After problems with new chicken shipper DHL, the company apologized to frustrated chicken eaters with this awesome ad.

Wanted Porsche Wanted Porsche

My old college roommate, who lives in western Virginia near Harrisonburg, sent me these. He spotted this VW pickup outside an auction house. I’m guessing this guy has a really messy lot somewhere with some very interesting relics parked on it. Apparently, he DDs this beauty.

I’m just going to leave this here.

The Apache and the Wasp [Wingspan] The Apache and the Wasp [Wingspan]

By most accounts, the Wright F3W Apache was an unremarkable biplane of the early 1920s, built to a US Navy request for a fighter plane, float plane, and scout plane. The Apache was originally designed around a Wright Whirlwind radial, but that engine proved underpowered, and the Wright P-1 Simoon radial engine which…

Billy Graham has died at age 99 Billy Graham has died at age 99

I think his importance may have diminished over the last few years, but he was certainly a powerful mover of religion and politics during his lifetime, for better or worse.

I heard Oppo likes curling. Here's some old school curling. I heard Oppo likes curling. Here's some old school curling.

Check out this recap of the 1972 McDonald Brier, an annual competition held in Canada (of course). Dig the old corn brooms and sweaters. Fitness has changed a lot, too. This dude was making shots with a butt hanging out of his mouth (16:56).

Rehearsing for tonight’s pops concert, “Music of the Knights.” Paul McCartney, Elton John, and Andrew Lloyd Webber. Good music (except maybe for Webber) but lame arrangements. Some nights you just gotta earn a paycheck.

On the road, with Oppo and the Olympics. Shuster and the Americans are actually leading the Danes right now. Consider me shocked.

Valentine's Day Oppo Poll Valentine's Day Oppo Poll

For you married Oppos out there, what was the first song/music you danced to with your new bride/groom at your wedding? This was our song, and it perfectly describes how my new wife took care of my drunk ass through college. And, after 27 years, she still wonderful, although I’m a lot less drunk.

A question for our UK/GB (or whatever) Oppos A question for our UK/GB (or whatever) Oppos

So, I’m watching women’s curling at the Olympics, and the entire GB team is from Scotland. Which makes sense, since it’s a Scottish sport, and Scotland is part of the UK/GB. But at what point do the individual countries play for themselves? I watch the Six Nations rugby, and you get England, Scotland, Wales, Ireland…

Emily Sweeney luge crash Emily Sweeney luge crash

Damn, this was brutal. And tough to listen to. A few minutes after the crash, she got up and walked away under her own power, and even gave an interview before she went to get X-rays on her back. I thought for sure she had at least broken a leg. Here’s Leigh Diffey with the call.
