Had two black cars, don't want another one. Current dark blue is difficult enough keeping clean.

I still get a kick out of the tilt shift effect. I love the toy car look.

Howdy folks. Spam is a subject like rap music. Either someone likes it or hates it. Few are undecided.

had a couple of black 911's. they are a pain to keep clean. this car is a one owner, 6500 mile beauty. i'll probably get it wrapped to protect the paint. and it probably wont be black.

Wow! Great Picture! I love the sky! Did you use a polarizing filter? I wish there was one made to fit my camera. Everything is so sharp/well contrasted in that photo. Was there photoshop done to it or was it just the lighting/shadows on the rocks giving that effect?

I just read the thread about the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo movie. I am sure not going to watch that now. Not that I ever would have anyway. That blonde is reading it now. Looks like a long book. And I don't read fiction unless required. But now that I know what's in it it will seem strange to see her reading that so calmly.

I've read all of them.... There are only a few scenes, the rest isn't as bad as Chris is making it out to be.... I don't get excited about stuff like that, it's all fiction...

I find it hard to read books in general, as they put me to sleep in a couple pages. Even when I am interested in the subject. For some reason reading my online copy of Racecar Engineering does not do that. Maybe I am just reading in too comfortable a chair.

Friend had a NSX with super low miles, it was black. He almost never drove it because he wanted to keep the miles down for resale, and was afraid to get it dirty for the same reason. When it came down to selling it he was very sorry because it only made $800 difference in the value.

Had that no fiction attitude about reading in 1st grade. When ask to read out loud in class, read the first line, then started making up my own story instead of going to the next line. My stories were a lot more interesting and entertaining. The teacher never stopped me, but at the end of the year I was put in a summer reading program. They were very surprised to find I could read just fine, but only read what I was interested in. Also refused to watch Lassie because someone was always getting in trouble.

Only read one fiction book that I absolutely didn't like. It's was by Dean Koontz and I did NOT like it not because of the graphic violence, etc. it was that the bad guy got away at the end without ANY sort of punishment. And the "A word from the author" bit at the end that told why he let the bad guy off didn't help.

It is not that I think fiction is worthless. I used to love reading science fiction classics like from Jules Verne but it is just that I have lots of other important stuff to do and when I get free time I have other things I want to do more than read fiction. It just does not feel productive, which bothers me.

One thing about reading, it exposes you to new words. It is productive. That said, I don't read books very often anymore, though I did. I do read a lot on the Internet and feel some satisfaction from that, as the authors of news articles and what not, all use different words and although not as frequently, new words are presented.

Max, I hate to be the bearer of reminders here, but it is 00:19, May the 3rd. Just under 4 days to go.

Come on! You can do this! As Stijn has said to me: Just Nike it!

Some dipwad just tried to shine a green laser in my eyes. I see this green thing "floating/dancing" in front of my car. WTF?? OH! I passed the source and they tried to hit my rear view mirror, but I know what a laser is! I put my arm up to block my mirror. I could see they were trying.
