Default The Stig is dead. Long live the Stig.

Today is a day of mixed emotions.

Years and years of mistery have vanished.
Only comparable to the legendary "Santa really exists?" question.

Not to mention:
Who is The Stig?
Who really killed JFK?
Does anyone really believed the WMD ever existed?
Who invented taxes?

After watching Fifht Gear S18 E01 I was happy to confirm that Sir Stig was NOT Damon, nor Michael, but Ben Collins.

But I was sad because one of the biggest mysteries of mankind was revealed to mere mortals.

But then again another mystery replaced the old one: no more "some say ..."? Who or what will replace the Legend?
Rubinho???
Who'll do the Laps?
Ken Block???

Too many mixed emotions....

Wait...What? Isn't this old news?
Season 18? What in the world is going on here?

I think my old age is taking my mind.

No, man, no old news. I'm not talking about the black Stig jumping into the ocean.
Episode 1 of season 18 of FIFTH Gear was aired October 8th 2010, no that old.
Go watch it around minute 7 and then you'll understand my post. Don't want to be a spoiler.

Okay, the whole 18th season thing makes sense to me now. Since this was posted in the Top Gear section, I was thinking Top Gear. You were talking about 5th Gear, and that was the disconnect. So that part makes perfect sense now.

As far as the white Stig, he was revealed as Ben a while ago.
