"I believe anybody who tells you he is unbiased is a liar. Being human gives you bias, and you can't avoid that. The best you can ever hope to be is fair."

Nazis, Poles, and Big Rubber Balls!

From the world of Formula One, and the ever disturbing story of Max Mosley, I find the headlines amusing for the suit he's now filed against the tabloid, News of the World. In one breath he's denying that the nazi tryst took place at all, and yet, oddly, he's suing them for invasion of privacy. Hmmm... One might wonder if it didn't happen, why he's not suing them for liable instead. And we might further wonder, if it didn't happen, how could that privacy have been invaded?

Indy Racing League
Helio is starting on the pole this weekend in Nashville. This is his seventh year in a row with at least one pole. Also of note in Nashville is that last year Scott Dixon was the first back-to-back winner of this race, and this year he's leading the points. Unfortunately if you want to see if he can make it three in a row, you'll be wearing out your remote and your thumb, because the race is on at 8pm EDT opposite the NASCAR race.

Completely unrelated to racing of any kind:
I can't NOT tell you about the best show ever on TV. Tuesday nights, 8pm (eastern), if you're not at home, you need to be setting your DVR or TiVO or just canceling whatever plans you have. The show is called Wipeout (on ABC), and if you've seen it, chances are just the mention of the title has made you giggle. If you haven't, you simply must. The premise is that challengers compete on a gigantic obstacle course and contenders are whittled away until just four remain. Those four compete for the best time for the big money prize, and honestly I don't even know what amount they win. I don't really care what amount they win. I care only about the giant red rubber balls that throw mud-covered contestants around like rag dolls! Weak-bladdered viewers may want to use caution when watching this circus, but I promise, if you like comedy, seeing grown people bouncing off giant rubber balls will definitely make you instantly addicted to this show.

The boys at Endemol loved "Wipeout" so much it's now called "Total Wipe Out" in England. Foreign versions are all made in Argentina with contestants from the proper country.
