Drive My Car
The WHO is to lift their dumb-ass travel advisory, effective Wednesday. While good news, I fear that the damage to our economy and reputation is already pretty bad. Will people accept the all clear as quickly as they did the panic alert. Fuck WHO. Fuck SARS. Fuck acronyms.
Well, SAE is an alright acronym. I found this last night – for my fourth year project in university, I was on a team building an open-wheeled race car from scratch. I was responsible for the aerobody. There are some pics up there from the unveiling. I think I’m in one of them. If I recall, we’d been up for around 35 hours straight welding, cutting, painting, etc by that point, so my memories are understandably hazy. I do remember that I needed to go home and get fresh socks at one point. Fresh socks make all the difference, no word of lie. It was a ridiculously stressful way to wind out university, but in hindsight, it was pretty fun. But don’t tell Ross I said that.
