses. Its difficult to judge with similar experiments taking place in many countries at once. HMS Ark Royal (1914) is usually given as the first true aircraft carrier, that is the first ship built with the sole purpose of operating planes in a military connotation, which planes could both take off and return to, while HMS Argus (1918) was the first carrier with a flat top deck running the full length of the ship. The RN was also the first to launch an airborne attack against other ships during the battle of Taranto. But theres room for argument and it depends upon your definitions, if you think its launching a plane from a ship or having a ship dedicated to launching planes.

    It was 'the bad guys', the Argentines I mean. It was a US ship from WWII which had been sold to Argentina after the war. It survived Pearl Harbour and the whole war, got nicknamed the luckiest ship in the US navy, then when it was sold it was renamed the Belgrano.

    Well you said in a previous post "Ukraine is part of Europe, therefore Chernobyl is Europe's Fault". I'm just trying to argue that geographic location is not the deciding factor in determining responsibility in this instance. It happened while Ukraine was under the control of a non-European country. The only analogy I can think of is saying that the Boston Massacre is America's fault because it happened in what is now the USA, even though it happened at a time when the United States didn't exist and the area in which it happened was under the control of a foreign power.

    so you are saying what is popular is whats better? berline 1940 it was popular to burn books, does that make it wright? i can't give you soccer due to the fact that yes it is more popular around the world but my question is this. if you live in a country where you only make $1,000 a year what would you do? buy all the equipment needed for a proper game of football, or just go buy a ball and play soccer? part of the reason, not all of the reason, soccer is so poppular is that all you need is a ball to play. not the case with football. you are correct that soccer is the worlds most poppular sport. i have been to a Man U game before. great time. the passion and singing were wonderful. i can now die a happy man knowing i have seen at least one propper soccer game. in the same breath come to an american football game. not the pro game, i mean a college game in the deep south where tail gaiting was invented. Ever seen a $500,000.00 motor home? its common place at an University of Alabama game is Tuscalosa. the party for a football games usually starts Wensday before the game that is played on Sat. as a certified appraiser i can not say that one football it better than the other. they are diffrent. its like comparing apples to oranges.

    I do get you. I think Western Russia is sometimes called European Russia. But you yourself provided a list of countries within Europe (Which must have come from some source, I know I couldnt rattle them off) and if we have to defend Russia too we've got no chance :D

    And I think the continental border can change. Im shit at geography but I dont think at that end of Europe theres a coastline or continental shelf or mountain range to physically define where Europe ends and Asia begins, its just an arbitrary line along state borders, and at the time of Chernobyl there was no border between Ukrain and USSR, as it was all USSR.

    Besides all of which 'Europe' can have different meanings, and the picture in the original post which started all this does juxtapose the stars and stripes with the lag of the European Union, which is just an alliance of some European states and not the whole continent.

    Yes but if Hermann Goering doesn't get any interest in his house he lowers the price and finds its worth when he meets a price where somebody is willing to buy it.

    You mentioned the price of gold. Compared to, for instance, tin gold has no inherent value. For most of history its been useless, apart from modern use in electricals and in the last couple of centuries for making some kinds of glass. It's too soft to make weapons or tools out of and is just innert and heavy. Its only value is in what somebody is willing to pay for it.

    So of two identical watches would you rather have the tin plated one or the gold one? The gold one will scratch easier mind.

    Don't get me wrong... I love the USA. But I think Europe as a whole wins...

    The biggest Problem about america is that most people are ignorant and very arogant. That's not just a stereotype. It's a fact.
    When I stayed in the US for an exchange year people asked me stuff like "Do you have internet in germany?" "Do you have cars?" "Pizza/Fries/Beer/Whiskey is from America!" and many other things...

    By the way. The big German car brands BMW, Audi and Mercedes have an arrangement to not produce cars that go faster than a certain speed.

    And the world war arguments..... America had no other choice than helping Europe. If europe gets destroayed and our economy goes down, americs will go down, too. Same the other way round... We can't exist without each other.

