  1. Here's another article about the car with some pretty good pictures. It also mentions that "Bolide" is French for a "a very fast car": I like the solid wheels for less wind resistance. Kind of like the idea of the original Moon hubcaps (Full moons as oppose to Baby Moons) like those that were used at Bonneville sicnce way back when. https://www.autoblog.com/2020/10/28/bugatti-bolide-racing-track-car/
  2. Thanks for all your hard work, eric. This is a great website and it's easy to attach pictures and videos
  3. I hope this doesn't cause problems for us old guys who spent most of their lives in the last century who don't have a clue as to what DNS caching means, or what it does.🥴
  4. If Biden is elected, will this sort of thing stop? No. All that would happen would be that the news media would stop reporting it because the news media is just as corrupt and dishonest as the Democrat party that controls it.
  5. Sometimes you get "W's" instead of E's.
  6. Strange that they're almost all one color. The original M&M's colors were brown, red, orange, yellow, green, and violet. And then in 1949, tan replaced violet, and then in 1995, blue ended up replacing tan. And recently M&M's became available in packages of all one color. Years ago, the rock band Van Halen put in their contracts that there had to be M&M's available backstage wherever they preformed, but that there could be no Brown M&M's. The reason they did this was not because they didn't like brown M&M's but to see how closely the show promoters were paying attention to the contract.
  7. "We don't need no stinking BADGERS!"
  8. I believe the full quote is, "If you're looking for another set of wheels, I will stand upon my head to make a deal. I will stand upon my head till my ears are turning red, Go see Cal, Go see Cal, Go se Cal"
  9. I'm a throwback from the last century and I really don't like most modern technology. I don't like automatic door locks or locking and unlocking the car with a "Beeper" key or dashboards with digital readouts and all the controls on the steering column and "hidden" controls that you need an instruction manual to figure out and all the idiot lights and things that go beep. I don't even like power windows. And the idea that a car needs several on board computers to make it function just seems like more stuff that can fail. But some technology is good. And when driving in snow and ice, anti-lock brakes are very, very good. I also prefer electronic fuel injection to carburetion and electronic ignition is a huge improvement over breaker points. And remote start is a good use of a beeper key in cold country so you can leave your car locked but start it an let it warm up on a cold morning as long as you can still unlock your door manually in case the beeper key stops working.
  10. My 2011 Jeep Patriot was an SUV, not a truck, but it had full time front wheel drive with the rear wheels engaging for 4WD. Front wheel drive is good in the snow an sometimes I didn't need to put it in 4 wheel drive. I suppose Jeep could have built a truck on the same platform but it was a fairly short wheelbase vehicle and everybody these days likes 4 door pickups. I think as far as having the choice of front wheel or rear wheel you can do it one way or the other. but it would probably be a lot more complicated as far as the drivetrain goes to be able to do it both ways.
  11. Every morning, the CEO of a large bank in Manhattan walks to the corner where a shoe shine stand is located. He sits on the couch, examines the Wall Street Journal, and the shoe shine man shines his shoes to perfection. One morning the shoeshine man asks the Executive Director: “What do you think about the situation in the stock market?” The Director asks in turn arrogantly: “Why are you so interested in that - that topic? "I have a million dollars in your bank," the shoeshine man says, "and I'm considering investing some of the money in the capital market."“What is your name?” –Asks the Director. - John Smith” says the man. The Director arrives at the bank and asks the Manager of the Customer Department: ”Do we have a client named John Smith?” “Certainly” –answers the Customer Service Manager–“he is a highly esteemed customer. He has a million dollars in his account.” The Director comes out, approaches the shoeshine man, and says: “Mr. Smith, I'd like to ask you this coming Monday to be the guest of honor at our board meeting and tell us the story of your life. I am sure we will have something to learn from you.” At the board meeting, the Executive Director introduces him to the board members: “We all know Mr. Smith, who makes our shoes shine. But Mr. Smith is also our esteemed customer with a million dollars in his account. I invited him to tell us the story of his life. I am sure we can learn from him.” Mr. Smith began his story: “I came to this country with my sister fifty years ago as young immigrants from Europe with an unpronounceable name. Ee both got off the ship without a penny. The first thing I did was change my name to Smith. I was hungry and exhausted. I started wandering around looking for a job but to no avail. Suddenly I found a quarter on the sidewalk. I bought an apple. I had two options: eat the apple and quench my hunger or start a business. I managed to sell the apple for a dollar and bought more apples with the money. I also sold them and continued in business. I saved and saved almost all the money. I didn't spend a cent on entertainment or clothing, I just bought bread and some cheese to survive. I started accumulating dollars and eventually, I was able to buy a set of used brushes and shoe polish and started polishing shoes. I continued to save penny by penny and after a while, I was able to buy a set of new shoe brushes and polish in different shades and expanded my clientele. I lived like a monk and still saved penny by penny. After a while I was able to buy an armchair so that my clients could sit comfortably while I was cleaning and polishing their shoes, and that brought me more clients. I did not spend a penny on the joys of life. I kept saving every cent. A few years ago, when the previous shoe shine man on the corner decided to retire, I had managed to save enough money to buy his shoeshine location at this great place. Finally, three months ago, my sister, who was a whore in Chicago, passed away and left me a million dollars.
  12. I sent an email to the president of Henry arms, Anthony Imperato, years ago urging him to make a lever action in 41 magnum. He was nice enough to email me back and tell me he had many requests and was thinking of doing it. A couple of years later he emailed me again and said the rifles were now available in 41 magnum. Unfortunately my financial situation had changed in the meantime and I couldn't really afford one. I like the Henry rifles. nice workmanship, accurate, and some people don't like the tube loading because it's not as fast for cowboy action shooting, an dit';s not "Traditional" (even though the first lever actions had tube loading and the side gate came later) but the tube loading makes it faster to unload in the field without cycling the ammo through the action.
  13.
