What a fluffy ass news day, bad puns intended. First across the RSS feed is Jessica Simpsons dogs is eaten by coyote. Ok that's sad. Its the second part thats off the wall though. She's offering a 5000 dollar reward.... I mean come on. A coyote, a buff-gray to reddish-gray carnivorous North American canid (Canis latrans) closely related to but smaller than the wolf, stole your fluffy mutt Daisy. Do you really not know what he was going to do with it? Here is a hint. Daisy is Maltipoo.
South Beach Diet....... WTF is this nonsense, and why does it seem to reappear every few months. It was bad enough 3 years ago when all the goofy little hippie restaurants opened here with the south beach menu. Now its apparently back, only this time slightly revised. Who eats this crap? Its not even that healthy if you are an even moderately active individual. The whole plan lacks a reasonable supply of sodium, carbs, potassium, and.... OH YEAH, TASTE. Its amazing. It takes things that should t
Ok so this song somehow seems to show up everywhere. After listening to it a few times I realized a few things. Maybe Orianthi is just a slack ass complainer. Maybe just maybe the first guy is right here. I mean she starts out with a sad story. In the lyrics
According to you I'm stupid, I'm useless, I can't do anything right.
She makes you feel bad for her. No one is totally useless, and everyone can do something right. Instead of stopping there though she goes one
According to you I'm
No I'm not talking about The 850 Rear Wheel Drive dream again. I've been there as we all have and we all know how that dream ends... you wake up to reality and spin the hell outta your front tires to forget. Not the Dream Car Dream; I wasn't cruising in a black 1970 Charger 440R/T or a E39 M5-both of which are out of my credit limit.
This is the point where I say I don't buy much into dreams. I don't really. I don't usually tell people about them either. But they mean something as I'm
Its gone too far. What started out as a good thing has gone horribly wrong. Nitrile gloves for surgeons.... Ok sure that makes sense. Wearing them to clean a CV joint. Ok again I can see that. To change windshield wipers?!?!?! GTFO. Now its even worse though. This months Maximum PC has people sporting the trendy purple gloves to install everything from RAM to PCI cards. WTF is wrong with us. Have a look for yourself:
So the car got hit tonight. Nothing horrible, but the entire passenger side corner of the bumper is scuffed, both grey plastic and the painted part. I also noticed later that the taillight tint is scuffed and the light is now cracked. It's all so insignificant though, that I didn't even bother to do anything about it. I just let the guy go. The one comment that's stuck in my head though is, "You look pissed man." He just hit my car, which - modifications alone - is worth more than his truck, and
Whoever started this myth needs punched in the nards. I have worked building graphite auto parts since the 90s. There has never been a real shortage. There was a price increase due to the 777 and JSF, but I never once was told when ordering that the market was out and I would have to wait or simple could not get it. All through this "shortage" bikes, race cars, planes, kayaks, and a host of other items were still built and sold daily.
So why did all these companies fold up shop who were maki
After designing 10-15 water cooled systems consisting of everything from 2 cpus up to 16 I thought I would pass along some words of wisdom.
First and foremost SCREW WORM CLAMPS. They always tend to leak in a computer application. Zipties or the plastic click clamps for whatever reason work better if you must. Of course all your blocks should be compression fittings, but there are times, at the pump, you have to settle for a clamp.
Second, use motul coolant. Its ~ 1/10 the cost of compute
Ok so its a guilty pleasure. I listen to the worst music ever while working out. While working out I take a break from my usual Aerosmith, Rush, Cheap Trick soundtracks and lean towards NIN, Scissor Sisters, DMX, Jay-Z or something else with an easy cadence. With that said, I'll admit it. I run down the road keeping beat to, "I chased a squirrel/I kissed a girl" and I like it. I make no apologies. Waking up in vegas, yeah it sounds dated but beat is 110 range and its easy to work out to. Hot an
Ok so what is the point of the national weathers service's UV Index? Washington DC's UV index for tomorrow: 10+. Destin Florida's UV index tomorrow: 10+. Well we all know the sun in Florida is stronger than the sun in DC, so the scale must only go to 10 right? WRONG. The scale is linear and has no upper limit. For example parts of Nigeria tomorrow will have a UV index of 16. Yet the national weather service has it listed at what? You guessed it. 10+. Are we so simple we cannot handle a scale th
So on the group ride today my front derailleur decides to commit hari kari and rip out one of the pop rivets. 18 miles of chattering later I am back at the shop and pull a nice shiny m771 XT derailleur out of the case. This should be a 5 minute install so I skip installing it there and go home. So 5 minute job right...........
1. Bottle cage and pump are in the way. Easy fix. Remove them and carry on. Now an 8 minute job.
2. 48 tooth chain ring is in the way. Ok, now I need a right angle 5mm
ok well dam hot out today but rather then lay around the house i have pulled both my seats perhaps i shoulda left my drivers one alone but eh
anyhow the passenger side is not as bad as the driver side upan closer look but still i need to go beef up my structur as my door closes bit stiff like the other side was doing hopefully i can also get my suspention mounting point beefed up also as the local potholes will take their toll on it if i don't
after pulling up the carpet and sound damping
I got sucked into watching "Whale Wars" on animal planet tonight. It was amazing to see such a complete stereotype. I bet there is not a single bar of soap on that entire ship. But I digress. The quote of the day.
From Cpt Paul Watson.
I want a crew with passion, I don't want a bunch of professionals running around
God forbid you have anyone on the fail boat who knows what they are doing. The highlight was the helo pilot who did not know how to use a GPS and sent them 20 miles off cour
Let keep this entry simple. Starting with the facts.
I have been an AT&T Wireless customer for over 5 years on a government plan.
I pay ATT just over 1800 dollars a years in bills on just phone, not aircards
I pay their monthly insurance fee
I have purchased 3 PDA phones from them over the last 5 years all with out new contracts. 400+ dollars per phone
My last phone is another HTC purchased less than 60 days ago
So today my phone has some issues connecting with the towers for voice
I do not want to see one more person wearing nitrile gloves to change their coolant, windshield wipers, spark plugs, or anything else that a 3yo little girl can do. Its one thing while working on a diff or MAYBE changing the oil. But put your big boy panties on and use your hands ladies. I mean at least wear gloves made out of something dead. And Serge. I don't want to see a single hand lotion, do these pants make me look fat, snus, which man purse should I buy thread from you this week.
Sears loves to push their "Profession line" off compressors. The 19541 is their top of the line portable unit. It is build by Divelbliss and actually the same as the Portercable and usually cheaper. The rub is Sears advertises it as a dual stage compressor. Not a dual piston, but a dual stage. I purchased this compressor and noted the box had the 19541 item number and said "Craftsman 2 Stage Compressor". However when I got it out of the box I saw only one crank case and no intercoolers or cross
April is National Car Care Month and I encourage everyone to take a walk around their vehicle and take a look at the common maintenance areas, many of which are quick, do-it-yourself (DIY) automotive maintenance items. 1. Tires: Check tire pressure, check treadwear, is it time for a rotation? Your correct tire pressures are listed right on the tires and on a sticker inside your driver door. 2. Bulbs: Check for any burnt-out bulbs - especially center/high brake lights (which seems to be an epid
