T'ain't.

Post Office f#$%ed me for the eleventy fifth time. Somehow when they got to the part where I put "0" for dependents, they read and inputted it as "6". Was expecting about $3k back, ended up paying that much. Decided then and there to be thankful I had the savings, spare myself the agony, and set a realistic date of '19 to actually enjoy myself for once. Go fishing, be a dad, camp a bit, and wrench for fun instead of a job.

Truck itself I ain't even barely drive. RF and LR calipers are both hangin', and I just haven't had it in me to tear it apart yet. Hell, it snowed like a bastard just last morning. So, not like I really have the financial liberty to choose otherwise, but it seems like a solid start is in order. Forget the past, take the present, and start anew. Get some new brakes for the rig at my leisure, get some on the trailer, and simply have an upgraded roller, which I still currently have the savings to do, by Fall. Then it's just 6 months to get a motor, and all that entails should be cake, right?

Right? =p

I dunno, man. It all came so easy that first year. But after the pain of the last two, and with my kid being even more amped for fishing and my cousin / partner in crime acquiring a new, badass wheeler, it seems a more balanced summer is required, and kinda desperately needed. I work and have worked too goddamn hard for not a lick of leisure. Two ATV races and half a vacation a year just ain't cuttin it lol.

The space between the anus and
the scrotum. Your point?

I always thought that was a gender specific term EB. Not male.

It's not a real word, does it matter?

It is a real word but the definition you and I were talking about only shows up as slang in informal online dictionaries. Most of them though do say that it is not gender specific however.

I meant the definition as I used it
is not in a real dictionary. It's
a made up definition for slang
purposes.

Formula 3 driver goes airborne @ 170+ mph during Macau Grand Prix.
Sophia Floersch is only 17, and damaged her spine in the crash.

Crazy video, only shows the car airborne, like a cruise missile slamming in the second story of a building behind a media pen. It's frightening how fast she was going.

Saw from slightly different angle, looking down that exiting straight. Never saw it coming, and couldn't really see it when it did. Insane the speed she still had. Never expected it with how slow everyone else was.

Heard it was a loss of wheel that caused it. Would explain the seeming nonexistence of deceleration. If you're at 170 when everyone else is at 45,.... there's not a driver bad enough to make that mistake. And to hit top first, of all places...

Eesh.
