The Random Thread

Home  \  Off Topic  \  The Random Thread

Ok, in a bid to try and eliminate going off-topic in other threads I thought we could have a Random Thread. This is where we can discuss absollutely ANYTHING about ANYTHING. If you want to start a conversation, just do it. Just don't go off topic so much in other threads, if you think a topic is going off track, simply suggest taking the conversation here, as there's no way we can move parts of topics here, you'll have to use some initiative sometimes, lol! I'll stick this here and see how it goes! Yes guys, this is a thread that can actually have no point......just don't abuse it to up the post count by spamming it with letters and numbers etc, It is also not a post whoring thread...I guess, lol. Thanx!

At 2,000 posts, you get the smilies, but only people with over 1,000 posts can see them.

The night before the last I went to Unity 06, which is a rave in phoenix, it was the coolest thing I have ever been to, seen, or experienced. Mind melting graphics, hundreds of green and red lasers shooting around above, heart stopping music, insanity.

But I now have a cold, and I dont feel good.

Raves are not all about drugs and bad people either, about 1% of the people their were on drugs(but at any event some people will be on drugs), there were kids as young as 5, to people as old as 65, there were people selling stuff to support the buddhist community in phoenix as well.

If you guys have a chance to go to a LEGAL rave event, go and you will not be dissapointed.:thumbs:

Ill try to get some pictures up soon!!

I think it should be known that Ted Kaczynski, the Unabomber killed his first victim today, on 1985. lol...That and more stuff that happened today at:

Another joke:
Reaching the end of a job interview, the human resources person asked a young engineer fresh out of MIT what kind of a salary he was looking for.

"In the neighborhood of $140,000 a year, depending on the benefits package."

"Well, what would you say to a package of 5-weeks vacation, 14 paid holidays, full medical and dental, company matching retirement fund to 50% of salary, and a company car leased every 2 years...say, a red Corvette?"

"Wow! Are you kidding?"

I will just say that if you can picture a girl who doesn't know how to have sex and has never even orgasmed, this is what I am stuck with.

She not only has NOT orgasmed, but she doesn't know what it is apparently, because she doesn't know how to do it to me.

She thinks that if you just touch a guy and feel him up that because it feels good, you can just stop and he will be happy, like she did something good.

She's not willing to learn either.

I kind of dumped her tonight. Don't know what I'm gonna do!

He says the highly durable glasss is kind of like the type used in aquariums, and that it is coated with something that will repel dust, but if it's a daily driver you might have to clean it once every 3 weeks.

posted by  chris_knows

Haha yes, I've had my G2 since August now. No, they do not make you do another eye test.. they just make you go drive lol, it's really that simple. Then you get your temporary license right away if you pass (like with your G1) and recieve your G2 card in the mail (again, like your G1). :thumbs:

When is it you get to go for your G2?

Not bad then, you should have no problems.. especially if you have a decent amount of driving time done. My one friend failed his driving test twice (once in the winter cause the curb has a snow pile and while parallel parking he hit it).. lol.

Lol...I know two people who have failed their G1 tests 3 times lol (They still don't have a license).

LOL wow. I definitely...missed that one.

care to explain to me wtf are G1 and G2 tests?

posted by  Inygknok

Well here in Ontario, we have 3 stages for your drivers license. Your written (learners permit) is your G1.. you have that for 1 year (unless you do drivers ed, then it's only 8 months). Then you go in for your G2 (driving test.. let's you drive alone, you can't have any alcohol in your system). Then you have that for a year before you can go for your full G (another driving test, but on a highway.. it let's you have up to .08% BAC {blood alcohol content}).

I think I covered everything..


Oh and Chris, the main things you have to remember is to always check over your shoulder and signal everytime you turn the wheel (to switch lanes, park, turn, etc).. and when you come to a complete stop at a light, don't roll across the line lol (that was my only real mistake).

posted by  car_crazy89

Thanks Pete...I always do use my turn signals because my dad keeps telling me to...for EVERYTHING lol.

BTW It's Nostradamus' Birthday lol.

3:41am local time....


well, my throat hurts from all of the screaming we did today while playing Halo 2 and Mario Kart: Double Dash (won the MKDD tournament, won most shit overall on halo, meaning i took the win for the day). just got done talking to one of the girls im interested in, in fact, the sweetest one out of the bunch. just wish she would work out......

anyhow, since this is the random thread, i feel like saying random shit like the above statements.

i keep reading threads, and even after 2 days, i still cant get all the gay jokes about cliffy out of my head.

currently listening to "Otherside" from the Final Fantasy X original soundtrack. cant get it out of my head either.

i have to start organizing the pictures of the Supra to make both write ups, the english and the spanish versions...... cba due to lazyness. gotta also post up the pictures of the old parts im selling...... guess what? yea......

im wondering wat other kinds of pictures synthetic trust has.....

slurms a football player, but he sure does remind me of the "little brother" type of person, the kind that eats boogers and u just have to pat on the back sometimes.

i feel like playing halo again with a whole bunch of people again..... its fun to snipe people with just 1 clip and then just bash them with the covenant carbine.

why the hell do i drink chocolate milk at age 21 and a half?

why is pepsi so ****ing awesome?

where the hell is chrisv? i need him to weld a crack in my floors.

Quote i made up yesterday cuz i was feeling upset with the girl i was talking to a short while ago (Marie btw), and i was just being a bit grumpy and immature: Life? Knock on wood! <---- i better get credit if u bastards feel like using it.

i think im sick..... i got some fever.

i wonder how long this post will be......

bleach starts in about 8 minutes.... GO ORIHIME! (Yuna's better though)

i think im done ranting random stuff. phew, that feels much better!

today, i remembered how painful it is to fall off my bike!
it all started at 10:30am (local time) and i was free-wheeling down a hill when my front wheel locked up! i went head over handle bars (good thing i was wearing a helmet, my head hit the ground first!), a taxi driver stopped to help me (which was nice of him:thumbs: ) and i was in agony! no broken bones but cuts all over! i had work too (lifting heavy boxes etc which played hell with my ellie bows!)
later on (hometime 8pm) i look at my left elbow! one lump as big as pop-eyes chin!!!
ive had to go to hospital i thought! so i got to a+e at 9pm and i waited and waited till 12pm where i told the receptionist that ill be back tomorrow!
so tomorrow ill be going back, hopefully ill have the day off too!:laughing:
it hurts though, real painfull!
(apart from that, ive had a great day today!)

cliffy,,, i just realised its been a year and 7days ago since the Buncefield Fuel depot explosion, (i was looking it up just now on google!) did the police etc find out what caused it???
all i know was that it was the site of europes biggest fire since WWII

posted by  True_Brit

i was driving today and was wondering what happens if you throw your gear into 4th from first, would it stall or just drive really really slow

posted by  salimander13

first, it would be hard to push it into the 1st gear (it would try to jam, and most possibly even grind). the engine will redline like a mad cow. and im sure something will go wrong in the transmission cuz of the ratios. if you're going faster than wat 1st gear allows, something is just bound to go completely wrong.

posted by  Inygknok

Yeah...but if you read it again, he says shifting from 1st to 4th lol.

