The Pits: The Real World of Formula One
The Pits: The Real World of Formula One
by Beverley Turner
Edition: Paperback

3.0 out of 5 stars A quick tyre change, 11 Jun 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An easy , quick read if you have a spare afternoon.
Although not the most imaginative layout for a book , going through the season chronologically , she does put her views across quite well. But it is a very negative view ofthe world of F1 . Yes we all dolike to moan about previous jobs we have had in the past but as you get half way through the book you feal it is a rant . Its like when a friendcomes round and starts complaining about his/her, job/boss. You make a cup of tea and listen and you agree or feal sympathetic to them but after 45min plus of this you wish they would shut up and go away .
I would of been a better book if she shows the positive side of F1 and have more of a grip of what the real world is like . i.e. She complained that when a pretty girl walked into a garage she would get staired at and wolf whistled . So this only happens in F1??? If a girl walks into a bar/pub by herself all the men are going to look and some of them enjoy it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Killing me softly, 8 Jun 2010
If I 'knew' that my wife would die during child birth and the way to save her would be by killing lots of other kids, id be worried.
I could just imagine Mrs Pub saying to me 'thankyou for saving me ; i dont mind you slaughtering allthose little kiddies; now 1 or 2 sugars with your tea?'
Would she balls!She'd be straight down the clinic to have an abortion and id be off to themen with white coats .

Lucas stay on your effing 'Skywalker Ranch'{grow up! your in your 60's now} and neverpickup a camera, write a script , cast actors , get a new computer , direct ,

How can you mess upthe story of a good guy go bad , I DONT KNOW BUT IKNOW A MAN WHO CAN

1.0 out of 5 stars anakin...noooooooooooo, 8 Jun 2010
Why oh why did they give the most important character in the saga to Hayden C . I'm sure he tried his best but this man has no 'presence' {forgive the pun} and is as wooden as a furniture store . Surely there must be a better actor in his teens around? If there was they probably read the script and ran a mile.The only interesting character is Ian McDarmaid who plays the Chancellor like Vincent Price.
Dissapointed? multiply by 10 and this is my fealing of this movie.

P.S. You can insert the same review into Revenge of the Sith.

Egg have been one of the most original bands of the past decades, pity that there has only been 2 albums in that time.Every track iscool funky laid back , perfect for those summer evenings in the garden and a beer to hand , does life get any better than this ????????????

1.0 out of 5 stars Not BOB, 21 May 2010
If you are expeting Band of Brothers set in the Pacific it is not. Having watched the first 8 episodes it comes nowhere near close . The script is terrible , it chops and changes from one character to another so much so you dont know who gets killed and therefore youdo not have empathy for them .This is what made made BOB great
The reason for this i believe that altough the setting is correct the men never actually fought side by side , its individual stories combined to make it look like they fought together and this definetly shows.
You can see where all those millions where spent, CGI , locations but i wished they had spent time on the dialogue/script/editing

5.0 out of 5 stars Still the best, 21 May 2010
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Panzer Front (PS) (Video Game)
Having played most of the popular tank sims released since this first came out I have to say that this is still the best.I still 'boot' it up once or twice a year ; it has straight forward controls , enough strategy to make you think and plan but not too much where you feal lost . And it does have the feal of realism . So what i am trying to say that it has all the ingredients needed to make a great game.
Below is a short list of Tank sims that followed and what went wrong
PANZER FRONT 2 ; The Sequal.....Oh how we waited for this.......and what a disapointment , strategy taken out and just became an arcade shooter.
T34vTiger ; PC only ; Fullof bugs eg. Antitank guns could not be destoryed , short story , 5misssions , online ? a nightmare
PANZER ELITE pc only , Preety good for the time but you have to have a pc that runs Windows 2000 toplay it does not workwith XP VISTA

This review is from: MAG (PS3) (Video Game)
Do not believe what it says on the box . It is not 128 v 128 people . Its 32v 32 with the the rest on other maps
Why cant they do large battles on consoles???? Back in 2003/4 we where playing 32v32 on Battlefield 1942 and 75 v 75 on Operation Typoon.

5.0 out of 5 stars Timeless, 6 Mar 2010
This review is from: Ah Via Musicom (MP3 Download)
I originally got this album when it was first released back in 90/91 . My guitar teacher then was trying to push me into Vai/Satriani but when i heard this album it blew them out the water. He has the best vocals out of all those hyper guitarists , lyrics are a bit soppy but with strong melodies it seems to fit . I have never stop listening to this album regulary since . Hey there is even some 'chicken pickin' for those CAW fans.
