We are living in the future...

So this is what the gurus thought a home computer would look like in 2004!
;D ;D

P.S.
Dawn, please pull this if the BBS doesn't want us to post pics.  I just thought it was funny.

Aaahhhhhh...

That explains the wheel....  (and all the dials, leave it to analytical Renee to start asking all the 'why' questions).

I don't care, I still love it.

40. Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate, but powerful beyond measure. We were all meant to shine, as children do. When our light shines, we liberate others.

Oh well, might as well let Chris have his laugh at my expense.  Ever since I wapped him last summer he calls me the submarine captain. I don't know if I'll ever live it down.  :)

I was over reading your post about stunts and safety.  That's a pretty damning report by Inside Edition. I wonder if they'd bother to listen to anyone telling them about safety.

How's your knee?

I was wondering the -whole- while, what that "captain" thing was about... :o  I missed it..

With the level of Competition on the street, it's pretty fitting that these guys Chose the #1 part in the #1 Stunnas,......

There's still remaining a bunch of seasoned street riders heading up other clubs and known to have concerns, "Deaths on the streets" has been a pretty hott topic in Chicago for the past 4-5 months, But it really just comes and goes.. (the number of "grim fatalities", thats what gets the attention, "someone saw it" death) everyone knows (if youve been around for a while) In CHICAGO this year, last year (nearby) Indiana, Wisconsin... The traffic death toll was up...
I was one of the VAST majority, I risked my life for nothing when you add it up (maybe), I want to issue a serious public "call out" when the time comes (now) That "how can you truly be the best if you havent beaten everyone" and TO ANSWER THE QUESTION, NO, I dont know if EVERYONE can be reached, But the vast majority shouldnt take more than 7-9 yrs to "turn"...  

And also, I like the XSBA/FormulaUsa... And I like that CCS had a STUNT SHOW in 04...

And Inside Edition has to keep the ratings, I dont knock them, they are one of my favs, but I now KNOW 1ST HAND the dealings of, lessay local Chicago TV news reporters requesting and conducting interviews only to air perfect examples of why the word "edit" is in their name... it's in the game...


The knee is, really, going really good, but,.... starting rehab now.. we start to really push it this week..

Nite..

The frame was snapped, the #3 rod was dangling from a hole in the cases, and what was left had been consumed by fire.  I said, "Hey, we've got all night!"
