Strange things make me happy...

On my way to work this morning I saw something you don't often see these days.  At first I thought I was hallucinating, but sure enough I was staring a a mint condition YUGO:

YUGO

Unfortunately, this was the best photo I could get.  It's hard to take pictures in stop and go traffic when you're driving a car with a manual transmission.  The photo doesn't do the car justice, the YUGO appeared to be in mint condition.  Considering that these cars looked ten yeas old within a week of driving them off the dealer's lot, this specimen was truly remarkable.  Maintaining a YUGO can't be easy (what with the abject lack of spares available), so the guy driving it must really love this car.  I must say, driving one of these in the greater Los Angeles Area is one bold fucking statement.  I have nothing but respect for the brave soul that pilots this YUGO.

I felt like I caught a glimpse of some long extinct animal when I saw this car.  Kind of like spotting a coelacanth on your morning commute or something.  Strangely enough, this sighting made me happy for the rest of the day.  Yes, I've got serious problems...

Naruto fandom goes horribly wrong

Ok, we want to run the drug dealers out of our neighborhood, so what would be the best way to go about it?  I know, NINJUTSU!

Clifton police said they arrested two men dressed liked ninjas and armed with Asian martial arts weapons who said they were sending a warning to drug users.


Sounds like a solid plan, right?  It seems that law enforcement didn't think so, and they threw the shinobi into the clink.  Just another example of the man keeping ninjas down...

Inaugural Post - My new Ride

Since this is my first post and all, I figured that now would be a good time to post a photo of my new ride...

Rapid Death

She's a fine example of a 1977 Yamaha RD 400, and her name is "Rapid Death".  I've wanted an RD 400 for about twenty years now, and I've got to say that I'm well pleased with this bike.  Definitely worth the 20 year wait...
