    What's really surprising is just how many people are there watching that rubbish. With Germany's performance in the WC, maybe they're smarter than I suspect.

    This is an old video though, so it has nothing to do with recent German performance.
    I, however, am surprised it is a real thing. At first I though it was something hockey players did for fun, but apparently this is a real sport.

    Holy baloney, Timo Bernhard really pushed the edge of what's possible! :err: That lap record will serve as a benchmark for years to come.

    It's already in Wikipedia:

    "On 29th of June 2018 Porsche ran the 919 Evo on the Nurburgring and Timo Bernhard put down a time of 5:19:546, breaking the long held record of 6:11.13 set by Stephan Bellof in the Porsche 956.[17]"

    Intel, what's the problem? You took down the video honoring your founder Gordon Moore, and it was a great interview, nicely edited. It's disappeared from the Intel site too, but the heading is still there "Here is an edited version of the interview:":

    Gordon Moore Interview: Intel Founder on Its Early Days

    Intel Newsroom
    Published on Jul 2, 2018
    In advance of Intel's 50th anniversary, Gordon Moore offers an interview about the company's early days and the personalities that built the foundation of its success. Moore, a founder of Intel with Robert Noyce, speaks of the pair's departure from Fairchild Semiconductor; the naming of Intel; the choice of Silicon Valley -- Santa Clara, California, in particular -- as the company's home; the early days with Noyce and Andy Grove; his role as Intel's CEO, starting in 1979; and the formation of Intel's corporate values.

    Scientists You Must Know: Gordon Moore
    Science History Institute
    Published on Jan 7, 2015
    In this episode of Scientists You Must Know, the Chemical Heritage Foundation interviews Gordon Moore. In 1968 Gordon Moore co-founded the Intel Corporation. Moore began as Intel’s executive vice president and rose to become its CEO and chairman of the board. Initially, Intel focused on creating semiconductor-based memory for computers. When this competency was taken over by Japanese competitors, Intel switched its emphasis to microprocessors, which are the chips that are the brains of today’s computers carrying out complex functions.
    Through the efforts of Moore and others, Intel is today the world’s largest chip maker. In 1987 Moore stepped down from being its CEO, and in 1997 he became chairman of the board emeritus, a position from which he retired in 2001. Over the years he has become an elder statesman for the semiconductor industry, founding organizations and making representations to government. In the late 1990s and 2000s Moore, in consort with his wife, Betty, increasingly turned his attention to philanthropic pursuits, especially supporting scientific education and research and conservation of the environment.
    He is widely known for "Moore's Law" (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moore's_law), the observation that, over the history of computing hardware, the number of transistors on integrated circuits doubles approximately every two years.
