    My son's snail, Lemon.

    I have to say though, he really knows how to mug for the camera!

    (No, I didn't say "pug for the camera." There are far too many of those already. Ugh.)


    I might've said "bug for the camera", but I know y'all'd crash the server pointing out to me that this is a gastropod mollusc, not an arthropod.

    :|

    'tis a fine looking snail -- of that there should be no doubt.

    new harley electric

    Hifi system onboard to deliver that sonorous Harley exhaust note?

    Gotta love the simulated gas tank fairing... shades of Buick's Ventiports (portholes) of the 1950s.

    That said, an electric motorcycle actually makes a fair amount of sense -- the power to weight ratio could be outrageous, if they can pack enough lithium ion cells on board to give it a reasonable range.

    "The original LiveWire battery was estimated to have about 1/10 the energy capacity of the Tesla battery, which suggests a freeway range of less than 40 miles. Harley has almost certainly done a lot of work on the LiveWire since 2014, but even if its battery comes in much larger at 20 kWh and 210 pounds, which would make it state-of-the-art, the highway range of the LiveWire is unlikely to be much more than 100 miles, at least at 75 mph. Heaven help you if you cruise at 90 mph, as that would cut range by another 30 percent."

    I believe the calcium comment reflected the sort of fluffy, degraded appearance of the snail's shell -- which I hadn't even noticed when the photo was originally posted. :(

    soooo... I was mindin' my own business, doing a search on 1990s Steeo Review magazine scans at https://www.americanradiohistory.com/ * and I stumbled across this two-page ad featuring the Lab Coat Guy himself, blindfolded. :|

    I would be interested to observe the sound coming from that system. Upon looking at it, why are the speakers not toed in?
