diesel66 Great. (506 comments)

Great. Wait until we see our real estate tax bill this year.

Of course, we should be able to get a few more dollars for it when we sell.

That's life!

OpenLeaks — 'A New WikiLeaks'

diesel66 Re:What's wrong with wikileaks? (538 comments)

"It might not even have made much difference to them if they'd known exactly how much power the President of the Galaxy actually wielded: none at all. Only six people in the Galaxy knew that the job of the Galactic President was not to wield power but to attract attention away from it."

diesel66 Re:joystick vs k&m (609 comments)

(BTW: I recall seeing a joystick controlled concept car at EPCOT Center at least 20 years ago in (I think) the GM pavilion. I wonder how that's doing these days...)
