Heard a mind-blowing interview on the drive home last night about resuscitative medicine. A physician/scientist spoke about the time after death (defined, I believe, by a lack of brain activity) like this:

If you had told someone 100 years ago that it would be possible for human beings to fly up to the moon, touch it and then fly back to tell people about it - they would think you were talking nonsense. The time after actual death could end up being to us what the moon was to those people.

Really interesting stuff on the biology of death and resuscitation. Did you know that CPR is basically less than 60 years old?

Do want.

Also, can you imagine how pissed you'd be if your dad built you this car, and then decided to sell it because he thought it was too fast for you. SO CLOSE!

That car is exempt from emissions testing in CA.

(gears grinding in head)

Does anybody know whether a Datsun 510 can be made to handle like a Miata?

A soldier, a priest, and an engineer were condemned to die on the guillotine. The soldier went first, and he made an unusual request. He asked to be executed facing up, so he could watch the descending blade, and thus die bravely.

The rope was pulled, and the sharp blade screamed downward. But halfway down the track, it screeched to a halt. The crowd roared, and following tradition, the soldier was set free.

The priest was next, and following the soldier's lead, he also asked to lie down facing up, so he could die facing heaven.

The machine was checked over, and found to be in good working order. Again the rope was pulled, and the blade descended. But again, halfway down the track, it jammed. And so the priest, like the soldier, was set free.

The executioners carefully inspected the machine once again, but everything seemed to be in order. They could detect nothing to explain why the blade had stopped. They ran it through its paces several times without a prisoner in place, and it worked flawlessly.

Finally, it was the engineer's turn. Like the others, he asked to be executed face-up, so he could see how the mechanism worked. Just as the executioner was about to pull the rope, the engineer called out, "Wait! Wait! I see what the problem is!"

Well, that was baller. After Jake decided my first time on a motorcycle needed to be at midnight we could trail ride, I took a couple minutes to get familiar with how to work the clutch and we rode Sam Houston for a bit. Then we continued drinking, doing really stupid ****, slept 1-3 hours, drove to Marble Falls for the Hidden Falls Adventure Park and rode for a few hours. **** is bauce.
Dat hilly stuff:

Africa:

3,000 acres of trail riding:

I only dropped the bike twice, but I'm kind-of a timid ------. This is an awesome hobby because you can just go wherever you want. I think I need a bike.

Nah, that was kind of awesome and now we can tell people, "Trey hadn't ridden and the first time he did it was drunk, at midnight."

I gotta find a bike, lol.

Now, occassionally going for a ride could be a great outlet/stress reliever...


As long as you don't break a rib, like a co-worker's buddy did when they were trail riding this weekend.