    So people of America get out of your "perfect little world", stop being megalomaniacs (I hope it's the right word) and don't think you rule the world. More people will like you and the US will truely be the greatest country in the world.

    Besides. We all need to stick together inorder to win against the commis from Rusia and CHina. All except France. Nobody needs france...

    Tesla was the first to have the idea to transfer data wirelessly. i guess we have yet to reach his idea. but what we use wireless internet for today is the dream that Tesla had. good post, it is a very difficult question to answer. but i believe that tesla was the first to have the idea of the net.

    that is true, but in the same vane he also wanted the same energy to have information, like tv, radio and what we now call the net. he was thinking it. and it was all going to be wireless

    What sucks is after his death, the government took all his plans and patents. Did you know he was working on a death ray at that time? Imagine if the government actually made it work. Tesla was way ahead of his time. His Alternating Current Induction Motor when coupled with some modern equipment is one of the most efficient motors in the world, and it was created over a century ago. Just some things I've picked up from doing History Fair on this guy. I did a documentary, would you like to see?

    Yeah, I know that was completely off topic.

    I dont think I did miss the point. The original post was about what was invented or created in either Europe or the USA, not who took whose creations and made them the biggest. I'm not in any way trying to argue that the US carriers are smaller or less powerful because clearly they are not, but you are the one who deliberately included the fact that the ski jump was invented in America, from which I inferred that you believed that the curent British carriers were undermined because they were only made possible by an American invention; the ski-ramp. I followed that to the conclusion that the basis of your argument, the US super-carrier, was undermined because it was only made possible by a British invention; the aircraft carrier concept.

    Just for shits and giggles lets look at the top 3 fastest cars in the world;


    1. SSC Ultimate Aero: 257 mph, 0-60 in 2.7 secs. Twin-Turbo V8 Engine with 1183 hp, base price is $654,400. Tested in March 2007 by Guinness world records, The SSC Ultimate Aero takes the lead as the fastest car in the world beating Bugatti Veyron.

    2. Bugatti Veyron: 253 mph, 0-60 in 2.5 secs. Aluminum, Narrow Angle W16 Engine with 1001 hp, base price is $1,700,000. With the highest price tag, no wonder this is rank #2

    3. Saleen S7 Twin-Turbo: 248 mph, 0-60 in 3.2 secs. Twin Turbo All Aluminum V8 Engine with 750 hp, base price is $555,000. Smooth and bad-ass, will make you want to show it off non-stop

    ssc ultimate aero red thumbnail

    bugatti veyron main post thumbnail

    saleen s7 twin turbo orange front view thumbnail



    my goodness are 2 of the 3 worlds fastest cars from the US? is the worlds fastest car from the US? why yes they are. i love the price diffrence too. i love how eurocars are 2nd to none when it comes to cost. how they handle is a diffrent matter. the veyrone is a wonderful car, but it has nothing on the ssc or the s7.

    correction... bugatti veyron SuperSport is the fastest car in the world... the last time it was maxed out it reached 268 mph, 1,200 horsepower and STILL has normal car stuff (like windscreen wipers and a radio, leather seats etc)

    yes the cars are purpose made sports cars. i hope they do make money. the veryone is whats called a show car. its there to get peoples attention and draw them into a show room. thats why its made at a loss.
    the SSC(no relation to carol shelby) holds not only the speed world record, but also the 100-0 braking world record and the skid pad g rating world record. it goes faster, stops quicker and makes a turn faster than any other car.
    also my figures show that the veryone is the quickes to 0-60mph. it should be. its 4 wheel drive. 4 wheel drive is wonderful for launching out of the hole since it has more traction. but it soon becomes a curse at speed since the 4wd is heavy. there is a reason that f-1 cars are only 2wd. after 60 though the veryone will be left in the dust.
    the true merit of a car is not 0-60 but 60-200. no car in the world can keep up with the ssc. speed is not the end all, but many people on this post seem to feel that europe holds the record. i am just trying to educate. hell i personally drive a STi and have an FJ for rock crawling.
    let me ask you this. do you think an enzo can turn? i do. i also know that the world skidpad record was once held by the enzo. want to know what car beat out the enzo for its ability to turn? yep the SSC.
    in closeing the Veryone is a wonderful car. a modern marvel. but it is too heavy. the engine is too complicated. if you want a car that drives for you the veryone is for you but if you want to be in control yourself get the SSC. People love the SSC for the same reasone they love the McClarian F1. its a drivers car with attention paid to performance only.
    if i had to drive from one side of the US to the other i would want the Veryone. its a very comfortable car. but if i want to win a race it would be the SSC.

