Wednesday's Digressions



    A treasure from Wise County Museum in Decatur- team pic from my high school-  I had marching band practice that day and missed being present.



  • Your unsolicited advice for the lovelorn for the day: when someone announces their intention to leave you- let them go if you want to ever have any chance at getting back together. If you do not, the more you reach out and try to pull them back the more they will pull away. Let them go and throw yourself into being a better person- for yourself. Work out, improve your skills and knowledge for your job, be a better friend to those you call a friend and a better brother, sister uncle- or whatever. You'll be a more attractive choice for the next person (or maybe the one who left will realize what they lost) and most importantly better for you- the only person you are guaranteed to be with for the rest of your life.
  • Bought a headlight lens cover polishing kit for The Beemer today. Never tried it before, but it sounds worthwhile.
  • I went to O'Reilleys this evening for windshield wiper blades- 270 dollars later I walked out with more than I could carry to the car in one trip. It was all stuff I really need and will use though, but there was impulsivity involved.
  • When the prospect of life outside outside our planet comes up someone always says something about the arrogance of doubting there life outside our solar system and often use the term. The height of arrogance. That seems odd- whether it is a fact, a theory, a proposition or whether it is correct or incorrect that does not necessarily involve arrogance. Arrogance implies an intent that can't be discerned from a statement such as, There is no chance of extraterrestrial life.
  • Whether there is or not- there has never been any credible evidence that any sentient beings have visited Earth.
  • Ever wondered: Why do 90% of UFO sightings or reports of contact involve the good ole US of A?
  • I can't wait for Zac and Scott to help me work on The Beemer and especially can't wait to see Scott drive her around. There's a better name for her out there I suppose than Teh Beemer, but everything else I come up with sounds too Teutonic based on her origin or racist based on her color.
  • Coming soon: a full K&N intake set. Coming later: a turbocharger. I've been wanting to own a turbo car for a long time.
  • Another experiment related to this car I want to make happen will be setting aside the average amount I would have been spending had she been financed and when it's time to get a new car use the cash that has been set aside to that point.

Oldest son texted me this morning saying he was gonna buy a mini-Blazer that's not running, for $300, get it running and flip it for some cash for a '90s model Civic to build a ricer. Then he wants to get a Scion iQ...and drop in a 2.6l Hayabusa V8 in it.

Oy!
