A gallery of the 2014 F1 noses...

...or a post with many phallic shaped aero-dynamic noses.

I've done them in the order of how nice they look - mainly because I think it'd be unfair to post up the most awful one first and frighten the millions of children that are reading...


Red Bull
The nicest looking of the noses. More platypus pic than dick pic. A nice tapered front with a slight drop down but overall a good looking nose cone.


Mercedes
A nice smooth drop down from the front of the car in to the nose section and no front bit. But a little bit of an opening makes it look way too much like a good ol' Jap's Eye.


Ferrari
The transition from body to nose is nice and smooth, wide and quite nice. It's just the end result which makes this an ugly looker and worse than the above two. It looks almost like some sad character from Creature Comforts!


McLaren
The first of the noses that are being described as 'anteater' like. Which I think is just a way of saying they look like nobs without making it NSFW. This one with it's little opening is quite stylish in some ways and then God awful in most others. I'm wondering whether if it gets fastest lap or wins the race it 'ejects' some liquid out the hole... No, too far?


Sauber
Sleek, smooth and very dick shaped. Simples!


Williams
Very similar to the McLaren's nose above with it's little 'slit' although this one is not as prominent due to the colour scheme of the car and that it has a little grille material on the front.


Force India
This one is almost saying "Oh, hi there! Nice to meet you!"


Marussia
Couldn't find many pictures of this rare beauty. It's definitely got some girth and I'm always told me it's the girth that moves the earth rather than the length so I'd guess that Marussia's nose is very pleasing!


Torro Rosso
They've changed engine supplier and also brought in this little beauty of a nose. A drooping willy.


Caterham
The poster child for all that is ugly about the 2014 cars. This car was berated on Twitter due to what can only be described as U-G-L-Y You Ugly, No Alibi! But now all cars have been revealed I don't think it's the worst. No, not at all... because...


Lotus
Oh... my... God! A two pronged affair. And not only two pronged, one is longer than the other. Almost in a "how could we make it worse than it already is?" move.

Wonder how they'll evolve over the year?

Anyways, to a great 2014!

It's time for the 2014 season...



So, it's time for the 2014 season of Formula One and as has been the case in the past couple of years it's split over BBC and Sky Sports F1 for how I watch online.

It appears that Navi-X which is usually my choice for streaming TV channels is not working and is down - again. Therefore I'm having to dodge the millions of banner ads of trying streams through these many 'Sport Channels for FREE' websites with their multiple pop ups, poor quality and the ever present chance that it might infect your PC like a close encounter with a lady of the night!

Anyway, to the new season and the new noise from the engines. Does it make me a traitor to say that I actually quite like the electric sound of the new drive train?

Quite possibly.

Hopefully this is going to be one hell of an exciting year even if the calls look like they've got a penis on the front of the car.

Auto awesome bed rolling...

It appears that Auto Awesome by Google will turn your photos in AA GIFs but sharing them to anything but G+ is a bit of a hassle.
Does sharing them to Blogger (another G property) via Android yield any better results?

Evelyn bed rolling!

Edit: it appears yes it does work 

A first post, about nothing.

Hi All,

So, I've succumbed to the Google overlords and created a Blogger blog. Is that the correct term? Or just I've created a Blogspot, maybe? Anyway, that aside the point of this blog is that there is no point. It's merely a place where I can put up anything that is over the 160 character Twitter spiel or something that maybe is too long for a G+ post.

So I'm guessing there will be very little here. However, you are free to read it whatever that may be or come to in time.

The good thing about Blogger over the previous self hosted Wordpress solutions I've used? I really don't have to worry about the PHP or MySQL or any of that. Plus it comes with a nice little Android app and I'm already a part of Google's Skynet eco-system.

Maybe I'll just do the usual 'tech-Dad' thing and post pictures of kids. Because I've clearly not got enough ways to do that!

Anyways - that is all!
