    That is Paul Walker from the Fast and the Furious franchise. He was racing his car down the streets in Hollywood and died in a crash car fire.

    "Get busy living" is a good concept. I did so much playing that year that skipping the gig was mostly forgotten in my mind.

    Hehe. Horn Loading is serious business. I also remember the fellow tuba player who recruited me switched to a different group because the Cavaliers were all dudes. He did a year with Magic and then I think went into the Marines. I switched out of music and back to engineering and lost touch.

    And yes. This image is funny. Ish:

    That pretty clearly shows it wasn't staged but still... the chances of that happening...

    I'm thinking on that one. But the marks in dirt smell like he just ditch dribbled an empty box to me. I would have expected a trough If it had launched off the pogo stick. And maybe a bit more speed scrub.

    I think the driver just went right and hit the drainage ditch. Then the drive way. Then back down in the drainage ditch. And Whoops there the box goes on the roof.

    @appraiser here's your call!

    So, I believe that the situation was Paul Walkers buddy was “ trying out” Paul’s brand new Porsche SGT3, with Paul in the passenger seat. The car required more talent than his buddy had and he lost control. The SGT3 is actually Porsche’s factory race prepped and scca legal right off the showroom floor. The have 5 point harnesses,roll cages and soft compound tires,as sold . I’m not sure but I think that they cost around 200k but are delivered ready to race.

    I've made the trek to Mouse Mecca, as have most of my friends with kids. I can totally agree with this.

    One of my college profs had the most heinous of all heinous comb-overs. It almost seemed like he was deliberately exaggerating it for comedic effect. I don't mean to cast shame on people with thinning hair - mine's a lot thinner than it used to be too (although of late it's showing up in of all places, my ears and nose). At any rate, specifically because of his 'do, I swore a BLOOD OATH that if/when it would become "feasible" to have a comb-over, I would shave the rest off before I would submit.

    You do know cats aren't like dogs, you can fill a dish with food and they will eat on their own schedule. Now if I forget to fill the dish and it's time for my cat's 2am snak, you're dam right I'm getting up.
