No title, or real point.

Today on my way back into the office from lunch, I made a fascinating discovery: the highest volume setting on my car stereo is 39. Why 39? Couldn't we have just rounded up to a nice, even number like 40? What happened to the days when the top volume was 10? I don't think that the radios played quieter then, did they?

Anyway, the whole 39 thing annoyed me...but not as much as the fact that I don't have hydraulics on my whip. Is it too much to ask to be able to pancake it when I park it like it's hot? Maybe Santa will bring me hydraulics for Christmas. I'm not even asking for a fancy, 16-switch system. I don't care about the front and back, or side to side. I just want to be able to pancake it. Also, orange ground effects, and an air horn that plays Dixie. That should confuse people a bit.

Damn. No matter how hard I try, I still sound like the white guy that I am. My street cred? Zero.

Nigel: "You see, most blokes will be playing at 10. You’re on 10, all the way up, all the way up...Where can you go from there? Nowhere. What we do, is if we need that extra push over the cliff...Eleven. One louder." DiBergi: "Why don’t you just make 10 louder and make 10 be the top number, and make that a little louder?" Nigel (after taking a moment to let this sink in): "These go to 11."
The funniest line from the funniest movie of all-time.
I disagree. In Leonard Part 6 when the lobsters were advancing on Bill Cosby and he pulls out the butter and starts telling the lobsters how they are going to taste -- that's the funniest line from the funniest movie ever. That or when he jumps off the building on the osterich -- but that's not really a line but more of an action.

tried to embed it but didn't work....
