serutan and serotonin

  1. Ads. Eggs. Ads on eggs. Ads on eggs? AAADDSSS OONNNN EGGGSSSS! (via AdJab)
  2. The CPSC would like to warn you about the sunroom roof glass… …OF DOOM!
  3. Hey Torgo! Your Industrial Art Gallery made it on to Bibliodyssey! And rightly so.
  4. Hacking for money got this guy in severe trouble for only 61 grand in revenue, and that was the prosecutor’s estimate. He would have been better off knocking over liquor stores.
  5. The 30 second bunny treatment is now applied to Night of the Living Dead.
  6. You may get a car guy boner for this 600 HP 392 MOPAR engine, but to me it’s a sign of how dead and stupid American car engineering is. Welcome back to 1970.

    have you driven a car with a big block(*) in it? oodles of low end torque is a lot of fun.
    (*) this and most of the other crate motors in production aren’t true big blocks — they are bored and stroke small blocks, with big block displacements.

      Yeah, I’ve felt that torque. Those are the cars of my childhood! And they were loads of fun.
      Big displacement low-tech 70s style engines like that are a march into the past, though. You can do so much more with less now, and trying to stay in a “retro” permanent 1970 forever feels like an admission of defeat on the part of the U.S. auto industry.
      But yeah. Vroom.

  2. You have to admit that the new engine in the Corvette Z06 is pretty impressive, it puts out 505hp with a 7.0 litre displacement and gets 27mpg on the freeway. All for 65k… not bad considering the 0-60 of 3.6 and a rev limited topspeed of 197.
