      10 years

      8 months ago

      I was in the midst of finals and didn't have time. But I have now been on this site for ten whole years, nearly 50% of my total time on earth. It's staggering how far I have come, and how far RVB has come. I've met a lot of cool people that are now close friends and had a few laughs a long the way.

      That being said, I am at a crossroads, I am officially done as a full time student, I have two classes to complete and will be working part time next semester. I am reevaluating my life because I am about to have a major shift, and I am still trying to figure out how Red vs Blue (this site) and how social media fits into it in general. I am friends with a lot of the people on my friends list on Facebook or in person so at this point, RVB feels redundant. Though, I have said I would leave the site multiple times and yet here I am talking about 10 years, so we'll see.

      Rapidly Approaching

      9 months ago

      Life seems to have flown by, in less than a month I will have been on this site for ten years, I am close to graduating college and will be somewhat of an 'adult' It's weird thinking about how far i've come, how far RT has come, and where we're all heading.

      I am glad to have been a part of it, and hopefully it can remain a part of my life for many years to come!

      Sometimes you have to look back at goals that get lost, for one reason or another, and resurrect them

      Cakeday update

      2 years ago

      tomorrow is my 21st Birthday. It's kind of hard to believe. The first year I truly started to understand the significance of becoming older was when I turned 18, I was finally not a child anymore, college would be my time to prove this to myself, and to my friends and family. The second time, was when I turned 20, I was no longer a teenager. Based on average life expectancy, I have lived almost a quarter of my life, this put things into perspective and made me focus on the important things in life.

      Now, I am turning 21, while the number is fairly arbitrary, it still holds weight in that society now deems it acceptable for me to drink in public. This past year I have developed a plan for my life, with some easily attained goals, and some that will require a lot of work and dedication. I have been looking back on what I have learned so far, and I remember how this site has been a part of it for really as long as I can remember. I hope to share more and more as I venture forth, I realized that some of my best friends have come from this site, and I feel there are more people to meet and become friends with.

      So cheers mates, here's to another great year!

      That's not gone well........

      So Engineering is over, after a second go at Calculus II, and a bit of personal searching. It's time to get off this clearly incompatible path. I Have a great appreciation for engineering and the feats of human ingenuity that come from it, but I guess I'm not meant to actually do it.

      I've decided to go into Information systems instead. I like computers and tinkering with their hardware, so it seems like a decent fit. GPA is standing at a 3.0 and I only lost a few hours of credits by switching, If I can manage A's for the majority of my classes, I could still graduate with honors, which would be very nice. Honestly, I cannot believe I've finished my second year of college, it still feels like I just graduated highschool.

      Oh how time flies.

      Destiny? Maybe.

      3 years ago

      As I was reading the new issue of Hot Rod last night. I glanced upon an advert for their yearly Power Tour, which is a long road trip along a large part of the U.S. On the way there are Drag Racing, Auto Cross, and other activities. But mostly its just a bunch of Muscle Car nuts driving around the country swapping stories and helping broken down cars.

      Starting in Michigan, my jaw instantly dropped to the floor when I noticed that the final destination of this years power tour was none other than: Arlington Texas. Destiny? quite possibly. I have been trying to decide what to do this summer, and this would be a perfect little vacation right at the beginning of it. It runs from June 2nd - June 9th. My hopes are to be able to get enough money to long haul it, which would mean driving to Michigan for the start and following it back home. I would get to see parts of the country I never have (only been to 5 other states in my lifetime and never in the north central zone) And it would just be an amazing road trip experience.

      Must make this happen!

      One problem fixed, another problem added

      3 years ago

      There has been a persistent squeak coming from the front drivers suspension on the Tronino. After much inspection, I determined it was the upper A arm that needed some greasing, So I jacked it up, pulled off the wheel and starting lubing.

      I found that the forward mounting bolt was way to tight, and was binding under actuation. So after loosening it and greasing the forward mount, I moved to the back. The back mount (I use front and back meaning the forward most mount, towards the headlights, as front and back as towards the driver) was adequately tightened, but when I went to grease it. The effing Zert fitting broke off....

      Now, there is only one answer as to why this happened. The dillhole that installed the A arm over tightened the Zert insert in the mount, cracked it, and then just left it there.

      Fucking assholes. They demand way too damn much money to be making such fuckups. It almost makes me want to start my own shop that won't fuck people over with shitty work for exorbitant prices. I bet I would do great business.

        I drove Foehammer's TT last night. I got in and initially the seat was so close that I could not use the steering wheel because my arms are so long. So I had to get into "my racing stance" so I could steer and shift comfortably.

      If you want cock factor on a Desert Eagle then shit just get the .50 cal, go all out.

        Thats the thing though, the .50 is the cock of the group. The.44 and .357 are awesome shooting guns because the overall weight of the weapon is still high so the recoil is naturally reduced. But no one buys them because why not just get the .50?
