Looks super nice. I feel like Albee when I'm in that store. Not like I want to touch myself, but that I want to buy all the things!

But rather than get another handgun, I got the AR-15 instead. I'm so excited to get all kinds of crap for the AR lol.

I woke up at 11'ish and finished up those various connecting rod articles. Meh, so inconclusive.

Materials:
Cast Iron = crap
Steel = best all around material
Titanium = best if you are spending someone else's money
Aluminum = best if you are spending someone else's money and also need to absorb combustion shock and are ok with replacing connecting rods very often

Design
I beam = slightly better in terms of weight
H beam = slightly better in terms of torsion and compression
Tubular = probably best design but too hard to make

:shh

After a day or two its bad for you, doesn't work much and addictive. Plus the constipation!

But for that first blissful 24-48 hours.. ohh, it kills pain, it kills the pain of life and all bothersome issues in it.. sitting blissfully on the couch watching everything float by, ignoring annoying interlopers..

Everyone should get 1-2 injury free pain killer days per year to do this, it's good for the soul.
