Maverik is excited to team up with teamgive to raise money and awareness for the treatment and cure of rare neurological diseases by giving away a Lamborghini Murcielago!
Maverik is all about adventure, so when teamgive approached us with the idea of giving away a Lamborghini to raise money to find a cure for rare neurological diseases we jumped in with both feet.
The Lambo will be given away to one of 10 qualifiers in September 2011. Enter to qualify and you could drive home in a car that will change your life forever!
What would you do with a Lamborghini Murcielago?
Well, apparently the winner decided to give his family and friends rides in his new $380,000 car. Understandable, and I think most people would do that. I mean, just how many people win Lamborghini Mucielagos?
Unfortuantely, the last ride didn’t go so well. In the words of the owner…
“We were coming up a hill, going around a corner; and as soon as we came up the hill, we either hit some black ice or loose gravel or something, and all of a sudden we just started spinning. We ended up in a field, and I back-ended a couple of fence posts.”
Fortunately, it doesn’t sound like anyone was hurt, but the car has damage to its rear some damage to the front, a puncture in the wheel and scratches along the side. Fortunately, he was required to take out insurance before they gave him the keys, so he doesn’t have to pay for most of the repairs. I wonder what his insurance premiums are going to be when it’s repaired…
Oh, and did I mention he also won driving lessons at a road racing facility?
I happened to notice these entries in the logs while looking for something else:
It’s highly unlikely that five people would all be making a comment at one second intervals, so I can only assume that it’s some sort of spam network.
And sure enough, these IP addresses appear at regular intervals making similar attempts, all of which fail.
Remember: All spammers must die.
I’ve seen some amazing fireworks shows, particularly at Les Grands Feux du Casino du Lac-Leamy, but I’ve never seen anything like this daytime explosives and smoke show in this YouTube video:
