Also, if you guys haven't seen the Ford Heritage YouTube channel, you definitely should. It's all old films about Ford products. Here are a few more great videos.

Welded For The First Time Today

Welded For The First Time Today

It was basic stick welding with a 6012 rod. We did circles and lines, then an overlapping pattern over 3 plates. No pictures, but I found I was a little fast and when I got to the end of the electrode I shifted my hands too much. My spacing and control was okay though, overall though. I had one fun moment when the electrode got stuck to the plate and I couldn't get it off. Then the plate...

Apparently I'm at a ChumpCar race?

Apparently I'm at a ChumpCar race?

I legitimately didn’t know I’d end up here.

I went to a supercar driving thing, drove a Gallardo Superleggera, then went to see what all to commotion was on the track. Turned out it was ChumpCar.

I Got The Job!

I Got The Job!

I walked in for my interview, sat down, and basically the guy told me I got the job before he even asked many questions. He told me I need to be careful, because if I scratch a $100,000 car, I am the one that has to tell the owner. He then gave me a tour and told me I need to do a background check and drug test. I start in around a week. The pay isn't bad either. It's base pay + commission for...

Hnghh.

Looks a bit odd without headlights, but you don’t usually need them at a track day.

It says a lot about him. He chooses to drive this '13 when he could easily take out a $145,000 fully loaded 2015 Autobiography.

This should probably be shared to LaLD.

So, my mom wants a diecast of her car, a W123 Mercedes 300TD. Surprisingly, one popped up on eBay. The only problem is that it's green, while hers is tan. So my plan is to repaint it for her, but I'm not sure I can take it apart. Any ideas?

Rando Maserati for reading.

There is a seat that may open up for my city-county council district (Indianapolis, District 25, if you’re curious) and I really want to just go for it. I figure I can easily fund a campaign, but I’m not sure if I stand any chance at all. I mostly just want to run for the thrill of being a politician (What can I say? I kinda enjoy schmoozing.) There also really...

Neil deGrasse Tyson described it as “nerd rapture”. The future is now (well, 50-100 years from now, well within 20-30 year olds’ life time), folks.

The real question is - how would you deal with a mental immortality? Would anything actually matter if you were living forever inside a computer simulation (which we could very well be doing right now, we just don’t know it)?

Looking at apartments in the morning

Looking at apartments in the morning

Decided it’s finally time to move out of my parents’ house (they’ve decided that I should probably start paying rent). Going to be splitting a 2 bedroom with a good friend of mine (we’re going to get a nice contract drawn up that prevents non-payment in case either of us wants out early). Should be interesting. It's hard to find an affordable place in Indy that we won't be either shot at or...

My Secret Senna hasn't posted his gift yet. I sent it last Tuesday with 2 day shipping, so I'm afraid it was lost in the mail or was delivered incorrectly. I'm going to wait a little while longer before I straight up ask the person if they've gotten it, though.
