Ratty Muscle Cars

Remember when old cars were just, old? When a scratch in the paint or a door ding didn’t matter? Somewhere along the line people lost sight of that and instead redefined them as garage queens or objects of status. Austin Griggs, the founder of RattyMuscleCars.com seeks to change that by showcasing to the world how your old, rusty and dilapidated car might just be the best way to enjoy one of the greatest hobbies the world has ever seen.

Grabbing a threatening pistol

A lot of people think that if you grab the slide and fire the pistol it will seriously cut you or even break your fingers. To show everyone that it can be done without losing any of your fingers we decided to film it.

A Redditor replies: Lesson, grabbing the slide stops the 2nd bullet from loading. You had better make sure you push it out of your way because the 1st bullet is firing, grab or not. It is then that you must act to prevent the 2nd bullet from being racked, take advantage of the lack of fire, confusion, to beat the fuck out of the would be killer. If you succeed in wresting it from his grip, don’t forget to rack it, again, to load and kill him.

Slinks

After a few days of stifling 90° heat, we will have a couple more hot and muggy days until the weather gets tired and we are returned to the more enjoyable mid 80s. We can now come out of air conditioned homes and enjoy nature once again. Unless you have to work. Sorry. The weather will wait until you get off and the Slinks will be right here. If you don’t have to work, why not dive in right now?

Frankly speaking

The Tundra is back and it didn’t need brakes. They said there’s plenty of meat left on the pads front and rear. The noise I was hearing was from a bent sheet metal shield around the rear u-joint (?) It was either straightened out, or removed altogether. That work cost 80 bucks in labor.

The tailgate handle was broken and I had them fix it. They replaced it with a new genuine Toyota part to the tune of 90 bucks. Jee-zus! It’s plastic for Chry-sakes. Of course the labor about half that price. $90 for a new plastic handle, $50 to install it. 80 bucks for the sheet metal work and inspection. Thank goodness I don’t own an Escalade pickup. (Why were those even made?)

Special congrats to my #1 son and his wife on the birth of their newborn son, Graham. Kid was a 9-pounder with a full head of hair. From the pics we were sent, he’s perfect in every way. Kinda looks like me when I get out of the shower.

The mouse (the one with the wire) arrived yesterday for use with old beater iMac. Next step is to try the password possibles that my son gave me and see if I can log in. If successful, I’ll check the files for those that he may want to save. Then it’s finding a strain of Linux that will work with the machine. There will be a intermediary stop and visit to iFixit.com for directions on hard drive removal and replacement. I have my work cut out for me. Actually, I love doing that shit.

On Sunday, if I don’t get distracted, I’ll update the Weekly Babes from 2012. They’re all there, it just takes some time. The galleries are all there and intact down to 2008, which is a partial. The complete update will takes hours, but I’ll try to make some sense of it all when the job’s finished.

One last thought: this getting old shit sucks. I’m still relatively healthy but my stamina is no longer what it was. Phooey!

Thanks a lot for stopping by. I love doing all this shit. Except getting old. If you can at all avoid it, do so.

Photoshop Phonies

Every week we present six days of genuine images, pictures and videos. Fridays are reserved for those pics that ain’t real, but are, in fact, fake, phony and any other synonym for sham. Ungenuine. Put that in your spellchecker dictionary.

Hit it.
