Everything That Sucks About Buying a New Car
This evening I went to +John Eagle Honda of Dallas. I was going to purchase at least one, but maybe two new cars.  One of which was going to be the new +Honda Civic Touring sedan. In fact, it was the EXACT one in this screen shot., which you can see clearly states that $25,443 is the FINAL PRICE.

It Ain't Even Close to Final...

After taking a test drive, we came in to talk about purchasing and were presented with a price of about $29,000 for the vehicle.  Yes, WAY more than even the MSRP. Why? Because the dealership added about $1,500 worth of fluff accessories (window tint, mud guards, wheel locks, cargo tray, nitrogen-filled tires, etc). And they were presenting us with a bill for the car at full MSRP plus full "retail" for the things they added, which in reality even at FULL RETAIL would have been lesstha... more »

HELP!!!
Hey folks, if you wanna make someone's day, here's a way to do that and show some appreciation to a WWII vet who helped secure our freedom! But you have to act quick! And all it takes is a simple card or letter!

The older gentleman picture here is Al. He's a Navy Vet who was stationed in Bremerton WA shipyards as a welder (aboard the IX-106 USS Greyhound) doing repairs on ships damaged in the Pacific theater during World War II.

Next week he'll be taking an Honor Flight (http://talonsouthonorflight.org/) to commemorate his service to the nation, and as part of the ceremony they like to read cards and letters of appreciation. But you know, that was a long time ago and he doesn't really have any right now! So show some love to an old vet and let him know how much you appreciate his efforts by sending a card or letter to:

It would be nice if Bryan could get the letters by Friday, so hop on it if you can! If they don't arrive in time for the ceremony he'll still get them to Al after the fact.

Cheers! And to all of our Veterans out there who served in any branch, and any capacity - THANK YOU VERY MUCH!___

Homemade Roasted Salsa!
Most people don't realize how easy it is to make your own homemade fresh salsa! +Normando Flores taught me his mother's recipe, and I just made some the other night.  Here's how...

Rather than giving you a very specific ingredient list let me just say you're gonna need:

- Red tomatoes
- Jalapenos
- White Onion
- Garlic

Start out by cooking them over an open flame until they are nice and tender, and have grill marks on the skin. They get delicate as they cook so be gentle with them and turn frequently.

I used about half of the jalapenos in the photo here, and all of the tomatoes. But jalapenos vary in heat wildly. So you'll need to add a few and check for heat before adding more.

I used about 1/2 of a single white onion, and about 4 little chunks of garlic, which was alsor... more »

After you get it all cooked, toss it in a food processor and GO TO TOWN! Keep blending until it is the consistency you like.  If you don't have a food processor, an inexpensive one that will do a lot for you would be the Ninja - http://amzn.to/1RMs4yH.

There is no way to get something fresher or healthier than to make it yourself. Plus, you can make it as mild or hot as you like!  Enjoy...___

I was thinking... It's been a while since our trailer was stolen. If anyone has a couple of minutes to play detective, just check and see if you happen to find our 2014 Cargo Craft EV-7142 trailer with VIN: 4D6EB1423EC038127. 

Wouldn't it be something if someone posted it online for sale somewhere and the community caught them...?

Help Find Our STOLEN +Geek Beat Trailer!
Sometime between 9pm last night and 8am this morning the brand new Geek Beat trailer was stolen from our parking lot at +The Geek House! 

The trailer is VERY distinctive because it was custom made for us, so it should be extremely easy to spot.  Features include:

* It's a 12' long x 7' wide Cargo Craft Elite V nose
* It had custom smooth sidewalls (no visible rivets)
* Tandem axle (two sets of wheels)
* Two tone with black on top and silver on bottom
* Custom wheels
* So new we don't even have the permanent license plates for it yet!
* The top front was absolutely COVERED with dead bugs from the long drive to and from New York.

It was purchased from R&J Trailers in Seagoville, TX, and most of the stickers were already peeled off with the exception of PART of the R&J Trailers sticker on the front side of the trailer.  It currently only says something like "railers.com"

Specific info on the vehicle includes:
Cargo Craft EV-7142
VIN: 4D6EB1423EC038127
Certificate of Origin dated June 12, 2014

Purchased from: 
R&J Trailers
308 South Hwy 175
Seagoville, TX 75159


If you spot the trailer, please immediately call 911 and report it as stolen.  Also, it would be awesome if you could help try and find it by spreading this post and encouraging others to join the hunt.  Also, help keep an eye out on Craig's List or eBay for the trailer. 

The worst news of all is that I'm hearing there is probably a problem with our insurance which might mean a total loss for this theft.  As in no reimbursement.

