"The Scorpion's rollcage is more angled than I wanted, however, so using a vice and a heatgun, I brought the angle more vertical"

Why did you want it less angled? Any functional reason or just cause it looks cooler and more bratty?

I'm really feeling this pairing.

Update: I found the vinyl recording of this Nico album in a record stores bin for almost nothing not to long ago. I don't know how rare the record it but I consider it a massive score.

Haha not really just thought this was a fascinating read psychologically. Particularly fascinating is just how dismissive he is of the causes of, and factions in the war that did that to them. They seem to melt away in importance compared to the outcomes they produced. You might need to add booze and smokes to your stockpile tho lol ;)

I’m kind of determined to bend the alone curve down as I age. Even if it’s with just a handful of close friends or family. I’ve a hunch I’ll live longer and have more fun.

I'll say this.

A good friend of mine was a teacher for a decent stretch of time, and focused on teaching autistic children. She found it extremely rewarding but that's inconsequential and completely besides the point. She always had a lot to say about how happy and full the lives of her students were. I remember when my wife and I were looking at having a kid, and I was talking to her about my fears that at our age there was a higher probability of genetic issues resulting in things like Downs Syndrome. I will always remember the distinct lack of time that elapsed in her reply, coupled with her nakedly honest response asking why that would even matter, -that children with Down syndrome where just as awesome and capable of radical happiness as any other.

I still think about that jarring moment to this day.
