Sonofabeach!  This just makes me want to break out the racing games again.  They've been collecting dust for so long.  Even if only for one lazy day.  If you've never seen this, it starts off slow.  Give it a chance, you won't be sorry.  Most of all, remember, this is a video game!

MUSIC:

Rolled into work this morning to the tune of Anthony David, "Georgia Peach" and it's spot welded into my brain.  I can't shake it.  This happens to me all the freak'n time, but usually it's something from the disco 70's or a hair band of the 80's.

So, what's stuck in YOUR head today?

Way to be on top of things +Amy OgLesby . Besides, it's not my fault that +Lynne Dykins sent me the elusive turkey chalkboard art, which as I found out, didn't look ANYTHING like the real turkeys!

I just watched this...wtf with the chubby kid in the red sweater. I'd be tempted to take most of the real presents back after that, little ungrateful shit.

OK my fellow Google'ers....  I have a request.

To start with, hope you enjoy the picture.  Now...  my buddy has a birthday coming up soon, and on of his favorite movies of ALL TIME is "Serenity".  I need quotes from the movie for a project.  Could be long, could be short, but they have to be accurate.  Any quote from the movie "SERENITY" please!  Sadly, I've never seen it, and don't foresee having the free time to sit down and watch it before the deadline. 

Come one... come all... and unite in a worthy cause!

Thanks peeps.
-Brian
 
My kind of Serenity prayer....

so, I hit the lab this morning and they had this little gem on display.  It's made out of a polimer powder and passed over thousands of times with a laser, layer by layer.  Each gear on the model is one solid piece that interconnects with surrounding gears.  You turn one, they all turn together.  There are no "pieces" of this model, as it's all made as one part.  Totally amazing.

Story
Tagline
I'm a design engineer for Boeing, currently working on the US Air Force Refueling Tanker project. My "other" job is with the US Air Force as a C-17 Mechanic. I've been serving with the Reserves since 1995, and with the US Air Force since 1992.
Introduction
I'm a father of 3 wonderful kids.  Two boys who have now graduated high school and started the next chapter of their lives.  My Daughter still lives at home with me in Lake Stevens, Washington. 

I am a design engineer with Boeing and work once a month with the US Air Force Reserves on the mighty C-17 Globemaster III as a flightline mechanic. 

On my free time, I love to work on my1985 Toyota MKII Supra.  I've owned it since 2009, and have either rebuilt or replaced pretty much everything in it over the last couple years.  A JDM 6MGE engine swap.  Rebuilt transmission.  Rebuilt rear differential.  BFGoodrich Radial T/A tires.  Whiteline sway bars.  Drilled and Slotted rotors.  OBX Headers.  Full custom exhaust system.  LED dash lights.  HID headlights.  200 amp alternator with dual batteries and a battery isolator.  And a stereo system that causes permanent hearing damage.

That's not the only project vehicle.  I also built (from the ground up) a 1960 Chevy K10 Apache stepside 4x4.  It sits on 35" tires, Mickey Thompson wheels, Rancho shocks.  A 327 CID engine gives it power.  Rockwell T221 transfer case puts that power to the wheels.  Upgraded axles front and rear.  Electric fans on the radiator.  A 200 amp alternator powers the stereo, light bar, and winch.  Nothing low key about this truck. It's an all American muscle flexing work of art!

The latest toy is the 1996 Jeep Cherokee Classic.  Future plans will be a mild lift kit, wheels, tires, and a better stereo.  This will eventually become my daughters daily driver. 

On my "free time", I help one of my best friends build his house.  It's a long, and difficult process and I try to get down there as often as I can to help as much as I can.  He's always been there to help me with my stupid projects, so I try to be there for his ENORMOUS project.  It's what friends do.
