Huh, didn't eve realize this was a thing but it is nice that there is one.  
So what does the camera mean to you?  For me it was one of the first truly immersive attempts to convey the world as we see it (Or chose to interpret it).  Not taking away from the written word, traditional song etc, but the invention of the camera gave us a whole new ability to chronicle the world as it happened. 

As a hobbyist I find the idea of capturing a moment in time to be amazing and am profoundly glad that cameras are so readily accessible by all walks of life.  

So what does the camera represent to you?
  NATIONAL CAMERA DAY National Camera Day is observed each year on June 29th.  This day celebrates photographs, the camera and its invention.  The camera is an irreplaceable tool used to recor...

Regardless of your stance on firearms (and I know it's polarizing) 
I give credit to these trained shooters and the editing team.

Now this is something that I've been amused by.  I grew up mostly around FF racing, Celicas, Civics etc.  My dream would have been to drive a nice used Supra, but that didn't happen.  The thing is I came to respect the engagement in driving a good RWD car.  So eventually, with ugh 'adulthood' looming when I had the means, I bought a RWD sport sedan.  Never looked back since. While it has its downsides, its also been the most fun car I've had to just throw around and enjoy.

Not knocking AWD or FWD either, all the drivetrains have their pros and cons but there is something about the dynamics of RWD that reminds you to keep your focus on the driving and I get a kick out of that.  

+Zarli Win , +Ku'iokalani Goshi-Agena , +Chris Kwock  what say you guys?
I've had this conversation with a couple of very smart people in the car world and I haven't heard a good answer yet: why does everyone love rear-wheel drive now?

It's a little of both to me.  With tech improvements manufacturers have been able to make RWD more stable yet still fun.  With a market dominated by FF cars, having something FR also adds both drive wise and look wise to being more distinct which helps the models stick out and works well marketing wise.

Every now and then I like to see people push vehicles to ridiculous performance levels and this sub-7's Supra is a must see.

I genuinely wish Toyota would get back to building engines with the type of tunning potential as the 2JZ, but with fuel economy leading the charge and Toyota falling horribly behind when it comes to turbos etc I doubt I'll see it any time soon. Still though, enjoy the sound of this Supra tearing down the 1/4 mile :)

Normally don't post much publicly but thought I'd try to get the world out.  The Gravity Light team has a second round of crowdfunding going.  If you've ever been without power during a storm or natural disaster or traveled to regions without stable electrical grids you'll understand the importance of these types of projects.  I found the concept intriguing.  Give it a once over and consider donating to the cause.
Everyone should have safe and clean light. Support us to create light - and jobs - from gravity! | Crowdfunding is a democratic way to support the fundraising needs of your community. Make a contribution today!

I generally don't throw out info for crowdfunding but I'll make an exception here.  

I'm glad to support the folks at Gravity Light (http://www.gravitylight.org) who's GL02 funding drive just went live.

http://gravitylight.org/coming-soon-gl02/

Please consider supporting this project.  I believe a basic resource such as having a viable light source is a great boon not only to regions of the globe that are without power but as a possible resource for those areas affected by natural disasters.  

If you've got an inkling consider donating just a little.

Excellent, Broh!
I have actually thought of harvesting wind and solar energy on my property
by raising a junk truck or something and letting it descend to power a
generator.

This is a great concept. Pet owners out there, share with friends, and let's try to get more shelter dogs adopted into forever homes.
 
Shelter Dog Photobooth Pics help them get adopted
These photos capture these dogs’ individual personalities, and it looks like the approach works – the dogs that get the photobooth treatment get a lot of attention, and many of them get adopted as well.

Usually not a Dodge guy but even I gotta give a nod to these tuners for creating an off the wall dual-engined SRT4 :P

Check out this video of a two-engine Dodge Neon doing separate front and rear burnouts, then launching down the track.

Nice jab at the FWD but I'll admit, I started in FWD and it was a great experience getting to flog the old Celicas around.  In fairness though I do prefer the dynamics of taking a nice balanced RWD car around :)
Every tried to explain to someone the difference between front-wheel drive and rear-wheel drive? Just show them this video.

Kai-Photo were an absolute pleasure to work with. My wife Gina and I were always comfortable both for our engagement photos and on the big day. While both our ceremony venue and reception presented some interested challenges Kyler and Hiko did an excellent job at capturing the mood of our wedding day, behind the scenes and during all our special moments. From the day of the wedding to the day we received our first prints, Grace was in constant contact with us letting us know where things were and stepping us through the proofs. I would heartily recommend Kai-Photo to anyone looking for a great wedding photography team.
