    Beautiful Cars & Trucks

    Porsche 550 Spyder. Probably a replica since only something like 90 were ever built and James Dean owned one of them and crashed it. Absolutely beautiful color, though most of the originals were Silver.

    Flying cars. Maybe not a good idea.

    According to SkyRunner, which has FAA certification for the vehicles, the incident happened in the United Arab Emirates on February 9th at 10:15am GST. SkyRunner sometimes operates these vehicles themselves for various promotions but it also sells the vehicles to third parties. This was a case of the latter, according to the company. “A company which owns a SkyRunner was performing a routine flight on Friday when it came in contact with a building,” SkyRunner CEO Stewart Hamel told Gizmodo today by email. “Both Pilot and passenger are stable, neither sustained life-threatening-injuries. We understand the incident is currently under investigation in the UAE and we will report further when we know more,” said Hamel.

    Good Ass Beer

    Read the fine print on the can. It says LIGHT beer. Light beer is just pretend beer.
  6. Here's a more detailed account of what happened than most I've read: A runner in Colorado was reportedly attacked by a mountain lion — so he choked it to death. I ain’t kidding. The attack occurred as the man, who has not been publicly identified, was running on West Ridge Trail in Horsetooth Mountain Park. He heard something behind him, and when he turned he was faced with one big cat. He knew the recommended routine to avoid attack, so he yelled and waved his arms above his head. It didn’t work; the deadly cat pounced on him. As they say, ‘a struggle ensued.’ When it pounced anyway, he blocked the cat with his forearms. The animal bit his face and then his wrist and wouldn’t let go… So he picked up a rock with his free hand and pounded its head. Still the cat persisted. Then he put it in a headlock and wrestled it, finally jumping on its back and — using his hands, arms and feet — choked the beast to death, [CPW spokeswoman Rebecca] Ferrell said. ‘It’s an amazing story. Everyone is baffled and impressed,’ she said. ‘He had no weapons, no knives or trekking poles with him.’ The 30-something-year-old man reportedly drove himself to a hospital where he was treated for cuts, scratches, and puncture wounds to his face, arms, legs, and back, as well as a wrist injury. The cat’s carcass was recovered from the site and reportedly tested negative for rabies. Historically speaking, attacks on humans by big cats may be on the rise in Colorado. Over the past 100 years, only 20 people in North America have died from a cougar attack, the CPW said. But in Colorado, the cats have killed three people and injured 16 since 1990. ~~~~~~ The last previous mountain lion attack on a person in Colorado was reported in June 2016 in Pitkin County. https://www.alloutdoor.com/2019/02/07/guy-strangled-mountain-lion-attacked/

    When Did Old Sneak Up On Me?

    Hope the eye surgery goes well. And after you recover from that. you can look forward to the colonoscopy. I was surprised to find that as far as the actual procedure itself. there's nothing to it because with the drugs they give you, you don't feel a thing and have no idea what's going on back there. But the prep is what really sucks. 24 hour fasting and you have to drink literally an entire gallon of something that will give you the drizzling ****s and will clean you out and it takes a few hours until your watery stool clears up and there's nothing left to expel.

    Beautiful Cars & Trucks

    I never really liked the 32 Ford "HighBoy" roadsters but I liked them better than the coupes. Mostly I like the fat fender cars. But one day I was looking at a 32 ford HighBoy at a car show and I realized that these things had a really good power-to weight ratio and I started likeing them. but I've always like them better when they had some kind of engine that was more interesting than the standard small block Chevy. I like to se something less common like a nailhead Buick or a 472 Cadillac or even a 427 Ford Hi-riser which is extra cool because it's a Ford engine in a Ford car. More common, but much more to my liking than a Chevy engine would be a Chrysler hemi. I also like the Flathead Ford and Mercury engines but they didn't put out very much horsepower by modern standards. An exception would be a Flathead Ford or mercury supercharged, with Ardun overhead valve conversion heads. The Ardun heads were developed in the late 40's by Zora Arkus-Duntov who was the man behind th Chevy Corvette. Eric posted a picture of a HighBoy roadster with a supercharged flathead with Ardun heads that I will re-post here by way of illustration. But the one thing I think would be totally amazing to do with one of these Highboy roadsters would be to put an Offenhouser 4 cylinder Indy Car engine in one. These engines were 251 cubic inches with dual overhead cams and 4 valves per cylinder and the head was the same casting as the block with the lower end separate. This meant the engine could never blow a head gasket no matter how high the compression. They used Hillborn fuel injectors and put out about 450 horsepower with 15:1 compression. I've seen a lot of hotrods over the years but I have never seen on with an Offenhauser engine so it would be totally unique in all the world.

    Looking for a .45 ACP CCW

    +1 for Glock 30s. but a G27 is thinner and lighter and the 40 is not far behind the 45 ballistically. A single stack is more comfortable for IWB carry and the S&W shield is a nice gun in 40 or 45.

    Weed and memory...

    The reason they caller him Tupac was because his mental capacity was 4 beers short of a six pack.

    i am so done with winter!

    Here in Easter WA/ Northern Idaho. December and January hardly any snow. Then on Feb 5th temps got down to 5 degrees at night and it started snowing.. Got about 10 inches the day before yesterday on top of another 6-8 inches and 4 inches last night. I've had to walk up a hill to the road for the past few days and shovel in front of the mailbox. I'm getting too old for that ****.

    Atlas is shrugging...

    Oh well, it looks like the billions they've already pissed away will get you 160 miles from Merced to Bakersfield so then all you have to do is take a greyhound bus from SF to Merced and another one from Bakersfield to L.A. I'm surprised Newsom actually has the sense to stop throwing good money after bad. I guess giving welfare and social services to all those illegals is costing the state big bucks. Desperate times call for desperate measures.