    Reply
  • 1

    SSC is in the process of building a luxury version. a funny side not is that there will be a stripped down version of the Veryone on the way. i wonder which will be quicker. thats a race i am looking forward to.
    make no mistake, i am a gear head. i have a lot of respect for what the veryone is. a modern marvel. but the fact is the car was built for one purpose, top speed. top speed has fallen to an american car. now what does truly impress me is that a car like the ssc also beat out the enzo on the skid pad. any car nut will tell you that is something to be proud of.

    I meant if the watches were the same price.

    I was looking up diminishing returns and found these which make my point better:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paradox_of_value
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Opportunity_cost

    In a capitalist market my Nazi cars worth would be set by either how much I could get for it from any two people, one of whom could be me: so if for example only one person in the world wanted it and offered me 50,000 for it and I turn it down, then I would essentially exchanged 50,000 for it, showing that it is worth that to me. the oppertunity cost was 50,000.

    So anybody who buys a Veyron is weighing up the oppertunity cost of 2 and a bit SSC's and is deciding against that oppertunity cost.

    That's capitalism as opposed to communism where the manufacturer of a good would be restricted by the government to what would be considered by the government to be a 'fair' price considering its cost to make and the hours put in, so that the manufacturer was not profiteering from the buyer.

    america can not really talk as it became rich from the resources, as its economy was in its early stages for a long time, it became a great oppurtunity for people around the world. so if u are a proud american, dont be proud of the people but of the fact that it offers such a freedom.

    i am sorry i thought we were here to debate facts. fact the f22 is the top dog in the air. please europe tell me what do yall have that even comes close? the best i could find was a euro fighter. i agree that since the euro fighter is such a last gen POS it is not fair to compair the two. but its the best yall have. prove me wrong. name one other fighter in the WORLD that can stand up to the f22. www.janes.com has yet to find it.
    and you have to carriers on the way? well no what are you trying to compensate for? not being as good as the US. i didn't ask if you needed the super carriers, i asked what is better. please tell me how a smaller carrier is better? even though the us marine corp has more pocket carriers than the royal navy. its ok lads, i know you don't want to admit defeat. but please tell me this and i will shut up
    What do you have that is better than
    1. The US Super Carriers?------nothing since we are the only one's in the world with them
    2. The F-22? nothing since we have the only 6th gen fighter. the closest you have would be comparing the euro fighter to a JSF(that the Joint Strike Fighter for the undereducated erotrash)
    3. What car do you have that can hold up to the SSC; the SSC holds the world speed record, 100-0 breaking record and the skid pad record. it can go faster, stop faster, and take a turn faster than any other car. if i am wrong please tell me what car can match it?
    well the challange has been given to you euro trash. now are you going to ignore it or are you going to step up to the challange? i know that the french have already given up.

    only recently have you in needed carriers??? do you not study your own history? man the brithish CO for the faulklans war would disagree. but then again you are probly too young to know any better. so shhhh watch and learn.

    if you live in europe and can read thank a teacher
    if you live in europe and don't speak russian or german, thank an American. for you see yall can moan and groan about how great you think you are, but to us in the US, yall are nothing more than the red headed step child. we love yall, yall are part of the family, but hell you are the screwed up part of the family. once again thanks europe for saving america during WWI or WWII, on my bad its the other way around huh. our boys fight so that yall can keep being eurotrash, just like we like it.

    the US was the first to launch and land an airplane on a ship. i am not perfect, unlike the rest of the people on here, so if i made a mistake please site a refrance so that i may learn.

