Pulled both sway bars out over the wekend trying to isolate clankity rattle noises. (It was 949 end links.) Drove to work and back - and lunch in the middle - without any sways at all. It was kinda fun and not scary at all, though I did not push it hard. I can imagine raising the spring rates alot and installing a much less than baller front bar.

I went to Elevation Burger the other day and the guy at the cash register told me I needed to see it. I wasn't sure if that was an insult and he was calling me a big nerd.

Ebay is being ******* gay, as usual. Selling a few things, and even though I picked Buy Now, and set a price, it won't show up in the actual page. I can go back into revise mode and it shows that I did pick Buy Now with a price, but there is no option to edit, even if I did want to change it. Why is ebay doing this to me!? I don't want to wait 7 days for an auction at $0.99 to play out. Wasting my time.

I am moderately annoyed when I see a movie being sold as "DVD & BluRay + Digital Copy!"

Meaning what, the DVD and the BluRay disc are both encoded in an analog format?

Well. I see your point... but a DVD and BluRay disc themselves are not digital. They are physical.

So is the physical disc on which the "digital copy" is stored.

Billy Crudup is in the movie "The Watch" dressed as he is in that picture. I knew I recognized him, but couldn't place him (so my face looked similar to the next image).

Then it dawned on me that he was the actor who played Dr. Manhattan from "The Watchmen."

It's really quite an odd sensation to be sitting on your couch, watching From Russia with Love and hammering away on the laptop, and you suddenly feel a cat brush against your leg.

Particularly if you do not own a cat.

Kudos for watching a classic James Bond movie.

I think Joe watched A View to a Kill recently too. Just a hunch.

Let me see if I can explain more clearly:

1: Be sitting on couch, wearing shorts, in a dark room, at night.
2: Feel something warm and furry brush against leg.
3: Freak the hell out, jump up from couch.
4: Realize "Oh, it's just the cat."
5: Think "Wait a minute, I don't own a cat. Why is there a cat in my house?"
6: Share this experience with MT.
