The record at my local go-kart

Shows the Silver Award... and that's it.

Thank you stranger. Shows the award.

When you come across a feel-good thing.

For an especially amazing showing.









  1. Just here to say that I am so glad you are finally getting proper treatment. I deal with issues myself and know how difficult it is to get an accurate diagnosis.

  2. Americans disapprove of Congress as a whole: they give them a single-digit approval rating.

  3. What you need is a better teacher. US schools let teachers who suck at math teach the basic middle school courses and they do a terrible job.

  4. Sheldon Cooper opined that the fact that your asshole burns after eating spicy food means your anal sphincter has taste buds.

  5. Jesus, man, too soon. It only just happened - takeaway seven, borrow from the two... TWENTY-FIVE YEARS AGO?!

  6. How many potatoes does it take to kill an Irishman?

  7. Ferrari are brilliant, really. So often, comedy does not travel internationally, but Ferrari can make people laugh all around the world.

  8. When Ayrton Senna got to heaven, he had a question for God.

  9. Enzo died the year before; having the Ferraris finish 1-2 in the Italian GP was an outrageously fortuitous result. It was the only race McLaren did not win that year.

  10. It's a reference to "two girls, one cup." Do NOT look for that.

  11. The most awe-inspiring time to me is sunrise. I have crewed a number of 24-hour races, and when night ends and dawn breaks, you feel as if you have made it, and then you realise that there are still some ten hours to go....

  12. You don't need to get rid of your feelings. You feel what you feel.

  13. My father-in-law, who was at the time 70+ years old and a retired Anglican vicar, was a huge player of the original Age of Empires. He showed it to me when we visited on holiday. II came out that next year, and I tried it and saw what an improvement was, so when we visited again, I gave him II as an unbirthday present.

  14. The books are the greatest historical fiction ever written. Your Dad has good taste.

  15. Have you read the Horatio Hornblower series? Curious how they compare.

  16. Good news: it's not the battery you would be using, but the car's alternator. The only thing a car battery does is furnish the power to start the car's engine. Once the engine is running, the alternator provides all the power to run everything electrical.

  17. Not very. Certainly far less than average. I take every individual one at a time and treat them all the same except that I go out of my way to offer a friendly smile and a greeting to people unlike me, as I live in a very racist area and I want people unlike me (an old white guy) to know that at least one old white guy is not as bad as most old white people they meet.

  18. That idler pulley is jumping like that because one of the elements in the system is putting a sudden stopping force on the belt. The ticking you hear is whatever bearing is at fault, I think. Next step is to use a mechanic's stethoscope to listen to each element in the system: the alternator, A/C compressor, power steering pump, water pump if it's in the system, and even the idler pulley itself. The ticking of the bad bearing will be very loud when you put the stethoscope on the component with the faulty bearing.

  19. I always wonder how many just pretend to believe so they fit in.