I don't know what would happen...I think it would just lunge and go really slow though lol.

posted by  chris_knows

You may have misunderstood, I think he meant jump from 1st to 4th.. :wink2:

posted by  car_crazy89

lol, it sure does. It's been like that for quite some time. I keep forgetting to replace it.

posted by  elchango36

I didn't think it was that long ago! Although I guess when I think about it, it was some time ago, lol...all I know is that it happened on a Sunday morning....I think. I don't think anybody was to blame as such :laughing:

posted by  Inygknok

Oh?...Did you know that millions of years ago, there were jungles everywhere and bigger plants. You know why? There was A LOT of carbon dioxide. Today, trees and plants are smaller and fewer. Therefore, we have LESS carbon dioxide than the dinosaurs did. In 10,000 years, plants will look like the prairies and there will be even less CO2. :smoke:

thats called contamination, not pollution. contamination is produced by wildlife and nature itself. pollution by us humans.

posted by  chris_knows

well im not a scientist but i guess the more things we put in the air that make it into the atmosphere, make the atmosphere denser therefore all the sattelites and things we have put to orbit the earth should stay up there longer than previously thought, so if they expected it to fall in 10 years it may be there alot longer, like floating in saltwater compared to fresh water

I too remember CF being more active, and I'm sure it will be again...as more and more members join (atleast one or two a day at the moment!). I think it has something to do with how we rank on search engines though. I mean, we used to be the top listing, then we dropped down a little bit....Oh well.

Mr.Brit, you didn't go for your Christmas do?

I don't understand what you're saying. I know that CF is often after that Forum....but that's as far as my understanding goes, lol. It's also second to another CF....:laughing:


I think it's mainly because we only have one admin here. We need a group of them really, or atleast an assitant admin too!

Back on topic, lol....or Off-Topic.....We went out on the town in one of these yesterday night...Great fun it was, lol. It was a British Transport Police public order van. Ours was slightly newer, and was in the BTP's livery, but was still an LDV...(couldn't find a BTP van)

last year, we went on the town in one of our vans, a lwb transit (55reg) with 3 in the front and about 20 others in the back (problem was as its a courier van,,,no seats) but that was fun when everyone but the driver (honestly) were 3 parts pi55ed!

it was pretty bad too, 1 person died (no suprise really!!!)
a car got pasted across a road when an artic truck drove into it, it sort of mangled itself under the truck! it wasnt the truck drivers fault either, it was the car drivers fault! it was a big cross road, main road passes down the middle and 2 roads branch off, 1 for a housing estate and one to ASDA (Walmart owned supermarket) and the truck was going downhill on the main road and a car pulled out into the direction of the truck! horrible really, shut the road down for 4 hrs! its one o the main roads that link to the airport and where i work, so we had a lot of moaning drivers where i work moaning about the delays etc etc!

As for your other query, simply do the following; (url=)(/url),using the normal brackets (I couldn't display the square once in a demo as CF thinks I'm inputting a url and thus it doesn't display them, lol), and next to then 'equals' sign, copy/paste the address of the site you want displayed, and put any text you want displayed, such as 'clicky' in between the middle brackets, like you would normally do with the web addy!

it was chucking it down with hail (frozen rain, i dont know how to spell it) the other day, my friend was doing 95mph when the road wasnt covered in the little marbles of hail, anyway, he hit a patch of compacted ice and went flying off the road, hit the end of the metal railing that lines the motorway and then flew in the air covering abouth 50ft and landed on the side!
he was alright, but broke his ankle!

Just got an e-mail from my ISP who got an e-mail from NBC because someone on my IP address was downloading copyrighted material (American Pie 3)...I'm not downloading anything right now (Trying to make Tom Clancy's Rainbow 6: Vegas to work on a computer with system specs lower than minimum requirements lol). My sister started using BitTorrent less than a week ago. My sister's the one that was downloading it, which really pisses me off because I've been using it for about a year and a half without any problems (excepts for exceeding my bandwidth lol)...I don't really use torrents too often anymore (Now I look on http://www.projectw.org for much faster downloads lol) I always thought that downloading stuff was perfectly legal in Canada. It's just a warning but could a copyright owner take legal action for something like this? I've looked on the Ontario government site, searched the laws, and it has absolutely nothing on anything. The Canadian government site's law section gave me a couple of results, but none of them answered my questions. I found out that the law was being redone to be more thorough, but couldn't find it anywhere.

This random post has a question...Does anyone have some free time to look up the laws for file sharing in Canada? lol

From: http://www.wipo.int/copyright/en/faq/faqs.htm#P67_8282




Also, to prevent this, International laws such as the Berne Convention for the Protection of Literary and Artistic Works states:


Canada is party to the Berne Convention signed April 10, 1928, UCC Geneva (Universal Copyright Convention) signed August 10, 1962 (AKA the Geneva Act) and TRIPS, Trade Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights, signed January 1, 1995. ***Thanks to Wikipedia for research materials!***

In other words, it's protected under your laws just as it would be in America or wherever the copyright was enacted. If a work is copyrighted and you use it without permission or copy it, the owner can sue you for infringement if caught since your country is party to those acts I named above.

Her husband responds, "They're twins! If you've seen Juan, you've seen Ahmal."

Mahatma Gandhi, as you know, walked barefoot most of the time, which produced an impressive set of calluses on his feet.

im back on finally, i spent all weekend cleaning my car and my dads car! (lazy bastard:laughing: )
hes was in a rougher state than mine, but ive bought back to looking new!
i used a great car wax, Autoglym Super Resin polish, great stuff, really made the cars look a treat! great on red cars (mine is red, my dads is metallic purple)
and a bottle of Autoglym Interior Shampoo, which also worked a treat, especially when the car my dad bought (for £250) had mould on the seats and belts etc, (the car was 11 years old and looked like it wasnt cleaned since)
id recommend it to who ever really!
i used to use Turtle Wax brands but this is far more better!!!
(but i dont have pictures)

Is your dads car a Vectra too? I used to use Turtle Wax but it doesn't seem as good as it used to be....The expensive stuff seems much better, lol. I tend not to wax my cars, I just wash them and occassionally I'll chamoise them...:laughing:

I'm getting pissed off with Microsoft Office...I have Office 2007, but with Windows XP. I just realized that instead of typing, I could enable something so that I can talk through a microphone and it would type everything for me. When I went to look for how to enable it, I only found stuff for older Office versions, where you still had the top menu with "Tools", "File", "View", "Options", etc. I checked for the version I have, but I guess MS Office 2007 is intended for Vista, because everywhere I go, it shows how to enable voice recognition in Vista.

So does anyone know how to enable voice recognition either in Windows XP (Pro if it makes a difference), or in Microsoft Office 2007?

I decided I'm not gonna waste $$ on over-priced products like racing headers that probably won't do crap and focus on reducing weight from the car.


My main way of reducing weight would be by changing the seats to lightweight 15 lb race seats, and that's awesome, except for the fact I am afraid of how it will look w/ the top down. Most race seats are black w/ red or blue in the middle. I would get an all black seat but I dunno.

Supposedly the factory seats are 40+ lbs (mine are not power seats at least, but the recliner is "power" operated)


Then I would buy a braille lightweight battery, weighs 11.5 lbs. Supposedly this can save 30+ lbs from the stock battery.



This is all stuff I can do RIGHT NOW.


The future has more plans which are more difficult.


Oh I forgot to add I'm buying a schnell short shift kit. It's just 189 bucks...most of the other ones I found were 450+

That's weird...So many people downloaded BETA versions of it (legally) so that stuff like that doesn't happen, but I guess it was inevitable. They have people constantly trying to hack it to see how it could become safer too. They're probably going to release a Service Pack for it in a couple weeks.

I looked around about what's been hacked, and I think Microsoft's DRM was hacked. I've looked for what DRM is, but can't tell for sure. I think DRM is copyright protection, like how songs from iTunes are in AAC, so only the iPod can play them. The hack still hasn't been released though, because the last person who did it was hunted down by Microsoft...Not sure if they ever found out who he was though. The person that hacked it now is this guy (http://www.reactos.org/wiki/index.php/Alex_Ionescu), who is about 20 years old lol.

