On Sunday night, driving back from up north we passed by a major accident that happened just a couple of cars in front of us. The 125 is a 2 lane highway so one car hydroplaned into the other lane and a full speed header ensued. One of the cars was crushed, the front bumper was nearly in the trunk - without exaggeration. That was a little scary. It was a little freaky to have Rick call me up on Monday morning to see if I was still alive because he heard on the radio that some fellow my age died in a car crash on the 125. A couple of seconds later and it could have been me....

Torture and things

So what would you think if you knew that Pakistan had tortured some British muslim captive to get information that thwarted the liquid bomb plot of last week? Would you say that torture is unacceptable under any circumstance? These days with the first world being so politically correct, dirty stuff like kangaroo courts and torture haven't gone away, they've just been outsourced to countries with looser guidance for this kind of thing.

As for me, In times like these I am all for torture when there is clear evidence of guilt. The "clear evidence of guilt" part is what nobody will ever agree upon.

Travis Pastrana double backflip

Almost exactly two years ago I posted Chuck Caruthers motocross body varial. That post is almost the most viewed page on my blog even now. This one is even cooler.

Travis' double backflip is even cooler.

How I Spent my Summer Vacation aka The Firemen Fiasco

Let me tell you about my vacation last week. Lets see... I chilled out all week and did a bunch of wake surfing and house work. I actually got some air a couple of times which was pretty cool. On Sat nite, I had a couple of people drop by, drank some tequila, had a fire down on my beach, pissed off all my neigbors, almost got one of them divorced, had to explain to the firemen that we really weren't as stupid as we looked and then went to bed. Oh yeah, I ran out of gas in my boat twice and turned into a baboon by Sunday (according to Mimi).

2006 Ferrari P4

There's a difference between being rich and being stinking rich. This dude James Glickenhaus bought a Ferrari Enzo. That makes him rich. He also got Ferrari and Pininfarina to restyle it completely to look more like the retro P3/P4, that makes him stinking rich. Don't quite know how he got so rich making crappy movies. 

Read about it here, here and here.

I knew it

Mel is an idiot but at least he has good taste in booze.

Tequila always seems to be somehow connected to mayhem:

"On Monday, sheriff's department officials sent prosecutors their case, which also says a tequila bottle was found in Gibson's car when he was pulled over on the Pacific Coast Highway."
