A modern "W" engine like the Veyron is more appropriately called a "Double V", but it doesn't sound as catchy. Finally, let's not forget forget engines like Yahama's YZR500 which has two banks of two cylinders and two crankshafts, but is also considered a "W" configuration.
I think he said that because at least one of the articles I've read on the Veyron, I think more than that, desribe the engine as 2 W8's spliced together. I beleive one of the magazines was Road & Track.

ok soooo....doesn't relate to cars, but I was at work and somehow a co-worker started to talk about masterbation and hes like its normal to masterbate you have to masterbate 3 times a week to get rid of your load or else it builds up....(doesn't make sense cause after 10 days I think it dies and you replace it) anyhoo carrying on. The other guy that was with us says if you do it then it falls off. He walks out of the room and then like 2 seconds later comes back and in a voice like hes about to cry he says...."wait a second does it really fall off"? haha classic what an idiot.

With my job, I'm constantly in contact with Physician offices across the country. I was attempting to set up a time for one Physician to talk to one of our Physicians about a patient. I called the office and the phone rang about 5 times. Someone finally picked up and sat there. I said hello? Then she starts going into a spill about "Thank you for calling Sports Medicine and Orthoped.....(stops)....hello?" So I say hello again. She starts laughing and finally starts to help me. We start looking at the schedules to see when it would be convenient for them to speak. I ask her what time zone she's in. She says "umm, hahaha I don't know?". I ask her what time it is there. She says oh it's 4:53 PM. I said ok, you're in Eastern Time. She says wow, I never knew that! Come on now...how do you not know what time zone you are in?

Another story:
We have a Credit Union in our office building. One of my friends got his rebate check back for some batteries he bought during Christmas. The check was a whopping $2.25. He takes it to the teller. She pulls up his account information and looks at the check. She looks at him and says, I can't cash this. He asks why. She says because this check is made out to Bob and this account is for a Robert. He never did get the check cashed there because he couldn't make her understand it was the same name.
