Why do you want a Fiesta so much? And if you trade the AK for the Fiesta, how can you shoot the Fiesta later?

45+ mpg. And I can shoot it with my AR, or my shotgun, or my bajillion pistols.

A Buick commercial just came on TV and had a close up of a Brembo brake caliper.

I was sick about a week ago, only a mild sinus cold, I thought it had gone away... over the last 4 or 5 hours my soar throat has come back with a vengeance and I now feel some aches and chills...

Sorry to report no 36D's wrapped around my manhood last night. Used up all my luck earlier in the day getting off () with a warning from the local constabulary. Here's the card he gave me describing my offenses after pulling me over. Enough points there to have my license yanked for a year. Not sure why he let me go but effing thrilled with his well reasoned, insightful decision.

Since when did the police write warnings on the back of a business card? I've gotten two written warnings and they were both on a nice, official-looking, numbered form torn from a pad of similar forms.

Reckless driving for accelerating thru the intersection?

A sweeping left turn from the right lane with no signals just as the light turned yellow. It looks like making that move just took too long and you got nabbed by a cop waiting for you to clear the intersection?

Yeah, I've never gotten a warning before, so??? Guy was a sergeant, maybe he don't need no stinking pad-ges. (sorry)

Moment of weakness, concentrating too hard on not clipping the bumper of a car in the intersection. One of my biggest pet peeves, too.

This town is whack. City police are uber ---- about every little nitpicky thing, probably because the city is broke. I've gotten $50 tickets for parking within 5' of a driveway, on a street where all the residents park as such daily. I got stopped by the sheriff's dept this time.

Yeah, common everyday occurrence pretty much everywhere in the known universe.

I can't figure out where he was, but technically I did do all that. The street I entered is a single lane for half a block, and the 2-lane portion starts exactly where I pulled out of the bank parking lot (left/opposite corner in the above pic), so I essentially entered the roadway where it's a single lane, but chose to be in the lefthand half to prepare to be in the left turn lane. Was still green when I got to the crosswalk, yellow as I passed under the signal, and then settled into the right lane beyond the intersection. And yes I was definitely accelerating through the intersection, as I was in a hurry to get home and shave my ***** before the big night.
