A 78-year-old Australian man with a need for speed had his car impounded after being caught racing at 170 km/h (105 mph) on a winding road east of Melbourne on New Year's Day. It seems John Belfield, the senior citizen under the spotlight, is a member of a local Nissan-Datsun sports car club. The club was holding a social run for its members on January 1, and Mr. Belfield was in attendance with his sporty Nissan Pulsar.

When prodded during the drive by a 36-year-old fellow club member in a Nissan Skyline, Belfield couldn't restrain himself and took chase. While it isn't clear who had the lead when the police intervened, the local constabulary did nab both drivers and promptly impounded their cars based on Victoria's "hoon laws" (a series of laws that covers certain types of speeding, burnouts, street racing, screeching brakes, etc...). The violation, according to police records, makes John Belfield the oldest person to have his car impounded under the law... an accolade, of sorts. In his defense, Mr. Belfield pointed out that he is a skilled driver who races cars. We doubt that got him off the hook, as it has never worked for us when we're in our Pulsars.

Re: Bill Gates Is Sharing His Fortune

This is to inform you that you have forwarded a well-known email hoax. Contrary to what the message claims, Bill Gates is NOT sharing his fortune with people who spam their friends with bogus messages. Also, Microsoft is NOT beta testing a program for tracking chain emails, nor will you receive $5 every time you forward this hoax.

For more information, see http://urbanlegends.about.com/library/blmsaol.htm

In most cases it only takes a few minutes of research to verify the claims in forwarded emails such as this one. Please have the consideration to do so in the future.

Thanks for your kind attention.

Maybe it's the -22 degrees or the neverending snow that's slowing you down.
