I much preferred the smell of carbon paper -- it was my favorite part of the doctor's office visits. The cold hands on my genitals was only OK.

Not that one (Caterpillar sucks, btw) but another one (Japanese engines are better). One making only 496hp at 1,800 rpm but 1,620ft lbs of torque at 1,350 rpm out of 15.24 liters of engine.
It is actually a pretty good size turbo for my 7.6 liter Pontiac engine in the old GTO, muahahaha!

Ahh, Labrynth.

The screenshot wasn't from any game or movie, it was just a test rendering from the folks that did the CGI work on Last Starfighter. It's sort of emblematic of the look and feel of most "lifelike" CG of the era, and it makes me nostalgic.

(I'm watching Westworld right now. It contains what I believe to be the first computer-aided visual effect in a motion picture.)
