Time lords: The clocks that rule our world

ZWR: Mark Sanchez blows. Hardingererer: Foles was bad when he played and Sanchez has been pretty bad as well but at least Foles was aggressively bad, you know. Like, he threw it more than 10 yards down the field once in a while and everything. Related: My friend tried to tell me Mark Sanchez was the Eagles’ QB of the future after the Thanksgiving game and he was ADAMANT about it. Jesus. The Evster: There were a couple plays where Mark Sanchez tried to evade the rush and just like, fell down. Like, he planted his foot in the ground, looked like he might do some sort of sweet jackknife spin move, and then just fell. There is nothing more embarrassing that having a quarterback who just falls. Starting with Mark Sanchez and the quarterbacks, the good news here is that if you’re reading this now, you’re alive. It might not be a good life at the moment, but you’re breathing and have a pulse probably. That’s pretty much it. Grade: F. Running Backs. ZWR: We had a Sunday Funday with our neighbors on Sunday morning. Running game was tough to establish after falling behind 21-0 after seven plays. Hardingererer: Noted Chris Polk.

It’s the P85 which has been superseded by the P85D (D... The 85kWh battery on-board meant a potential driving range of 502km, while the electric motor sitting between the rear wheels produces an impressive 310kW which equates to a lightning bolt off the line – more on that later. You’ve got the key in your pocket – wait, is that the key. There’s not even a clear button on the key – no unlock symbol, no lock symbol, no boot symbol. Instead, neatly recessed under the skin of the key are three buttons. Double click the “front” of the car (key) and the bonnet will pop open. Double click the back and the rear hatch of the Model S will slowly open up fully. There’s no real need to touch the roof of the car (key) which unlocks the car, because as you walk up to the car it will unlock itself. But seriously, with the chrome door handles recessed into the doors the real magic begins when you approach the car and the handles “present” for you, gliding out from the doors ready for you to grab them and pull the door open. Before we sit inside Let’s wander around the Model S. Having popped the bonnet, you’ll walk to the front and lift it open. Space up front and around the back is. When you head around the back you realise the amazing capacity of this vehicle.
