Do I need to send you a new reciprocating arm for your Al Fatah Fuck Fist? I think you wore that one out.

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address

Bingo! The most idiotic product I've ever been witness to.

"Make your car sound like a turbo charger! Attach our turbo whistler to your muffler exhaust pipe and under heavy acceleration makes your car sound like a fake turbo charger."


Wow.

I've read that response about ten times and read it backward, and I know there has to be some relevance but ... can I get a translation?

Congrats on the Tahoe, BTW. Sounds like a heck of a deal.

Back in 1980 I imported a twin turbo Porsche. During canyon runs I would get a cheap thrill out of the whistle when they would spool up. I was sorely disappointed when the local dealer told me that Porsche had spent a lot of time attempting to silence the turbo whistle. I drove that car so hard that it spent one out of every three months in the shop and I actually bought a Volvo just to get around. I traded it in on my first Benz. An '83 380SL. My clubs fit better in it anyway.

When I was a Kid trying to show off to my friends, I would put playing cards in the spokes of my bike. Boy it made it sound cool, almost like the real thing.




Thanks greg, do you get it now?
