It’s Sunday and spring has gone missing for the first day in May. We’re back down in the 40s at night and middle 50s during the day. The Cubs are considering Carhartt uniforms. Whatever flowers came up last week are now chattering their pistils and stamens together. So we stay inside once again either watching a ballgame or pounding on the computer keyboard. Like what’s below. No pounding, just clicking.

Sorry folks, but the Brew Review became overrun by family members consuming beers and wielding conversation to no end. I had made the trip to Binny’s and purchased a worthy contender in the rain. It will be saved for another week.
At first, #2 son with his wife and offspring came by to look at wedding pics that we had received and also to discuss a potential new car purchase. He had brought over some 3Floyds beers and soon the conversation switched to other subjects that I thought would never come up. I refrained from his offer of barley beverages and decided to wait until they had gone home. It got later and later and they finally left.
But soon after that exodus the Dark Lord Day boys arrived at the door with their tales of deathly black stouts, variants, rain and characters from the midwest craft beer crowd. In that state of mind, they all talked over each other and it was hard to understand anything amid the din of words. The wife went through her routine of scolding them for drinking and then offered food and a bed to sleep. Only one took her up on the offer.
Dark Lord Day was another miserable weather day down in Munster, India with rain falling the entire time they were there. I decided to forgo the experience due to the aging process which has settled in my body. And, I hardly ever have a taste for thick, black Russian imperial stouts anymore. I have three years worth of DLs and others in storage and no one to share them with.
I’m thinking of making Faves a daily feature. I enjoy watching videos from past posts as I’m sure you do. So we’ll ratchet up a notch and post nine daily posts instead of eight. Also, and this may come to be if I remember, we should feature some babe model as our Humpday Honey once per month.
Then we’ll build roads. And bridges. And skyscrapers.
Thanks for stopping by.
It’s Friday and they’re here again. No need to decide Nat or Not… they’re all fake.
They’re quick. Like a bunny. It’s been years since you last heard that phrase, I bet.

With a little expertise, you could easily give a small car some breakneck speed with a powerful motorcycle engine.
Mad scientist Colin Furze describes his contraption: “What a creation, it’s an unhinged flying bike/human blender but unbelievably it gets off the ground and actually flies.”
Any task can be turned into a contest or race. Here the contestants lop limbs off of simulated trees.
The engine sounds reminded me of this excited kid: (Fave)
A trailer for the psychological thriller “Ghost Tits” — the story of a man whose life is turned upside down when his girlfriend’s breasts suddenly disappear.
Looks like Olivia Munn was perfectly happy with her body when she appeared in this.

At the speed that they are going, you wouldn’t think crashes could be so spectacular.
Taofledermaus tests some level I fiberglass ballistic paneling. This is normally used for protecting judges and fortifying safe-rooms- protecting families from tornadoes etc. but really isn’t used as actual body armor.
Jiffs are not Skippy, but they could be considered to be. Especially when they ‘skip’ and start over. Pfft! More beer.
The bike races each one in turn. Damn good results.
Braun Industries teamed up with CAPE Testing to conduct the Fire/EMS industry’s first rollover ambulance crash test. They crashed a 10 year old unit in a test which focused on the modular body and roll impact loading, or how well the box holds up in the event of a rollover.
Complete with a crash test dummy on a gurney. However, no crash test EMTs were found. All people involved in the video were each billed for $1500 for ambulance service. Pfft!
The 2016 Ford Mustang Cobra Jet gets built piece-by-piece. I think this is a Ford sponsored specialty team and the car is either for display or for racing.
