    Is that a legal windup in fast pitch softball?

    Damn, I've heard of drivers throwing all sorts of stuff at cyclists, but never a deer.

    Still throws like a girl....

    Reminded me of a story, My daughter and my son used to haul Power Stroke engines from Indy to the Ford plant in Louisville and made two rounds a night. One winter, there was ice and snow everywhere and the dock at Navistar in Indy was at a slope and iced in. When my daughter pulled in to get a load, there were three other trucks there and nobody in the dock. They told her that nobody could get in because if they bumped the dock they'd just slide right back out. She pulled around and got lucky, just touched the dock and set the brake. She went inside and all the dock guy said was "You back like a girl". The others in the lot were burning up her CB as she left and her brother was one of them.

    My buddy's Gremlin X had the same basic 390 that my uncle had in his 69 AMX. I forget what year the "X" was, it may have been a smogger, but it was still a 390.

    All the inline GM engines from the 50s and 60s all had the intake on the left side. Off hand I can't think of any inline engine that had the intake on the other side. Point I'm trying to make is if that car has an inline engine, then the blower has to go on that side.

    Edit: Just remembered my 63 Comet with the 144ci inline had the intake and exhaust on the right side.

    There is a small safety line following the crack that his fingers are in; it appears to be anchored at several places and runs down the hill behind him. Blow the picture up a lot and you will also see what looks to me like a safety tie between his legs that goes down to that safety. The line from his waist down to the safety line seems to disappear at times. It might be just clever camera placement or perhaps editing.

    Either way, there are safeties present.

    This guy, however, is the very best in the world. No safeties, he climbed El Capitan.

    And then there is Dan Osman.



    But he's not around anymore. He was ok until he started using equipment to do his crazy stunts.
