Bubba's wrong this time.

It's not that different from the average TV setup - depending on size and distance of course... Of course, I don't understand how people can do this either...

It was a movie I had scene before. Couldnít find a podcast that interested me so I was fine just listening to it.

I usually tend to cook while watching a movie. My go-To's are Dark Night Trilogy, Harry Potter, Interstellar, Last Samurai.

Not that it takes me the whole movie to finish cooking, just like to have something to listen to whilst I prep/cook.

Working on the car is different, I like to focus on the car itself. Washing is different, must have music. Same with lawn work.

Agh, well there you go. I rarely watch a movie more than once. (or any TV show. or read/listen to a book for that matter)

There's just too much content available for me to do that.

Damn, crazy news out of Baltimore. I can’t believe they found survivors. Hopefully they can find more.

Yea, I used to live in the DC area, and that was my least favorite bridge. The video of the collapse is just awful. Thank goodness it happened at the time it did. That bridge carries a massive amount of traffic during the day.

This is why I am so glad I purchased an enclosed trailer to haul my cars from San Jose to Idaho myself instead of hiring a company. A guy a couple miles down the road owns a transport company. This trailer has been sitting on the side of the road for 2+ weeks. We have only had about 7 rain/hail storms in that time. Poor owners, especially the hot rod. Rain/hail is good for interiors, right?

That's why I was so particular about the company I had bring my car from Utah to Ontario. Enclosed, air ride, fully insured and no switching on and off loading between trucks or companies.

So apparently there is this viral video of some "alpha male boot camp" and upon watching it, I felt a strange sadness to know there are people out there paying for it. Then I laughed

I hate doing alignments. Was thinking of adding a touch more camber in the rear and decided it was good enough with just a touch more toe in. The back and forth fiddling with toe and camber just wears me out. If I had a 4 post lift maybe I'd not mind so much but no place for that. Corner balancing is a pain too, and one of my scales is fuzzy on it's numbers, keeps bouncing around. Done to 'good enough for local events' with just an oil change left to do. I've also probably said all this before...
