How do you really feel? Keeping aggression inside is bad. It causes hemorrhoids.

Real quick question since I'm away from the car and can't measure it:

What size T-bolt clamp am I going to need for the 1.6l TB?

She sounds no different than any other black woman walking around the mall talking on the phone. Tim, I guess you'd have a harde time walking through such a place here as you'd be laughing too hard to keep moving. I've seen some funny ****, her crap is rather generic....but I guess what really gets me is that this was aired on the local NEWS channel as a NEWS story. I could see it being played on Colbert/Leno/Steward/Fallon...as a joke, but not on the channel I'm trying to get local news from.

Steve- I hate stupid people equally, I just use various names for organizational reasons....gotta make sure everyone knows who I am talking about so you remember that I insult all people equally when the deserve it.

70mm is the internal diameter, thanks though. There's a bit of material around the butterfly to account for.

OD is appx. 2.5", such that a nominally 2.5" silicone coupler fits nicely around it.

Thus, whatever clamp is specified for use with a 2.5"-class silicone coupler should work.

RockAuto FTW! Just ordered a set of loaded Mazda reman 4 piston calipers, rotors, all needed bearings and seals, with shipping I escaped spending only $325. I even felt I was getting off so cheap I purchased a 4 lug rotor to use as a template to align the 5 lug rotors so I can drill them for 4 lug hubs. Could have been cheaper but the **** is shipping from 4 different locations. Big brake RX7, here I come!

Anybody want to make a guess at what this color is? I think I have found the color for my FB. I'm not even an orange kind of guy, but that orange/gold is just awesome to me. Google isn't giving me much help with searches, I can come close, but not close enough.



That with my new wheels...

So I posted my disapproval of that news story with the chickenhead on a local forum. I'm not surprised that a mild debate has now followed on the level of "funny" of that charater. Without much surprise it has also turned into a race debate as well. In my title I stated that stuff like this makes Atlanta look "hood/trashy" to outsiders. No where did I mention my opinion was based on skin color, but was based on the attitude and choice of bad grammar. Anyone with such attitude and choice of incorrect words gets labeled "hood" or "trashy" in my book.

However, I am getting a chuckle at one person's depiction of who I am. Mind you this is a rather anonymous forum where little info is shared about who is who. I have no shared any information relating to my age, race or sexual gender.

Thus, you dump on any black person who you feel is not in the correct image the white man would like.

You probably work somewhere in an office with white folks, where they regularly talk about what they saw on tv last night. You fear that they gon bring up the topic of the uncouth, unsophisticated, inferior, trashy, HIV-infected, single-mother screaming "where's my baby daddy", making six figures a year but still gettin a welfare check, hamhock eating, watermelon contest winning, no subject-verb agreement, cursing and praising the lord at the same time, black woman. Then you gon feel really ashamed and embarrassed, because unconsciously you look in the mirror and say, "Hey, that's me. I am Cadillac Kimberly!!"

This is a big problem with black people in general. Black people always judging themselves through the eyes of others, and not through the eyes of themselves. You know how much power that gives another man over your life, when he knows that your life is partially based on you proving to him how worthy of a human you are. When the white man knows that his simple judgment of you is enough to make you change your behavior in his favor, then he's not going to have respect for you.

It's like a man who succumbs to every want that a woman has in order to be next to her; she doesn't respect that man. She sees him as having no backbone, being weak, he's not a real man, he's what women call "the nice guy." A woman with a nice guy knows she has all the power in the relationship, and that's why she has the tendency to exploit his weakness to her own advantage. She'll have the man doing all these miscellaneous favors for her, like fixing her bathroom sink, mowing her lawn, taking her out to a free dinner three nights out the week, driving her to the mall to go shopping, massaging her feet, etc. She having the man doing all these things for her, knowing that she ain't giving up no booty at the end of the day.

It's the same thing with the white man, black man relationship. Black people helped build this country up during and after slavery, done fought in every major war for this country during and after slavery, done competed and won gold medals for the country in the olympics ever since lynching was fashionable, done came up with all types of patents and inventions, and arguably have been the hardest working people in the country during and after slavery (that is when the white man would give them a job).

So in conclusion I ask you this: where is our white booty? The relationship between white and black in this country has never been reciprocal. Black people had to fight and struggle for everything they got today.

End
With that said, I'd like to quote Navin R. Johnson, "It was never easy for me. I was born a poor black child. I remember the days, sittin' on the porch with my family, singin' and dancin' down in Mississippi..."

ATL isn't "hood/trashy"? I live in Birmingham, and even I don't stop in most places in the Atlanta metro area after dark if I don't have to.

Second paragraph made me laugh out loud. His description seems pretty dead-on to me, Mike. Always worrying about what the white people are going to think of you.

After meeting Doppelgänger at the Mitty, I can have to say you are wrong Joe. Doppelgänger is a 16 year old homosexual Filipino boy.
