Once, personal computers had no floppy drives.

Then, they had 5.25" floppy drives

Then, they had both 5.25" and 3.5" floppy drives.

Then, they had 3.5" floppy drives.

Now, personal computers have no floppy drives,

Image request. Does anyone ever recall seeing an NA with driving lights in place of the turn signals? I saw it years ago on M net and recall that it was red, I think. They were rectangle driving lights mounted behind a clear cover. I wanted to know who owned the car, or if you have the picture. Trying to show a Miata friend.

I'm selling the car to a friend, so since I have a tire just sitting around I will use it. Although I may plug it and give it to him with the car.

Anybody else see the Mayweather cheap shot? I don't really follow boxing, but that was the least classy piece of sportsman ship I have ever seen. What a piece of ****. I would link a video, but YT is pulling them as fast as people post them it seems.

Ortiz drops his gloves and moves in to apologize for a headbutt, and as soon as he takes a step back, gloves still down, Mayweather like a bitch, gives him a left right and KO's him and wins the match. Then with even more class, he gets in the 80 year old interviewers face after the match and makes himself look even more like a piece of ****.

Dude if I was mayweather I would have done the exact same thing. If you've ever been headbutted before, you'd know it hurts a SHITLOAD more than a punch and does a SHITLOAD more damage than a punch. Especially more than a gloved punch. If you watch a lot of boxing or MMA, you'd also see that a large amount of knockdowns/outs are caused by headbutts, purposeful or accidental. That was obviously a very purposeful headbut. Oritz ******* deserved to be knocked the **** out.

Not at the expense of looking like a classless bitch and a poor sport.

Have you ever had a project car that you knew you should give up on, knowing you won't any time soon have the money or time to invest into getting it running, but you can't bring yourself to part ways with it? Over the last 3 or 4 years I have half-heartedly put my 1st gen RX7 up for sale on forums probably a half dozen times, but always pull it before anyone buys it. I have some parts to go towards the build, and really want to sell them and the car to make money for my Miata, but I just love the damn car too much! The interior is MINT, but I know the longer I let it sit in the weather waiting to be fixed, the worse it will get. I know I should just let the damn thing go and make a profit and move on, but I can't do it!!! I CAN'T!!! I know 5 years down the road I will kick myself in the *** for getting rid of it, but by that time it will have rusted away into disrepair too far to save. If only $10k could fall into my lap, I could get the 302 build, stuffed in, fix all of the other issues and have a nice V8 RX7.

Original c.1870 carte de visite showing a man who looks exactly like Nick Cage. Personally, I believe it’s him and that he is some sort of walking undead / vampire, et cetera, who quickens / reinvents himself once every 75 years or so. 150 years from now, he might be a politician, the leader of a cult, or a talk show host.

This is not a trick photo of any kind and has not been manipulated in Photoshop or any other graphics program. It’s an original photo of a man who lived in Bristol, TN sometime around the Civil War.

I’ve had a lot of questions asking where I purchased this. As followers of my website know, I collect antique memorial photography — images of dead people — from the 1800s. This photo was found in the very back of album that contained an unusual number of Civil War era death portraits (which is why I purchased it). All of the other people in the album, living and dead, were identified by name — this man was not.

Photographer is Professor G.B. Smith. A contact of mine forwarded this interesting article (link) about the photographer, Smith. Turns out he was a confederate Civil War prisoner of war photographer.

Guaranteed to be an original 1860s-70s photograph and not a modern reproduction, copy or photo manipulation
