    I was going to edit so the last line is "we're selling rebadged prebuilts at a high profit" but i deleted the fonts from Gimp so it would actually load :(. Anybody who has "gamer" as one of the main parts of their identity needs to check themselves before they wreck themselves.

    Also if you for some reason still havent gotten a SSD, do it. Its insane at how fast a bloated OS like windows is on a "slow" SSD like the 850 EVO i bought for christmas.

    Why the ending to NFS payback is fail: ArkWright.

    The scene in game that is the "ending"

    ArkWright

    That's NFS HP 2010
    The plot of NFS payback was so The Gambler could work at a convenience store.

    NFS titles after ProStreet is so (mostly) badly made. No, even HP 2010 is not that great, I still prefer NFS III: HP or NFS HP2 over it.

    I have a obvious idea...
    Make USPS/UPS cars available for the public.


    Not only are they good for other commercial companies, it would make a good drag car... seriously. Also, UPS delivery trucks have more cargo space than a passenger van.

    I've seen LLVs on auction before, and with their retirement coming up they're probably going to be a common sight at actions in the near future. I wouldn't mind a couple of them for project cars. Step vans aren't difficult to find either, though they are surprisingly difficult to find for a decent price from my experience. I guess that's because a good chunk of them have equipment inside and most sellers expect to be selling to businesses, not someone looking for a project vehicle.

    Until recently the UPS Package Cars were manual transmission. Sweet, huh?

    I'll be working on my "legalize cat deletes" website soon. In training for a new job and they have me on super late hours, but I have the weekend off so I might have some time to work on it.

    It's always better, in my opinion, to get rid of an onerous law before it can be enforced rather than count on it never being enforced.

    Every evening @7/8pm I go for a night bike ride for about 6 miles
    (For about 2 weeks EXCEPT Christmas Eve/Day and New Years Eve/Day)

    But something very different happened today...



    I have a Trek 7.2 (Hybrid Bike w/ 21 speeds)
    It is equipped with:
    • Bike Rack (Nothing in it)
    • 2 Very Bright Tailights (one on seat post/ the other on the bike rack)
    • 1000 Lumen Chinese Bike Light and a CatEye EL135 Bike light (Its a weak light) (I turn off the 1000 lumen light when cyclists/peds are approaching to not blind them. The other light stays on)
    (I take night riding seriously)

    However, Tonight when I went for my routine bike ride...

    I was already heading home on the bike path going at a normal pace minding my own buisness.(it read 12mph on the bike computer while cruising on a tall gear)
    Things were fine until I passed by a homeless encampment to the side of the path and then they started yelling profanity at me for no reason! (Didn't mind when I passed by before) (Maybe they got tired of seeing me?)
    Next, I noticed a bald dude hanging out with the transients (He was dressed like an old school gang banger YIKES!) giving me a nasty look with his fists clenched as I passed by him.
    It was about a minute later when I looked back and there he was CHASING ME in his BMX!
    I then pedaled VERY FAST to the point where he couldn't keep up and then gave up and turned around and went back. (I went 20-23mph according on the bike computer while escaping him!)

    But of course, A fit dude in a BMX is no match for a fit teenager in a Hybrid bike going straight in a race. (Taller gear ratios = Higher Top Speed)

    I didn't back off the speed until I was making a right on the intersection on 2 main streets which was about 1 mile from the bike path.

    After that, everything was normal on the way home...

    (It's a habit for me to look back every 10-20 seconds when I'm riding in the streets to check for oncoming vehicles.)

    Who knows, If I didn't look back and didn't noticed the dude in the BMX chasing me... He probably would've done something to me..

    I was scared shitless at first but relieved I was able to outrun him.

    Trust me... This isn't BS. It actually happened on the evening of January 4th, 2018

    Loving the new system now, feedback on reports is something I've always wanted.

    I'd like to see a project car on them, since a similar car, the Domino's Pizza Car has been used before as a salvage project. Maybe a official drift LLV?

    Thats concerning. I have been chased around a park in my area by 5 kids on skateboards and BMX bikes in midday. They wanted to take my bike (I don't know why, it is a 20 year old mountain bike) and claimed I stole it from them. People are just terrible, they can't just leave people alone who are minding their own business.

    Changing the shitty fluorescent light in my dad's kitchen. The paint under it was dyed brown thanks to 40+ years of chain smoking before the current light went up in the '80s. Yay for old houses.

    Well, he should've bought out the company, considering he's a GAMBLER and (correct me if I'm wrong) has control of the casino.

    You can already buy a what is essentially a Grumman LLV.


    The LLV's are based on 80's 2wd S10 Blazer frames with Iron Duke four clyinders, TH180's, 10 bolt rears, S10 gauge clusters and steering wheels.
