Guts, cojones, bollocks, che palle, chutzpah, sisu, etc. Every culture/language has it’s own word for when somebody does something that shows a certain sense of disregard for common sense. I don’t judge those folks for not exercising the same caution as the rest of us chickens, because sometimes the end result is land a man on the moon, or discovering the Peep.

The mighty W140 Mercedes-Benz S-class was the last of the over-engineered Benzes with a reported development cost of $1 billion. The W140 introduced the world to features like double pane window glazing (regularly and erroneously reported as bulletproof) and motorized closing doors/boot latch. When new the S600 could cost in excess of $140k but today […]
The Mercedes-Benz W140 series S-Class was the result of a decade of German engineering development, with cost overruns that allegedly leading to departure of Wolfgang Peter, Dailmer’s chief engineer.
