I just can't believe someone would wrap an expensive car unless it was to be peeled off on Christmas morning....

So found my little Lamborghini buddy on the way home (no pictures) as I damn near made it look like a close chase.
Afterwards I realized how hard I had to work for it and I decided it was down to being a little too reckless since I was pushing it to almost 7k RPM in a 16 year old BMW

Ah, no worries. I was at 7000RPM two weeks ago more than a couple of times merging into I35 traffic with 387,000 miles on the engine. It's never the internals that concern me with the engine as long as I know I've got sufficient oil pressure. It's the accessories that will get you, like water pumps and alternators. Besides, those higher fuel flows help clean the intake valves.

In my understanding, Yemen Houthis launched the missiles into Riyadh from Yemen.

The attacks came as Saudi Arabia hosted a Formula E championship on the outskirts of Riyadh, which state media said was attended by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

Yeah they came out of Yemen (Houthi) are the proxies of Iran and since Biden has stopped weapons sales (used to destroy launch sites) to KSA there has been a noticeable increase. We'll see how far it escalates...

I don't think Biden is stupid, he has dementia.

I think the people that voted for him are stupid.
