maybe next time you should just flex your muscles and point at your manly S&W sticker, that'll show him!

Cool story, brah.

True story: there are a pair of J-shaped tire marks leading up to where my car is parked outside the lab today.

The marks are J-shaped. In other words, they are indicative of the fact that a handbrake turn was performed to get the car lined up into the parking slot.

I don't normally do stupid crap like that, I was just really quite enthusiastic about being alive this morning, and the weather was cold enough to easily break grip on the rears at a moderate speed.

TSE's customer service is amazing.

Buying again from them many times given the opportunity, I wish all of the forum vendors could have TSE's customer service.

/Seriously, one missed promised ship date with a vendor, okay, but THREE??
//4 days behind on my 1.8 swap, I may be in trouble.
///TSE so far has been the only good experience I've had with vendors for this 1.8 swap,

This is a stock 1.6l engine with poor compression, driving a set of RE-01R tires. Wheelspin is not easily achieved in dry ground.

I thought the relative location of aforementioned marks and car were purely coincidental.

Just got back from my son's parent-teacher conference. Top of his class, and excelling in all areas. "A joy to have in class" were her exact words. I'm so proud.

He's 7. Second grade. I'm 50, which means I'll be about 65 by the time he gets out of college.

If you retire and he moves back home, i'll laugh my *** off.

I'll want an update in 15 years.

This just in:
I've been instructed to no drive the turbo car to work anymore because it disturbs some people and others "do not appreciate the image it projects of our agency". This is unbelievable. I'm a god damn, I'll drive what I want, how I want.

You work for a gubmint agency, don't you? On what basis can they discriminate against your choice of transportation, provided that it's legal?

It's called "white male under 45" who by policy cannot be discriminated against. The reality is that Mr. Ex-Military got up in my ----, I ignored him, and he's upset about it. So to get back at me, he and his buddies decided to fight dirty.
