Definitely an F-type, unless there were two Jags out there today. The hottest car in the lot was a Maserati, but I didn't get a pic.

Looks like this 2017 F-type:

Hmm, nope, that looks like a 4-door on the lot, I guess there were a couple of Jags out there today.

No matter how hard or fast I ride, even when I come close to deathís door from exertion and exhaustion, mine tells me I had another recovery ride.

Wait 2-3 months to consult with someone who doesn't know what's going on, or wait three weeks to consult with someone who doesn't know what's going on? You decide. #WitchDoctory

Getting prescription sunglasses for cycling in the near future. Most likely going with Oakleys, mainly because itís the only brand that my eye dr carryís that is remotely cycling related. Looking like iíll go with the Flak 2.0 but thatís not really what I want. The sutro did not look good on my small head, and I didnít get to try on the jawbreaker.

I really really really really want the Cmnd, but of course I cant get that one with a prescription.


Looking at sun glasses today almost makes me want to get Lasik.

Yes, but I donít think I can use my insurance for those.

The plane cannot get out of a spin, so the plane has a ballistic parachute. If the pilot gets into a spin the only way to survive is to pull the shoot. IMO this is a piss poor design, and no one ever talks about the person the plane could kill, if the parachute is deployed and the plane lands on a house, a car a school etc.

Good question. The worst part, the amount t of times the parachute is pulled for reasons that it doesnít need to be pulled. Running out of fuel, pilot got lost, flew into a cloud. It happens more than it should. Instead of being an aviator and flying out of the problem these pilots are electing to pull the parachute not caring for what could be below them. Luckily, as far as I know, no one has been killed by one.

Has anyone used there insurance for glasses and been reimbursed?

I am looking at Roka, and on their website it mentions you can file a claim and get reimbursed by your insurance, just wondering how well this works.

Other than the way-forward front wheel, the plane design looks approximately like many other ones. :foo:

Rudder must not be big enough. When an airplane enters a spin, one wing is stalled more than the other wing. A stable airplane, one can simply let go of the controls and the airplane will exit the spin. The more unstable the airplane, the pilot has to manually break the stalled condition. By applying opposite rudder and forward pressure, the pilot breaks the stall and gets out of the spin. If the surface area of the tail is too small, not enough air is going over the rudder making the rudder essentially useless in that situation.

There is a model airport in the river bottom near here and sometimes I stop on rides and watch them fly. All of the planes I see here are electric. I watched one take off today and it got into the air in just a few feet. It was sitting on the runway and it turned left and was away without taxiing down the runway at all.
