Back in April, Bugatti rolled out its special-edition Veyron Vitesse WRC at the Shanghai Auto Show to mark the roadster setting a speed of 254 mph that made it the fastest open-top production car on the planet. The car’s got the same 1,200-horsepower 8.0-liter quad-turbo W16 as the “standard” Vitesse, but wears a special black and orange color scheme.

Not that all owners plan to race their new Vettes, but it’s definitely good to know just what the car is capable of doing. For its latest vid, Motor Trend’s in-house professional driver Justin Bell gets behind the wheel of the 2014 Corvette Stingray at the Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca for his official opinion(s). He delves into areas such as the car’s aerodynamics, gearbox and overall handling. Driving in the raceway’s famous Corkscrew section, Bell is clearly impressed. Very impressed.

Gun owning TPM Reader SS sent in a note yesterday which meant a lot to me …
Not sure what kind of feedback you are getting on your constant drumbeat of articles about accidental child gun deaths, but, as a gun owner in gun country, I have gradually come to appreciate it.
In the gun world, there is a lot of reinforcement of the idea that gun critics are mostly irrational “hopolophobes,” and there is a lot of discounting of individual gun accidents with recourse to their statistical unlikelihood and/or what is usually a fairly obvious and egregious violation of either one of the “four rules” or the safety protocols we all like to believe we would never, ever forget to follow. (And there is something to the statistical argument: gun critics like to bemoan how many guns there are in this country, but you don’t often hear “per gun” rates of either homicide or accidental deaths–maybe to be fairest these would have to be “per gun-owner.”)
But all of this is to say that, given the horrible possibilities of even the tiniest slip up, it is good to be confronted, in the non sequiturish fashion in which you do it, with all the latest permutations of the old story of “kid finds gun.” For me personally, it is particularly effective that these just pop up in the flow of seemingly unrelated news on a site that I’m going to for a very different purpose than reading about gun deaths. That might be why it’s so effective for me, but I might occupy a rather small zone in the Venn diagram of your readers.

In an attempt to make sure that no-one else is allowed to have money ever again, Blizzard announced free to play online CCG Hearthstone back in March . Using characters and lore from the rather popular World of WarCraft, the plan was for a late summer beta with a same-year release, the first part of which has now come to fruition. Momentarily available only in North America, you can sign up for a shot at a key over on Battle.net while you wait for those bits and bytes to be shipped over the ocean. Some thoughts on what we’ve already seen of the game once you’ve become a hero.

Were you perhaps, wondering this out loud? Maybe screaming it to the heavens? WELL CONGRATULATIONS, CITIZEN, your prayers have been answered by the gamejam god. The descriptively named 7 Day FPS came to an end last week, and has produced a heaving, sweating pile for you to pick through. All 161 finished titles can be accessed on the official website along with ideas and concepts for a further 117 that didn’t make it all the way.

But oh so happy after the incredible past ten days I’ve spent with Marta and our group gathered at El Esparragal in Andalusia. As a few students exclaimed when our small bus pulled in front of the main house, the photos on their website are far from doing justice to the beauty and warmth of the place! We are lucky! What an incredible experience we’ve had! I need a few days to gather my thoughts and rest my body, but I promise to be back with pictures and words about it all. I sense you will love it.

Bonne fête à toutes les mamans !
Mother’s Day, la fête des mères, is only celebrated on May 26th in France, but one time is never enough to show the appreciation and love I have for my mother, and for all of the things she taught me.
Including bringing me into the kitchen to cook with her.
I wish her, my mother-in-law, all my mother friends, and all of you who are lucky mums, a very happy special day! Tonight, P. is cooking Japanese for me and Lulu.
We are both happy and hungry for a bowl of beef donburi !
Comfort food at its best!
