  1. Has anyone seen @Dog and teddy in the same room?
  2. Ooh - I followed a series of YouTube videos about someone dropping an LS in an old Nova - same thing. Looked good.
  3. Ever since these came out, I've always wanted one: With a 2JZ-GTE and a 6 speed...
  4. Love the car, for a collection this, for a driver, I would go with a Factory Five.
  5. That is exactly what happened. But I did bark my head on it once before I cut those suckers off. I wonder if the PO replaced it just before I bought it, or if he had it like that for a while.
  6. I would like to thank the PO for using bolts 2" too long to mount some turning blocks on the deck, which coincidentally happened to be just above the entrance to the head.
  7. Yes, "The Birds". I'm not sure if it was the pecked out eyes, or my mom walking in and screaming. You see, she had orithnophobia and my mom wasn't one to ever show fear, but that blood curdling scream when I was about 6 haunts me. And of course the goddamn flying monkeys from Oz. Mind you, they were kinda birds with teeth.
  8. This was my favorite scene from Jedi.
  9. That has to be one of the best illustrations of hiking the coastal mountains I have seen. On some mountains there are only a few viewpoints where you can see anything beyond the third picture, and the terrain is not a constant slope. When climbing one of these mountains, you are really scaling a series of ridges, meaning to get to the top, you don't just climb, you go up and down constantly, which when combined with only a few hundred feet of visibility, can make it very disorienting, as without a compass/map or GPS, you can't tell which way you are going.
  10. That is a very interesting graph. I get he was a pretty obscure figure - Christians don't like to bring him up as he proposed the Big Bang, and Atheists don't like to bring him up because he was Catholic, I would have guessed that the answers would be more partisan than they are.
  11. Ouch. I feel your pain, Tom. I sometimes make half-hull models out of wood I scrounge and donate them to charity fundraisers. They aren't too hard to make, and if the materials are scrounged, I get a few days entertainment, the charity gets something to auction off and it keeps crap from going to the landfill. I recently had some electrical work done around the house, including some work in the crawlspace. I came home from work, and thought I would crawl down there and see how things went. I had recently scrounged two solid maple table leafs, which when glued together, would
  12. I can't think of anything more Russian looking than an camo tracksuit with an AK47. Maybe if his ammo pouches were filled with Vodka bottles.
  13. This is the style now: As seen at Vancouver International Airport.
  14. I think he is doing better because it is a minority government. He's on his best behavior.
  15. Don't forget the movies: Kids and I sang "Deep in the Heart of Texas" with too many claps for months after watching this.
  16. Haha - I forgot all about this one! Thanks Jon!
  17. Does that bottom plastic piece come off, Dreade? Seems to me if it does, you could sandwich the plastic between two pieces of metal/wood. What about a stainless chunk of angle, coming down the edge of the door and across the bottom? That should be strong, and if it were brushed stainless, it would blend right in.
  18. I'd read that. Let me know when you've had it published.
  19. Usually the blower motor is tucked under the glove box in Toyotas. If you hook the fan directly to the battery, does it still surge? That's where I would start. It is free and easy.
  20. Ha - that sounds like my Home Depot. Can't get help there no matter what. I will have to try the rolling steps trick. Usually I bring my wife with me. If I need help, I stand about 15 feet away from her. Since women drive the home reno craze, a woman standing alone for 10 seconds attracts the help in droves. As soon as the unsuspecting staff strolls up to ask my wife if she needs assistance, I march up and ask my question.
  21. When I was a teenager, working in a gas station, the boss, whom I still consider a good friend, and I spent an entire year clipping Wlison's work out of Playboy. His Dad was rich, so it was hard to shop for him. We made a giant scrapbook out of the best cartoons to send him for Christmas. Unfortunately, in November, my friends wife found a scrapbook of sick, twisted, horribly grotesque cartoons, and through it out.
  22. I think you have your answer buried right here in your post. You state "I don't think it is any secret most people vote in their own self interest", but also apologize to your daughter and others of her generation for mistakes your generation made. So wouldn't that make part of your voting criteria self interest, and part an interest in what happens to others? And isn't that about all you can hope for in someone's decision making process? I know my Dad things heavily about his kids and Grandkids at the polls, and I don't think he is alone.
