Had to run some errands this afternoon, including getting some pills for Mrs. Fungus, paying the water bill, and getting dinner. No problem, thought I; it's a gorgeous spring day and I have a motorcycle!

Front tire: flat.

Pumped it up, took off, got halfway done with my errands, and gee does that front tire feel mushy...? Limped home, checked pressure, didn't register--but had enough pressure in it to keep me from riding it off the rim, anyway. So I put the bike on its center stand and carefully inspected the front tire, and found absolutely nothing wrong with it.

Apparently air is simply leaking out through the eighth dimension, or something.

It wouldn't be nearly as aggravating if there were a nail or a screwdriver or the jawbone of an ass sticking out of the tire, if there were some indication of what the problem is. Instead, I just have a tire which goes flat from full pressure in about fifteen fucking minutes.


I suppose I'm going to have to dismount the motherfucker and pull it apart and immerse the inner tube in water to find the f-ing leak. What a pisser.

My brain asplode. Then again, the only logic training I ever had was in 7400 series digital logic, which does not help me solve this kind of logic problem.

Big f-ing surprise department: Obamacare has soured people on wealth redistribution because it doesn't fucking work.

Do not anger Vox Day. Vox Day is the kind of person I wish I were: effective. When I say I'm going to grind the whole world to powder I am engaging in hyperbole; I do believe Vox Day could do it if he wanted to.

Then again, my lack of efficacy is the only thing standing between us and a world of powder, so I guess that's actually a good thing.

Good news: SpaceX is a step closer to recovering boosters. SpaceX has made space exploration exciting again, damn it, and every flight is a triumph.

I wonder how they handle it when someone guesses wrong. Like Randy Marsh saying "niggers" instead of "naggers".

This one would be a little worse.

A commenter points out that the "A__" cannot be "air" since all the I's have already been found. Another commentor points out that the puzzle would be a phrase rather than a thing.

Therefore, Photoshop. But funny.

These tires went on in October of 2012. There's much less than 2,000 miles on them. New tires, new tubes, no evidence of damage--WTF.

I tried tightening the valve, to see if that's the issue; we'll find out later if that was the problem, though I for damn sure don't see how that could be it.

What a pain in the--
