Great Jackie Robinson Day Post

Are You An Experienced Philatelist?

Are You An Experienced Philatelist?

Billy Joel & Jimmy Fallon “Lion”

I looked for the same pitch my whole career, a breaking ball. All of the time. I never worried about the fastball. They couldn’t throw it past me, none of them.

Will a Prius ever have carbon ceramic breaks?
We live in a world where stopping are car, is equally as important as making it go fast (maybe even exceeding the need to accelerate).  Overtime, as all automotive owners know, the conventional iron break disc eventually corrodes, due to water, salt, and just overall usage.  But with the carbon ceramic break technology used in sports cars, and lunatic hyper cars of modern day, why can’t something as mundane as an eco-friendly family hatchback, sport a pair of huge calipers, hugging a carbon saucer.  I’m not sure it would fit onto an extremely miniature- car sized 16 inch alloy.  But today, when my frugal father’s 1994 Toyota Camry’s breaks lost most of their feel and use, I had the question pop into my head.  Breaking is something that we do so frequently during driving, especially if your over the age of 65.  And living in an old town, raped by hills, and good old “slippery slopes”, we use them quite a lot.  Over the years there is so much maintenance and where-and-tear, that financially it might just even out.  I’ll explain.  If I spend $8,000 on ceramic breaks on my 911, the servicing is much less frequent, I most likely won’t have to get them repaired or replaced, and I have better stopping power, and shorter stopping distance at my disposal.  So for the concerned drivers and their safety? Check.  Also having huge red calipers on your car, pretty looks cool, might I say.  So, could car manufactures dipping their toes into the world of advanced breaking?  Maybe in a decade or so your Honda CRV, or your Prius, might be breaking to make a turn, only 15 feet before…
