    I know the Porsches don’t quite turn heads the way the Ferraris and Lambos and McLarens do, but they are absolutely beautiful cars.

    They don't photo near as well as they look in person.  I don't know why.  Maybe you could get a grant to study that?  I'll help.

    Ah yes, I believe the Human Fund supports work like that.

    Two other cars that don't photo near as well as they look in person (and that I nearly purchased, both of them) are the Jaguar F-Type (into which I couldn't even fit my 13.5 shoe):
     

     
    and the gorgeous BMW Z4 (shoes fit, legs didn't):

    That’s one car that doesn’t look anywhere near as good as a convertible.

    Lol, I completely missed the reference!  

    I did get my first middle finger today.  Old man in his honda CRV who couldn't figure out what lane he wanted to be in.  I waited till he was at the apex of one of his swerves and then I gently rolled into it.  I passed him at a healthy clip.  Apparently this offended him.  I did a u-turn a few miles down and then on the way back I passed him.  He gave me a vigorous middle finger.

    I used to blow kisses.  Watching a grown man so angry he is shaking the car, waving his arms, and screaming is hilarious.

    Unfortunately, I've had a few guns, a knife, and a pipe pulled on me.  That takes some of the chuckles out of a situation.

    You haven’t seen someone truly angry until they’ve thrown their own poop at you.  Trust me on this one.  It’s road rage, Mad Max level.

    My sister Beulah could throw her poop without using her hands, and if she was naked they could go pretty far, if she was in her jammies though, they would peak about four inches from her bum, and then slowly tumble into one of her socks. 

    When Beulah gets angry, I refuse to do her laundry.

    This reminds me of my friend getting super angry at us when he was joy riding his Dad's station wagon when he was 14-15 years old. My buddy stole his Dad's station wagon when he was on vacation. His Dad's vehicle was parked in my other friends parents driveway one day when we took my other friends dog out to do his business. After his dog dropped a steamer we thought it would be funny to stick it in our friends Dad's vehicle being the middle of summer with the windows up. My buddy who was joy ridding his Dad's car was inside the house who clueless about what was going on. It was hours later when he went to leave he opened up the doors of his Dad's vehicle to only get slapped in the face with a stench of a big fat deuce cooking away in the rear trunk of his Dad's station wagon. Oh man was he ticked but we all could hardly contain ourselves from laughing. Not only did he have to sneak his Dad's vehicle back home before his Dad's girlfriend would stop over and check up on him he now had to find a way to air out the car. His Dad was a smoker so it wasn't some odorless vehicle from the start but it did take a few afternoons to air out in the driveway. To be young and dumb....

    They are pretty amazing little machines.  These are owned by a client who refurbishes/rebuilds them.

    this one was in for boiler tubes, new fire box, and the steam controlled brake rebuild. was originally coal fired but changed over to propane. used at the local amusement park. i think this one was built 1927. also worked on the old mt washington cogs, used to put new rivets in until they updated to newer gas models. i think they are down to one coalfire, thats the one to book for a nh trip way in advance