Different issue/rant here now. I recently read in a freebie London newspaper about these people who prey on children. I understand that this is sick and that these people should be dealt with in the most severe way possible, but my issue was with the newspaper in question, 'Metro' I think. They basically gave a list of all the internet lingo so that parents could understand and see if their children were at risk without letting them know. Some of the lingo I had never heard of, and was rightfully added to the list as it was sick, but some of the lingo was standard language on the internet, like LOL, or ASL (boarderline, but not only perves use it I guess), JK, and other commonly known abrieviations. The only thing that worries me is that when these parents see people talking to their kids and using this lingo (mainly LOL or similar), the first thing they're gonna think is that their kid is talking to an internet paedophile.....This isn't really that big an issue, but it could cause un-necessary worry amonst parents. Also, it just seems that the papers should have known better, Careful guys, no more txt tlk......lol......:ohcrap:

posted by  Cliffy

ASL isn't really perverted though...I use it all of the time because...well two reasons:
1. There is a surprising number of adults (not pedophiles) in chat rooms.
2. I'm more prone to talk to girls lol.
Teachers in our schools are required to take a workshop so that they know what every abbreviation is here lol.

I hung out w/ a girl today who I've known for a few years and we ended up in my bed together, watching a crappy movie that she brought over.


Before I go further, a little background:

We HAVE done sexual things together, about 3 years ago.

She's a horny mother ****er. She even screwed some guy earlier that day by her own admission.

Though I've known her 3 years, we have only just begun hanging out again recently.

She is a very weird girl. She once asked me a serious question that went, "Would you rather be polka dotted or striped?" But she is not dumb or ditzy. She's just weird, so I am not sure if the normal rules of girls would apply directly to her.



First we were just laying and watching, then she got bored and began to, as she called it, "snuggle" me. No problem w/ that. Then, we began to talk about a time, a long time ago, where I played a joke on some kid, and she said, "That's why I would never f^ck you."

Then somehow she was asking me what my "kinks" were, meaning a kinky thing that turns you on....

I was playing w/ her hair right after and she told me not to pull her hair because it makes her really horny.

She grabbed my ass a few times during all this also, but she tells me she does w/ all her friends (this is likely true, if you know how she is) and eventually fell asleep w/ her arms around me (how adorable)



We ended up doing nothing. Know why? I didn't know how to take her. Does "don't play w/ my hair..." mean play w/ it and make me horny? Does, "that's why I wouldn't f^ck you" mean, "I really would f^ck you."


Normally, I'd say yes, but she is different. Very different. I wouldn't put it past her to say strange things like that in complete honesty and think nothing of it.


But then, we HAVE done things before, and she is a horny ass girl.



I didn't want her to get offended by me trying anything. She is a good friend.



So someone w/ some real knowledge on girls interpret this for me. I really don't know what to think.


I am gonna hang out w/ her again soon.


Any help?

April 26th 1992 there was a riot on the streets

Tell me where were you you were sittin' home watchin' your tv

While I was participating in some anarchy

First spot we hit it was my liquor store

I finally got all the alcohol I can't afford

With red lights flashin' time to retire

Oh tho we turned that liquor store into a structure fire

Next stop we hit it was the music shop

It only took one brick to make the window drop

Finally we got our own p.a.

Where do you think I got this guitar that you're hearing today

When we returned to the pad to unload everything,

It dawned on me that I need new home furnishings

So once again we filled the van until it was full

Since that day my livin' room's been more comfortable

Cause everybody in the hood has had it up to here

it's getting harder and harder each and every year

Some kids went in a store with their mother

When she came out she was gettin some peppers

They said it was for the black man

They said it was for the mexican

But not for the white man

But if you look at the streets it wasn't about Rodney King

It's bout this ****ed up situation and the ****ed up police

It's about coming up and staying on top or screamin' 187

on a mofo cop

It's not written on the papers, but its written on the wall

You are in a bed with a girl you've previously fondled who insists on grabbing your ass and cuddling while you make her horny with "hair play"...dude...make a move.

It doesn't matter what her real motives are, she is giving you obvious clues to initiate sexual contact. If she is just teasing, you won't know until she rejects you...and if she does that, let that be the last time you talk to that bitch playing such a dangerous game. If you continue to play along, you are f*cking yourself and numerous guys after you by allowing her to believe these games are ok to play. The stupid bitches that play these "teaser" games have gotten men locked up by getting themselves raped or "sexually harassed". **** them.

So, to not answer your question, the best thing for you to do is make a CONFIDENT move on her. If you go in without confidence and she rejects you, then you can't necessarily call her a teaser...you'd have to call yourself a name. You know what I'd call you. At 20, she should know she is flirting, so she should expect a "move". And considering that she is "weird", she really knows what she is doing; weird, solitary people analyze things the most. But whatever you do, while making your move, don't take all f*cking day. That is so, like, not confident. Also, preserving the "friendship" between you two is pointless if you want more. You'd be lying to her and yourself. Don't lean on the friendship to p*ssy out. You haven't seen her in like 3 years...are you really "good" friends?

Since I don't know you, her, or the exactness of the situation, I have two opinions on her actions.

1.
She is a phony freak. Why? Well, from my experience, it is rare for a girl her age to 'admit she screwed someone' just before coming over to flirt. Most girls her age don't have the detachment ability nor could they handle a public "dirty girl" image. The only type of girl her age that I've experienced that would admit such a thing is a COMPLETE WHORE. But a whore that is bold and dirty enough to admit she'd just slept with someong wouldn't have wasted an evening giving indirect "hints" to a guy and not f*ck him, let alone plan a second evening. You would bore a whore and a whore would let you know you bored her.

or

2.
She thinks you are a joke. She says the things she says to see how you will react, but she knows you won't make a move. You were her entertainment. She will continue to push you to the limit until you make a move...then she will stop...because you aren't playing her game anymore. She may be a freak, but she doesn't want to be one with you. You just boost her confidence.


Either way, I'm confident she is a tease that you should get rid of. You have a Porsche; I'm sure you should be able to snag a less confusing girl. Don't waste your time making her your friend. These type of people usually interfere with your relationships.

I personally think your confidence is too low. If your confidence was where it should be, she would know better than to test your nuts like this.

posted by  What

You are right: If I make a move and she doesn't like it, how can she blame me, considering how she was acting.


But I don't think I emphasized enough how weird this girl is. For example, she asked me once, in 100% seriousness, "Would you rather have your insides be made of jello or pudding?" That may seem insignificant, but the idea I get is that she may not be able to judge how people perceive you when you say things.


She currently has "two boys", meaning guys she's screwing, and countless people she's dating. Big turn-off, to be honest.


If she was a girl I didn't know, I wouldn't think twice, but because I have a confidential relationship, it matters to me what she thinks.


After careful thought and your advice, I'm pretty sure she wanted some. I forgot to mention that she even asked me if I was a virgin, which probably is a dead giveaway that she wanted what I was not giving.


However she seems a little too dirty for my liking and I think I may try to avoid her from now on rather than go out w/ her again. Dirty girls carry AIDS and various other diseases.

posted by  Bronxie

Taking the "super-weirdness" into consideration, I assume she is a free-spirited hippy type of girl...? Well, the hippy type doesn't lie, so when she said she wouldn't f*ck you, she probably meant it...at the moment. The hippy types also don't know what they want, so she probably wouldn't have a problem with you moving in on her on your next "date".

I understand your health concern, but I hope this isn't an excuse to avoid making a move on her.

posted by  What

Nah, she's probably "clean" so to speak, but if I wasn't so damn turned on that night that I just had to **** her right then and there, maybe she just doesn't do it for me.

Physics Project: Build a Mousetrap Car

We have to make a car powered by a mousetrap. The goal is to get it to travel the greatest distance.

