I took flight training at Galt!!! I went to the elementary school right next door. Hell I bet I flew that same Cessna. If you end up taking lessons there and your instructor is an old guy named Earl you’re in good hands. Private pilot students have been trying to kill Earl for decades so he will just give you clear,… Read more
Up till a couple of years ago I worked on the camera for this driver monitoring system. It’s clever but was frustrating because what it’s trying to do is engineer a solution to a particular flavor of human stupidity. Read more
The Dodge Mansion in Auburn Hills, MI is huge and beautiful. I think it was built by one of the widows after the death of the brothers. We had a Christmas work lunch there once and it was neat but the kind of wealth it takes to build something like that as a home is mind bending

Since it’s German maybe your production needs a little Wagner in it? Have you considered dressing as a viking and opera singing the owners manual??
