This just boggles the mind. I thought stuff like this was done with computer graphics programs. This guy is brilliant.
And I’ll bet he has one hell of an income.

Vehicles: Feeling Less Than Chipper

I misplaced the spare key for my motorcycle. As everyone knows, the only way to find it is to get a replacement. How much could it be?

Pretty pricey: I had to pay 90 bucks because the key incorporates a microchip that is programmed to start only my bike.

Driving: My Road Rage Is Gone . . .

My Road Rage Is Gone . . .I no longer have problems with road rage. You may not have known I had issues with road rage. However, since I picked up my new bike, people no longer seem to annoy me any more. Maybe I have mellowed or maybe they have just learned to drive better. Just wanted to let you know I’m over all of that now.

 

 

 

Peace Through Superior Firepower.

Life: Rock ‘n’ Roll Ain’t Noise Pollution

Years ago I asked myself what was my favorite spot on Earth. I concluded it was probably my own backyard. So peaceful and quiet.

It is not sounding like that that anymore. When I tally up all of the things going on in the neighborhood that make noise, the only time everything was really quiet was the day after the big hurricane. Otherwise, on a daily basis I am treated to any or all of the following sound annoyances:

1. Trimmers.
2. Clippers.
3. Chippers.
4. Chain saws.
5. Dogs.
6. Delivery trucks.
7. Trash trucks.
8. Tractor trailers.
9. Lawn mowers.
10. Demolition cans.
11. Borough heavy equipment.
12. Firehouse sirens.
13. Fire engines.
14. Police sirens.
15. Ambulance sirens.
16. Courthouse carillon show tunes (hourly!).
17. 611 Bypass traffic.
18. High school band practice and football games.
19. Private planes.
20. Hospital medevac helo.
21. HS football game helo.
22. Cicadas.
23. Leaf blowers.
24. Power saws.
25. Construction/renovation.

Oddly, the birds are pretty quiet. I guess they can’t compete. And the children don’t make much noise either.

I must be retarred.

I should just put on my shooter’s “ears” and shaddup….
