Why Paddles Suck.

VBH of Fifth Gear track tests the difference between an 2007 Audi TT Manual Transmission and the Direct Shift Gearbox. The DSG adds 44 lbs (20 kg) of weight and loses the man pedal all for an additional $1400. Let's see if the DSG is worth it.

So for everyone arguing that DSG, S-Tronic, SMG, Tiptronic, or whatever your apology for a proper manual transmission, is better than a clutch pedal and a fun stick watch the video again and weep.

Xmas Tree Subway Train Layout 2009

Here is the finalized version of the 2009 xmas tree layout using an MTH Premier R40 Subway set, Lionel Fastrack, MTH Graduated Trestle System, and MTH Realtrax Trestle Set.

Here you can see how close the train is to the upper deck when it has to go under.

Here is the upper deck view of the spiral.

And here is the lower deck vantage point.

This was the 1st version, but due to the incline of the spiral it's better to have the train go down on the steep grade.

Hayden Panettiere Tattoo Misspelled?

Hayden Panettiere's tattoo is fully visible in these pictures from Cannes. What we can see is an Italian phrase, "Vivere senza rimipianti". This translates to, "to live without regrets." Unfortunately "regrets" in Italian is "rimpianti."

So it looks like Hayden has at least one regret...

Make sure you put sunscreen on that tattoo
