Meanwhile, in Italy...

it took several years to get (at least apparently) rid of Berlusconi, which although being a quite able businessman, is basically an entrepreneur participating in politics only in order to defend his interests, and now:

  • the left-wing PD (Partito Democratico, Democratic Party), with its allies, failed to take care of the necessities of the traditional social classes voting that side, and so had a huge drop (like in other EU countries, e.g. Netherlands);
  • the anti-estabilishment M5S (Movimento Cinque Stelle, Five Star Movement) is beginning to realize that you cannot do politics by just screaming slogans and talking of utopian ideals like basic income for everyone, so it's going to negotiate with other parties;
  • the anti-immigration Lega (League) is still considered untrustworthy in the south of the country, because of its past as Lega Nord (Northern League) fighting for less obligation for the richer north to sustain the welfare of the poorer south;
  • no one has a majority, not even in a single house: the M5S is the first party, but Lega with Berlusconi (and far-right Meloni) as a coalition outnumber them, although having less than half of both deputies and senators.

The risk is a compromise solution which would require to take aboard in some form Berlusconi again. Which, it has to be said, is more moderate on some topics than other parties, but if everything changes in order that nothing has changed, we would be trapped in a loop...

This is just a test to see if I finally can write on the forum and not just the pinboard "news"


This is a test to you see that can be quoted.

He, he... hope you guys like this track. I wasn't so convinced at the beginning, but after a few touches, I started to feel it could work. :)

Short Cutfinder was a good joke in the Golden Era of Stunts racing and a long-lasting mystery. I've never thought that it was BJ.

It is hard to call it a ghost. IMO a ghost is a.) interfering the results of other pipsqueaks - not true, since SC's time was never threatened our times OR b.) invoked by competition managers to increase the number of pipsqueaks in his competition - not true, BJ wasn't the competition manager and he had other goals with it.

A track with that many zeros in its name certainly sounds tempting.

What's the best way to run Stunts in Windows 10?

One week left!

Fast and tricky are the way I like to make them. I've already discarded a couple of attempts I was making. I'll have one ready soon :)
This one is good, though. It appeared simpler to me when I first looked at the map, but racing it is fun.
