The New Ford GT Use More Code Than a Fighter Jet

The all-new Ford GT uses more than 50 different sensors to monitor vehicle performance and behavior, external environment, and driver inputs for an optimized driving experience.

The ultra-high-performance Ford GT’s sensors provide real-time information on factors from the positions of pedals, steering wheel & deployable rear wing, to air humidity & sunshine levels, delivering the thrill of a Le Mans-winning race car.

Data is generated at a rate of 100GB per hour – equivalent to about 25,000 song downloads –and is processed by more than 25 onboard computing systems comprising 10 million lines of software code – more than a Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II fighter jet. Between them, the systems can analyze 300MB of data – comparable to downloading an hour-long TV show – every second.

1 & 2) M42 “Duster”. American SPAAG built for the US Army from 1945 until December 1960 and in service until 1988. Production of this vehicle was performed by the tank division of GMC. It used components from the M41 Walker Bulldog and was constructed of all-welded steel. Although designed for the AA role, it was highly effective against unarmored targets in Vietnam. Photos from

3 to 5) Schneider CA1. French AFV developed in France during the WWI. Although not a tank in the modern sense of the word, not being a turreted vehicle, it is generally accepted and described as the first French tank. It’s development paralleled that of the British. It was armed with a short-barreled 75mm howitzer and two 8mm MGs.

6 to 8) St. Chamond. The second French heavy tank of WWI, with 400 manufactured from April 1917 to July 1918. Born of the commercial rivalry existing with the makers of the Schneider, the Saint-Chamond was an underpowered and fundamentally inadequate design. Its principal weakness was the Holt tracks. They were much too short in relation to the vehicle’s length and heavy weight. Chamond’s had a tendency to get stuck due to its heavy nose.

9 & 10) ARL-44. French tank produced just after WWII. Only sixty of these tanks were ever manufactured and the type was quickly phased out. The ARL-44 was an unsatisfactory interim design as the “Transitional Tank”, the main function of which was to provide experience in building heavier vehicles. The main lesson learned for many engineers was that it was unwise to construct tanks that were overly heavy, something you’d think they’d have learned from the Char 2C.

Let’s talk about the Aglionby Theatre Program
  • severely underfunded despite literally every other club being severely overfunded
  • Henry Cheng as Club President
  • the club members used to just pay people (out of their own pockets) to do their tech work for them, but since Henry gained control he wants everything to be Authentic AKA they have to do their own tech AKA everything SUCKS
  • we’re talking rickety half-built unpainted sets and lighting that consists of Cheng2 sitting in the pit with a few flashlights and some colored cellophane. Instead of microphones they just. Yell.
  • the thing is, they have the equipment for fancy tech leftover from years past, but no one knows how to use it without killing themselves
  • the acting can range anywhere from Average to Fucking Terrible
  • the singing for musicals is almost always horrendous.  Earplugs are provided at the concessions stand for $2.  Proceeds go to local music programs
  • the choreography is.  A Sight.
  • because they’re an all boys school, they have to either A) genderbend the female parts to male parts, B) crossdress, or C) (Henry’s favorite) make all the characters trans.  All of them.
  • Henry has led many a protest about the administration being ButtHeads for banning their trans plays
  • their publicity efforts are always The Best and a highly anticipated event for the Henrietta locals
  • a few years ago a club member made a commercial on Windows Movie Maker and had it broadcast across the local news stations.  It had slideshow effects and grainy pictures/audio recorded from his iphone.  It went viral on youtube
  • Henry always hand makes posters and plasters them across the entirety of Henrietta.  I should mention that Henry is terrible at drawing, and the posters usually look like the work of a six-year-old.  But the handwriting is always lovely
  • someone once hired a skywriter to advertise
  • at least once a year, someone designs a billboard for the highway.  It almost always involves clip art. It is almost always too pixellated to read.
  • junior year the billboard had one of Henry’s drawings on it.  It’s now his phone background
  • before Henry’s time, someone made fancy posters and had a helicopter drop thousands upon thousands of copies onto Henrietta.  The cleanup effort was monumental.  Copies are still occasionally found in bushes and birds’ nests
  • the position of director is passed around the faculty like a hot potato
  • In theory it’s a chill job watching a group of pampered kids try to do actual work and mostly fail at it.  In reality, the director is the one who has to deal with the boys’ constant bullshit and talk them down from the vast majority of their ideas
  • the director is given an extensive list from Headmaster Child of Things That Are Never Allowed.  Using the saws is listed at least four times
  • the boys always want to use the saws
  • other items on The List include: the use of live animals in a performance, fire, fireworks, working vehicles on stage, actual liquor as a prop, actual liquor as a prop near fire, swords, cannons, and glitter
  • most of these items were added to The List after Whelk’s spectacular failure as director sophomore year.  Henry walked all over that poor man
  • their plays are always free admission and they tend to attract an odd mix of semi-proud Aglionby Parents and eager Henrietta locals who just want to see the latest clusterfuck happen live
  • concessions range from super fancy hors d'oeuvres to, like, pringles
  • no one knows how to price anything so everything is $2
  • Henry always hires a professional filming crew for their closing performance and puts the video on his youtube channel. He always gives a tearful speech after the final bows.  Cheng2 always throws flowers at him from the pit at the end.  Other Aglionby boys made it a tradition so Henry literally gets showered in flowers while he sobs onstage.
  • he also liveblogs the entire play/musical process on Twitter, from auditions to striking the set. Almost everyone in Henrietta with internet access follows him

I just realized I answered these in the wrong order but


I wish games with crew grinding at least bothered to factor in ergonomics. Take an elite crew and put it in a vehicle actually designed with human beings in mind, and that vehicle should perform better than one that’s fighting them every step of the way. Like an American 76mm-armed Sherman compared to a British Firefly, for example.