    "Numerous countermeasures put in place in the months and years after the accident to protect water systems from transfers of radioactivity from contaminated soils were generally ineffective and expensive. The most effective countermeasure was the early restriction of drinking water and changing to alternative supplies. Restrictions on consumption of freshwater fish have also proved effective in Scandinavia and Germany, though in Belarus, Russia and Ukraine such restrictions may not always have been adhered to."

    "The Shelter was erected in a short period under conditions of severe radiation exposure to personnel. Measures taken to save construction time and to reduce the high dose rates inside the structure led to imperfections in the Shelter as well as to lack of comprehensive data on the stability of the damaged Unit 4 structures. In addition, structural elements of the Shelter have degraded due to moisture-induced corrosion during the nearly two decades since it was erected. The main potential hazard of the Shelter is a possible collapse of its top structures and release of radioactive dust into the environment."

    well done guys your counter measures are just to say don't go there and don't drink the water. is that what you call cleaning it up?
    The structures built to keep radiation fallout from contaminating the air are failing. good job guy.
    From the Dixie Brewery to Cafe DuMond and Burbon st i have pics from all over the city. its my job to know. but since you are such a child i will let you find you own pics. why should i help a child? a spoiled rotten child.

    i am a land appraiser. i am not sure if yall have jobs that are similar but your question is wright up my alley. this is what i do to make a living. so let me ask you a question and to you sir i mean it. you have been openen minded and i have enjoyed posting with you. the question is about value.
    if you are buying a home and see two homes that are very similar in every way, size, square feet, location, location, location. these two houses are the same in every way except 1
    House A is a typical home. similar in all ways to the other house you are looking for. this house cost $100,000.
    Now you are looking at the other house. this house is the exact same except it has solid gold nazi shwaticas every where. due to the price of gold and the time it took to create these gold schwatics this house cost $500,000. is the house with the nazi schwaticas better? my experiance is no. the public does not care for this personalised expression. the house on the right would sell very quickly under a normal market conditions as where the nazi house will take quite a bit longer to sell. being more expensive does not equate to being better.

    Reply
  • 0

    the watch question would depend on price. here is another example of the point i am trying to show you;
    if you buy a new car and then customise it do you think you will get back full price? you love the nazie(not you but i think you get it) paint job, the nazie rims(spinners i am sure) and the nazie shifter. you spent a lot of money. but the public on large will not care unless you can find some one just like you.
    like i said your cars do cost more to make. but to some one like me i don't want to listen to the radio with the back massager on while doing 250+mph. you may but i don't. there is a reason race cars don't have power windows and leather seats. they are nice but don't help you go faster. are you familiar with the concept of "point of dimishing returns"?

    Reply
  • 0

    first off Ruleb you get a point for a good debate. you thinking is sound. so +1 for you.
    you can not be a buyer of your own goods if you want it to be considered "amrs leanth". the key word in arms leanth would be a typical average buyer and not a fan. go ask any local real estate agent or a land appraiser. it might cost 1,000 but it may only be worth 100. depends on the market. the average market. i sure you understand that a star trex themed van may sell for much higher at a star trek convention than it would sitting in a typical car lot.
    let me ask you this. if you spend 20,000 to install a swimming pool is your home going to sell for 20,000 more?
    there is no denying that it cost more to build a veryone. but that price does dot make it go faster. power to weight makes it go faster. its all about what the people want. if they want to go fast with an ac they buy a verone. if they want to go faster than the verone they buy the ssc

    OK I may be in the wrong for having got sidetracked into trying to argue that the comparison of prices makes one or the other better, which isn't necessarily true since they're meant for different things. The SSC from what I can see is a bare bones racer, and performance is its whole purpose, where as the Veyron has the European grand tourer tradition it has to meet too (Im guessing if you used the SSC to tour the USA you'd end up with a sore arse and not much luggage, just like if you used the veyron on a track you'd get beaten by the SSC).