Here's what a friend and I are thinking of doing, but I figured why not ask here since some people might know a thing or two about physics lol.

Here's a photochop of what I'm thinking of doing:

http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b323/chris_knows/mousetrapcar.jpg

Basically the mousetrap pulls an audio cassette film which is wound around a spool, which turns the rear wheels. I read that smaller front wheels and large rear ones will provide the greatest distance.

Any ideas on how to maximize distance? Any help is appreciated.

posted by  chris_knows

I PM him osometimes, especially when I see he's here....but I don't usually get a reply. :ohcrap:

I'd imagine it would bring in quite a bit what with advertising etc....yes, some people do pay for it, lol.

posted by  Cliffy

to get the greatest distance, you want to minimize resistance, ball bearings are a good idea, but i think they might add to much weight to be worth it, wooden dowel through a bushing will probably be better. You also want to gear it up so that it can just barely accelerate, but it will travel the greatest distance. trial and error is probably the only way to find the proper spool/wheel size. i built one once but i didnt have time to test it and i had put wheels that were just a little too big, and it didnt move without help:oops:

posted by  dvdrose18

I'm thinking of drilling holes in the disk too. I'll make sure to try out different spools. Bushings like the small plastic bearing-shaped things?

Thanks for the help so far :thumbs:

posted by  chris_knows

like a hard plastic or metal lining around the hole, just to smooth out the hole, not tight around the axle, but not so loose that it wobbles
i assume your running them on a hard surface, otherwise you might want wider wheels

posted by  dvdrose18

Gotcha...I'll look around for them. We are doing it on a hard surface (tile), but I forgot to ask whether elastic bands would help and whether to use them only on the rear or not.

they would help if you need extra traction, but if torque is low enough, they may not be necessary, but it wouldn't hurt. if there are bumps, like betwean the tiles, you might want bigger wheels, front and back, and a little more torque, also remember the oomph put out by the trap will decrease as it travels further, so you want to gear it to utilize the full travel of the trap, and you might not want to tie the tape to the spool, so once the spool unwinds, the tape will fall off, so it can coast freely.

posted by  dvdrose18

I'll let it coast freely at the end, but I'm wondering if rubber bands would add significant rotational mass and end up slowing it down.

posted by  chris_knows

i assume you've checked to make sure the mouse trap won't snap the audio tape, while still imparting enough force to drive your car?

I'm building it on the weekend, but I don't think it will...The car will probably weigh like 300g, and it won't go really fast, but I'll test it and use yarn instead.

Where it says "Audio Cassette Film"

That's actually going to be a long arm to pull the film.

posted by  chris_knows

i may be wrong here, but extra rotational mass may not be all that bad, because it is not lost energy like friction, it will increase the rotational inertia, making it harder to get it turning but keep it coasting longer. but i guess you might have to gear it down a little, which could potentialy reduce the range a little i guess, not 100% sure.

posted by  What

i said that i was an ex physics major to show that i had an interest in physics, not to say i knew everything about physics. I showed my uncertanty so that someone who might know better can correct me without bashing me for asserting somthing incorrect as fact. i like to be able to think logicaly through things, not to memorize the answer to every question. i was trying to show that that was how i understood it, and my understanding has been wrong before. I'm not trying to start an argument, just trying to clarify.

posted by  dvdrose18

I'm thinking of using balloons instead of rubber bands for grip. I've heard of other people using them without good results.

posted by  chris_knows

I would imagine the trick is to keep the mass down, slip eliminated and friction to a minimum. So the least number of wheels the better, the slower the release of energy the better.

It would be interesting to see if you spooled the string on a tapered drum, whether it would maintain a constant speed; you would need an idler or grooves to stop the string unfurling to the small radius.

posted by  Wally

Thanks for the input, Wally...I'll use the biggest spool possible, but probably not tapered, although I might try it with a tapered drum after the project, just to see what will happen though.

posted by  chris_knows

Not into torque convertors?

posted by  Wally

Would that be the idler pulley? Would it be easier to get the best ratio so that the mousetrap releases its energy slowest?

It's awkward.

Awkward.

Unless I'm buying something from a person I met on the internet, I have no desire to talk to any them. And you have an idea that Bronxie finds you attractive.

What type of respect do you have for your boyfriend...I mean FIANCE? Jesus Christ, your boyfriend...fiance must not know he has a woman who is blindly inviting problems into the relationship.

You younger people, I swear. Always trying to hold on to the independence no one is trying to take away from you.

If you expect your MARRIAGE to work, you better RESPECT your husband by not initiating or reciprocating a continued friendship with guys who are openly sexually interested in you.

You are screaming insecurity...how unattractive is that. You aren't ready to be married. You desire too much attention from others...or maybe your man ain't doin' it right.


Tell your fiance you talk on the phone with a guy who thinks you're hot and see how he responds.

The only computers i have ever had were built by my dad, if you build it proper it could last for probably 2-3 years max for top of the line games, what do you plan on playing or are playing now? the thing you have to realize it there wont be a 24/7 tech line to help you trouble shoot all the bugs, ive never had one that worked perfect from day one but damnt they were fast and cheap, so make sure you have some wicked computer knowledge or wicked research skills to trouble shoot yourself.

There are plenty of books and stuff that show how to do it, but I'll make sure I have some more resources before starting.

The games out now that I want to play are like Splinter Cell: Double Agent, and Rainbow Six: Vegas...Mostly first-person shooter games, but also some racing games and stuff too. I'll really have to think it over whether to build it or not, because +$2,000 for a computer seems like a waste of money, but if it's going to last for a while, it doesn't seem that bad lol.

if you want hassle free your best bet is usally something prebuilt, and alienware makes some kick ass packages, get one built for extreme BF2 gaming and it should be able to play anything on the planet for at least a couple years.

I thought Alienware overpriced their stuff. I would buy one pre-built, but I can't find exactly what I want - for example 2 AMD FX-72 processors on the ASUS L1N64 nVidia nForce 680a motherboard, with a eVGA AR GeForce 8800GTX GPU. (Just throwing out random things) and most places don't offer those combinations. I'll definitely look at Alienware though, thanks :thumbs:

When you get a car, you're going to be asking yourself why you spent $2000+ on a computer and even more for upgrades and games when your old computer would have gotten you by. Maybe the average person wouldn't, but you seem like a car enthusiast. Unless your a computer guy as well, then I guess you'd ask yourself why you spend $2000 to make your car 1 second faster in the quarter mile when you could've gotten a nearly top-of-the-line computer.

posted by  giant016

I can't find the BF2 specific system, but the more time I spend on that website, the more I think those things look amazing and have great setups. I might get one from there instead of building.

EDIT: Just saw this
Yeah, that's a good point. I'll have to decide which to buy first. I won't really do too many upgrades to my car when I get it (almost definitely under $1,500)

About the Brits. I heard on the news that your schools were going to stop teaching about the Holocaust or Crusades because it might be offensive to Muslim students. I heard that at this rate, by 2050 Europe will be pretty much run by Islam. Sounds like a pretty serious situation.

I hate the way the world is today. A friend of mine told me last year that his son's school would not take his son to visit a church, but instead took the class to visit a Mosque. Now I have nothing against teaching children about different religions, but surely they should start with what most children see as religious?

The National Transportation Safety Board recently divulged they had covertly" funded a project with the U.S. automakers for the past 5 years, whereby the automakers were installing black-box voice recorders in 4-wheel drive pickup trucks and SUV's in an effort to determine in fatal accidents, the circumstances in the last 15 seconds before the crash.

They were surprised to find in 48 of the 50 states the recorded last words of drivers in 61.2 percent of fatal crashes were, "Oh Sh*t !"

