Must read: "ObamaCare and the Silence of the Liberals" on Volokh.
I bought a steering wheel at a pawnshop but it didn't have an ac adaptor. I got one off Amazon and it arrived yesterday. This is the life, I tell you. Currently I'm not very good but I did get out of rookie level with a gamepad so there's that.
Eventually I aim to get up to their indycar series and grand prix legends. That will take a while. All time which I could've spent studying for next semester or for the exam this summer. Since the only classes I have left are generals I'm not so worried about them.
Usually I read the textbook well ahead of time and already have some idea of what we're talking about. I think it's better to relax and take these classes as they come.
This semester: minnesota history, a basic chemistry class whose text - chemistry in context - is more about real-world stuff than about what chemicals go together in what order, and the economics of the environment. Should be easy compared to what I've been doing.
So just yesterday, after a few months of playing Grand Prix Legends obsessively, I finally gave in and joined iRacing. Holy crap. See you in a million years, guys.
I spent like an hour or so practicing before I joined a race. I made it about fifteen minutes before spinning out of about fifth place and finished ninth out of 13. The game feels just like driving an actual car on an actual track, and since it's online racing only, the opponents are really unpredictable and believable. They're actually other people so I guess I'd say I'm actually competing. I felt so much pressure going into the first turn that first time. So yeah, that's awesome.