    I was intending to defend the price of the European cars; you said "you have a lot of cars that cost a lot more, but don't produce like the SSC". Since there was a waiting list for the Veyron last I heard, you can assume that there is a market for people who will pay that much for it because they feel that it offers other benefits as well as performance, such as comfort, the prestige (or snob) value of the name, reliability, and Im guessing in no small part the ability to show that you can afford to spend 1,700,000 on a car.

    My original point was that nobody is holding a gun to anyone's head to buy the European cars at that price, and that if they were such bad value for money nobody would buy them and the makers would be forced to either lower the price or go out of business.

    That post totally contradicted itself. On the one hand, yes, Robert Pattinson (or whatever his name is) is a fag, but Chuck Norris is freakin' awesome. Heck, he could pick up England, and throw it upside down into the ocean.

    It was going fine until you tried to pass off Internet Explorer and the American Office as good things...

    Neither of these have been tasteful, the other was worse i'll admit just because the architecture one was really below the belt.

    to be fair, thats biased. You deliberatley chose the crappy cars from europe. You seem to forget the two most powerful production cars in the world, the Bugatti Veyron and the Mclaren Mercedes F1, both made in Europe. Also, americans are fat. Also, internet explorer is shit. Also, england (thats in europe for you dumbasses) invented TV, so without us, you wouldnt even have Tv shows.

    To compare the F22 and the Eurofighter is stupid, designed to do totally different things.

    In regards to air craft carriers, obviously we don't have the same carriers as the US, we haven't needed them. Only recently have we had any need for them, and we've got two Nimitz-class-rivalling carriers on the way. We don't tend to build things we don't need to just to massage our egos and show off, like Americans seem to do. Over-compensating much? ;)

    What do you have that is better than
    1. The US Super Carriers?------nothing since we are the only one's in the world with them
    2. The F-22? nothing since we have the only 6th gen fighter. the closest you have would be comparing the euro fighter to a JSF(that the Joint Strike Fighter for the undereducated erotrash)
    3. What car do you have that can hold up to the SSC; the SSC holds the world speed record, 100-0 breaking record and the skid pad record. it can go faster, stop faster, and take a turn faster than any other car. if i am wrong please tell me what car can match it?
    well the challange has been given to you euro trash. now are you going to ignore it or are you going to step up to the challange? i know that the french have already given up.

    tell me, here is your time to shine, what i am ignorant to on war? tell me?
    you are ignoring alot yourself, like the carrier and f22 question.
    the bugatti is a POS. go look at the top gear track times. the car is too heavy and it can't make a turn. 4 wheel drive is for babbies, you know unskilled drivers. its great for wrc, but not top speed.
    you say;
    "Bugatti Veyron is still considered by most experts to be a better car."
    please give me the link to the page that says that. it should be easy to give me a link since in your own words "MOST EXPERTS" think this. i am giving you a change to prove yourself. now what ya going to do?

    I'm not saying America wasn't a very critical factor in the war and without them we'd probably have been in a stalemate at best but considering you weren't in it and you like to judge nations based on individuals i don't see what your point would be.

    Also i've discussed Americas actions in WW2 in great detail in many posts here and don't want to start again.

    it is a fuck lot better, in america if you live in a certain area you may have to go to a shitty school. when buying a house you have to also find what houses are in the same school district as the schools you want your kids to go to. when kids are forced to go to a certain school depending on their geographic location the schools dont care how good they do, because the kids have to go there whether its a good school or not. with a voucher system schools actually try, if they're a shit school nobody is going to go there and they have to close. when kids are allowed to choose their school they test way higher. "no child left behind" is bullshit. the american schools suck in comparrison to other major powers. Europe wins this one.

    country and state borders may change, but as far as i know continetal borders have been the same for quite a while. i think i see what you are getting at, and i hope you can understand what i am trying to say. also is western russia not part of europe? remeber this discussion is USA vs Europe. The US. vs the continent and not the countries of Europe. does that shead light on where i am comeing from? if the debate would had been the EU vs USA i feel you would be 100% correct. but as is this debate is comparing a Nation, the US, vs a continent, Europe.