Only Wisconsin, Iowa, Minnesota and the Upper Peninsula of Michigan were different, where 89.3 percent of the final words were: "Hold my beer, I'm gonna try somethin.":banghead:

A guy driving a Yugo pulls up at a stoplight next to a Rolls-Royce. The driver of the Yugo rolls down his window and shouts to the driver of the Rolls, "Hey, buddy, that's a nice car. You got a phone in your Rolls? I've got one in my Yugo!"

The driver of Rolls looks over and says simply, "Yes I have a phone."

The driver of the Yugo says, "Cool! Hey, you got a fridge in there too? I've got a fridge in the back seat of my Yugo!"

The driver of the Rolls, looking annoyed, says, "Yes, I have a refrigerator."

The driver of the Yugo says, "That's great, man! Hey, you got a TV in there, too? You know, I got a TV in the back seat of my Yugo!"

The driver of the Rolls, looking very annoyed by now, says, "Of course I have a television. A Rolls-Royce is the finest luxury car in the world!"

The driver of the Yugo says, "Very cool car! Hey, you got a bed in there, too? I got a bed in the back of my Yugo!" Upset that he did not have a bed, the driver of the Rolls-Royce sped away, and went straight to the dealer, where he promptly ordered that a bed be installed in the back of the Rolls.

The next morning, the driver of the Rolls picked up the car, and the bed looked superb, complete with silk sheets and brass trim. It was clearly a bed fit for a Rolls Royce.

So the driver of the Rolls begins searching for the Yugo, and he drove all day. Finally, late at night, he finds the Yugo parked, with all the windows fogged up from the inside. The driver of the Rolls got out and knocked on the Yugo.

When there wasn't any answer, he knocked and knocked, and eventually the owner stuck his head out, soaking wet. "I now have a bed in the back of my Rolls-Royce," the driver of the Rolls stated arrogantly.

The driver of the Yugo looked at him and said, "You got me out of the shower to tell me THIS?"

I think Imus should have been fired because of sponsors dropping ads from the show. If a person is losing you $, you gotta drop his ass. However, Obama calling for him to be fired is rediculous to me. This is AMERICA. Although not every word out of your mouth is protected by freedom of speech, Imus was expressing his opinion. If you're trying to be the president of the US, how can you go against one of our most important principals. I kind of liked Obama before this.


And for those brits that don't know who Imus is, he's a crappy radio host who called the Rutger's (college) women's Basketball team a bunch of knappy haired hoes.

Kinda sucks. Probably budget TV show?

Definitely not a budget show. I think they want to focus more on the characters rather than the cars. Although I heard that the episode last night had a 1970 Challenger, even though they call it a 1972.

Question: I started working out a couple of days ago (if you don't know why, check out any of the pics I've posted of myself lol), generally weight lifting (bench press, standing bar curls, dumbbell curls, etc) and sit ups, leg curls, etc., for about 45-60 minutes a day. How often should I be doing these? I've read like 3-4 times a week, but If I don't do them one day, I'll end up skipping a week before starting again. Basically, is it okay to exercise on a daily basis? Like will it slow down muscle growth?

BTW T_B, that would probably be so much fun lol...If I get the balls, I'd like to try that eventually lol.

posted by  chris_knows

the thing about muscles, the more you beat on them (sometimes literally) the more they will grow and become tougher

you might see a bowflex ad saying you only have to do it 3 times a week for 20 mins a day. but that is just to sell the product to fat lazy people

the truth is, you can work out every single day for an hour or more each day and the more burning you feel the more good you've done for yourself,

if you try flexing your muscles and it feels like mush. youve got the right idea :laughing: but really though, you cant hurt yourself from too much working out, besides random things like dropping a dumbbell :ohcrap:

thats how I do it anyway, im only 100 lbs too but I can bench that and a half

posted by  nighthawk

It's not about hurting myself, but which way is quicker lol...

100 lbs? I'm like 140 lol...But can only bench like 110.

posted by  chris_knows

basically the more it feels like you've worked out too much, the faster you will get bigger, because every time a muscle repairs itself, it becomes stronger than before, but only little by little. its not like you will feel much stronger after one week, but after maybe 3 months you might notice you can pick up much heavier things and other stuff like that ( or just notice the working out is getting easier lol)

and yeah, im only 100 lbs mainly because im only like 5 foot 2 lol

posted by  glagon1979

Nighthawk is wrong. You can over work yourself...but I doubt Chris Knows would reach that level. 5-6 days a week is ideal for max muscle growth. Your muscles need rest to grow.

People tear muscles from over working themselves, and some people, like distance runners, burn muscle from working out to much. There is a limit...we are human beings.

The best way to gain results is to EAT. Without lots of lean meat going into your body, you will grow slow or not at all. Eating is the hardest part for smaller guys.


By the way, I've got you all beat:
I'm 5'10 202 and I bench 355lb and squat 475. I'm a beast.

posted by  What

He'll come back? Why wait? You're 20...you shouldn't be wasting your time waiting for guys to "come back". You're setting yourself up for a desperate love-life. You are using your best dating years to wait for someone who doesn't want you. Don't be so stupid. Meet people damnit. Aren't you starting school soon? They'll be plenty people there to fuc...err...meet.

It's exciting to discover the differences between different mates. And eventually you'll find out how much your current boyfriend sucks and you'll narrow down the human traits that you really value in a man...and find a husband that suits you best.

I don't know much about you, but if I were to guess one thing about your life, you don't live with your father.


Tbaxleyjr, I don't know what year it was when you last dated around, but your advice sounds out-dated and you are giving way too much credit to these "kids". Sure, you can "force fit" the real reason behind the "break-up" into your reasoning...but come on...their 19.

From what I know, this is a short distance relationship turned long-distance. So why do I think he wants to end it? He's meeting new bitches with totally different personalities from SyntheticTrust...and the differences are turning him on. NEW BITCHES AWAY FROM MY GIRLFRIEND!!! That's like kryptonite for a 19 year old's relationship.

He doesn't need counseling, there isn't anything SyntheticTrust can give him that'll make him stay...he's just being 19. Can you blame him? He was going to get married...thus ENDING HIS ENTIRE DATING LIFE. That would've scared me into some new nooky too. I'm happy for the kid. I hope he is enjoying himself. This was the best thing for both of them. This would have been a failed marriage for sure.

SyntheticTrust doesn't need any "private couseling" tbaxleyjr. You're over reacting and over-respecting this thing. Don't dramatize this shit. This is a youthful occurence that definitely should have happened. Your private talks will do nothing more than lengthen the recovery time by making her reflect. She doesn't need reflection, she needs to bury this shit because it means nothing. She shouldn't remember this kid.


They'll both look back on this and cringe when they think about the engagement.

posted by  What

Yup. Pros generally take a day off a week to just rest. And even then, they only work a muscle as primary once a week. Although, with the colorado experiment, there were insane results with working out for something like twice a week for 40 minutes each.


It's not so much lean meat, but jsut getting a caloric excess through eating natural. If it's something that grows/lives on the earth, and it's untainted by mcdonaldized america, shove it in your mouth.


I'll bet you do :rolleyes:. E-stats are E-stats. We need to see a youtube video. Dieselweasel?

posted by  Godlaus

That's a horrible routine. Go look up Rippetoe's starting strength, Bill Starr's 5x5, or Joe DeFranco's Westside.

Then, start eating everything natural, and eat it even when you're not hungry. That's the idea of caloric excess.

You should be taking in 3000-3500 calories a day. Depending on who you ask, anywhere between 1g for 1kg of bodyweight, or 3x your bodyweight (lbs) in protein.

Try to stay away from un-natural carbs, and only use them for pre-workout and post-workout meals. And even then, try to keep the quantity down.

I highly suggest rippetoe's, and doing cardio on tuesday and thursday.

