My first Bugatti Chiron was on display at the 2017 Canadian International AutoShow

The first Buaggti that I caught live in Toronto was the Bugatti Veyron. It was parked in Yorkville. That Veyron and whole bevy of super exotic cars were in Toronto, as part of the Gumball 3000 Rally.

The Bugatti Chiron is rather rare. I managed to catch this one at the 2017 Canadian International Autoshow in Toronto.

The Acura Precision Concept was featured at the 2017 International Autoshow

_dsc9009-noise-red-edited-wm-web

The Acura Precision Concept which was on display at the 2017 International Autoshow in Toronto, is literally “Eye Candy”. I was not the only one who felt that way about this car. Other people were calling their friends over and telling them how they much they would love to “own” this car. One of the nicest machines at the show. She is a real beauty.

With an emphasis on high-contrast details and the intersection of modern, sheer surfaces and muscular, organic sculpting, the Acura Precision Concept communicates Acura’s focus on performance and prestige through its ultra-low and wide stance, long dash-to-axle ratio, deeply sculpted surfaces and the debut of a new Diamond Pentagon grille. The Acura Precision Concept’s crouched and athletic stance is further emphasized by its deeply sculpted side surfaces pouring over swelling rear wheel arches covering 22-inch wheels and tires. The forward-looking concept also features signature lighting designs – in front with its Jewel Constellation LED headlights composed of organically arranged fractal elements, and in back with floating LED tail lights.

A different viewpoint:
I appreciate that the Guggenheim Museum is a private entity. What I am about to say is not a reflection on the Museum. My comment is about society as a whole.

I have traded millions of dollars of stock shares and have lived off the Capital Gains. I have also been broke. Stuff happens but I would never give up due to a downturn in finances. I have been able to pick my self up and and get back on my feet financially. Thankfully I have never had to call the street my home.

Unfortunately some folks sadly do end up on the street.

Within a few blocks of the Guggenheim Museum I am sure that one could find “Homeless” people. You know, the unfortunates who do not have a pot to piss in (much less a Golden Toilet). The Homeless do not register in people’s mind. On the other hand, people will give away their money (pay an entrance fee) to see a Gold Toilet.

Would I pay to see a Golden Toilet?

No, I would rather give the money to a Homeless person, who could then afford to go to a restaurant to buy a coffee and use their Restroom and retain some of their dignity.

It’s a very strange world where you have people flocking and making a big deal over a Golden Toilet, while others have to sleep and live on the street. The Golden Toilet and the Homeless could be viewed within walking distance of each other. Rather sad…

European Court ruling may have a major impact on the Internet in Europe

Bloomberg has posted a news item regarding a European Court Ruling in reference to a Dutch copyright infringement case. This is only the first shot, as stricter European Union  rules on the Internet are expected shortly.

In brief, the ruling speaks about hyperlinks potentially being illegal, especially if the site posting the hyperlinks to copyrighted material is a for profit entity.
