Rolls Royce tried to build an automatic tranny way back when. They bought a GM box and tore it apart.

My club did this back in the 80's. We ran 2 laps in daytime to get familiar with the course, then played volleyball and had BBQ. Then we ran in the dark.

Seriously? No on e mentioned the right angle rule? Simply take all your stuff, stack as needed, square up all piles and orient them so the edges are parallel or at right angles to the desk edges.

I believe zombies represent the world around us that we can't control but at the same time give us hope because they're slow and rambling we can actually prevail if we stay on our toes. Coping means being faster and smarter than the other guy and who doesn't think that we are just that? Which is also why movies like… » 8/20/14 4:34pm 8/20/14 4:34pm
