    Going to Dubai then the Maldives

    Car stuff you'll see plenty of cars in the valet parking section/parking garage at the two main malls - Dubai Mall, and Mall of the Emirates. Dubai Mall is at the base of the Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world. They have a water fountain show in the evening synced to music at the base of the building. The top of the building is pretty nice to see esp if you can see the sunset (buy tickets in advance to speed through the lines a bit). If you've never been up high of the Freedom Tower or Willis Tower, it would definitely be worth it, otherwise it's just another very high look out point - our depth perception is pretty poor at distinguishing extra height in tall buildings or skydiving which can be a good or bad thing, haha.... Dubai Mall has a nice aquarium inside, while Mall of the Emirates has the indoor ski slope, as far as exploring the novelty aspects of Dubai. While both malls have good shopping, Mall of the Emirates has every single high end boutique brand known to man, and all in close proximity to each other. The Lamborghini dealership is a sight to see from the train/E11 highway, it will be on your right as you go south, not far from the Mall of the Emirates. It's what a dream dealership would look like, so tall and airy looking. As far as where to stay, Dubai Marina/Jumeirah Beach is pretty sweet. It's a little further south of the action but IMO nicer than the other parts you could stay at. I stayed at Sofitel in Jumeirah Beach a few weeks ago and really liked it. Saw a few Lambos passing the hotel each night, and the vibe/temperature is just right in the evening. Car stuff - there's the Dubai Autodrome not too far from Jumeirah. It's a race track where you can do some fun track stuff and even some drifting if you like: https://www.dubaiautodrome.com/experiences/?gclid=EAIaIQobChMI-ZD99Nuq3wIVArYYCh22gQDREAAYASAAEgKlmfD_BwE I did a few days of drift training about an hour north of the airport, an excellent school if you have the time/desire (same company that does the drift experiences at the Autodrome): http://prodriftacademy.me/ There are hotels nearby the drift school on Marjan Island which would be nice and convenient if you wanted to spend more than a day doing that. With regards to Ferrari World, that's in Abu Dhabi which is about 2 hours south of Dubai. I didn't go to Ferrari World but a friend did recently and liked it. It's very close to Yas Marina F1 race track which has track stuff you can do as well. Lastly, as far as SIMs go, there is Du and Etisalat....I've had better luck using Du for my phone/data needs. Dubai is a bit plasticky like Vegas, but it's cool in its own right and everyone should see it at least once!

    Thoughts on Aventador vs Aventador S

    I figured the modernization had a lot to do with it. I remember it as a kid vividly but it never took off. Also, RWS seems more suitable for AWD cars than RWD since it's a bit unnatural for sustained powersliding/drifting.

    Cheating on Lambo today

    It won't feel as fast as it actually is.

    Ferrari engineers tuned the turbos to limit boost in every gear but 7th to simulate a naturally aspirated power plant.

    Fire flow for firefighting hose lines or sprinklers?

    The all concrete Fortis style homes is a good look moving forward.
  8. I'm 50/50 on DeMuro. Seems like a nice guy who just likes cars, but his reviews seem more Consumer Reports than getting into the essence of the car's personality. His driving impressions when he's actually behind the wheel, 15-18 minutes into the video usually aren't bad. If I ever bought a car that he has reviewed, I would definitely watch his video to make sure I know about all of its "quirks and features". He has a gift for finding every single little thing about a car that many owners do not know of. And I disagree with his Doug Score model of scoring the entire automotive world on a universal scale. I get what he's trying to do, but no...

    Movie review: Bohemian Rhapsody

    Finally got to see it.....solid. Great to close the end credits with "The Show Must Go On", fitting song.

    Stan Lee Won't Be Saving The Day...

    Classless. Hopefully enough liberal Stan Lee fans are aware of Maher's comments, to shun him.

    You should be able to get around the local water supply requirements by installing your own water storage tank(s) if you're so dedicated. Completely isolated system.
