Don't know if I would want her as a babysitter. Might call her parents and ask if she has self respect problems.

Yeah, if that were her profile picture on the childcare website, I'd probably go with someone else.

Everyone's entitled to what they like in the bedroom, though, and that doesn't look like a picture that this girl really expected to have published elsewhere.

If her pic's on a childcare website, it's because she requires childcare. Too young and boyish. *thumbs down*

Is D the place in Montana where I'm going to write my manifesto?

(Actually, what I'd probably really like would be to go spend several months traveling.)

Oh, I think I'm going through my mid-life crisis right now, and I'm enjoying it for all it's worth. Your list needs more options! I'm learning to play the violin! I'm thinking of building a tree house next summer. I'm studying for a completely different profession. And I might even get a dog in a year or two. (How the hell did I get to my age without ever owning a funny-looking, fluffy dog?)

Looks like you are dealing with it in a responsible healthy fashion...
Where is the fun in that? Razz
of course I kid  


If I weren't so frugal I would buy an over the top audio system for the house as well as the car.

- hovercraft
- breaks sound barrier
- sonic boom

Wouldn't that mess up the... ah... poofy balloon part of the hovercraft? My knowledge in Hovercraftechnology is quite limited.

Depends what it's made of.
You definitly can't do it with anything that touches the water, because the build up of friction (or is it resistance?)would make it turn over.

Supersonic hovercraft. The creatives mid life crises must take some odd forms. Mel Gibson is a good example of the dark side of this phenomena. Most people are much more prosaic. They get a tattoo or a few piercings and hit the bottle harder than usual. I think the movie 'American Beauty' is my fav mid life crisis film. Nah, it's Fellini's 8½. I need to watch that again. It's been over 20 years.

This guy decided to become a hip hop rapper at 55.

A sonic boom takes place behind the vehicle after it has pushed through the sound waves that have built up in front of it and they collapse together, as far as I know, so it should be all right. I would think it would be easier to make a hovercraft faster than sound rather than a wheeled vehicle as there is no friction to overcome besides air/sound waves.
Steering would be a bitch though.

The RV butt-port looks like it was designed for the Mini Pooper but somehow I can't see BMW allowing their trendy little car be an 'option' for someone else.

New mid-life crisis car. Subaru BRZ.

In my present state of mind, I'd like a flame thrower, please.

Perfectly legal in the USA. There are no Federal Statutes against owning one and reproductions of the M2 are regularly purchased.

With all the cigarette lighters out there, I would think laws against flamethrowers would be difficult to enforce. And besides, we need something for the TSA to confiscate to validate their rent-a-cop status!
