Parking Lot Bill Passes House

On it’s way to Governor Haslam, who’s not keen on it.

We have a very weak executive office in TN. It takes 60 votes in the house to pass a bill, but only 51 to override a veto. The bill got 72 votes.

It will go into effect July 1st if Haslam doesn’t veto it.

FOR SALE: Ford F150, Safe In LA Edition

2005 Ford F150 with only 44,000 miles!

Black, 4×4, power everything!

Only $54,000*!

The perfect thing for elderly ladies delivering newspapers.

The Freight Train

That’s what I got. And yes, it’s got baby seal skin seats.

2002 Ford Excursion Limited Ultimate. I went with a V10 instead of a diesel, because for the extra $7-10,000 a diesel was going to cost me, I decided I’d just buy a commuter car.

How does “non-flammable gasoline” work?

That’s what Extra Fuel claims to be. For emergencies.

My Jeep requires 100% gasoline, so I have to actually plan out my fuel trips. That means I get nervous when I dip below 1/4 tank. I guess […]

Well, obviously!

I buy a lot of used cars. I mean, I used to, back when I would buy an $800, drive it for a year, and sell it for $800.

So as a direct result of that, I have spent a lot of time looking at used car lots. Mostly, that involves driving down the local […]

What size tires does the Dark Knight Batmobile have?

Freaking HUGE ONES!

(okay, the answer is 18.5/44×16.5 Interco Super Swamper IROKs)

Yesterday I took my lunch break to go see the newest Batmobile, called “The Dark Knight Tumbler” and that piddly little bike thingy called the BatPod. It’s neat. Unfortunately, they didn’t let me test drive it.

Protip: Don’t stand 6 feet away from […]

Why YOU should call the cops if you ever display your weapon

I came across this story this morning, and I’ve got some thoughts about what happened. The reporting is pretty slim, so I could be completely wrong, but here goes.

“Victim” and “suspect” are being mutual assholes on the highway. “Victim” decides to teach “suspect” a lesson, and gets out of the car to, er, administer […]
