Seems to be the same thing every year. This year I'll try harder..... How many guys would have killed for his support that were putting in the work over the years? His speed is just indicative that some people are just naturally faster than others. Even ... more »
Added reply in a thread How many of you rent? 9/16/2014 9:27 PM
Start with a condo. A house requires all sorts of maintenance and if you haven't got the extra cash in your budget it will only get run down and hurt your investment in it. Start small and work your way up. Build equity and the banks see that as being ... more »

We had to get our bikes down to 88 db to roadrace at a track I used to race at in BC. The first time I took my bike down the main straightaway with all the muffler crap installed I thought my top end was tearing itself apart. All I was hearing was the ... more »

An unreal performance by both guys. I can't believe Herlings not only rode, but was as competitive as he was. That was a race for the ages.

Google glass or something that captures the rider's "real" point of view, like a set of contact lenses that control a microscopic camera built into the goggle frames that show exactly what a rider's eyes are looking at would be awesome. Although that, ... more »
Added reply in a thread I can't believe they are paying me to teach math to high schoolers 9/9/2014 3:20 PM
The number one thing that kept me from enjoying math was not seeing how it could relate to being a useful skill. I could see the necessity in physics and chemistry, and both of those courses had huge math requirements, but just learning the equations ... more »

I laughed at the video, but I laughed harder at the responses to it.
Added reply in a thread Your secret for applying graphics 9/4/2014 1:57 PM
To prevent scratching the decal I use a silicone squeegee. Then I wrap the edge of it with the looped side of velcro tape. If you do get some scratches, hit the graphics with a hair dryer or a heat gun and they should melt away. Using a heat gun on plastic ... more »

I have a client who likes to fly his own. It's not much for luxury, but it's pretty damn fast. He's definitely in the 50+ club. The one pictured below is his second jet. He doesn't really use it to get around though. It's more for shits and giggles.

Windex isn't good for the adhesive. Clean your plastics with straight isopropyl alcohol instead. Windex has non streaking additives and other gunk added to it. If you use a wet method for application all you need is water with a couple of drops of soap. ... more »

Not a motocross bike, but my old boss had one of these he let me take out for a day.

Our local library has some 3D printers available to the public. It might be worth checking out in your area.
Added reply in a thread What would you do? 8/21/2014 4:54 PM
Why not a camera trap? There's plenty of legal precedent that will come back to haunt you if you actually catch somebody with what you've setup. You're not allowed to booby trap your property to cause harm to an intruder. You can shoot the guy in the ... more »

It's a nice place to visit. I have a place in Palm Desert that I use in the winters to get away from the cold up here. I don't have to earn a living there, but the area I'm in has been great. I paid less for a nice house on a golf course than I did here ... more »

I've seen two kids at a young age that I knew were destined for greatness at the pro-ranks. The first was Darcy Lange. He was just ridiculously fast on 80's. The margins he would win by were determined only by how bored he got out front. He did have ... more »

This is an excellent idea. You could create a very nice gated community around this concept. I'm thinking all the houses could also be interconnected to a central underground bomb shelter/church to minimize the resident's exposure to drone strikes.

If it goes full auto maybe. You should add a grenade launcher below the barrel and if I was you, I would put some land mines in your front and back yard. In case you're subjected to a full scale invasion. A tank trench along the boundary between the ... more »

Just because most people here seem to have no idea what socialism represents, it's really easy to define. Anything that's done by the people and for the people. So that includes things like libraries, police forces, fire departments, the military, the ... more »
