An request.

An request.

So, I’m still looking for a job. One option is going back to being a courier for a while. The only problem is I would need a camper shell for my truck, and I don’t have any money to buy one. So, if you live anywhere within ~150 miles of Atlanta, can you check your Facebook marketplace for a free camper shell and let me know if there is one? Preferably designed for a first-gen Colorado, but...

I did an date

I did an date

I just wanted to talk about it here because it was super fun and car-related! We met up at a go kart place and she bought us each a race, and then it took really long for a birthday party to finish up ahead of us, so they gave us each a bonus race on the house. I had the best overall lap time, but she had the best average. Then we went to the arcade and she bought us each a $50 game card...

Ebay needs forced auto-pay.

Ebay needs forced auto-pay.

Two weeks ago, I sold ten Hot Wheels for $40. I'm STILL waiting for payment. The frustrating thing is the cars were only worth that much because they were brand new and hard to find; with every passing day, the value drops. I've come to accept that I'm not getting my money (and he's not getting his cars), but if I relist them, I'll be lucky to get half of what I "sold" them for this time.

I just did a very, very shortsighted thing.

I just did a very, very shortsighted thing.

I quit my job without any new plans whatsoever. I mean, that’s kind of a lie, because I have my Postmates welcome kit coming in the next few days and I still run a semi-active eBay store, but other than that, I have nothing. Starship said they’d take me if they had any positions available, but they don’t. And that’s the only place I know I would be comfortable working right now.

Here are some...

Did you hear that the penny machine stopped working at the US mint?

Nobody knows what’s wrong with it. It just doesn’t make any cents.

My dog was sick, so I brought him to my neighbor, the ex-skinhead.

My dog was sick, so I brought him to my neighbor, the ex-skinhead.

I figured it would be best to let a veteran Aryan check him out.

Now I'm mad.

Now I'm mad.

It's really not that big of a deal, but I've been expecting a call from a potential new employer the past few days, and I woke up to a voicemail after taking a short nap just now. I was so excited, but it wasn't the new job. It wasn't even spam. No, my current boss forgot to change the welcome email for customers to the other person's number today, and I got a call asking when he would be...

Squeeze!

Squeeze!

I’m going to see them live in about an hour! They’re touring with X, and I had no idea about that until like 20 minutes ago. But there were still some tickets available, so now I’m out $45, but I’m going to go see some amazing bands that will certainly make my parents jealous.

Thanks, Nibby.

Thanks, Nibby.

Nibby posted this as a reply to something a few days ago and it has been stuck in my head ever since.

Gonna do a thing.

Gonna do a thing.

First of all, thanks for the advice on the Hyundai thing! And for the none of you who care, here’s what’s going on in my life right now: I hate my job. Again. It’s not the job so much as my boss, though. But anyway, the final straw came when he took back his promise to give me time off for Alchemy (a Burning Man type festival) and the Petit Le Mans next month. So I’m 99% sure I’m quitting,...

Insurance question.

Insurance question.

My dad’s friend has a question that neither of us knows the answer to, so he asked me to post it here:

I need advice. Daughter has a 2014 Hyundai Veloster, not even 71,000 miles and the turbo went and therefore threw metal into the engine, destroying the engine. She still owes over 11,000 (4 years) on it but since she’s not the original owner, the warranty is not in affect. Has anyone had any...

Tool set recommendations

Tool set recommendations

So, I recently realized that my random assortment of tools is.... stupid. I’ve collected them from the junkyard and occasionally bought the specific one I need at the time, but I’d rather just go out and buy a proper toolbox with everything in it already, especially since my old box actually broke during my accident. So... what’s the best basic, all-inclusive tool set I can find for ~$40 or...

Has anyone used this app? I applied to be a driver yesterday and haven’t heard back yet, but I’m sure I will soon. In the meantime, though, I’m curious how well it will work out. Are there lots of jobs all the time throughout the week, or is it more of a thing to do once or twice a weekend? Ideally, I can use this and other odd jobs in place of a real full-time job (my current boss is being...

Oppo Dragon meet was fun!

Oppo Dragon meet was fun!

I mean, I left on Saturday because I wasn’t feeling well, but I did enjoy dinner and breakfast with everyone at least! Aaand, here are the two shots that the Killboy guy got of me:

Nothing of the rear, which is weird because I know he took a few. Oh well; I’d be mad if I already had my custom tag, but I don’t so it’s whatever.

I didn't take any other pictures aside from one of RamblinRover's...

Just Colorado Things

Just Colorado Things

I knew it was only a matter of time. I had to buy a scanner because it was 6AM and only Walmart was open. Turns out the engine had Dr Pepper instead of oil and Pringles cans in place of the pistons.

Nah, just a broken gas cap. I took it off and put it back twice and no dice, so definitely not just loose. Crazy that it didn't happen until after I burned through half a tank. I wonder what let it...

New motorsport: the RAINBOW Challenge

New motorsport: the RAINBOW Challenge

It stands for “Road And Interstate Navigators’ Battle Of Wits” and it’s a combination road rally and trivia contest. Each team has a driver, navigator, and moderator. The moderator rides with one of the opposing teams. Before the event, each team must come up with 50 unique trivia questions (or fewer with more teams, but there should be at least 100 questions total) that can be as easy or as...

Z0IDBRG is on its way! Apparently Georgia doesn't do Os on custom plates, so I had to get a zero.

Dumb driver + dumb driveway.

Dumb driver + dumb driveway.

Red line represents a GMC Acadia which had the right of way. Blue line represents a Kia Sedona which wanted to go to Chuck E Cheese. Sedona failed to look, I saw what was going down, I honked, both drivers kept going, boom. 100% fault to the Kia in my book.

HOWEVER

I do want to point out how horrible the design is of the entrance to the restaurant. If you’re coming from Rockbridge, you’re all...

Wheels.

Wheels.

I’m not getting these exact ones because they’re nearly $300 apiece and I’m on a budget of about $0 at the moment, but what do you think of bronze (or maybe gold. One of the brown metals) on red? The ones pictured are 17s, but I’d rather get 18s or 19s. Maybe. Those, along with a 3"+ drop, would be perfect for a while.
