Funny you mention that. I had no idea that the LLV was based on the Iron Duke powered Chevy S-10. One of my favorite car YouTubers has been resciutating an '86 S-10, and the Iron Duke is the only thing that works on it. :lol:

I only really know because I'm following a Youtube channel restoring an old Fiero, nice.

We had a couple of mid-80s S-10s when I was younger. Not bad little trucks. One of them had those tiny inward facing seats in the (barely) extended cab. They might have even folded down.

I've always been pretty good at standardized tests, and I've enjoyed doing the online IQ tests/challenges, so last week for the hell of it I decided to register for the Mensa exam. I took it in Wilmington yesterday morning...it was pretty intense, seven sections with about 45-50 questions each, 10-12 minutes total to finish each section.

Just got an email that I am officially in :) Ultimately meaningless in the grand scheme of things and not something I will go out of my way to share with people, but pretty happy about it.

I find that answer vague and unconvincing.

Have you ever taken your SATs on LSD though?

I never took the SAT because I had no plans on going to college when I was 16.

I don't really have anything good to say about college except that life outside of the classroom was terrific. And I made the world news for selling an air guitar on ebay.

Stefan Thomas, a German-born programmer in San Francisco, told The New York Times this week that he forgot the password to his IronKey, a secure hard drive with the keys to his wallet with 7,002 bitcoins, or about $220 million worth. IronKey gives users 10 guesses to get their password right before encrypting the hard drive's contents; Thomas has two more tries left.
If you forget your password, or fail to store it in an encrypted database like the rest of civilization, you deserve to lose the $220m.

Negative, but the guy who bought it was from Texas.
