Gathered here, images from this weekend’s protests against the ban, from New York, Atlanta, Chicago, Los Angeles, Houston, Seattle, Washington, DC, Dallas, Boston, Detroit, Philadelphia, and more.

Jeremy Clarkson confirms to be pinning the LaFerrari against the Porsche 918 and McLaren P1

Jeremy Clarkson confirms to be pinning the LaFerrari against the Porsche 918 and McLaren P1

Some exciting news from Jeremy “Jezza” Clarkson as he just tweeted one exciting bit of news on his Twitter feed regarding his new show with co-hosts Richard Hammond and James May. With the arrival of their new show on Amazon, the trio will finally be able to conduct one of the most coveted tests as of recent: the LaFerrari vs. the Porsche 918 Spyder vs. the McLaren P1.

When the LaFerrari, Porsche 918 Spyder, and McLaren P1 were all hot and fresh off the press (they’re still hot), Top Gear UK attempted to try and get all three at the Top Gear Test Track in order to do a world-famous track test of each car against each other. Being the absolute pinnacles of road-going hypercars, this was a test everyone was waiting to see.

However, Ferrari refused to give up an example of the LaFerrari to test in an effort of political policing, as in, they were too afraid to lay it all on the table for competition, despite the reputation they established, leading up to the LaFerrari’s existence.

Top Gear’s production team was in the midst of finding some privately owned examples of the cars to be used for the competition, but during the process, Clarkson decided to get angry and punched a producer, leading to his termination and the end of the project. So the whole thing on Top Gear’s front was sacked

But thanks to Clarkson and gang’s new team and playing field, it seems this they’ll finally be able to see who reigns superior, once and for all.

How Does Lexus’ NX 300h Hybrid Fare Against BMW’s X3 xDrive 28d Diesel?

in Car Nerd by


North American buyers see diesel autos the way they do hybrids – an strange and contrived way to conserve gasoline which has positive aspects and drawbacks. Nevertheless, modern day diesels are so very good, that hybrids seem absurd in being as complex (and heavy) as they are.

Creed Frontman Scott Stapp Makes Threats Against President Obama

Creed Frontman Scott Stapp Makes Threats Against President Obama

At one time Creed was one of the biggest bands in the world.  They pumped out hit after hit and you could barely turn on the radio without hearing one of their songs.  But things have got quite dark for Scott Stapp in recent months.You may remember a few months back when reports began to surface the ex-frontman Scott Stapp was broke and living in a Holiday Inn or on the streets.  As sad as that sounds things have become even more scary for the former rock star.

Scott Stapp

Reports have started circulating from TMZ based on an audio recording they received.  The tape is of a 911 call placed by Stapp’s wife and her sister.  In the tape she attempts to tell the local police about her husband and how she needs the help of the police.  The 911 operator begins by asking questions like ‘why are you calling the police’.  Stapp’s estranged wife lets the officer know that her husband has serious mental issue and she feels he is a danger to himself and potentially others.  She details his illness and rehab stints and notifies the operator that he is now off the drugs but self medicating.

In the latest bizarre incident she describes how Scott Stapp believes he is in the CIA and is on a mission to kill president Obama.  She goes on to advise that he is riding around on his bike, shirtless, carrying two backpacks which he says contain CIA documents.  She also told the police that aside from the ‘CIA Documents’ he also has several tools like a wrench and a screwdriver with him.

You can listen to the call here.
