    No I haven't seen that but I've seen a little footage of drone racing online. I'll check it out.

    I didn't get to play with the drone down in Baja as much as I wanted but I did video some of the places we stayed along the way. Learning pretty quick what you can and can't do and how to get set up for action shots, which isn't all that easy.

    You had problems mowing a yard. You should stick to the basics. You can't handle the complexities of "zip ties".

    Kids couldn't wait until tonight when it would be full. We had to do a family plunge.

    The pool dimensions are 5 ft by 12 ft. It's made for 1 person. We have a chess timer clock where you only get 10 minutes of water time and then your time is up. We put the pool 6 inches from the house. We needed more backfill dirt, so we dug out under the foundation and filled that with styrofoam. We decided not to use a pump, I'm just hooking up my blower. And I finally decided on a pool heater:

    I put those toilets that can flush a bucket of golf balls in my house... they work pretty good.

    3 months ago my wife called me and said and I quote, "Ok hunny, I have something to tell you that you aren't going to like, so please don't be mad at me ok?"

    I say: "ehhh, what exactly did you do?"

    She says: "Well I accidently dropped a large tube of toothpaste into the toilet."

    I say: "That's no big deal, just suck it up, reach down into the bowl and get it out."

    She says: "Well, that's the part you aren't going to like. I was flushing the toilet when I dropped the tube."

    At this point I'm thinking, "What the hell were you doing with a tube of toothpaste while hovering over the toilet anyway?" but I let the thought go for the time being.

    I say: "Are you freaking serious? Is the toilet stopped up? Is it overflowing? Did the tube get stuck where you might could reach down there and maybe grab it?"

    She says: "I already tried hunny, its gone. The toilet is not overflowing or anything, and it flushed."

    I say: "Well hell, don't do anything else, and don't flush it again. I'll come home and see what I can do."

    Later I get home, grab the long springy thing that you stick down in there to unclog the drain and go into the bathroom. Toilet looks fine, so I figure I might as well see what happens before starting. I flush it and it flushes normally and refills with no issue. Frankly I was shocked. The thing swallowed a full tube of Colgate without even a hiccup. I lingered for about 15 minutes, then came back into the living room, found my wife. Told her it was a pain in the ass to fix, but I took care of it and to be more careful in the future.

    This is my everyday utility knife. I use it for things like cutting twine, slicing an apple or impaling Huns.

    My birthday present arrived a little early fella's. Big thanks to the Wife for helping me find this thing and get it home.
    It's a 2009 Shelby Gt 500 with less than 9,400 miles on it. Mint condition, one owner. It has been modified and I am still sorting everything out on the car as the dealer where I bought it doesn't want to give me the build sheet. I'm sure it has something to do with information sharing practices and I certainly understand that. A couple of things I have found on my own are that it has had the pulley's changed on the supercharger. It has a 127mm JLT cold air intake and was tuned by Steeda Motorsports who specializes in Shelby's and Mustangs in general.

    The salesmen who took the car on trade, for new Shelby GT350, said the car owner told him it makes over 700HP.....I aim to find out soon by putting it on a local shops dyno.
    upload_2016-7-24_19-45-46.png
    The color is Magnetic Gray with Silver stripes, it's riding on 20" Steeda Spider wheels wrapped in brand new Nitto 275/35/20 up front and 315/35/20 in the rear and will smoke them into 4th gear, and turn them into putty from a standing start....this much I know to be true:headbang:

    Exhaust is I believe handled by MagnaFlow 3" through a catless set up
    The hood is made of aluminum and has functional heat extractors.

    Laugh all you want but this car will probably not be driven more than 2,000-2,500 miles a year. My wife said why do you want it then. I said to stand outside next to it and drink beer while I wash it....She said good, could you get mine also while you're at it.....
    upload_2016-7-24_20-21-5.png
    upload_2016-7-24_20-22-7.png
    I'll try to post up a couple of quick videos of the supercharger and exhaust sounds in the next couple of days..

    Sure, let's see,
    Hey Honey, some guy named Cooter on the internet want's to see a picture of you. He seems ok but his avatar is an Ape with a swollen nutsack, and he seems to have a lot of problems with sticky keys on his laptop.....

    She ask if you had a girlfriend, wife or even a boyfriend.....I told her I didn't think so but occasionally he, URG and T Gator have Wesson Oil parties......She said then he needs to go f vck himself.. :lol2:
    I guess that means no....

    :lol: Well, I try to work smarter not harder. I have all 56 posts, including 4 huge gate posts in place (you can see one in the pic below). It took me 2 weeks. The gas powered digger was clutch, but the thing is damn heavy. So I drilled about 15 holes, then spent the next few days setting those posts.

    Next step is installing the wire mesh. Since I live in a house full of females, I have to figure out a way to do it myself. I air stapled one end of the wire fence up, then rigged the other end with a 2x4 sandwich and a pull winch connected to my trailer hitch.
    [​IMG]

    About halfway "streched" tight:
    [​IMG]

    And cranked tight:
    [​IMG]

    That wire was pulled so tight you could play it like a guitar. Then I just came back and air stapled to the posts.

    There is an absurd amount of pull on that first post. So I put on a temporary diagonal backstay and quickly installed those horizontal boards just to stabilize it.

    Only 600 more feet to go. :bananaburn:

    Almost finished with our outdoor entertainment area. Not fair to call it a kitchen, as I did not do a drop in grill. I just need to do some touchup painting. Still undecided on a backsplash. It would be a royal PIA to install one.

    I'm sitting here in the a/c drinking a big glass of iced tea watching the ass hole next door mowing his lawn. It must be 110 out there.

    Update.....I almost hate to admit it but it looks like talking has worked somewhat. All A's and B's on the 1st 9 weeks report card, nothing but green(good) to purple(outstanding) on his daily classroom behavior reports. I was also surprised today when he received a medal from the Jiu Jitsu instructor for best technique and winning his class in takedowns and ground control....I'm still keeping my fingers crossed though just in case...

    To say I'm disappointed in your choice of lawncare equipment would be an understatement Brad. I fully expected to see something a little more "elite" like this.
