continuing image post day – monumental milage

25-Apr-08

hit 186,000 miles on my ’91 benz which I purchased at 133K. I have yet *knocks very-hard on wood* to have any major repairs. on my ~75 mile a day commute I use about ~2.3 gal. of gas. not too shabby for a 17 year old car.

the internet and how it influences my purchasing habits

21-Apr-08

as much as I’d like to think I don’t need the Internet‘s validation of a purchase in order to actually make one, that’d be fallacy. I grep the web for insight from those who’ve purchased what I want for any tidbit of information they wish to impart. In general, this grepping does one of two […]

Man trapped in an NYC elevator for 41 hours – condensed video via security cam

15-Apr-08

first of all, wow… I can’t help but imagine how I would have handled such an experience. after going batshit crazy for a number of hours, I imagine a spiritual awakening (of sorts) and a heck of a lot of praying. I hope he was a bad man who deserved it, got his come-uppins or […]

bike shopping – final contender: Suzuki DL650 V-Strom ABS

13-Apr-08

update: I purchased this bike! Needs (and what the V-Strom offers): – comfort: upright riding position, feet flat on the ground at stop, no major fatigue from just cruising (fairly hard to judge from intarweb reviews and a brief sit on it at the dealership) – great mpg: would love 60+ (concensus seems to be […]
