Venezuela is a country who has slowly kicked out private firms and their production has steadily fallen as they don't actually know how to run an oil field.

Now that Joe is in Chicago and there might be some impromptuish work on his car event at my house... I'll make sure to stock up on the tin foil in case you swing by and need a spare hat

Oh and btw, Joe when/if we do the timing belt at my place as a few others seem to want to crash the party... there is also an indoor carting place about 10 minutes away from me (K1 Speed in Addison)... so yeah.

I'll warn you in advance that I've gone karting at those indoor places precisely twice (once was at the K1 in Carlsbad, CA), and I have determined that I *really* suck at it.



And since this is the politics pictures thread, here is Luigi, from Mario Kart, as the Pope, expressing his views on extra-marital sexual relations:

Actually, I just found a better one.

Lectrosonics is a company that manufactures wireless audio systems. I just went to their web page to find a datasheet, and saw this:




Rio Rancho, NM (April 1, 2016) - A new battery technology and firmware development from Lectrosonics will allow all their current model transmitters (SM Series, LT, LMb, SSM, WM, HMa and HHa) and some previous models to be powered completely by political discourse during debates, campaign speeches, by news pundits and any other political speech-related verbal blather.

Using newly developed algorithms, speech patterns are analyzed by the on-board DSP (Digital Signal Processor) and compared to a database using the party neutral Content Comparator™. When any speech patterns are recognized as politically related, the Rhetoric Rectifier™ then coverts the target speech into Argument Amperage™, which then charges the Blather Battery™*, an ultra-efficient, patent pending battery cell technology that must also be installed for the process to work. The more heated the debate, the more power generated and stored. In addition, the Content Comparator also evaluates the speech patterns using another related algorithm, the Fact Frequency Finder™, which develops more power the fewer facts per minute are present in the verbiage.

"We feel we are really onto something this time" states Karl Winkler, Vice President of Sales at Lectrosonics. "Just about everyone is annoyed by the majority of political speeches, campaigning and the like. Most people wonder if there's a way to develop something positive out of it. We think we have found that way via this new hardware and software development. And, it's just in time for the real meat of the 2016 election process!"

The new firmware and battery technology will already be installed on any new transmitter shipped from the factory, and can be installed on any previous model transmitter from the Digital Hybrid Wireless® Series for a small service charge. For each minute of a standard political speech or campaign debate, a typical transmitter will be charged enough to run for an additional minute and a half, making practical transmitter run time nearly infinite in these circumstances. Any discussion of "Hot-button" issues further increases run time as well.

*Caution: Blather Batteries must be stored properly in sound-proof containers when transported in any campaign aircraft or bus due to potential over-charge situations and possible fire hazard.




I love it when OEMs have a sense of humor.

Extremely noticeable chromatic aberration, particularly in the red/white background transitions, despite no obvious barrel distortion. I'm extremely curious to know what lens was being used there.

That would require me to even remember how to wire those suckers up

And yes... emissions = :(. Thankfully my two tinker on cars are pre-obd and the new fun car will keep passing and does not need more power.

I consider myself to be a moderate libertarian (eg: stay out of my wallet, and I'll stay our of your bedroom.)

This is basically what I hear whenever someone who claims to share a belief system with me takes anti-statism to extremist lengths (eg: taxation is theft.)
