Haven't watched Hoovie in a long time but good for the Museum. Should be great exposure for you. I've been interested to check out the Car Trek show he does with Tavarish and the guy from VINWiki. Great to see a homebrew effort pick up where "Old School" Top Gear left off.

I'm back from NC.

I've also emerged from the 2-day post-NC bender, which is nice.

Final score:
* No moving violations (how can people drive that slowly on ruler-straight highways?)
* I only dropped the F-bomb once in front of the in-laws (trying to remote into the office on their SHIT internet)
* Through no fault of my own*, the entire family is now unwelcome at the local laundromat



*it was my fault

Understeer: You will hit the wall with the front end.
Oversteer: You will hit the wall with the rear end.
Horsepower: How hard you will hit the wall.
Torque: How far you will move the wall.

Gone hunting with Alec Baldwin and Dick Cheney. Back soon.

They drive that slowly because they can. It's called a slower pace of life. Try it sometime. It's kinda nice. 8-)

Found out yesterday my local Taco Rico now sells a side called "Super Fries"!! You can only get it with carne asada but it's pretty damn good.

...while I would never fail to give "pink sock" the credit it deserves, I think the problem may be more directly attributable to a (possibly exuberant) reference to the proprietor's husky, bearded son as a "fat fluff-and-fold motherfucker."

Mrs. S. was not proud of this performance.

So today I had about a dozen errands to run so it was a good day to drive the 996. At one of my stops the drive through at the pharmacy the girl inside says "nice car!" I responded "Thank You." Girl inside: "Is it a a Porsch?" I hesitated, thinking don't be a dick, and responded "Yes it is."

She was trying and I thank you guys for helping me not be so much of a dick.
