Here's Another Cool Car You Don't See Everyday

About ten years ago I was in a small town in Idaho at a gas station that had
three of these, very cool.

Truly Apropos of Nothing

I don't think I have ever seen anything like this !

Rat Rods !!

How can you not like a good rat rod

Lenovo Ideapad S10 Netbook

I just got one of these a few days ago, $399 with 1 gig of ram, 160 gig HDD, Win XP
Intel Atom processor.  This little thing has actually exceeded my expectations, runs
Office very well, has an express card slot (for a Verizon card) and a great display in
a really solid seeming chassis.  The one below is not mine (I got black) but I included
this photo to give an idea of scale.


For those who appreciate a good flashlight as much as I do, this place seems to have 
nearly every conceivable type.  For the true flashlighte gangsta

On the subject of animal oddities

The Munchkin Cat - It's on wikipedia so it must be true

To  me this cats expression looks
just like Pepe LePew's Paramour

Geoducks (Pronounced Gooey Duck)

For those not from WA State, I submit for your consideration the Geoduck

While We're on the Retro Cycle Path - URALS

If you're looking for old school commuting, look no farther than the Ural.

Finally !

Ever since I was a kid with a paper route I always thought it made sense to motorize a basic bike.  
They are light and designed to operate without alot of power, so you can use a teeny motor. 
Anyway, these guys finally did it.  And while it's way expensive and a bit over the top, it's pretty
cool non-the less.  Derringer Cycles
