Some Christmas Eve Snark

I always thought of guns and shooting as a much cheaper version of tinkering with cars, with some pretty obvious analogues...
bullet weight <--> size of car
muzzle velocity <--> car velocity
powder <--> fuel
muzzle energy <--> horsepower
With that in mind, I got a hoot out of this thread at The High Road, where someone was asking about Team Glock racing...

...the other drivers made fun of their "tupperware" car and ignore the fact that it's never failed to finish a race except for the occasional Kb (broken crankshaft) that's due to the mechanics upping the compression way past spec on reman parts...
...And because the cylinders aren't supported.

Merry Christmas, y'all. ;-)
