We just got a tire changer and balancer at our shop, finally. I hate paying someone $30 bucks to mount tires.

Unfortunately I'll have to take them to my usual guy and have him put the tires on and balance them for me. He is reasonable though, only about $12 a tire for me. They will get Bridgestone RE-11's in 205/50. That will hardly cope with the 250-275whp and probably 325-350tq I plan on making, but it will be more of a fun street car anyway, I don't plan on needing to have traction.

^$12-$15 a corner sounds reasonable for mounting and balancing. I guess you've got a 5.0 swap done or planned.

Teen girl with No Vagina pregnant by sperm survival from oral sex
A strange tale of oral sex, a knife fight and the most unlikely of pregnancies recently brought to light by the blogosphere has doctors touting the triumphant persistence of sperm.

In 1988, a 15-year-old girl living in the small southern African nation of Lesotho came to local doctors with all the symptoms of a woman in labor. But the doctors were quickly puzzled because, upon examination, she didn't have a vagina.

"Inspection of the vulva showed no vagina, only a shallow skin dimple," so doctors delivered a healthy baby boy via Caesarean, the authors wrote in a case report published in the British Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology.

Her birth defect -- called Mullerian agenesis or Mayer-Rokitansky-Küster-Hauser syndrome -- didn't necessarily surprise doctors, but her pregnancy did. Even the 15-year-old girl could not believe she was pregnant.

Yet by looking at her records the hospital staff realized the young woman was in the hospital 278 days earlier with a knife wound to her stomach. The average pregnancy lasts 280 days. After interviews, they gathered that "Just before she was stabbed in the abdomen she had practiced fellatio with her new boyfriend and was caught in the act by her former lover. The fight with knives ensued."

The girl arrived at the hospital with an empty stomach -- and therefore with little stomach acid around -- and doctors found two holes from a stab wound that opened her stomach up to her abdominal cavity. The case report said doctors washed her stomach out with a salt solution and stitched her up.

"A plausible explanation for this pregnancy is that spermatozoa gained access to the reproductive organs via the injured gastrointestinal tract," the authors wrote.

Infertility experts note the story, which resurfaced on a Discovery magazine blog, is not only a testament to Murphy's Law but one to arguably nature's most impressive swimmers: sperm.

Yep and yep. 5.0 planned. Have the engine apart and ready to be rebuilt. Already has a pretty aggressive cam, upgraded dual springs, porting the stock e7 heads, few other little upgrades and bolt-ons. T5 trans and 8.8 rear swap. Should be a fun little multi purpose car.

I'll probably make a build thread soon if you guys don't mind a non Miata build. Its Mazda at least.

Question: what the **** is up with Denver International Airport?

A blue apocalypse death horse with veiny anus and red glowing eyes amongst what seems like a slew of other ****?

What, is DIA not boring and sterile and soulless for you? It's called ART which is man's greatest accomplishment.

For those who don't know about the blue mustang, here you go.

Personally, I think it's awesome.

Yeah, DIA is actually one of my favorite airports in terms of cosmetic appeal.

The Neon Tunnel at ORD Terminal 1 Concourse C is pretty cool too, as is the Glass Labrynth in DFW Terminal D (near one of the nation's few surviving Bennigan's restaurants.) And I gotta say, I really miss all the Flying Pigs at CVG.

By contrast, IAH Terminal A and JFK Terminal 2 can both suck my hairy *****. It's as though the planners said to the architect "Just make it ugly." Ayn Rand must have had consecutive layovers at both just before she wrote The Fountainhead.

(JFK Terminal 5, by comparison, is quite nice. Not particularly artsy, but a very comfortable place to be.)

"True, not everyone cares. But around here (and in life) you will find that it helps greatly if you want to be taken seriously. If you want to be taken as a knuckle dragging moron, by all means continue posting questions that have been answered thousands of times, but don't bother to do any research. And make sure to use poor spelling, grammar, and sentence structure because it will give you "street cred."

Or, you could take a little time to research your issue (the search button helps) and pose a legitimate question rather than what comes across as "Wzupp guys i have miata and want turbo but not lots of money lol jk spoonfeed me cuz im too la-z to do any legwork myself".

I'll bet your college professor just loves that.

Yes, I am a douche.

Just try posting a question like that at miataturbo.net and see how much help you get."

I like this dieselmiata guy.

My grandfather, bless him, he tries, but GODDAMN IT!!! The man is walking disaster and ruins everything left out in the open. Just a very few of his more recent accidents, is when he hit two of my cars with a riding lawn mower, my Prelude (which had just been repainted months prior) and my Miata, both in the front bumper in the same place. That was bad enough (he also loves throwing rocks with the lawnmower ,and breaking his neighbors windows on their cars and houses), but now I'm trying to find a front bumper cover for my RX7, since he sold my other FB to a scrap metal man without first consulting me. I would have agreed had he let me get my ******* $1000 RB street port exhaust system, and the front bumper cover and tail light off the car first, like I had planned. So now I'm out a valuable exhaust system, and left having to find a used bumper cover, which is rare, or a new one for $600, as well as a right tail light, which is expensive, new or used. Would it be wrong for me to demand him buy me these parts, since he did originally say he would pay to have my cars repainted when he scraped them up. I hate to be a dick to my gramps, but damn, he is breaking my bank!

Don't get me wrong, I think it's incredibly awesome. I just didn't think some of that stuff would get approved for an international airport. Not to mention I skimmed some articles covering some kind of doomsday conspiracy related to the airport and the way it's overbuilt. Just overall weird **** considering I'm used to boring old TPA and BUF.

If you think DIA is "boring" take a walk around Atlanta-Hartsfield....you'll think you just landed in ******* Africa. For some odd reason, some moron decided that everyone coming into ATL needs a full education on African history...giving off the vibe that everyone in Atlanta is an African and that we live like African tribal people. There is barely anything about the history of the city, the war, the other famous companies that are in Atlanta.....just a bunch of African tribal artifacts and every picture of a person in ATL is a black person. It's racist as ****....like BET or Ebony magazine. For an added laugh, on the far West entrance (by the MARTA station/taxi pick-up area) there is a big scale model of the rental car center. Whoever stuck all the Hotwheels in there muct have had a sense of humor as it's filled it Porsches, RX-7s, Supras, BMW Z3s, Ferraris and other sports cars....with a van/SUV sprinkled in here and there. I wish the rental car center had such cars lol
