If I would start digging a tunnel from the place we live in Shanghai, cross the core of the Earth and continue digging... I would end up surprisingly close to Alan Rotoi! See the attachment.

Chat - Misc / I'm on TV

Now with Lise being famous, let's see how many of us were on TV!

As for me, I was three times on TV, though only twice talking.
 
- First when I was 7 and my classmate was featured in the famous "Három Kívánság" (Three wishes) show. He had a stupid wish though.
- Second I was 12 and I was interviewed (yay!) as a member of the first Hungarian field hockey team. Not even my own parents could understand what I was saying because I got my teeth braces installed a week before.
- Third I was 22 and my father was playing in the "Do you want't to be a millionaire" show. I was the relative who accompanied him to the show and had an awkward greeting :)

Plus a number of unplanned appearances as background, member of crowd, etc.
So overall nothing I can be proud of :)

Maybe a bit too hard for a January track but since we don't really have newbies anymore, I don't think it is an issue :)

Competition and Website / Scheduled replays
« on: August 16, 2012, 07:50:53 AM »
Seeing Renato and Friker battling yesterday for the LTB gave me an idea:

Quiet days are with us since almost a decade now (wow...). It is a great solution to a big problem, however, less and less significant now that the activity is a bit lower.

What if we would reverse the idea, and allow pipsqueaks to send scheduled replays? Of course not backwards, but forward in time.  Let's say if someone is battling for the LTB and is afraid that after he goes to sleep someone will overtake. He could schedule a replay for 2am or 3am next morning, which then only shows on the scoreboard from that time.

Scheduled replays could not be rescheduled or revoked. Such a system would allow everyone to do some strategic thinking and possibly increase the number of sent replays and the battle for LTB.

what do you think?

Competition and Website / guest track
« on: July 04, 2012, 02:36:39 PM »
132 ZakStunts tracks so far on the main path, 117 designed by me.
With no other active competitions available, I would like to have more guest tracks.

How about having every second track delivered by a guest designer?

You can apply for:
ZCT133 (August)
ZCT135 (October)
ZCT137 (December)

I would need the track at least one week before the end of month.
Applications welcome :)

Stunts Chat / Classic racing
« on: February 21, 2012, 02:52:11 PM »
What else would you expect from my son - yes, he loves Stunts!
Of course he is too small yet to to race alone, but he loves to play with me together and watch how the cars go.
RH-heavy competition racing is not too interesting to look at. So lately I have returned to our roots, and am racing quite a lot from F3 view against an opponent (usually Skid) with a slightly faster car and strictly noRH, with Baranabas sitting on my lap.

It is so much fun!!! Barnabas has his favourite cars which he often requests (Grey lamborghini and red jeep) and loves to see how we overtake and battle against the opponents, and frankly, I am having a lot more fun racing than on the competition tracks in the recent months.

Last time we played more than an hour on a long train ride from Beijing to Shanghai. We had a great time - check out this very close battle for example which I have attached.

I encourage all of you to rest the competition racing a bit and race just for fun as in the old days, to rediscover what a great game Stunts is.

Chat - Misc / wiki spam
« on: February 02, 2012, 01:48:16 PM »
Wiki spam is usually annoying.
But today I found this page on the stunts wiki. It's kind of interesting :)
http://wiki.stunts.hu/index.php/User:NafeteHebiru (quoted contents below to make sure the page is stored)

I have learnt the following from this useful spam:

- Economists are not useful anymore. I need to retrain myself to be an automobile gearbox specialist!
- If you are not an expert at restoration (that is, you can restore anything!) you have no chance with women.
- The skill of Prevodovky is the key for earning a lot of money (or at least the ideal amount of money)


Quote
There's a big difference involving several types of gear boxes. Many people study at classes for decades to grasp this. On the other hand, in cases where you don't use products as well as automobiles, you probably does not have to own this information.
The fact is that too many people focus today upon economics as well as law of their training. Although these kind of people do not see the predicament around the work marketplace. Economists aren't needed any longer, we all have got heard of these immediately.

Rather than studying precisely what prevodovky to utilise, students waste their particular occasion researching matters they are able to never ever used in practice. It's a unhappy reality regarding our own academic technique.
[edit] Seniors don't seem to be aware of this specific point which is the reason why we quite often research topics which are not pertinent.

Just simply very few people know something pertaining to vehicle in addition to machines. Normally, these people get more suitable when compared with the many financial experts.

Then again, consider some of the alternatives? You could for instance begin a store to provide such things as just what gear to make use of within your appliance. You will find there's massive need for that, specifically in B2b segment. This does mean high profits and recurring payments, what on earth is in no way awful. You possess likewise several other opportunities. You'll be able to start an automobile repair shop and also assist the others with their particular automobiles. An individual might as well come across career in a very manufacturer or even change into freelancers. You can find a large consideration in individuals through car sectors, whom understand picking a accurate gear box.

Forever keep in mind which you live once. You can not learn 5 times in the College or university. The actual 1st selection is the most important one. Using the automotive know-how, you'll be able to become a consultant and be given a considerable hourly price for your ideal advice. You actually can also teach the others as well as make it possible to increase your care about the particular inequality around the work marketplace.

It is also an exceedingly skills. Countless men nowadays may not accomplish basic property capabilities, like shifting a new bulb. It may well tone goofy for you, yet it is genuine. Chicks don't want men that could definitely not restoration everything. There're seeking folks who could care for the house of simply of any circumstances could happen.

Fiscal feature is usually necessary. Learning things such as prevodovky, you'll be able to actually complete a ideal money. Anytime you understand the best way to complete math, not a soul will pay you because of this expertise.
Your practical implement will be minimal. Although when you already know to fix practical stuff everyone utilizes upon every day base, you don't need to concern yourself with this monthly payment to suit your needs. You should, maintain it at heart and prepare a proper determination.

Funny how different languages express how to receive salary for work:

English are earning money (earn money)
Germans are deserving money (Geld verdienen)
French are winning money (gagner de l'argent)
Hungarians are searching for money (pénzt keresni)

what are your expressions? :)
