In a sense, the dealers are right - they don't want you to haggle. They want you to bend over and take it. »
I think it's a realistic test. Imagine pulling from off the street onto an icy driveway. That'd be almost exactly like this.
One of the craziest situations I've seen was when I was probably close to 20 years ago when I was in Scouts. Our Scout meetings were in a building at the bottom of a hill. During our… »
I don't think that's shameful. I was actually unaware they offered that new of a Civic Hybrid. (I knew they had one back in 2003 or so, but hadn't heard much since then). »
I know I'm way late to the party, but you might want to check out Scratch or ALICE. Both offer a bit of a different approach to teaching programming. »
Funny you mention band saws. A little while back I was having some issues with my little 10" Rikon band saw. It's been pretty good to me, but I probably push it a bit hard. (Prior to getting my scary-as-heck table saw, I was using it to rip pieces of 2x4, that sort of thing). A while back it snapped a blade, so I… »

I have a strange desire to take a Mustang like that and stuff a 3-cylinder Ecoboost in it. Just to mess with those people who think a muscle car must have 8 cylinders. »
Nice! I'm glad to hear that you're having fun with the car, as that's what it's all about.
It doesn't matter whether you're driving a clapped out rust bucket of a Mazda 323 hatchback or a Gallardo, I really think the spirit of the Jalop is about having fun on wheels. And I'd say you've nailed it. Thank you for… »
