Two interesting thoughts from a former taxi driver:

Quote:
I used to drive a taxi. I made a lot of money doing it. I learned very early on to never drive someone to their destination if it was a route they drove themselves, say to their home from the airport, or from their home to work or vice versa. Everyone prides themselves on driving the shortest route but they rarely do. Often people develop a route that is based on need -say going by the day care, or avoiding an intersection where they once had an accident or to avoid driving by an ex’s house or skirting road construction long since resolved- but as they become habituated to it, they fail to reorganize their strategy when their needs change. When I first started driving a cab, I drove the shortest route -always, I’m ethical- but people would accuse me of taking the long way because it wasn’t the way they drove. So, I learned to go their way ending up with a lot less grief and a lot more money. If you’ve ever wondered why a seeming professional cab driver will ask you how to get to your destination, this is why. Going your way means they’ll make more money and they won’t be accused of ripping you off. Not to say that in the beginning, I wasn’t stupid. I’d try to show the customer the route on a map but they’d usually be offended that I was contradicting them. It was to their house, if I’d never been there, how could I possibly know better than they did? In the end, experts they consider themselves to be, people are a tangle of unexamined emotional impulses and illogical responses.
Quote:
Oh, and here’s a tip I hope you never need: if your car is ever stolen, your first calls should be to every cab company in the city. You offer a $50 reward to the driver who finds it AND a $50 reward to the dispatcher on duty when the car is found. The latter is to encourage dispatchers on shift to continually remind drivers of your stolen car. Of course you should call the police too but first things first. There are a lot more cabs than cops so cabbies will find it first -and they’re more frequently going in places cops typically don’t go, like apartment and motel complex parking lots, back alleys etc. Lastly, once the car is found, a swarm of cabs will descend and surround it because cabbies, like anyone else, love excitement and want to catch bad guys. Cabbies know a lot of stuff*. I found a traveling shoplifting ring in Phoenix once. Professional shoplifters always take cabs. So do strippers going to work but that’s another story.

Jim, that reminded me of Street of Crocodiles. It's about 20 minutes. Best to watch it with full attention when you have a chance. Based on the short story by Bruno Schulz.

I could spend some serious time at this site I just came across.

Home made tools forum.

All sorts of home made tools here, from your standard home made hand planes, to specialty tools like a pinion puller.

This thread discussing farts is nearly worthy of us. Very funny read.

I had actually seen that a couple weeks ago when I went to Wandel's website. He used it to make a wooden grave marker for his dad. He's an evil genius. Except he's not evil.

I have two for you this time.

The first, is a CNN nationwide active map of meth lab distribution. By county, no less.

*******************

The second, O. M. G!!!

Cellar, I present to you FreeCabinPorn.

No porn, but have a towel handy, anyway. You know, for the cabingasms.

Yes, cabingasms. As in, multiple.

I shorted out my keyboard with drool.

Don't believe me?

Louisiana may shoot the crap out of people, but Ohio sure has its share of meth labs. Woohoooo. Way to go OHIO!

I did have a cabingasm. I want I want I want.

So Imma sneak in pics of my brudder and sissy-laws cabin. There's another one on their property but it's going to need torn down. This place is as awesome as it looks, summer or winter. See the wild turkeys? I saw a family running by my window once, then the big old Tom comes swooping in. Fascinating.

(You hunters would luvz my brudder.)
