Skullnerd needs to drive

Seriously, I haven’t been out driving for a couple months now.  Yes, I’ve driven from home to whatever destination I need to go to, but I haven’t been DRIVING.  The crappy part about the limited income that I have right now is that I can’t really afford to put gas into the Thunderbird.  Not in the quantities that I would need to go out and do some frivolous drive for the sake of driving type driving.

Road Rule #3: High Beams are to be Used at all Times.

I love driving.  I love the night.  I absolutely detest driving at night.  I used to enjoy it.  The lack of people on the roads, the lack of sun burning me if I’m driving west, and not needing the air conditioning running full blast in order to keep the car cool. Continue reading

Why is this on now?

So, it’s two in the morning.  I’m bored, and flipping through the channels.  I don’t know why, but I stop on A&E.  Normally when that happens its something shiny that catches my eye and gets me watching.  This time, I have no idea of what it could have been.  It’s a show about cyberbullying.

Road Rule #2: You must slow down to merge.

Calgary has recently been talking about putting up speed cameras on Deerfoot Trail in an attempt to decrease the number of accidents.  While yes, speeding is a problem, it’s by far low man on the totem pole.

Road Rule #1: Cellphones are a stupid stick.

Apparently people are unable to drive when they have a cell phone stapled to their head. I just don’t get it. I have a cell phone. It’s my primary means of communication. I don’t have a land line. I talk on my cell phone when I drive (GASP).

Are You Fucking Kidding Me?

Note that this was originally published on Facebook, but as I am getting rid of my account, I decided to put it up here.

So I’m flipping through the channels tonight (dead time between battlestar and flashpoint sucks) and I see a flash of the playstation logo. I figure what the hell, I’m bored, let’s see what’s new in video games. So I switch back. Turns out, its a Fifth Estate episode, and they are talking about how video games are a soulless evil empire.

Summer Sucks, Winter Rules…

Please note, this was originally published on Facebook, but as I am deleting my Facebook account, I decided to move it here.

As I was standing outside at 2:00 in the morning having my last smoke of the night before going to bed (that’s because I’m a retard and think that 2am is the right time to go to bed on a work night), I realized what makes me so happy about winter. Continue reading

I Can Never Own a Viper

Please note: I originally published this on Facebook, but as I am deleting my account, I figured I would move it here.

Well, I can own one, but I couldn’t ever drive it, so what’s the point?

My dad and I went out this weekend, and he says to me that there is a 2004 Viper sitting at Automaxx. We should go check it out. So we do. Now, for those of you that don’t know, the Viper has been my all time dream car since I was like, 13. I have 18 die-cast metal models of the Viper in 1:18 scale, and a bunch of smaller ones too. The viper that they have at Automaxx is silver. Beautiful car. My dad and I are walking around it, looking, trying to see if it’s ever been in an accident, of course we aren’t going to buy it. Just looking. I open the door, and I’m surprised that it’s not locked, but oh well. I’ll just try sitting in it. Heh.

I’m 6’2, 240 lbs. I move most vehicle seats as far back as they can go. I have troubles getting into my Porsche because the seat, as far back as it can go, is too close to the steering wheel. So, trying to get into a Viper for me is like trying to fit a size 12 foot into a size 10 shoe. I had to fold myself up just to get in. I didn’t even try to get my legs in because I was worried I wouldn’t get out. And my head is hitting the roof. Then I look out the windshield. All I see is hood, and about 2 inches of ground. In order for me to drive that car I would have to lean forward.

So, although I still love the car, and I think that it’s a great piece of engineering, like a fat man in a speedo, it’s just not meant to be.
