Are you out on a weekend furlough or did Bellevue discharge you? Your fellow New Yorkers have a right to know.

Take down your christmas tree, fool!

On a side note, what is that bike with the disc rear brake and fenders?

How big is that tv?

LOL, that pic was taken about a week ago, the tree's already down but it's been out there on the sidewalk for 6 straight days... what the hell.
It's my giant OCR-T. And the 56" tv is about 7 or 8ft from the couch, you get another half a foot if you recline the couch back but it's actually the perfect size for having almost an imax experience. A 42" would've been perfect but with hdtv, upconverted dvd's, and blu-ray, the 56" is actually clearer than watching imax (you know, the one next to lincoln center).

She's thought the track was cute when she came home and saw it, we're like 2 big kids. She has a porsche 911 to the same scale cept our transmitters are the same freq so we can't race each other.

Or vice versa, they both go crazy, believe it or not, a little thing like that going out of control at 15mph can pop a hole in the wood trim around my walls.

You can't change the freq.? I thought all controllers had an alternate for just this reason?

Well they come with modules for the transmitter and receiver for different channels. Unfortunately both of ours came with the same channel and we lost all the crystals when we moved.

I'm going to find you if you don't paint that like the 2007 McLaren with 'Nando in it when it's revealed. I hate McLaren, but I have to support them.

I got GT4 specifically so I don't have to tape up the floors recreating the Monaco course. Where's the rest of the bikes?

You gotta come over and play project gotham on the TV with the lights off, its like being there, even better once we get an xbox 360 or PS3.

The bike was at the shop for a tune up at the time.
