So the wife heads off to work this morning and I get a phone call about 45 minutes later... never a good sign. "What's wrong?" "I'm broken down." Shit. So with a call to AAA we had the TT towed down to the Fort Myers Audi dealer to give it a look see. She reports it would start and physically move, but once she tried to creep past 20mph or so, the ESP light would come on and forcibly brake the car. So, I dunno. Let's hope just a wheel speed sensor? Maybe a Mass Airflow Sensor? Only time will tell....
Darts were historically used in warfare in ancient history; skirmishers used darts of varying sizes, similar to miniature javelins. It was the practice of this skill that developed into a game of skill. Before the First World War, pubs in the United Kingdom had dartboards made from solid blocks of wood, usually elm. They had to be soaked overnight to heal the holes made by the darts, and it was a messy business for the publican, although darts was a popular game. Quality dartboards are made of sisal fibres; less expensive boards are sometimes made of cork or coiled paper. A regulation board is 17 3/4 inches in diameter and is divided into 20 radial sections. Each section is separated with metal wire or a thin band of sheet metal. The best dartboards have the thinnest wire, so that the darts have less chance of hitting a wire and bouncing out.
Photographers Mert & Marcus somehow got the crazy idea that people like looking at pictures of naked celebrities. And so they came up with “Pillow Tweets,” a series of black and white photographs showing various celebrities as they might look in bed. Those celebrities include Miley Cyrus, Pharrell Williams, Miranda Kerr, and many more. One of the ideas behind Pillow Tweets would appear to be that the celebrities would then re-post the pictures on their Instagram and other social media accounts, leading to very wide exposure and an illustration of social media, plus, more publicity for the magazine.
Holy shit! Can you believe this Medical-Surgical Nursing textbook -- in soft cover, mind you -- costs $91! Holy shit, that' an expensive book!
Besides it being illegal in most states, you shouldn't fuel a car with the engine running, for several reasons. First, todays cars use a pressurized fuel system, if the ignition is on while the cap is off it will throw a check engine code due to loss of pressure. Second, gasoline in liquid volume is not nearly as flammable as many people think; you can toss a list match into a bucket of gas and the match will just go out. However, gas evaporates very quickly and is very volatile in gaseous form; you run a greater risk of explosion from holding a cigarrette near a bucket of gas than you do throwing it into the gas. Thus if your gas cap is open, there's a much greater risk of explosion from any errant spark contacting the gas vapors.
It wasn't too long ago that if I wanted some dark chocolate fudge brownies, I'd have just bought a box of pre-made mix and gone to town. Now here I am following this recipe to make some from scratch. I hate to think I'm getting old but what a difference 10 years makes, eh?
It's been 50 years since the first issue of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue was released, and they're celebrating the best way possible: a cover sporting three lovely ladies in bikinis -- well, partial bikinis. So whose three asses made the cut? Only one way to find out.
The hot blonde that you posted posted Saturday climbing the broadcast tower to base jump is dead, and her new hubby faces charges. Pat
Hi Ernie! That brass-balled tower jump you posted made by Clayton Hoyt Butler and his (now former) wife Amber Bellows didn't go as well this week as it did in the video you posted … “It wasn't the fall … it was the sudden stop.” Scott

The Ariel Atom is a road legal high performance sports car made by the Ariel Motor Company based in Crewkerne, Somerset, England and under licence in North America by TMI Autotech, Inc. at Virginia International Raceway in Alton, Virginia. The Ariel Atom is unusual in that it is exoskeletal — the chassis is prominently visible from the outside — and therefore lacks a roof, windows and other features normally found on road cars although a small windscreen is available as an optional extra. The chassis design leads to a relatively high drag coefficient of 0.40 in comparison to more aerodynamic road cars. The fastest Ariel Atom in the world has 650 horsepower; meaning a Bugatti Veyronwould need almost 2000 HP to keep up maintain the same power/weight ratio.
I've lost out on a few gunbroker auctions when they concluded when I wasn't home and some dickwad outbid me at the last second, so I'm glad they finally released their own Gunbroker app. And look at what Papa Bear got delivered this weekend. That's right, some 54R for the stockpile!
