wiring schematic

"schematic" is a funny word to me. i have yet to mess with any major rewiring on my bikes. this makes it look easy and even fun.

best of "the general"

he's one of the most polarizing figures in sports. funny yet pathetic. love him or hate him. idiot or genius? definitely legend status.

thursdays with maiden

i always thought this photo was hilarious.

"wrathchild" is my favorite maiden song.

i knew that maiden frontman bruce dickinson was an pilot, but this is kind of interesting. i lifted it from his wikipeida entry.

"In the summer of 2006, Dickinson flew about 200 UK citizens home from Lebanon during the Israel/Hezbollah conflict. On 12 February 2007, Dickinson was given permission to fly Rangers F.C. to Israel for their UEFA Cup game against Hapoel Tel Aviv. Dickinson asked if he could pilot this flight as soon as he found Astraeus had the contract for it. After the collapse of XL Airways UK in September 2008 he piloted an Iceland Express aeroplane and flew home 180 stranded holiday makers from Egypt, as well as a Boeing 747 with a group of british RAF pilots from Afghanistan. "A lot of them recognised him because they are Maiden fans, but he was there in his professional capacity as a pilot," says an RAF spokesman."

hidden rooms

once i heard a story about some skaters in SF knocking down some walls in their apartment. they discovered extra rooms and moved people into the space. were not trying to rent out our stairwell, but some extra storage space doesn't hurt. i was hoping to find some cool stuff in the sealed off area, like maybe a few thousand dollars, a joint, or some porn. that would have made this post more exciting.
