He said that he had set up a webcam to record the event, and would post details later of a FTP server for people to watch. Some offered messages of hope, such as, "How bad can it be? ", "Tell me about yourself." However, other users posted messages saying they didn't believe him, wishing him luck with his attempt, and calling him an .

They also goaded him by saying, "you won't dare, you are too cowardly", and offering advice on the best way to hang himself: "I recommend ...Anyone with a basic understanding of how engines work is bound to be impressed by von Koenigsegg's latest, a camshaft-free design.With a conventional engine, the valves are driven by cams that are necessarily egg-shaped, with each cam driving its attendant valve stem into its deepest extension at the pointiest part of the egg as the cam rotates on the camshaft.
Apart from surveys and mapping the main objective was to carry out a wide ranging programme of scientific investigations with particular interest in discovering whether climatic fluctuations similar to those observed in the Arctic were also occurring in Antarctica.He also told them that he had , and was emotionally vulnerable and lacked normal social skills.He admitted to feeling lonely, and alluded to experiencing problems at school, but admitted that he had a good upbringing and had a rather good life.

So fuel is not gradually seeping in and exhaust is not gradually seeping out—it's going BAM in, BAM out. The engine is much smaller, of course, requiring no camshaft or timing belt.
