    Saaa… You’re right. (I was silly to expect that the Japanese could to think out of the box that far.) The DeltaWing is only really “Powered by Nissan”—It’s a British-American designed racer.

    Japanese invention? Unless it involves tentacles, schoolgirls, or porn, I’m skeptical of any “inventions” from Japan……


    ….Korea on the other hand, they claim to have invented everything and
    often remind me of that Iraqi d00d on the news that was announcing
    “great victories against the infidels” as his city was pounded by bombs
