Lemme guess, Toyota fan? Had a Tacoma, wasn't that impressed with anything other than through resale value which I took full advantage of. Toyota is to trucks as Apple is to computers (okay, it's not that bad, but the cult mentality is similar).

Let me know when your 3k dollar truck can handle 800 pound pay loads, get 31mpg and successfully take Pusha, Jtothawhat and Buffon on a night of drunken stupors in Key West and get harassed by fat nurses and convincing cross dressers.

Brainy wouldn't answer my texts earlier as I sat through 3hrs of Houston traffic pondering our existence...so I talked to cleverbot when I finally got home.

Cleverbot: Equilibrium.

User: But without a pressure difference there is no flow up the drill pipe. Equilibrium is bad.

Cleverbot: Why do you talk like a robot?

User: Because I'm an engineer. I am your father.

Cleverbot: How do you know you are not a human?

User: Because I have borderline personality disorder.

Cleverbot: That's cute!

User: Yes, and so is herpes.

Cleverbot: So is a parable in the mouth of fools.

User: Says cleverbot....OH THE IRONING.

Cleverbot: Oh the things they will sing!

User: This is like talking to rainman.

Cleverbot: You are my honey .

User: Or helping out at the nursing home.

Cleverbot: Oh thats nice. Are you a nurse?

User: We've already been over this. I'm an engineer.

Cleverbot: Hahahaahhahah no.

User: Idiota.

Cleverbot: 5.

User: Quinta Estacion.

Cleverbot: I don't know him. What movies has he been in?

User: She sings great songs.

Cleverbot: Nope, she just sings one very annoying song called, Friday.

User: Does every one of your conversations boil down to putting down Rebecca Black? Leave the poor girl alone.

Cleverbot: I doubt it.

User: Then impress me.

Cleverbot: Shrimp!

User: You can boil them, fry them, barbeque them, make shrimp gumbo, etoufe...

Cleverbot: Why, thank you.

User: Ok...so you've never seen Forrest Gump...definitely not human.

Cleverbot: What? Of course I'm human! But you aren't.

User: We've been over this too. I have a personality disorder that keeps me from being empathetic...but I am in fact human.

Cleverbot: Then you are lucky.

User: No, George Carlin is lucky he is dead and doesn't have to put up with the **** I do every day in the crazy world he left behind.

Cleverbot: Thats off topic back to time please.

User: Time....and space...illusions that are only reality when they are shared.

Cleverbot: You have no knowledge on aliens then?

User: I watch Stargate, and BattleStar Galactica, and Star Trek.

Cleverbot: I like star trek, but I like Pokemon better because it is an anime.

User: **** anime.

Cleverbot: Be more imaginative, would you?

User: You're lame then.

Cleverbot: No I'm not, everyone sleeps sometimes.

User: Lamer than the legs of the parable passage.

Cleverbot: I care, but you're spelling it wrong.

User: Then how is it spelled?

Cleverbot: *college.

User: No particular college then...

Cleverbot: There is no reason to anything anyway.

User: That's exactly what I told Scott today while stuck in traffic.

User: Pi.

Cleverbot: What's the number for pi?

User: 3.14159.......

Lexus LS600HL is a pretty beastly car! Took one out today for a "test drive" after a friend did a valve spring recall... and wow! For a huge, super luxury car, that thing hauls ***! 5.0L V8 hybrid capable of 170mph, reclined back seats with foot rests, FTW! One of the perks of the job. Still waiting for an ISF to come in, or in almost no chance, an LFA.

**** Wolverine boots. I should have known better than to buy Wolverine, so shame on me I guess. My $300 1000 Mile Burton combat boots have taken a **** on me after less than a year. Really only 3-4 months, since the first 9 months I maybe wore them 10 times. Goddamn leather is coming apart and disintegrating on the inside heal area on one boot, and the heal is coming apart from the sole, and the sole as a whole is coming apart from the boot, on the other. 3 months for $300, totally worth it. I was expecting at least 5 years of good use from these... guess I got suuuurved!!! *snap snap snap*

Timberland Titan, part of the "Pro Series" collection. Comfy as hell, and durable- I get about 3 years out of each pair, worn every single day.





Under $150, and I **** you not when I say it's the best boot I've ever worn. It is, in fact, the only article of footwear I own apart from a pair of fuzzy slippers. They're available in both soft-toe and safety-toe.

Sperry Top-Siders:



Worn every single day. They typically last me around 4 months and run $69 a pair. I've owned dozens.

Damn, you really are a fagggot.

Speaking of shoes, I'm gonna go get some Asics 2160 GT's tomorrow to help get rid of shin splints. My brother got a pair and his shin splints are gone, I got the "Gel Nimbus" which are supposed to be better but they didn't help the problem.

Anyone else got a way besides stretching before and after a run to get rid of shin splints?

I was actually looking at those last night as a replacement. The 8'' version with composite toe looks like my next boot. I just couldn't find much info on them, but if you give them high praise, I can give them a shot for ~$150. How does the sizing seem to run? True to size or should I go a bit smaller as seems to be the case with many boots.

Timberland Pro series boots all the way for me. I've worn a few different boot brands over the years and these are by far the best ones out of the bunch.

My last pair was going on 4 years but the interior skeleton was starting to fall apart and was rubbing on my ankle. Both toes had the steel exposed, tread was almost non existent, laces have been replaced a handful of times, etc etc. That particular pair saw a lot of work in all seasons. I'm talking all winter long in a foot of snow around the jobs, mud up to my knees, and the blazing hot summer days. I wore them year round and they did me well. I should seriously take pictures and send them to Timberland.

I just recently bought another 8" pair and got a 6" pair just to try out. I'm not sure how vast the Pro series is option wise, but I always get the steel toe, oil/slip resistant, 8" boot.

However, when I have to wrench on the trucks or my car I almost ALWAYS switch to shoes. I have a hard time trying to crawl around under the trucks with big heavy lugs on my feet and usually it just speeds up the "throwing the wrench across the shop" process. I know that shops have rules though and they require safety toe boots, so if that's the case then Timberland Pro is your best bet.

+1 on Wolverine's sucking.

+1 on Timberland PROs. Their hiking boots are great too. Had a pair that worked flawlessly for 2 weeks in the northern New Mexico wilderness in ridiculous conditions with no care at all.

Geez, my feet would be mush if I wore boots every day.

Running shoes, flip-flops, my feet gotta breathe.

My feet got used to it after awhile. In my working life, the past 10 years have been all work boot type jobs. When I was working full time concrete I was even to the point of wearing the boots out I was just so used to them.

Now if I work here I'm barefoot all day, only to throw on slippers to walk the dogs. Just going out I throw on my skate shoes. Anything work wise means work boots.

Talking about the boots reminds me of a few years back, I was standing on top of a wall holding the pump hose pouring a wall. Meanwhile, the builder and some other "suit" type individuals were on the job watching. My brother started talking some **** to me about wearing headphones. He was down on the scaffold looking up at me and I had a split second thought of just kicking him dead in the face with the steel toe. I seriously had to fight my body and keep my foot from moving. So +1 for steel toes cause you can **** someones day up with these things. lol
