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 […]

Car Safes

Every now and then, I have to disarm. I try to avoid it, but sometimes you have to go to “gun-free” zones to get stuff done.

Like getting new license plates. Or meeting friends for dinner at a restaurant I’ve never been to and seeing the please rob my restaurant gunbuster sign.

Because, you […]

Tactical Dog Approves

Overheard in the car

Driving down the Interstate, we are passed by a Subaru WRX STI.

Me: Man, I’d love to have one of those some day. Mrs wizardpc: But that’s a hippie car. Me: What? It’s a turbocharged off-road rally racer that gets like 18mpg! How is that a hippie car? Mrs wizardpc: Because it’s made at a […]

To-done list

Up at 0430. On purpose.

Ran a 5k. Mostly.

Went to the gun show. Surprisingly few guns. The only thing I came home with was for the dog.

Moved blog from a self hosted solution to a hosting provider. I was already paying for the space and didn’t want to have downtime […]

Things I see on my commute

That is a vintage John Deere in the turn lane. Beats the hell out of 8 lanes of concrete and stop and go traffic.

Clearly, the answer is more government regulation

The geniuses that run my city banned parking on the street several years ago*. People adapted in completely predictable ways and started parking in their yards.

Obviously, that means we need to ban people from parking in their own yards.

I’m sure that in a few years they’ll limit the size of driveways, and […]

I’m having a hard time following the logic here

First off, let’s remember that the reason the economy is in the crapper is because people who shouldn’t have gotten loans to buy houses got loans to buy houses, cars, jacuzzi tubs, and jetskis and ridiculously low interest rates based on nothing more than “I want it and deserve it because I breathe air!” When […]

Introducing oddball

Oddball and I go way back. He and I ran in the same circles in high school, and we think we might have run into each other back then. We really started hanging out about 7 years ago when I moved back to Nashville and started getting involved with a local group of geeks.

When […]
