Today's line

"Dude, have you ever been mocked by a turd? It's not awesome."

- Eric Quade

Im gonna try 2 tame your little red love machine

Anyone else listen to Prince? I listen to quiet a bit of his songs - including Batdance.

At any rate, I'm trying to determine an approximate speed of the "Little Red Corvette"(a metaphor of a speeding car to a fast woman but let's ignore that).

Things we can extrapolate from the song:
  1. The Corvette is traveling at a speed faster than what Prince considers safe.
  2. The Corvette contains a nearly full tank of gas.
  3. Prince is concerned the speed and road friction will end up driving the car right into the ground (tire wear?).
  4. The song was released in 1982, so let's assume it's a new Corvette. A 1982 Corvette had 200 hp, and did 0-60 mph in 7.9 seconds and the 1/4 mile in 16.1 seconds at 85 mph. It hit 100 mph in 24.8 seconds and a top speed of 125mph.
  5. The album cut of the song is 4:58 minutes long.
  6. The car was parked at the beginning of the song (sideways) and sat still long enough for Prince to examine the contents of the girl's pockets.
  7. Prince first mentions her speed being "too fast" at 0:52 seconds into the song in the first chorus.
It is my assumption that by the time that Prince warns her the first time that she is going too fast that she has easily maxed out the Corvette at 125mph. The album was recorded in Minnesota where this is double the current posted speed limits. Slow down indeed.

Please let this be real.



If this is a big joke I'm going to be so pissed. If this is real then I'm going to be glued to the tube this fall.

Facebook

Ok so I know I havent posted a lot on here lately. Stupid Twitter and Facebook are sucking up all my quick post anecdotes lately and I havent had many deep insights worth posting on here.

Dont know if that's a good or bad thing. So here's a list things I've recently been thinking about:
  • When will Aqua's new single drop?
  • Why would you wear a gun to a political rally?
  • How do you tell when cat food goes bad?
  • How to kill ppl who respond with "k" or some variance.
  • My new phone (HTC Touch Pro).
  • Bulking-up.
  • Robert Frost's ironic commentary on fencing.
  • Why it's easy to rastorize but difficult to vectorize.
  • Call of Duty 5 Map Packs.
  • Shelving.
  • A vampire's permanent hymen issue.
  • Faux stained glass.
  • How cool the word ancillary is.
  • How I think I've missed doing anything fun this summer in the warm weather.
  • Nightvision goggles.
  • Buying a camcorder.
  • That Democrats normally dont mind being thought of as cowards and Republicans normally dont care if they're hypocrites

CNR would KILL Chuck Norris


This is great. Especially now that Chuck Norris has thrown his opinion into the whole Obama-birther crowd.
