El Nino and La Nina. There's your miracles. Wait a tic... Miracles aren't supposed to be repetitive.

Well, it's okay, as Nancy Pelosi said about the Earthquake in Haiti:

"I think that this can be an opportunity for a real boom economy in [California]. ... [California] can leap-frog over its past challenges, economically, politically, and demographically in terms of the rich and poor and the rest there, and have a new -- just a new, fresh start."

In for the group buy, but you need to transport the track to Texas.

I think he heard the recent report that the union retirement pensions for state of California municipal employees was going to cost over $40,000.00 per Californian and decided to fold his cards.

Would park in garage and discuss "racing pedigree" rather than drive:

******* TV! My goddamn $230 part didn't fix my problem. Been without a TV for several months now. I used the official Samsung technician repair manual and tracked down the cause to the main board using their step by step troubleshooting guide. ******* thing is still doing the same power cycle thing. I'm not sinking another penny into this, and I'm highly considering dropping Samsung all together, which has been my favorite electronics brand up till now. Millions of my model were sold, and many thousands of people have had this same issue, and they won't put out a recall on it. So I'm stuck with a $1500 lemon of a TV, that I have dropped an additional ~$325 into. Only pieces I haven't replaced are the power supply and the optics assembly. Apparently some people have replaced all parts and still gotten the same issues, because the factory parts are incompatible and cause each other to fail. Way to go Scamsung. So now I'm stuck watching only half of my available channels on my 24" Samsung monitor (with a ******* stuck pixel) with my TV tuner box. I'm not a ******* happy camper.

Maybe that was a bit premature. I'm down to isolating it to only one other part, the power supply, which was my suspect number one from the beginning. I also noticed I may have misread or misinterpreted the manual a bit (thanks Japanese to English translation), so I sort of cost myself $230. At least it has a $50 core value, so really only $180ish. The power supply will be $140 with a $50 core value, so another $90 should fix it. I also see Samsung has a new part number for the power supply, so maybe they tweaked it a bit.

I'd just hardpark it brag about setting FTD at tracks that no one would have ever been to because I drive flat out...that's how I drive, flat out. I'd be sure to roll up to the Coffee and Cockbags meets on slicks for even more ***** extending reputation.



(Seriously, If I got in that car, no one would be able to get me out of it)

Is it gay to drive around in your Miata with the top down? I'm taking all the big steps first.

I put out a WTB ad for some OEM 16" or 17" wheels on the Mazda6 forum so I could replace my gf's OEM 18" wheels. The past 3 or 4 storms we got here were enough to convince her to change over to some dedicated snow tires.

A guy sent me a PM saying he had a set of OEM 17" painted gunmetal in good condition. We went back and forth a few times and I was able to snag them for $200 shipped for the set. About half what I've seen them going for normally.

Yesterday they show up via UPS and low and behold......NO ******* BOXES!! I cant believe the guy shipped me these wheels without any boxes!! What a dick! I still have to check them out and see how banged up they are (if at all), but its more so the idea. Good deal or not, no boxes (or packing material for that matter) is a dick move.
