    Damn you, sir, for getting me sucked into IHM. This is going to take HOURS to get through. Maybe days.

    Wise words, there. Nomex lets no fire in, nor anything (sweat, etc.) out.

    exploiting the Hooniverse hive mind special bonus mystery car!:
    While watching random old MotorWeek reviews on youtube, I found a car I '91 Olds 98 road test. At 20s there's a teaser clip of an unnamed Vector W8-looking 'German supercar' with disconcertingly long shift throws. What is it?

      1991 German Supercar sounds like an Audi Avus but I 'm not sure they ever made one that ran.

    I am not entirely sure that is up to the driver's consciousness.

    When I first arrived at the hospital with a broken pelvis, if anything moved my legs above the ankles, I was in extreme agony. I didn't know how I was going to use a bedpan, but figured it would hurt a lot, and would hurt even more for the nurses to clean up afterward.
    When I was immobile, I made a conscious decision to stay on IV and liquid nourishment as much as possible to postpone the inevitable for as long as I could.
    I'm proud to say I stayed completely full of crap for nine consecutive days, which has given me great practice for blog postings.

      I had a… similar experience… when I broke my hip a few years ago. Apparently it's fairly common upon suffering significant trauma. The opportunity for such practice is very much not worth it, I'd have to say.

    Now you tell me. In my defense, I'd simply like to point out that the car was a loaner, as well as the firesuit.
