poem about nothing

 I did everything I could
- which was nothing.
So there’s nothing left to do
- but do nothing.
In the place where you stood
- now there’s nothing.
Where there used to be you
- there’s just nothing.
When I wake up, beside me
- there’s nothing.
To fill up my time
- I’ve got nothing.
In my gut, deep inside me
- there’s nothing
except you. Girl, I tried
- it meant nothing.
When you left me,
you left me with nothing.

As I was heading back to work after taking the bike out for a ride over my lunch hour some twitchy dude in a riced out WRX pulls up next to me at a in town stop light.

We're the first in line at the light on a 4 lane road and he's giving me the stink eye as he revs his car, begging me to race him. I nod and blip the throttle a couple of times. He hunkers in, waiting for the light to change as he revs a bit more. The light changes and he's off like a bat outta hell, squealing his tires in first and second. I mosey on along at a nice leisurely pace, never even breaking the 40 mph speed limit, laughing my ass off.

Where's a cop when you need one!?

I wasn't about to race this jerk in town. Besides, his car had not one but two spoilers. What chance would Connie have against two spoilers?    ::)

I liked the Plymouth Superbird more than the Dodge Daytona Charger.

I had an Plymouth Superbird Aurora HO scale slot car and one brother had a Daytona Charger.  Both could sail off the track majestically should a liberal amount of speed be applied...

I had AFX cars back in the 70's. Just before I stopped using them, they came out with cars that used the motor magnets to adhere to the steel wires in the track, you could nail the throttle all the way around the track and never come off. No fun, no skill involved. Now, back to nothing. 

I think the slower cyclic rate of the M2 .50 caliber is sexy. I think the MG42 is demonic. I think the M61 Vulcan is a look at hell.

I think the slower cyclic rate of the M2 .50 caliber is sexy. I think the MG42 is demonic. I think the M61 Vulcan is a look at hell.
And the M242 Chaingun (the real Bushmaster 25mm) makes the Ma Deuce look like a dehydrated .22 :)  Standard version 1, 100, and 200 RPM, beef up the motor to 5 HP and yuo double that rate.  Incredibly powerfull and with all the gee whiz bang 'lectronic sight and ranging aids deadly accurate at ranges that are mind numbing.  Put in a box of AP DU rounds and nothing rolling within sight is safe...  Imagine sitting on top of a Bradley in an indoor range (Pictinny Arsenal) up on the turret doing 100 RPMs.  Ever see a dog hanging it's head outside a car window at sixty??

And yes, the M2s rate of fire is awesome, but then again so was the M60, when it was properly headspaced, which was seldom due to the rotating locking method used.  If I had a dime for every barrel and bolt I replaced.  I was as happy as said hound dog when the M240B came out.  I was madder than a hornet when the US bowed to NATO pressure and went to the M9, luckily SOCOM kept the 1911 option open, which is still in use today by todays finest, albeit in the form of a Kimber of NM version, but still dropping bad guys over 100 years after it's intro to the world...  And then we have the M3A1 Grease gun (M3 had a failure prone charging lever, A1 variant just cut a large opening on the outside front portion of the bolt).  The M3 took an artist to fire effectively as it had a climbing rate of fire, being as it fired from the open bolt position (massive bolt) the first shot invariably went low, second shot high, and with much control the rounds eventually found there way to the target.  I think it was designed for tankers to convince them to keep their tanks on the tracks and in good working order.  I'll save older machine guns and mortars for later, but in closing, canning the 4.2 was akin to replacing the M60.

There is a movie being shot in Vancouver that is huge. They have money to burn. There were 650 extras plus the cast crew up on our local mountain for a shot of some kind. The working title is Nautilus. It is actually a new Godzilla movie. One scene involved a helicopter and I can still hear it going up and down tonight.
The next big one is called Tomorrowland. Disney. Heard it may be the biggest movie ever made here. Scheduled for a 5 month shoot.
