    Top Gear presenter Richard Hammond in critical condition.

    Link.

    I'm not sure if you get chance to watch Top Gear in America but it's pretty big over here in the UK. I hope he recovers, although it's not looking good at this stage, as he's been transferred to the special neurological unit :undecided:

    The few shows they aired over here were great.

    I hope he makes it.

    I saw a few episodes here, some of it was pretty entertaining (even for a total car heathen like me). Although every time I see that guy from Brainiac I want to punch his smarmy git face...

    Not the short angry bloke!!!

    I loved the few episodes I got to watch, until the blasted Discovery Channel ditched it. I hope this guy recovers.

    If only Dr. Bunhead could show up....
    But I don't think he is that kind of doctor. Nice 'tar.

    I just realized that your 'tar is Flanders shaking his *** in his ski suit... That's been bothering me for days now.

    Looking promising for the hamster.

    Hi Arb, haven't seen you for a while :wave:

    Yep, hopefully he will be able to carry on presenting Top Gear, he would be extremely difficult to replace.

    If I ever learn to drive & get a car, its bumper sticker will be:

    'My other car is the one that almost killed Richard Hammond.'

    Someone made that quote in one of the threads, that's where he got the idea. It's a pretty good loop, gotta hand it to him.
