Prop 19

Proposition 19, also known as the Regulate, Control and Tax Cannabis Act of 2010, is a California ballot proposition which will be on the November 2, 2010 California statewide ballot. It legalizes various marijuana-related activities, allows local governments to regulate these activities, permits local governments to impose and collect marijuana-related fees and taxes, and authorizes various criminal and civil penalties. In March 2010, it qualified to be on the November statewide ballot. It requires a simple majority in order to pass, and would take effect the day after the election. Yes on 19 is the official advocacy group for the initiative, and No On Proposition 19 is the official opposition group.
Proponents of Proposition 19 argue that it would help with California's budget shortfall, cut off funding to violent drug cartels, and redirect law enforcement resources to more dangerous crimes, while opponents claim that it contains gaps and flaws that may have serious unintended consequences on public safety, workplaces, and federal funding. As of October 2010, even if the proposition is passed, the sale of marijuana will remain illegal under federal law via the Controlled Substances Act.

Nothing much..

Apple is coming out with Macbook Air.. which is ridiculous, it's TOO thin, looks like it will break if you breath too hard or even if you stare too hard at the screen! Instead of making it so thin, why not make the current size and make the quality better? I would much rather prefer an amazing resolution screen over a paper thin one.

sc2 update

Nexus life and shields increased from 750/750 to 1000/1000.

the factory requirement for nitro pack will hurt early reaper harassment, void rays weren't too much of a problem before, seems to be unnecessary change, roaches are gonna be much better now.. helions wont be able to micro against them

Hockey Rant

Hockey season under way now. Some surprises are the Toronto Maple Leafs and New York Islanders doing pretty well in the East. In the West Nashville and Dallas are performing well. Unfortunately for New Jersey they have major salary cap issues and Kovy isn't living up to his expensive contract so far, hence are struggling in the standings.

Ducks have been picking up their game after a disappointing 3 game road trip that began the season. They should have won the game at home vs the islander's but the dreaded 2 goal lead loss struck again. In detroit the biased officiating seemed to make the difference in the most recent loss, which easily could have gone either way. Overall the Ducks went 2-2-0 over this last road trip. With Sutton out with a broken finger, the ducks defense isn't at its full force quite yet, the addition of another top pairing defenseman would help. Unfortunately fowler and sexton are still scratches with their broken noses, but fowler is expected to stay on the roster this season.

More later..

Weight reduction tips

If you are planning on taking your car to the track, then increasing the power to weight ratio and bettering handling is important to increase performance. You can also strip some weight to increase fuel economy. Some of the main things are to:

remove your spare - 30 lbs
remove your AC - 45 lbs
get lightweight racing seats - 40-50 lbs
remove back seats and mountings - 55 lbs
get a lighter exhaust - 50-70 lbs
get a lightweight battery - 20 lbs
get lightweight wheels - 40-50 lbs
carbon fiber hood - 40 lbs

more can be done of course, but then you then you are sacrificing comfort for weight, and of course take out unneeded sports equipment, cd cases, luggage, etc


I've been busy with college so i haven't been posting for a while. I will be updating my blog later on today!

More on new m3 and m5

some pics of the new m5 have been leaked from a track, said to be around 50-100 kg heavier than current e60, but boasting 560-600 hp

e36 m3 - 240 hp
e46 m3 - 333 hp

e92 m3 - 414 hp

 Following this trend, i can see the new m3 being bumped up to around 450 hp/360 torque, but probably no more since they will be putting a lot of focus on shaving off weight. Going with the I6 turbo approach they hope to decrease emissions, increase fuel economy, shave weight, and increase power. They might use DCT to increase fuel economy even further. Will continue to follow this..