You can't just tell him to eat at random. When I was trying to grow, I ate every 3 hours...and I kept a watch on my wrist that beeped every 3 hours to remind myself.

Why should he stay away from "unnatural" carbs? If by "unnatural" you mean "nutritional supplements" like protein powders and creatine...getting 3x his body weight (grams-to-pounds) will be impossible through food alone. You NEED a protein powder to intake that much and still be able to move. But that much protein is too much for what I suspect he'll be doing. But even if he wants to ingest only his own body weight (in grams you dipshits) in protein per day, a powder would definitely help. That's a lot of meat, and measurement of a meat's protein isn't as accurate as something out of a bottle.


One of the best ways to beef up a skinny bastard like Chris is to get his family involved. They're probably disgusted of his womanly frame, and will be more than happy to encourage his growth with extra servings at the dinner table and reminders that he needs to work out. He should educate them on his intake "health" goals so they don't fry-food his ass to starscream0/Glagon-like lardness.


Couple months ago, I posted pics of myself. I was in the 190's then...BavarianWheels likened my body to a mannequin. Now I'm in the 200's; he'd call me a Greek God. Why would I lie.

I don't workout too seriously. As I said, like 45 minutes a day and pretty much Monday through Friday (haven't decided on Saturdays yet).

So I should eat only or almost only fruit and vegetables? What about meat?
I can't find much on Mark Ripptoe's, Bill Starr's or Joe Defranco's workout routines, but I'll be sure to find them. Do fruits and vegetables have lots of calories? The protein brings up another question. Should I take whey or is that for more serious lifters?

Would biking like 3 times a week (like an hour each time) count as sufficient cardio?

So I need to eat natural food on a schedule? I'm wondering how to gain more weight actually...I eat what I want, when I want, but it doesn't do anything. My parents know I've started working out, but I'm still pretty motivated to ask them to remind me.

BTW I think you guys might be going to far with this...All I want is some more muscle...Not to enter competitions...Just, you know...Impress some girls lol.

All input's greatly appreciated, thanks everyone :thumbs:.

F*ck that "natural food" bullshit. No one knows what he's talking about. Meat is necessary. Whey protein is the best protein...this month according to research. I say "this month" because the experts change their mind so fast. I remember there was a time when experts "discovered" that water and milk were bad.

Eating what you want when you want is not good enough because you probably aren't eating enough. Eat on a schedule...you will realise how much you didn't eat.


I don't know where Godlaus gets his info, but how much does he weigh? I think I have more experience in gaining weight then that sucker.

I wouldn't follow someone elses workout routine...here is a good website that'll give you some workout ideas.

Biking is great cardio if you're biking HARD.

I think her ex clarified that already. If anything, you confused her and others on this forum by possibly placing some blame on SyntheticTrust with this statement...

Whatever you meant by this, I can tell you that you've tainted the boyfriend's crystal clear message.


I agree on this statement, but that wasn't a message I was trying to communicate in my post.
Distance between them stimulated the almost inevitable between these two engaged 19 year olds: A break up.


I don't believe you are encouraging this young person to wait on this young man.

Call it counseling or call it a "private talk", but I call it unnecessary attention to a subject that should be forgotten as fast as possible. I'd rather see you PM Chris_Knows on his struggle to gain weight. Your "encouraging" PM to her has added to the drama...believe it or not.



This sounds like political jargon to win the crowd away from me. Paint me as a barbarian with no respect for anything...you as this wise man who values love. How could they "side" with me?

Don't trick these kids out of my message.

Yeah, I couldn't stick to a no meat diet, but certainly it's healthier to eat pork chops (or some home-made meal) would be better than McDonalds. So should I go with a protein booster or just stick to regular meals?

I need some sort of routine, and those have been proven. That website gives lots of info and reading materials. Thanks :thumbs:.

I've dated several people and was observant of their personality traits. Certain things in a women's life shape the way a woman behaves...family being a major one. Through your posts, (the relationship ones in particular) I've noticed that you have traits similar to women I've dated that don't live with their father. That's not your only trait...I've experienced several women with most if not all of your traits. I can probably guess your life and guess your reactions in a relationship.

If you dated me...I'd be your nightmare...or your savior?

But I don't know everything, and everyone has a few surprises...but you seem like a push-over. I don't date push-overs...I do "stick" them. But stickin' alone doesn't crush women...so you'd avoid the nightmare...or unfortunately...the savior....???



I'm so good at women.
.............

It makes little sense to make someone promise to be faithful...let alone be surprised if he breaks that promise.

BUT YOU PROMISED!

Well, I didn't know I was going to cheat.<----I used to tell them. Now-a-days, I handle this much differently.

But ya boy is young, he will lie to you. Seriously, it is like retarded of you to ask for such a retarded "promise". A growing relationship should have expectations, not promises. And if he is cheating and you find out...don't focus on the f*cking promise....BUT YOU PROMISED!!!....I used to laugh in the dorm room hallway at those arguments.

Don't ask your next boyfriend to promise anything about the relationship. Tell him what you EXPECT. You will jump the relationship 3 years in maturity by doing so.


And how does your "2-weeks notice" relate to your boyfriend? Were you moving with him? Was he going to pay you what your job payed you? If he wasn't, then either way you're coming up short on money. Nothing's changed. Maybe I'm being an ass, or maybe I'm being realistic.

I always suggest protein because it is so hard and expensive to get a good dosage of protein from table food.

As far as protein powders go, I personally use IsoPure Zero Carb Whey protein isolate...50 grams of protein per serving...25 per scoop. It comes in a gray bottle. But it's kinda of expensive...for a kid: $51.99 from the GNC in The Mall of Louisiana. GNC has a store brand that's cheaper and probably just as effective, but it tastes like gag-reflex.

If you really want to be like me, get the Mango-Peach flavor and mix it with Tropicana Orange juice from a 64 oz bottle with lots of pulp.

If you have to stick to food only, I'd suggest eating Tilapia fish. It is a very cheap fish that tastes good (to me) and it has the highest protein-dosage per pound than any food I can think of.

posted by  What

I don't want to spend too much money unless it makes a difference, but isn't protein protein? Like don't you get the same amount of protein from something that costs $20 and something that's $50?

I eat tilapia probably like every one or two weeks.

There is no use for you to buy the $50 stuff I use. Yes there are slight differences...allegedly. But you should be fine with some $20 stuff. If you decide to buy this stuff, don't let the gym geeks at the counter talk you into anything besides cheap whey protein.

I buy the $50 stuff mostly for the taste and I have better "digesting experiences" with it.

I can put up with the taste, but I want to remain regular lol...I'll do some research before buying it I guess.

Got out of class today.. Both right side tires FLAT... SPENT THREE HOURS TO GET NEW TIRES AT THE DEALERSHIP.. THREE HOURS!!!!!!!! and freaking $900 bucks.

least the guy at the dealership added me on myspace lol

posted by  SyntheticTrust

What the hell are you driving on?! I felt crazy for spending $200 per tire. I don't even think I've seen tires for over $400. Honestly, they charge $10 to mount a tire around here, and they'll even bolt it on for you for free. Please tell me that there was something alse on the bill. 3 hours?

posted by  giant016

Tires were 189 a piece
15 per tire to mount
89 for an alignment check


The tires are called bridgestone ... runflat tires my ass.


I officially hate cars... and interstates with screws lying around..

