    For Tesla "hot rod sound"

    Just play the intro to Van Halen's Hot For Teacher full volume, it has that lumpy cam sound to it. They'll move.

    Funny things said in Court

    Got this from a friend who's wife, like mine, is a court reporter. These are from a book called Disorder in the American Courts and are things people actually said in court, word for word, taken down and published by court reporters that had the torment of staying calm while these exchanges...

    Omega Boats - quality? Problems? Rumors?

    that's just shitty workmanship. The only job that center 'stringer' has is to hold the floor up, having it 3/4 below the top of the stringers is pretty funny actually. Nice little dip in the floor to retain water.