    When you first mentioned SSC I couldnt help but think of this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thrust_ssc . Sorry :P

    Low blow I know, we're talking production cars. I now know SSC is Shelby Super Cars and that's the point: I had to google it (I'd heard of Shelby obviously). And I'd only seen the Saleen in a 50 Cent video and being driven by Jim Carrey in Bruce Almighty (neither of which are great endorsements). Basically a long winded way of saying 'nobody wants one!'.

    Why is speed the be all and end all anyway? Your figures show the Veyron is the fastest accelerating of both all of them (i.e it would beat them away from the lights) and you'd probably nead a reeeeeallllly long empty road for the SSC's 4mph extra to let it overtake.

    As regards the price, my only souce is Top Gear, but VW who own Bugatti are going to make a loss even if they sell every one and only produced it to see if it could be done and to make them selves look good. This means it costs less than it cost to buy and produce all the parts that go inside it. I doubt that SSC can afford to sell its cars at a loss, meaning your paying for more than you're actually getting under the bodywork.

    Lets be fair then if it's only for "shits and giggles"!

    Here ladies and gentlemen we have the remainder of the TOP TEN fastest production cars in the world.

    4. Koenigsegg CCX: 245 mph, 0-60 in 3.2 secs. 90 Degree V8 Engine 806 hp, base price is $545,568. Made in Sweden, it is aiming hard to be the fastest car in the world, but it has a long way to go to surpass the Bugatti and the Ultimate Aero.

    5. McLaren F1: 240 mph, 0-60 in 3.2 secs. BMW S70/2 60 Degree V12 Engine with 627 hp, base price is $970,000. Check out the doors, they looks like bat wings, maybe Batman need to order one and paints it black

    1997 mclaren f1 thumbnail


    6. Ferrari Enzo: 217 mph, 0-60 in 3.4 secs. F140 Aluminum V12 Engine with 660 hp, base price is $670,000. Only 399 ever produced, the price goes up every time someone crashes.

    7. Jaguar XJ220: 217 mph, 0-60 in 3.8 secs. Twin Turbo V6 Engine with 542 hp, base price was $650,000. Made in 1992, this car still got what it takes to make the list.

    8. Pagani Zonda F: 215 mph, 0-60 in 3.5 secs. Mercedes Benz M180 V12 Engine with 650 hp, base price is $667,321. With a V12 motor, this baby can do much better.

    9. Lamborghini Murcielago LP640: 211 mph, 0-60 in 3.3 secs. V12 Engine with 640 hp, base price is $430,000. Nice piece of art, the design is very round and smooth.

    10. Porsche Carrera GT: 205 mph, 0-60 in 3.9 secs. Aluminum, 68 Degree, Water Cooled V10 Engine with 612 hp, base price is $440,000. The most powerful and most expensive Porsche

    I've got to point this out:
    "how old are you? you sound like you need a hug from mom. did i hurt your feeling? i am sorry, i thought Europeans were a little tougher than that. my bad. are you french? that must be it. if you look at my profile you will see i am in mobile alabama. only about 2 hours away from new orleans. the enginering firm i work for(i am a right of way specialist) are helping rebuild the big easy. that is the parts that need it. i love what you said in a pissed of childlike way; "No i don't follow your sports, why would i?" when you grow up you will know what a stupid childish statement that is."

    You call him childish for not following your sports, but in the same comment you say that he must be french, he needs a hug from his mum, and that you thought European's were tougher than that. And earlier you said that you had to go and put your cock back in my mums face. You are the one that needs to grow up.
