Random thoughts because I am bored.

1. I just passed my Pilot in Command checkride for the military last night (same thing as making Captain in the Airlines)

2. How about that Pagani Zonda? I would sell Jeph's left nut for the car!

3. I made a couple ahi tuna steaks on the grill and they turned out entirely too dry.

4. Screw it...I'm going for a drive. Nothing like blowing $3.20 gallon gas out the pipe! Woohoo!

Congrats on passing the test.

Ahi is tough to get right!

Rail, Jeph confided in me a couple of weeks ago due to his unbearable burden of shame. He doesn't have a left nut. He must live with the fact that he's the only male human being with two right nuts. That's why he looks so goofy when dancing in those google videos.

You had better plan on hocking another one of his body parts for the Zonda.

1. Congrats. If you ever lose your bearings up there, just remember that flying a plane is no different than riding a bicycle, just a lot harder to put baseball cards in the spokes.

2. If I drove a Zonda, I think staring at the dash layout and materials for more than 20 seconds would drive me insane.

3. Yeah, it's hard not to do that with grilled Tuna, which is why it's best served as sushi.

4. Do you have access to cheaper gas on base? Do they have high octane? or do you sneak over at night and fill up on jet fuel in the hanger?

How come you didn't post that pic of your num-chuck wielding cousin from West Virginia to this thread? I think you should use it as your avatar.

Hi,

For the Best Ahi, try brushing some Cold Pressed Virgin Olive Oil on it about 20 min. prior to putting it on the Grill, this will Marinate, Moisturize and Seal it while cooking. Also, VERY high heat for just 3-4 min. per side depending upon the thickness - works every time. Hope this helps...

BTW, congrats on the Command achievement, now if you got your C-Quals, you'd be better than an Airline Capt....

So far as the Zonda goes - Your Dreams can come true, it can happen to you...

Happy Motoring!... Jim'99

Randall, Right nuts don't go for as much so I guess I will have to sell both of them. If he ever logs back in, please break the news. However, it is for a good cause.

MN, Thanks for the Ahi help...I will definately try that.

SD, Gas isn't cheaper on base these days. The days of "military benefits" have come and gone. Ok, that isn't entirely true...I do get all expense paid vacations to crap holes all over the world. Regarding the Zonda: Dude, I don't know if you would even have time to look at the dash. I watched a test drive and that car is insane....twin turbo Mercedes V12! Talk about a kick in the nuts (or empty sack for Jeph when I sell them for the car).

Here is WV numchuk wielding cousin...apologies to all you West Virginians. He is really making the cash these days! Gives new meaning to the term "Mouth Breather."

Randall, I thought I could trust you. (Holy cow, I laughed hard at that.)

Rail, you really need your own blog! Good stuff...

The Zonda just doesn't do it for me in the slightest bit. In the world of Supercar-dom, I can't see further than your typical Ferrari.

DRN, signing off...

(that's double-right nut, lay-folk)

Perfect lap: what part of Jersey? I travel quite a bit to Princeton and went to prep school (1992) in Long Branch. Love Jersey....can't afford to live there though. The dollar doesn't seem to go very far.

I attached some of my clips. When I am not driving my Box, or defending freedom I play a little ping pong.

Do you guys remember Tony Kukoch from his Chicago Bulls days? Well, prior to becoming a good basketball player, he was the Junior Nation Champion Ping-pong player in his homeland- Croatia.

Well the Pink Panther did have quite a reach, I bet that was a pretty good advantage he'd have!

I'm not ping pong slouch either, I actually was Wisconsin State Fair Champ one summer when I was 14.

If you look real close up into the grandstands of Ping Pong clip #4 you can see Bubba Whathisnutz. Bubba certainly is a fascinating individual....

He is a very complex study in human behavior. The depths of his character run deep.