Yea, beacuse two ofte puncture or blowout at the same time, lol. It's a space thing, I mean, you're lucky to even get a full sized spare these days! Usually you have to make do with either a tube of foam or a pace saver, lol....I recon a good 'ol ful sized spare is the way to go!

not tryin to sound like some rebel hardass teenager, but honeslty who waits till they're 21 to drink. im not gonna lie i drink, most of the times its with my parents, does it make them bad parents? no, not at all. they know its gonna happen so in an attempt to keep me from drinking an driving, they dont care if i drink around them, they've seen me drunker then ive ever been, an instead of yelling at me they sat back an said damn hes gonna feel like shit in the morning, an if im goin out to a buddies to drink i tell them an then i jus sleep in my truck cause they trust me enough to do that, but just my 2 cents

posted by  hhsrastler92

I never drank until I was 21. Perhaps I was just brought up differently. I still won't drink and drive EVER. Regardless if I have had only one drink.

posted by  97Talonchik

the sad reality is... that people do it.. and believe that they're invincible, and yet, while you do the right thing, it doesn't entirely save you from the effects of drunk drivers. I will have a couple of beers then drive, but only if I'm confident that I'd be under the limit if i were pulled over. That seems to be a pretty good guide. I've never felt that I was not in control of my actions behind the wheel because of alcohol.... and it also means I won't lose my licence because of stupidity :wink2:

posted by  windsonian

Meh, my :2cents: is that if you're gonna drink, just do it in moderation.

posted by  99integra

I think our age of drinking should be increased to something like yours is in the US. 18 is too young in my opinion. Having said that, would it make any difference? Sure it would make the pubs and clubs better places I'm sure, but what about anti-social behaviour on the streets? I believe our sentences for Drink Driving are similar to those that you mention, tbax, although Prison isn't really used as a punishment....probably due to the lack of space.

posted by  Cliffy

I thought I'd Copy/Paste the following from the thread I started about things that annoy you about driving, to here as a way of keeping that one reasonably 'On-Topic'.





I don't agree with us being a Politically Correct nation, but because that's how I've always known it (in recent years it's become alot more so, granted), I tend to agree that hurling racist abuse isn't acceptable. Freedom of speach is a great thing to have, but people can use it all too often as justification for their actions, which I believe is wrong.

Regarding our smoking ban, I agree with that to an extent. I see what you're saying, and I too believe that;

A) if taking in secondhand smoke is that important to you, you don't go to the Pub

and

B) Landlords/ladies should have the right to chose whether or not their establisment becomes a smoke-free one!

I also don't agree with what Rail companies are doing and having no smoking on platforms, as it's in the open. I can see why it's like that, and that at least this way people can't play the ignorant "I didn't know....blah blah blah". I don't smoke, so I don't see why I should have to take in second hand smoke just because I happen to be walking through a shopping centre (mall?) behind a smoker. In my opinion though, drinking in public would have been banned first, for obviously different reasons, but important ones nonetheless :2cents:

I grew up in Belle Chasse right behind the highschool off BC HWY. But now I'm living in the Slidell area.. BC isnt that far from the dell. about 30 mins if there's no traffic over the High Rise or on the damn Twin Span now that they close one lane every day for hours.. Cant wait for the new bridge to be finished in like 2010.. I hear it's suppossed to be a 4 laner. That will be awesome... What city are you from? If you dont want to say it over the net, what city are you closest to? If you're 5 minutes from Belle Chasse, you're about 15 from New Orleans, we are going to Bourbon tonight. I'm easy to find. Come hang out.

posted by  SyntheticTrust

I grew up in Gretna; I don't know if you're familiar with StoneBridge. I go back home like every week, but I currently live in Baton Rouge. Oh, it's so boring. 2:00 a.m. curfews, no alcohol after like 12, and no walking from hangout to hangout ala New Orleans. It's occasionally fun up here, but for real fun I go home.

I don't think you or your friends could handle the energy of me and my crew. We tear it down. But if I ever see you on Bourbon, I'll call you out, and watch you blush. Just don't take my picture.

My sister is living in Gretna now.. withher booty call of the month... Have you ever had Antiones?

posted by  SyntheticTrust

As in the super-gourmet pastry place? Yes, I've had it. Too much of it. Every women in my family loves their stuff. I, however, find it a little too gourmet. A little too much sugar, too much icing, too much filling...etc. It's a good place to bring out-of-towners to try pastries they can't finish though.

The real truth behind my distaste for Antiones is because I was forced to eat their or some other imitation King Cake for years after Mckenzies went out of business. I liked the plain King Cakes and donuts from Mckenzies, but I'm forced to indulge the sh*t from Winn Dixie or other poo grocery stores, or some super cheese cake deluxe, cinnamon filled, russian cake flavored QUEEN cake from Antiones. The sh*t is so dense and heavy it's ridiculous. But my mother loves it. I like it somedays too...I admit.


I don't go to Bourbon clubs as much as I used to, but I do still go to them...so maybe one day we'll randomly meet and have wild sex. I just hope you don't fall in love.

posted by  What

Doesn't Antoine's have a full menu too? I think that is where I went a couple of years ago when I was in town for a wedding. We got brunch there and I remember the drinks being great. ...maybe that's what made the meal so great for me too! Gretna's a great area. I have family living there.

posted by  boothe

Yeah, they are a bit heavy on the icing..and it's too sticky from all the sugar at the bottom. I just eat the top.. I can NEVER finish my king cake. Good though.. I LOVE McKenzie's!!!! SOOOOOOO good. You know honestly... I've never had a Queen cake.. In all my years... never bought one.. Next Mardi Gras I will.

Now about this bourbon thing.. I'll PM you my cell number and we'll definetly have to meet up and party when you feel like it.. The falling in love? Nope... I'm done with love... The wild sex? hmmmm lol

I exchanged those valve covers the day after I took that picture. I didn't like the oil filler cap on those...it was difficult to remove and install. I have black valve covers now with "Cobra" written on it.

The 5-speed manual transmission is stock.

I've pretty much redone the entire engine: Upgraded the block, increased displacement from 302 to 347 ci, aluminum heads, different cam, different intake, upgraded fuel system, upgraded exhaust...etc.

All my money bought me 365 rwhp and 402 lb-ft tq


Nothing major done to the suspension besides replacing worn parts with newer parts. I'll be lowering it soon though.

I'm re-doing the interior in August during my vacation. Everything inside will be black. I'll post pics if I'm not banned by then.

I have returned to inform everyone that I have traded in my beautiful Porsche Boxster for my dream car... a Lotus Elise.


The better news is that it the insurance and registration are both in my name.



I do not have it yet. I am fedexing my credit application tomorrow and Monday they will overnight the dealer the check. The car is prepped and awaiting its new owner's arrival.


If you wish to see the car, it is here.

I cannot express how elated I am. Thank you everyone here for changing my outlook on cars and opening my mind to new possibilities. If not for the users here, I would likely still be stuck on luxury sedans.

Congrats man! The last autoX I went to there were 3 Lotus' (Lutusi? What's the plural?) and they did quite well, and looked good doing so. Is it true that if you're foot is over a size 10 it won't fit/shifting is a problem?

posted by  giant016

I wear size 14s and I do everything fine. When I first drove a Lotus, I wore 16s.


So no .. definitely a tall tale. A Lotus is only hard to get into. After that, it's perfectly comfy.


You're welcome to drive it.

Wanna teach me to drive stick? None of my friends/parents have manuals so I never got to learn.:banghead:

I wouldnt expect the mighty "what" to drive a mustang that looks like this

I dont mean any offense but the headlight covers threw me off a bit


EDIT, congrats bronxie. id love to be able to drive something like that lol

posted by  nighthawk

Appearance is nothing, performance is everything...for now.

The headlight covers were there when I purchased the car, and as you can see, I haven't done any exterior (or interior) mods since I've purchased the vehicle. I've barely driven it.

The headlight covers and other things will come off when I start to care about the way it looks. If it makes you feel better, I have a pretty Lexus as my real driver.


