It was hilarious. Those rednecks just say it all. I am now scared to drive my girly Lotus Elise through the south of America with England flags on my car.

Same with my web filtering system.

So how do you like Barracuda for Internet Filterting?

We used Barracuda for e-mail filtering, but no one likes it, so we're phasing it out this year.

Well I loathe it with a passion because it blocks half the sites I try to go to but I guess my problem is really with "the man" as I do about 90% of my web-surfing here at work. It does it's job but we just started the email filtering piece and I really don't like it. The recap or "what we've caught" email is more annoying than the spam itself!

Bahahahahaha! True. After having lived in the South, sadly I'm not surprised, but then again the Top Gear lads asked for it

I do get your point, but I would be surprised to get people throwing stones by writing on a car that you didn't like a particular sport or type of music. Writing "Maggie was awesome" however would get you in trouble!

Cheap Pacific Rim Cars

Does anybody know where I can find a clip of the "Pacific Rim" test from Top Gear? It used to be on Google but they took it down. The Hyundai Accident...
