Just don't keep it clenched inside of you for too long. Don't worry...I won't look!

Very funny, btw!

You just like it because it's shiny.

Cool cars, but styling wise I never really liked the M1. It's not BMW, it's nothing crazy that's never been done before, it's not elegant, it's not exciting. Just interesting and uncommon. Very average.

If a person runs a 9 minute mile, that burns on average 200 calories per mile. A person would need to do cardio the equivalent of running 45-50 miles at a sustained 9 minute pace to burn 9-10k calories per day.

That's why checking weight every few days, especially after a significant behavior modification, can sometimes be misleading.

*For the record, not saying that Kyle didn't lose 6lbs - it's likely that there is a fair percentage of water being lost, along with fat, and the small daily weight variable.
Meh, I think that's a bit oversimplified, especially the calories in a pound of fat. Some of the weight lost is going to be water, but that's what happens when you reduce body mass, since your fat isn't stored in a dehydrated state.

Still so strange to see those door handles.
They are a nice touch on the Model S. I like flush mechanical door handles, looks good and also good for aero. The Tesla version seems a bit too complex for my liking; I'd prefer something more simple and mechanical.