It probably does make the Corvette feel a bit heavy. But we both know which one is really quicker/faster. Have fun with your less-comfortable-than-a-Corvette-Elise. How long do you plan to keep this car?

australian-guy-whose-name-I-forgot: Losing weight = losing shoe sizes


What: It's all about how you feel when you drive it. Statistics only go so far !!! I plan to keep it for at least 3 years and sometime in that period I would like to buy a used '03+ Viper.

The consensus from Lotus owners is that the Elise isn't the fastest (on a track) but it is certainly the most gratifying when you get it right.


97talonchik: That seems to be everyone's qualm with the Lotus. But do you buy a sports car for practicality? Drive for pleasure :D

posted by  Car hippie

wow.... filling out your shoes with fat? my shoe sizes tend to be dictated by the length of the bones in my feet.

posted by  windsonian

Yah but alot of times statistics win races
Im pretty sure every elise driver Ive talked to told me they have a ton of reliablity issues as most if the car is held together with glue. They say alot of stuff just breaks and falls apart and it isnt very good for anything but a track only car.

posted by  Enthusiast

I spend most of my online time on the Elise forums...I know what the issues are, if any. Like you said, if anything happens, it's minor cosmetic issues. Nothing serious. The chassis, drivetrain and transmission are rock solid.


People who say it's only good as a track car aren't cut out to own one anyhow...they would be excluded from this niche.



I don't care about winning races. It's about fun. :) Besides, the only racing I do is autocrossing and I can't think of a better car for it than the Elise, minus kit cars.




australian-dude: That happens to everyone and anyone who loses weight. Your feet just shrink for some reason. It can be from fat but also from muscle deterioration which I have experienced a lot of lately ... much to my dismay.

posted by  Car hippie

are you sure about the weight thing, i lose around 15-25lbs from november to march and my feet change in no way at all?

I wish there was some way Lotus could repair their relationships with Honda and use a K20a engine.


It is about 70 lbs lighter, more torque due to higher displacement, high revving and very powerful.

More like boo to douchebags who don't watch where they are going and then don't stop when they see a car flying towards the curb.

I'm just glad I didn't hit any people or cars.

posted by  newyorker

Been there man. The guy who hit my Z didn't have any insurance so we set up a payment plan. Well, he never answered my calls and then about...oh, 2 weeks ago or so he got arrested for disorderly conduct and resisting arrest. Looks like I'm not getting any money anytime soon...BTW, court paperwork is being filled out and processed...

posted by  Satty101

I take it your insurance will cover it? :doh:

posted by  Cliffy

Of course not, limited coverage is FTW!

I've had the car for 7 months, I pay 150 a month for limited and comprehensive, to add colission (which would have covered this) would bump that to 300 a month. That's 150x7 that I would have paid a.k.a 1050. All of the parts for the repair (including new baller wheels) are going to cost me...700-800 and a few days of wrench turning...and I won't have to deal with raised rates. I win!

To boot, I have a 30% surcharge for an accident that was 3 years ago, which is coming off in a few months so I will be paying I think 112 a month instead.

posted by  newyorker

It used to be like tyhat over here, but now, certainly with my insurance, Fully Comprehensive cover (the best you can get), tends to cost less than Third Party fire & theft (what it says on the tin basically...).

posted by  Cliffy

I run full coverage on everything but my Berettas and my wife's Daytona Turbo Z. We run theft and liability on those.

posted by  Satty101

Yea, I've never had full coverage, mostly because of the price difference and it not making sense in the end. At least some good came out of this, instead of sticking with stock wheels I decided to upgrade. Preview

Also, try not to shoot off of the ground, there's way too much pavement in a few of those.

To be honest, this shoot was mostly just HDR experiementation, probalby should have mentioned that. The only tripod I had was this little dinky thing, had to borrow my friend's for the S2K picture.

As for the "wall through the car", not bothering me too awefully much, but to each his own. Also, the way the parking garage was oriented made it pretty much impossible to get rid of this completely and still get the clouds in the background, whcih was something I wanted to do for the whole HDR thing.

moar srs shoot to come...eventually.

Nothing wrong with that at all! No, you're not an idiot because of that...what you're an "idiot" about is that you don't realize the good suggestion and how it apparently is annoying to some and if those that find it annoying saw that you made a thread about your stuff, then they'd be able to avoid your stuff and you would have a lot less negativism towards you. I think (was it nighthawk and Corbett?) the suggestion of a dedicated thread was great. You just took offense to it and you shouldn't have.

I've liked some of your photos...but the sheer number of the same subject gets eye-rolling sometimes. Now if we allowed more risque pics...then the subject matter would be welcome over and over and over. :)

End of February anyone? Ha well not that anyone cares but in November I will be starting a 6 month tour to Afghanistan. Which means another Thanksgiving, Christmas a New Years away from home. So to recap I haven't had a family holiday since my Jr. year in high school. Which doesn't both me because of recent events in my family.

In a completely related subject I could use some outside input from you guys. Seeing as I am a college student with full paid tuition an many people wish they had that opportunity without signing the paperwork that I did, I don't want to go anymore. I would rather be a "Guard Bum" an work at the base an go on jobs rather then go to college. My parents really want me to finish college but I'm just not into it. So what do you guys think I should do? Suck it up an finish college, or do as I want an become a "Guard Bum"?

Do what makes you happy, but think about your future, are you going to want to be a "Guard Bum" the rest of your working life? What do you think you'll want to be doing in 10 years? 20 years?

You have some years yet to decide, you can always continue college at a later date, if you want. Working in the armed forces will also gain you a ton of useful skills you can use in future jobs as well. It's your choice.

Well the thing about being a "Guard Bum" is that it leads to getting better install jobs going to see other parts of the world. So in a sense it is something that I've always wanted to do.

I also agree with the do what makes you happy. Drop out of school until you find a major that really interests you. I ended up with two degrees in the process of figuring it all out. 2 year auto body degree and an Electronic engineering degree.

What's a "Guard Bum"?

Do what makes you happy, bear in mind that qualifications aren't everything, and you could go on to get a great career with life experience alone, lol.

Well I decided to withdraw from classes yesterday, so now I'm "Guard Bumming" an the definition of "Guard Bum" is someone who rather then getting a job, gets put on military orders an works at the base, this also includes going on local install jobs throughout the week. I was a networking major working on my CCNA, and also am only a few classes short of an associates in electronic engineering. I mean this college thing just isn't working out for me right now, an it's not like it expires I mean.

since this forum works on one post per day per forum I'll post some slightly related info.

I've been doing an AST course (automotive service tech.) at a college of the north atlantic about 3mins away from home since september and well, if you know how long an apprenticeship takes that's about what I have ahead of me and I'm also one of the many people who question their future daily.

Turns out I'm really not the mechanic type and even things like ****ing around looking for the right size socket are wearing me out. I'd like to try automotive journalism but I know my writing isn't good enough to make anything of it. In fact I'd like to try lots of different things I just don't know If I'd be any good. Guidance councellors give me websites to check out and questionaire's to fill out but they're all too broad. does anyone know a way to find a huge list with pretty much every car related profession all in one place? because thet's the point I'm at right now.

I just need to step back and see what I might enjoy doing or what I might be good at but as far as I can see now there are only a few key areas when it comes to automotive careers. (building them,selling them,fixing them,driving them) I really don't know what else is available in the least.

I just pulled a pair of 86(?) Cadillac Brougham horns out of one in our junkyard for a classic Caddy sound on my truck. $8 for them :mrgreen:

I went to the Zytek factory today!! Its a fine example of high quality engineering in the motorsport sector - the sound of a flat plane v8 revving to 9500rpm on an engine dyno whilst being in the same room really blows your ear off. Only yours for £80,000!!
