That is so awesome. Going to the link posted at the end of the video leads to an interesting two-wheel-drive hydrostatic dirt bike. I want one.
Proof that if you can shape metal, you can do whatever the hell you want to. Damn it, I need to get the garage cleaned out....
I missed last night's earthquake. I slept right through it.
Chinese weapons to be used in upcoming Zimbabwe civil war. Bet on it.
Another take on Zimbabwe. It sounds like Mugabe's government wanted to cut a deal with the opposition, but the opposition (foolishly) insisted on following the rule of law: Mugabe's government lost the election.

Something you can't teach in California: "Gay sex kills." It's worse for you than smoking: "homosexual conduct shortens the lifespan of 'gays' by an astounding '8 to 20 years' – more than twice that of smoking."
Wow, we've finally found something that's worse for you than smoking.
Can't understand why the perpetrator didn't just leave a note? Maybe it's because people keep parking there regardless. Here's an idea: if you park in a no-parking zone, expect bad things to happen.
No sympathy here.
Nor for this: 19-year-old moron kid sideswipes a police car while eating and talking on a cell phone, and is then surprised that he's ticketed.
I have to ask, what the hell was he driving with? His feet?
Jerry Pournelle's web site posts a letter from a reader today with an excellent quote:
"If you look out into the long-term future and what you see looks like science fiction, it might be wrong. But if it doesn't look like science fiction, it's definitely wrong."
