    Why am I incapable of listening to Alabama at a low volume? I'm not like that with any other music, not even metal, but If anything from Alabama is playing, It has to be trying to blow the speakers out.

    If I'm listening to Alabama, so is everyone in a 300 yd radius.

    Just make sure to be blaring "Summer of 69" at the same time, so the songs blend... :whistle:

    Are torx bits used more now because they're more easily manufactured than Allen head bolts?

    Torx can be made simply with a small end mill as to where Allen heads would need rotary broached

    It's 4 AM, I'm awake and I got hungry, I go look in the cabinet, and find a can of "Stagg" brand Chili, "Silverado Beef" On the bottom of the can it's stamped "Product of the UK"

    Hmm, British Chili.



    It's good. strangely sweet though.

    So the silver Dodge has a had a come-and-go vibration coming from somewhere since I bought it, I've never been able to find the cause, it's not wheels/tires, brakes, driveshafts, wheel bearings, I have no idea.
    Today I was on the interstate coming home around 75-80, started around a slight bend in the road, the vibration started like it usually does. then suddenly the truck felt like it bucked up into the air, and suddenly the vibration is totally gone.

    I've got no idea what happened, I couldn't find anything loose, broke, recently moved, or any weights thrown off.

    Not sure what happened, but it fixed itself.

    Today has been eventful, A day off, how nice.

    9:00 AM, I'm over at a buddy's house. (A fellow Dodge-ist) Who back in January bought a 96 half ton 4wd Dodge for $300 for it as it had a crappy flat black rattle can paint job on top 9 tons of bondo, and a tree fell on it and caved in the roof right above the driver's seat.
    He bought it for the trans, but after having it sitting in his yard for a couple months has convinced him to build it, just get it ready for mudfest next weekend, then start building to the moon after that.

    Today we put another trans in it, I traded him a set of Courser M/T mud tires for the brand new street tires that were on it, we jacked the roof back up where it belongs, and cut the top of the door frames off, so they'd close.

    Then around 1:00, I get home, and talk to another friend of mine, and then immediately get Tom Sawyer-ed into waxing his car, 4 hours later it's clean,

    Now I'm trying to find something worthwhile to watch on Netflix.

    why is it when I attempt to save a few bucks by rebuilding a part, it only costs me time, as I end up replacing the part anyway?

    We'll need a new food thread.


    On a completely unrelated note, Sony apparently doesn't care if you don't pay for Playstation plus anymore, seeing as how mine expired two days ago, and I just loaded up Grand Theft Auto and went straight into multiplayer like nothing happened.

    And something else, else, Remember that onboard air compressor I ordered on the 11th and a bit later I got that Engrish email about? I've finally received a tracking number, and it told me it has finally arrived!


    In Hong Kong.

    Probably my favorite tough guy back talk from movies and tv is from supernatural

    Castiel- you're nothing but a fly swatter!
    Death- destine to swat you I think.

    Supernatural is freaking awesome if you haven't watched it

    I've never watched Supernatural, though I've been told I'd like it, I love Doctor Who, so maybe I might, I've just never sat down and watched it.

    Yeah supernatural is probably my favorite tv series now. It's all on Netflix if you have that.

    That show was always good for keeping the spank bank full. Or drained, depending on your perspective.
