    Hey luquado, besides the LS400, still have the GTO of course, wife's driving a 1970 beetle, and just picked up a 1958 Berkeley. Super cool and super tiny. Has under 13,000 miles and I think it might have the original tires on it. It has a two cyl motor cycle engine and because it's under 1,200 lbs it's titled as a motor cycle!! Check out how huge it makes this new beetle look!!

    I’d like that, Balton. Try to get some video in the process. We need more chainsaw-wielding nutjobs running around keeping our senses on high alert. Maybe thrown in a stink bomb or two. People like to wrinkle up their noses.

    Oh wow. You’ve lost touch with reality. This is the age of “Give me what’s mine before I die.” My plan is to burn up as much fossil fuel and create the biggest carbon footprint as possible before I become worm food.

    This is amazing news. So far, I’ve kept my grandkids in the basement shackled to a radiator where they believe the most exciting games in the world are card games. Just imagine their enthusiasm when they learn of this new highly-pixelated game! Why…why they could go forth and tell the story of this wondrous game and how grandpa has kept them shackled to the radiator for years and … Auwhmm. You know, I think I’ve said too much.

    Man and wife are out together at a nightclub, sitting and talking at a table.

    Some guy is on the dance floor break dancing, doing backflips, moon walking, all kinds of moves.

    Wife: See that guy out there? 20 years ago he proposed to me and I turned him down.

    Husband: Yeah......Looks like he's still celebrating.

    I'm sorry to say, but the Rukee has passed away, a little over a year ago. May he rest in peace, and DM-Toberus live forever.

    Rest in peace Rukee. Though I never knew your real name, you were part of the best online community I've ever had. This community was one of the few things that kept me going through the rough days of high school. I'm glad you were a part of it, and you will be dearly missed. :(

    Wow! That’s sad to hear. I know we all expire at some point, but it’s a tough hit when someone was an important part of our past.

    I’m 61 now. I don’t know how many years I have left. I guess none of us do.

    Being a physicist, I like to think of death in, perhaps, an unusual way. We are made up of molecules, which are made up of atoms. When we drink water, that hydrogen-oxygen bond may have been part of a dinosaur that gave up the ghost eons ago.

    There are a couple ways of looking at that (my) assessment: Sterile, no compassion, or we all are a part of this vast universe.

    Rukee will live on as a part of our universe.

    I had a bitter-sweet relationship with the man. The bitter came from the MythBusters episode about a plane trying to take off from a conveyor belt. I probably over analyzed the experiment by picturing a large aircraft like an old B-54 UltraFortress prop plane trying to take off on a conveyer belt where the forward progress of the plane was matched exactly by the conveyor pulling the plane backwards. MythBusters couldn’t duplicate that scenario with the sheer weight of the plane, the slow takeoff, and the giant conveyor belt that was up to the challenge of matching the forward progress of the plane with the frictional force of the conveyor pulling the plane backwards.

    Stupid, right? An ultralight did take off from some makeshift tarp being pulled along the ground and Rukee had his pride and I had mine where I tried to explain my version of how that scenario should have been interpreted.

    I blocked Rukee after that. That was stupid of me and fueled by pride.

    After that, here’s what Rukee did for me: He helped me pick out computer parts to build a new desktop. He told me that I could get a motherboard fairly cheap, but it had a slight bottleneck. That PC lasted me for many years. But then he spends his money, time, etc to ship me a CPU cooler. He didn’t need to do that, but he did.

    Does anyone remember when Rukee had folks (investors) drop by to check out his invention for a lawn mower where a weed eater was attached so you could mow and trim at the same time? I don’t think it worked out with the patent rights, but good for him! At least he had the sack to try.
