One of the ongoing questions about the Singapore GP from people new to F1 is how they stay awake running that late at night. Even with the drivers and teams using their European timetable, it’s a wonder anyone was left awake by the end of the race. It was a dull affair that livened up a bit at the end only to fizzle out as Nico Rosberg retook the championship lead with his third win in a row.
Tomorrow is the first of three US Presidential debates. Netflix is going to get a workout from those of us 1) not in America, and 2) wanting to remain sane rather than watching hours of lies and playground insults. Good luck, America. No matter who wins, you lose. The rest of us will lose more if a hairpiece wins.
Anyway, it’s Sunday which means that you’re here to read some links. Alternatively, you could be here to see us kick this post off with Heather Graham who you can’t tell is 46.

The fifth entry in the main Battlefield franchise and the thirteenth full game with the Battlefield name is the World War I themed Battlefield 1.

Two-man indie developer Digital Homicide has made more news and gained more notoriety from their response to criticism than from their games themselves. Despite having nearly two dozen games on Steam, they are perhaps best known for representing themselves in a lawsuit against critic Jim Sterling for $15 million in damages related to his reviews and first impressions videos of their games.
Now, Digital Homicide is taking their legal game to the next level. The developer is now in the early stages of filing lawsuits against 100 Steam users for $18 million and is considering taking legal action against Valve itself.
We’re seven weeks away from the US Presidential election but I don’t think that we’re going to make it without all going insane. The funny thing is that the whole world full of politics has gone absolutely mental. At the very least, today’s links should have you laughing at political absurdity.
Anyway, it’s Wednesday so we’re doing the links. Let’s kick things off with Kirsten Dunst.
It sure looks like Donald Trump used the Donald J. Trump Foundation to pay for legal issues pertaining to him and his companies. (Washington Post)
The Canadian House of Commons is a very loud place with generally impolite people trying to heckle fellow politicians. The Speaker of the House is doing his best to shame all of the hecklers to make them shut up. (CBC)
Who would have thought that comedians getting coffee and driving around in cars would be such a hit? Then again, any show starring Jerry Seinfeld, a bunch of high-profile friends (including President Obama) and classic cars. It’s basically Top Gear without the lunatics destroying tires, clutches and the environment.
Over the course of eight seasons and 53 episodes, there have been 56 cars featured on Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee. Just what has Seinfeld to say about the classic cars on his show? Our friends at Instamotor compiled the information for our perusal in a handy infographic.
