My car’s power steering started groaning the other day, which is the classic sign that the power steering fluid is low. So, I stopped by Napa and picked up a small container of Power Steering Fluid.
BMW, in their infinite wisdom, positioned the E36’s power steering fluid reservoir under the engine. This means that, to [...]
There’s been quite a run on guns and ammo recently. Just this weekend, I went to Wal-Mart to pick up some Winchester whitebox ammo (9mm and .45), and they were completely sold out of all common calibers! Hope and Change!
Apparently, the Hope and Change has even reached the Civilian Marksmanship Program:
Normally, we average receiving [...]
From the UNR road trip, 1998:
We don’t blow.
We know how to use our sticks.
It’s good to be right… always.
We don’t lick our wood or tongue our holes.

Police said the 21-year-old man told investigators he forgot he had just reloaded the gun, and squeezed the trigger [...]
People have called my motorcycle a “killer donorcycle”, but can’t imagine getting seriously hurt on a scooter. Here’s a news flash: A scooter IS a motorcycle. Sure, it’s slower, cuter, and has an automatic transmission with no clutch, but it is a motorcycle. That means that the scooterist has all the same safety considerations and [...]
I stopped by the local BMW dealer to take a look at the new 1 Series yesterday. (Yes, I fit! I don’t think I can bring myself to pay $35k for one though.) I was also curious about any certified pre-owned E46s on the lot (since that’s about the only BMW I’d actually buy at [...]
I recently acquired a used Sigma SD10 and several lenses. This is exciting, as I can now get into “serious” photography with a digital camera. My Sony DSC-W1 is a great little digital camera, but like any point-and-shoot, it doesn’t offer the control that a good SLR does. I do own an SLR, a Minolta [...]
