Shock and "muffler" on a Grand Cherokee my dad is working on. Nice.

Kawasaki partnered with one of their construction equipment dealerships to build one of their wheel loaders and donate proceeds from its rental and subsequent sale to breast cancer research. So they painted it pink.




And they added a catchy slogan.



I told the marketing guy it should have said, "We've got a load for your rack."

I have finally decided that when it is time to buy/build a house I am going to make mine out of shipping containers. I have always liked the idea and after seeing the one in Tron I think I am sold on it.

Wait, you work with a company that build them? I know people have been making them for years and I have thought a lot have been impressive. Finally something just really clicked though and it would be a house that I would actually want to live in.

I am thinking of having 3 on the ground floor all against each other, then 2 on top on the outside. The the 3rd floor would be one across the middle with spiral staircases on each side going all the way and down. Now I just need to find someone who could design it and figure out how much it would cost.

So I'm ripping out the carpet from my car and I find the PO's license - she was a VERY attractive young woman. Blonde with green eyes. 5'4, 104lbs. I'm guessing very spoiled because there was a permit expiring the model year in the car, meaning that she probably got it new as a teenager.

It'd be like a trailer, except they can't tow your home

Just to see what would happen I listed a pair of ACDelco 9004 bulbs starting at .99. I don't care if they only sell for .99, but I was surprised that with only 2 hours left nobody has bid on them, nor added them to their watch list. So I did a search to see if they even come up or not and I couldn't believe it! Out of 3,383 results for "9004 headlight bulbs", I'm at the top of the list!!

Most of the time when I check to see where I fall in the searches I'm on the first page, sometimes I'm at the top like this one, but to be #1 out of 3,383 is pretty surprising. I guess not too many people go to eBay for bulbs. That sucks, seeing that I have about 1000 more to go through. ****.

Well is it winter now and I had the top down and no jacket while driving my miata around. You can make them very hospitable.

When I lived at the farm the main mansion had a firepole in it. It was the only way I would go downstairs. At one of the parties we had I went down it headfirst and landed on my head like a total drunk.

This **** was BADASS for sure. Everyone just had to ride it. Too bad I'm referring to the dudes though, girls were usually too scared to try it. lol

10 Boise State v. 19 Idaho

3 minutes left in the first quarter.

HOLY ****, I think everyone on the field missed the "how to catch a ball" day at training camp. There have been more drops in this quarter than there are free **** sites on the internet.