Crime sucks. Help us find our trailer. And make the bastards who stole it pay.___I was thinking... It's been a while since our trailer was stolen.

For fun I've been taking AutoCAD at the local college. By summer I'll be up to speed on AutoCAD and SolidWorks if all goes well. Here's a little sample of a 2D rendering of a coffee mug! 

Believe it or not, figuring out how to draw and dimension something as simple as a mug is really a pain in the ass. But people do this for a living, and obviously stuff that is MUCH harder!

Any of you use AutoCAD or SolidWorks on a routine basis?

Waiting on My New Tomahawk!
I've been looking at a lot of tomahawks lately. Everything from commercially produced models to custom works, and finally decided to pull the trigger on this little beauty from full time Bladesmith Mark McCoun (https://www.facebook.com/mccoun.blades).

Mark hand forged this tomahawk head out of 4140 steel, differentially hardened it and then double tempered it.  What does that mean? Let me explain...

Tomahawks, hatches, axes, hammers, etc. are unique instruments because they are designed for impacting. You want them to be tough enough to take a beating without cracking, but in order to be tough the steel has to be in a relatively softer state.

On the other hand, the softer the steel is, the quicker it will dull. So you really want the edge to be very hard so that it stays sharp.

This is where differential heat treatmentc... more »

Mark hand forged this tomahawk head out of 4140 steel, differentially hardened it and then double tempered it.  What does that mean? Let me explain...

Tomahawks, hatches, axes, hammers, etc. are unique instruments because they are designed for impacting. You want them to be tough enough to take a beating without cracking, but in order to be tough the steel has to be in a relatively softer state.

On the other hand, the softer the steel is, the quicker it will dull. So you really want the edge to be very hard so that it stays sharp.

This is where differential heat treatment comes in. You essentially harden just the blade surface area, and leave the rest of the steel soft. Then you have both hard AND tough. And that is what real bladesmiths do that commercial producers do not.

Mark offers his work on his Facebook page (see above link) and also on his eBay account. As a testament to his work, you'll see he has 2,200 ratings with 100% positives!!! Amazing.

When I get the tomahawk I'll do a little video and show it off to you guys. But in the meantime if you want one for yourself, just go get it! And tell Mark I sent ya. ;-)___

Oh, the Humanity...
Sobering. This video shows the complete destruction of Syria's 3rd largest city, Homs.

In the ongoing Syrian civil war, Homs became an opposition stronghold and the Syrian government launched a military assault against the city in May 2011. The fighting has left much of the city completely destroyed and thousands dead.

Here is an excellent discussion about what is happening in Syria and why from the BBC:

Here's the view in Google Maps of the city:

This is a FASCINATING series of undercover reporting on the auto sales industry. Should be mandatory reading for anyone who buys a car. Ever!

Everything That Sucks About Buying a New Car
This evening I went to +John Eagle Honda of Dallas. I was going to purchase at least one, but maybe two new cars.  One of which was going to be the new +Honda Civic Touring sedan. In fact, it was the EXACT one in this screen shot., which you can see clearly states that $25,443 is the FINAL PRICE.

It Ain't Even Close to Final...

After taking a test drive, we came in to talk about purchasing and were presented with a price of about $29,000 for the vehicle.  Yes, WAY more than even the MSRP. Why? Because the dealership added about $1,500 worth of fluff accessories (window tint, mud guards, wheel locks, cargo tray, nitrogen-filled tires, etc). And they were presenting us with a bill for the car at full MSRP plus full "retail" for the things they added, which in reality even at FULL RETAIL would have been lesstha... more »

And they were presenting us with a bill for the car at full MSRP plus full "retail" for the things they added, which in reality even at FULL RETAIL would have been less than $500.

As you can imagine, I brought up the pricing on their website. The one in the screen capture below with the wording FINAL PRICE. At which time they came back with that price, PLUS the $1,500 worth of extras.

I Just Knew It...

The problem with this experience is that it is so predictable. I was loathing even going to the dealer because we all know they're looking for every possible way to take advantage of buyers. Of course, even I never expected to be hit with pricing way above MSRP for a CIVIC!

But I did expect some sneaky shit. And of course that's exactly what I got. 

I did tell them clearly that I would pay the price on their website, and accept the price Edmund's TMV estimated for a fair dealer trade on my other car, but they declined the offer. So I left.

Sad thing is, they wasted their own time more than mine. Because I can call around and have any other dealership sell me the car, and now I don't even need to drive it since we know we want it.

If you ask me, no one ever wins when buying a car. But especially dealers looking to fleece their customers. Anyone agree?___
