    • the 226 mph Vette..

      fireworkpete

      Not bad, a vet with a stock body and a couple of Turbo's can do 226 mph. Thats a speed normally reserved for cars that cost more than $200,000.

      You Tube Some parts are slow, but the last shot is an interior run. Watch how fast the driver accelerates through the gears.. Pretty spiffy.

      Edit:, I just knoticed and corrected the spelling errors. I must have been tired.

      Well that was interesting...

      2 F-15 fighter jets just buzzed my apartment. I was napping at the time. However as I recognized that the sound of the air being torn apart wasn't from a normal aircraft I still made it to the window in time :-) They flew from east to west, over campus, and right over my apartment. I wonder what the quad was like when they flew over...

      A friend says they might be down at the airport, so I might go see.

      Peter

      Edit: Went down to the airport to take some photo's of them..

      Well, I had a good review in Studio today. We now are probably going to keep the current ideas we have and just hash out the details.. So very good. On a slight down side I discovered that its going to cost us $130 to ship the project to Spain. No pain, no gain I guess (prize if we get first would be 10,000 Euro's) Not too shabby...

      I mailed off my taxes this weekend. (Its this past years taxes, we have to use extensions.) Believe it or not, due to some extenuating circumstances its actually impossible for me to do my own taxes... If you're curious as to why, just look up an "S Corporation", that'll give you an idea as to why. I just sign em...

      I'm flying out to my brother's wedding in New Jersey this weekend. Jet should be ready to go sometime around 7:30 am Friday morning. Rehearsal that evening followed by the dinner. Then the wedding is Saturday. I will be back on Sunday.

      Anyway, I must return to reading for my seminar. I'll talk to you all later. Ciao mi Amiga's and Amigo's, mes ami's unt Meine Freunde.

    • Big news, and even bigger news..

      Well, today my week from hell ended and my teams project was reviewed by Lisa Iwamoto Linky to her firm here.

      The other news is tomorrow I teach give a lecture to 134 people. No pressure at all right? Ha... Thats all for now.

      The big cheese...

      P.S. Feeling much better now, no longer sick.

      P.P.S. my sisters comment after hearing about my review today "does she know you got practice growing up by making them just to burn? 'cause i bet then she'd switch to "disturbing" and "umm...architects aren't supposed to be arsonists" (my sister speaks of how I used to build complex and complete paper house models and torch them in the fireplace, with pyrotechnic devices)

    • Sick....

      11 years ago

      fireworkpete

      Well, I'm sick...again... One thing I dislike about being human. At least its not a stomach flu. Started with a sore throat, moved into my lungs and sinus. Oh joy.

      On the plus side I didn't have to teach this morning as lab was canceled so I did manage to get in another hour or so of sleep.

      Down and out.

      The only actual training I have is through Cadets. And a handgun shooting clinic. Nothing really spectacular. I know what I need to know, but I only wish that I had gone through more training of sorts. I had a chance to go to Ottawa for a six week shooting camp, but I had a problem with my sights on my rifle, and.. well.... I ended up not going there. I went to the other base instead. But yeah. I had my chance to make it far, and blew it out the window. Ah well... I still shoot for the hell of it. smiley0.gifsmiley12.gif

      That's pretty sweet actually. I've only shot pellet rifles, lee enfields, anchutz, a handful of handguns and C7s. But never have I beat my coach.. Man.. That has been my goal for the longest time. But congrats on you for that. Must've felt great. smiley0.gif

    • NaGaeilLass

      13 years ago

      And what I'm saying is your argument is lame. It may be some sort of scientifical comparitive but from an outsiders view... such as mine.... it's stupid. If you were the president and made that comment you'd be all over the media. What you said... I get it... but it's a retarded way to argue that point.

    • NaGaeilLass

      13 years ago

      My train of thought? You cannot say a baby isn't a part of the mother in any sort of way because it pisses people... especially mothers... off. So until you can find a sufficient comparitive to the unborn fetus besides a fucking tapeworm don't post shit that will piss people off. A weak arugument such as a tapeworm not being part of a person just like a fetus isn't .... is stupid. anything you compare a fetus to just to back up your argument will not help anyways. People hold carrying a baby to be a sentimental thing. I could care less about abortion. I dont have a problem with it. But I find your argument to be the last resort to prove abortion okay. It's pathetic. Sorry. Creepy crawlers don't give off that great of a vibe.

    • NaGaeilLass

      13 years ago

      If you can't find something competitive enough for a fetus then your arguement is flawed. Just proves the baby is part of the mother because nothing can compare to the baby. It's a big deal so therefore it is part of the mother.
