Unit three thousand twenty one is warning Makes a humming sound - when its circuits Duplicate emotions
Sorry about the lack of blogupdate, I suck. I'll try to stay more on top of it, but more riding+more work=more tired.
I haven't updated since Gloucester, but I did take a whole bunch of pictures there. That full album can be found here. (Kevin Sweeney pictured here)
A couple more cross races have reminded me why I like that the inside of my car is all plastic, and Dan the mechanic has fixed the Spooky (undoing my screw-ups), so it's running like a champ. Today's race, which was pretty rutted and dry proved to me that I still don't totally know what tire pressure I should be running.
A bunch of people went out to get sushi with Todd. He's going to TX. I ate a boat. Have fun Todd.
I unfortunately don't have the video to back it up (still don't have one of these) but it seems as though the cars of Newton are unable to completely stop. They roll into intersections, streets, rotaries, and mailboxes to a comical extent, theory being that the opponent (traffic with the right of way) has no choice but to stop. The instigator then stops in the way of both perpendicular traffic and those behind, letting everyone absorb the absurdity of it all, Hand gestures are undertaken and the dance is complete.
On the topic of Newton driving, Volvo has brought to market the logical conclusion of the trend toward eliminating driver involvement. While in a general sense I would consider this a bad thing, given the type of driver that tends to gravitate toward Volvo (specifically Volvo SUV) ownership, I prefer robotic involvement.
Jesse's out in Cali, but I haven't heard from him, so I assume...
I had some fun with long exposure shots.
I saw another cool application of VW/Audi/Porsche's compatible BCDs
I learned about one more of Bryan's talents.
This week's video is a collection of outtakes from a Saturn commercial Jim Gaffigan did way back in the 90s.
