So, get this. Mom's house, preparing for a garage door opener installation, which was a Christmas gift. I have my 10 year old son helping me, and I知 installing an outlet in the garage where the old porcelain overhead light was. We have the switch turned off, and my son is holding the flashlight so I can see.

But, I知 having problems getting the metal cover onto the outlet, so I take it off so I can work on a surface, instead of overhead. Get the cover on, and go back in the garage to install it. So far, so good.
Then my idiot brother decides to stick his nose in.
As we go back into the garage, I tell my son to turn on the light.

Unbeknownst to me, id10T turned on the switch to the outlet AS I WAS WORKING ON IT! Because, you know, when two people are working on something, and one says to turn on the light, you turn on the outlet where a light was before. Even though you were not part of the group working on anything. Even though the light is gone.

Naturally, it shocked me. Naturally, it arced and burned my finger. Naturally, I swore.

I swear, my brother is a retard.

Default Tesla vs Hellcat

Wonder what would've happened if the Hellcat driver could actually drive...?

1.19 for the race.

Could he have had a worse launch if he tried? I think he would have had to be in reverse to be any worse.

You must have a helluva miata if selling it would allow you the budget to get one of those.

Well it would be just a fraction of the cost for sure. I need to pick up more Miata's to part out first.

I like several of their offerings. I have no illusions that I would ever finish one.

Want a good prank? Call a few parts places, and get them to describe to you what the water pump gasket looks like for a 99 tundra with a 4.7L V8...

I don't even answer.
I get about 3 a day. Usually at the months end, i'll have about 100 unread voicemails.
