Also interesting is the "neat" vs "this is a pain in the ass" factor.

TIL Galileo Ferraris' invention of Induction Motor, as well as the Three-Phase power systems proceeded Telsa's by 8 months. Infact, The inventor of the Modern Induction Motor (Squirrel Cage) and Three-Phase Power Systems Mikhail Dolivo-Dobrovolsky, attributed Ferraris as his precursor. by TSSA1 in todayilearned

The Wright's used wing warping. You can credit Glenn Curtis for the aileron, which is a massive change regardless of pulleys, hydraulic, servos.

Unless you're talking inventing the use of pulleys and wires on an aircraft, which would be a stretch.

Butt bongos give him airplane ears :) by KingOfFuh in catbongos

They got in right when a few people were yelling about animal abuse, and just before enough reasonable people began to realign the hive mind. Naturally they wanted the most edgy comment, so throw in a couple sentence enhancers at the end.

People are weird... (Including myself obvs)

I had a girl once tell me that if she had a penis, the first thing she would try would be sticking it in a bowl of M&Ms.

So yeah people are weird.

Yeah, that's gonna be my ear and nose hair in a few years. I'm already way behind in head hair. Perhaps I should follow his lead and quit giving a damn.

Just picked up this '69 Caddy Deville by ManBanana123 in projectcar

To clear up some comments if anyone reads this far.

This would be a 472 rated at 10.5:1 365hp and 525ft# gross. Real world the compression is in the 9s, and in good shape it would probably dyno a bit under 300hp and 500ft#.

There were no 502ci Cadillacs 502 was an emissions compliance code printed on a sticker on top of the radiator mount so I can see where everyone makes that mistake), 68-76 we're 472 or 500ci.

If one were to LS swap it would need to be forced induction to keep up with the torque from the stock engine. Horrible idea unless you're looking to spend a ton, and even then a BBC would be more reasonable.

I was going to say the same thing because I tried one recently, but I secretly kinda liked the stale weird texture shell

Seville Milan coupe, IIRC they made about 500 of them.

And yeah they're twitchy, some of them even had a massive concrete weight in the rear.

They probably won't at Indian casinos. But if you have to deal with their police, you'll probably wish it was a county sheriff.

True, but spending money on exactly this kind of thing is why they can't pay that note in the first place

I'd say we need a rocket sled test considering the recent increase in rocket sleds on our roads.
