Dude, you're a genius!

Wonder if you could just set up a mail server and spoof .edu addresses. Hmmmnm.....

By the way, today was particularly lousy so I took a quick picture for those that had never seen metering lights. This is what you wait in at the on ramp to get on the freeway, 3 lanes of people just stopped:

Would spray paint hold up against the abuse on the valve cover?

You're right, it wouldn't have been.

But alas, banks don't take kindly to their compliance personnel showing up with a bad case of helmet hair, and I felt incredibly awkward getting ready in the work bathroom.

Shorter haircut then. We've been over this.

Well, that or go for a better hair style in general.

Hahahaha Ed, that new sig quote is hilarious.

Dino, you won't have much chance with ANY type of paint unless you completely strip off the crappy coating. It's not as easy as it looks, unfortunately.

That's a big part of why I sold my bike when I moved up here. Between the significant chance of dying due to the sheer volume of inadequate drivers, and the fact that I'd have to pack up clothes to change into and unstick my hair from my forehead when I got there just killed the fun.

Although if I could split lanes I might reconsider...
