Why do you say alleged? Tons of vids get pulled for that, or the music gets stripped off.

Bet a third of my bookmarked youtube vids have been pulled. Everything is not a conspiracy.


That's one I won't miss, either

Once it hits the internet, it's damn near impossible to remove it.

That video's hosted on ebaumsworld and break to name a few. I'm sure there's already thousands of copies downloaded to users PC's.

Alleged in a legal sense. I doubt it was adjudicated.

In Helsinki, Finland, 20,000 truckloads of snow plowed from city streets throughout last winter was stacked into a huge pile, which is only now finally melting away. Just in time for next winter. The pile was measured at 27 meters (more than 88 feet) high in April. Last week, the height dipped below 1 meter (3 feet), which was enough for the local newspaper to declare victory.

As the months have passed since April, the vanishing pile has revealed from its bowels a whole host of interesting and strange artefacts: at least some jeans, a concrete "pig" as used to deter drivers from using a street, flower boxes, and plastic spades and shovels. Almost at the death, just recently, a digger driver working on the pile unearthed two motorbikes.

Annual Fat Mans Walk

Snuck away for a few days to get my annual fix in the Sierras, this year we took a route that we first did 34 years ago. Started at South Lake outside of Bishop, CA.

Bivy at Bishops Pass just under 12000', Mt Agassis in the background. This year we blew off the tent and went light.



Here at pics of my buddy Eugene(Huge-gene) from Agassis Col, it's steeper then it looks and was pretty brutal w/full packs.











After pimping up a few cross country passes we dropped onto the Muir Trail and came out at North Lake. Not a lot of miles, but plenty of elevation.

Contraband from California, what I do for the wife!

We just got back from riding Johnny Park then Pearson Park.

Half way up Pearson Park my clutch cable snapped - going up the wall was fun with no clutch to feather being over geared but I got lucky and made it
Made for an interesting ride home trying to time all the traffic lights, stop signs, rush hour traffic, etc.

Dusty broke a foot peg bolt.

Paul's bike worked flawlessly (the rider might have had a flaw )

Great time gents

A P-40 just flew over oooooooooh what a sound

Most warbirds don't make me drool (growing up around them) but the P-40 always gets me excited.

It has always been my favorite stemming back to childhood - my first plastic model was a P40, my first control line aircraft was a P40 and my first RC scale aircraft was a P40.

wikipedia says as of 2008 there were 19 Curtiss Warhawks still airworthy

I had a model of one hanging from my ceiling as a kid, next to the others.
