It was seriously like being one of those guys that just hangs around your buddies garage while he does an engine swap. A bunch of random people/friends of friends stop by and dont really help, during mundane tasks they quiz each other about rando car knowledge and/or movie quotes to one up each other, and they experience technical difficulties with the most obscure things you can never plan for. Like I said... it was like being that guy that just sits around and watches.
Holy shit dude. You just described my life. Well, except from the perspective of being one of the people who actually helps working on the cars, while observing those who just show up to "watch".

I'm 100% serious. If I recorded every time I helped my friend work on a car, your description is exactly what would be viewed. Random people show up at the most inopportune time, and don't have the mechanical abilities to actually help. Most of the time when we're doing shit we don't need to really concentration on, if friends of friends are present they are likely asking random Honda related questions, which I am pretty much a master of ('88-'00 Hondas anyways), or my friend is making random movie quotes (pretty much his & him siblings' "thing"). Not quite specific on the car thing you posted, but it certainly can get there with some people, mostly rich kids who think they know what they are talking about, but are too egotistical or high too to realizing the bullshit they are talking about. And literally if I had a $1 for every time my friend and his sister quoted a movie to me, I'd be a god damn millionaire, and I'm not exaggerating.

I'm going to have to check this out for sure.

It's certainly not "regional" around here. I have never heard of such a thing. I smoke Newports all the damn time. Why the hell would anyone open a pack of cigarettes from the bottom of the pack? Seriously, could someone please inform my ignorant ass about this, even if it's through PM.

One place (big slices but pretty greasy) is $17.95 for one or $20.95 for two (yeah...not good at maff these it-al-ee-unns is).

Or $12.99 for a single, from another place, that slices them into pizza strips, rather than typical slices. People in the area speak of this place like it's the king shit: even if they lived in NYC with real pizza (no disrespect to Chicago Pizza because I think it's the real shit). Personally, thing pizza makes me almost shit my pants each time I eat it. For real, once, after not eating for a full day, I ate 5, three inch wide and 6 inches long strips of this pizza months ago, it instantly made me poop green. Neon/Forest green defecation. From the research I immediately did, that's the kind of food that your body says "ok body, please tell your colon to completely ignore what is passing through your digestive system, because it's so wrong for your body, that your colon can't handle it." So your body pushes this horrid excuse for digestive material through your body so fast, that it completely ignores your damn colon. And it comes out green.

Beyond that, I'd have to do some research for better prices, with better pizza (and they ain't fucking Papa Johns, which is the worst of the worst IMHO.) Those are just what I can quote off the top of my head at this drunken moment.

Actually, from a business standpoint its not a bad idea, break it down like this. And some of this info I know because my parents owned pizza restaurants for 30+ years. Most of the cost of a pizza is labor and operating costs of the facilities. On that initial pizza Say you spend 4 minutes prepping, 15 minutes cook, and a minute cutting and boxing, Ingredients costing say $4. Now for two pizzas, since most of the ingredients are shared, such as sauces and cheese, spices, other common add ons the prep time does not double, but only goes to 5.5 minutes, cook time is the same and at no additional cost, because the oven uses the same power weather it has one pizza or 10 pizzas in it. Ingredients cost the same on the surface, but if you go a little deeper, by doubling the amount of ingredients on every sale your able to purchase in larger quantities at a cheaper rate. Also because of the higher turn over your able to offer fresher items because of more frequent deliveries, and abilities to offer more of the lesser ordered ordered items because when people are ordering two pizzas they're more likely to get one standard everyone likes it variety and something more exotic. And moving on, cutting and boxing time goes up to one and a half minutes.

So if you look at it from a pure mathematical surface model it seems dumb to offer twice as much for only a fraction of the initial cost. But if you look at it a little deeper, it has a lot of benefits, and when you have deals like that you draw in business, one pizza for 18? Yeah ok maybe, but two for $22? Hell yeah! Lets do it! Very small loss in overall profit margin but generates a lot of business that more than makes up for it I'm sure, plus the added benefits of back end costs reduction as I mentioned earlier.

Oh and the place I referred to does have vegan pizza.... *but* they have a King Earl's Deliverance, which is Pancetta, bacon, sausage & extra cheese, and they'll put scrambled eggs on it if you ask.

A large around here is about $18 for a pan or $24 for a stuffed (deep dish) depending where you are. Most places get you with the toppings tough. My usual pizza is stuffed with two or three toppings depending who I might be forced to share it with and it'll run me about $30 by the time its all said and done... fucking worth every penny though. i can live off a large deep dish for about three days.

I think on my next car build I'll be using a Holley Dominator EFI setup. Been watching them program and and set it up on this engine swap, I have to say its the most easy to use fully stand alone engine management I've ever seen. Want to run o2 per cylinder? no problem, want to turn the fan on at 160 degrees? it can do that, Want to set up chain of events, such as turning fuel pump on, wait two seconds, power ignition module, it can dooooo iiittttt.... oh shit you ran a wire to the wrong pin? no problem, pin assignments are drop and drag in the software. all live tunable and configurable via laptop or included touch screen lcd. Seriously, this thing is sweet, and not unreasonably priced either.

So wow, this engine swap that I've been watching the replay of the live feed of ended in the same manner as I described earlier... pretty much as it would have played out even if it werent being done live on camera at a car show: In a last minute scramble to redo the fuel system because they were missing one fitting, they fire the car up, and immediately get bitched at by some blonde hag running the show about the noise. Because pretty much every time you do an engine swap and there is always someones girlfriend sleeping or 800 year old neighbor that starts bitching when you rip on the open exhaust a few times as a reward for your last few days of work. Bitches.

Call me crazy, but wouldnt you think that when you get your credit card billing statement and it has "Payment Due Date 12/27/13" on it that your automatic payment would hit on said due date? Apparently that makes no sense to the people at Citi.

Bill says 12/27.
They pull the money on 12/23.
Acorn is suddenly overdrafted (having planned for the payment to hit right when direct deposit does)
Acorn calls customer service to complain. Here is a brief excerpt from my convo this fine morning

CS: your auto payment is set up to pull on the 21st of every month
Acorn: well why in the fuck doesnt the bill say 12/21 then?
CS: well we can set it up to pull on the 27th if that's better for you
Acorn: That's not the point. I want the paper bill to say the date that money will be taken from me
CS: well sir, the reason the funds are withdrawan early is because it takes 24-48 hours for processing and we need to ensure the funds are available with the bank
Acorn: ...that has nothing to do with my complaint
CS: *silence*
Acorn: My complaint is that the date on the paper statement sent to me, the one I use to remind myself that there will be a significant withdrawal, that paper statement is not in line with reality. I want that paper to say the day that money will be taken, not some arbitrary day where you guys say you need to receive it. Is that possible?
CS: I will update the notes on your account to reflect this
Acorn: So is that confirmation that it will happen?
CS: Yes sir, I am updating the notes now

I myself, never got so much as a scratchy throat or head congestion. So of course, my body waits until Christmas Eve to break down. Now I can't even enjoy the hard cider I got yesterday, because I can't taste shit.
