There's a Civic DX around my neighborhood that has a rear wing that's mounted backwards. I've been trying to get a picture of it but no luck so far.

You mean the one made by the guys who do the g-string Miata top?

Speaking of which, what the **** is the point of that thing? So it can be a bitch to put up and take down, and still not protect you or your car from the elements?

We are getting *** raped by weather here right now. Worst weather I have ever seen here, and apparently the worst some of the 30 year weather veterans have seen here. Not typical to catch a tornado like this on live TV, going through a large city. Pretty spectacular ****. I watched it live as it formed and dropped down. Ended up staying on the ground and continued through north Birmingham and further, lots of EF4 and EF5 damage. Fortunately it went a few miles north of me, but another is on its way, which might go a little south of me. Pretty wild weather. Got hit hard earlier this morning too, several big tornadoes.

As it went through north Birmingham. Probably 3/4-1 mile wide at the base. Unheard of for around here.

I know I am preaching to the choir here Joe, so this isn't really directed at you...

He should have many more expenses than just that paypal fee. I forget if Scott is the landlord or Matt the landlord, but for instance he could do a home office deduction easily if he is renting. Then stupid stuff like his miataturbo.net subscription and gas mileage. Solder. Advertising. Car magazine subscriptions. Hell, he could transfer his car from a personal asset to a business asset since he uses it all the time for R&D to sell his product. That would be winning because he can write off **** like rimz and body kits. Dyno time would also be deductible. Then he can buy me a burrito and expense that **** too as entertainment.

Not to be a dick, but at least most of the north Birmingham damage was in the ghettos and slum neighbrohoods. Lot of old, run down shotgun houses and lots of crime and drugs in that area. Still some terrible damage. Those aren't even that bad, I was some on the news earlier that I can't find there were just overwhelming. If it had gone a mile south it would have been far far worse.

Don't feel bad, at first I thought it was done with a MAC 10 or AK.

To be super cereal, that's some terrible damage. Looks like those houses got directly hit by a tornado.


In other news, I finally got around to getting scaffolding for my ride. Makes it tornado proof I hear.

Yeah, I was actually coming on here to see if you were alright. They were saying on the news that a 3 story hotel in north Georgia was flattened at about 8:45pm local time there. Lots of people died in this series of tornadoes.

I'm on track to fail at life right now, and I have no motivation to fix it.

Just had to say it out loud.

I just got access to a entire house full boxes and **** to go through. The women that lived there is like 95 years old and nobody has been in the house in 10 years.

So far I'm only 4 boxes into the front door and I've come across $200 in $1 uncirculated bills, about 500 books, tons of stamps, trail guides and maps like you wouldn't believe, etc etc. The house is filled from top to bottom and the women's boyfriend was a traveler/hoarder/packrat/senile old man.

I'm not sure if its a score yet, but I'll give it a few weeks before I walk away from it. Right now there's more **** that needs to be thrown out than anything, but you never know. I almost tossed out a box and found 3 coins from the mint at the last second. Too bad they aren't any good ones, but still worth about $40 each.

Then I came across this thing. Anyone know what the hell it is?

That's pretty cool. Almost looks like a "cooler" of sorts to dissipate heat... what it is for, who knows?

how do you find these scores? do you just offer a service to sell the **** and charge a commission? or is it like "storage wars" where you bid on storage lockers full of ****?
