What is your Favorite Film?

With the Oscars coming up I thought I would start a discussion as to what you think is deserving of the Best Picture Award.  I also want to hear your vote for Best film of all time.  I will leave the thread open until day of Oscars and will calculate which films are the winners.  If you are not sure of the nominees here they are in no particular order.

  1. Babel
  2. The Departed Letters
  3. From Iwo Jima
  4. Little Miss Sunshine
  5. The Queen

Post your reply in two parts…

  • Best Picture (This Year)
  • Best Picture (of all time) 

WIN 10 Million Dollars For A Fuel Efficient Car!

That’s right.  Any body that comes up with a vehicle that can accomplish 100mpg and complete a few tests can win MILLIONS of Dollars. The foundation X-PRIZE is offering the reward as an incentive for innovators to compete and create.  Talk about a substantial carrot. 

I would love to see an affordable and fuel efficient vehicle that doesn’t look like a bubble.  We need a better choice.  The hybrids we have now are OK but they are not what the average American drives.  Besides that current Big Boy Companies such as Toyota claim their Prius Hybrid gets 50 to 60 MPG.  That has not been the case in real world applications they achieve maybe 40 MPG.  Not much more than my brothers standard 2000 corrola/prism.  My own 97 Camry gets 27 city and up to 35 highway.  Toyota has a Hybrid Camry as well which looks great, but only gets estimated 40mpg with real world being significantly lower.  With these hybrids costing nearly 25-30k who is going to switch when their car is paid off and drives great only to get another 10 miles to the gallon?  Don’t get me wrong they are stepping in the right direction but the savings just don’t add up.
