    I worked in a print shop for a while, ran a A.B. Dick 360 offset, A.B. Dick plate maker. Yep, the padding compound smell was strong, like raw latex, but was fun stuff. Those presses will last forever, great well made equipment.

    Refs doing those blatant no-calls again. That's exactly why the Saints lost. End of story. That play near the end will be broadcast and viewed a million times.

    The Saint's coach will crush a few refs careers tonight or tomorrow over this.

    I've been in a Datson B210 doing that. :D

    Also some other car that was very heavy driven by the same crazy driver. My old friend Barry.

    Speaking of "Datsun" -- did you know that the name came from a company called DAT?

    bdyjxil8f5w6.png


    I was gonna write this myself, but - poor form & questionable accuracy notwithstanding :# - I'm gonna just quote Wiki-P. :)
    Before the Datsun brand name came into being, an automobile named the DAT car was built in 1914, by the Kaishinsha Motorcar Works (快進自動車工場 Kaishin Jidōsha Kōjō), in the Azabu-Hiroo District in Tokyo. The new car's name was an acronym of the surnames of the following company partners:

    Kenjirō Den (田 健次郎 Den Kenjirō)
    Rokurō Aoyama (青山 禄朗 Aoyama Rokurō)
    Meitarō Takeuchi (竹内 明太郎 Takeuchi Meitarō)

    Incidentally, datto (how a native Japanese speaker would pronounce "dat") means to "dash off like a startled rabbit" (脱兎), which was considered a good name for the little car.

    DAT Automobile Manufacturing began development of a line of 495 cc cars to sell in this new market segment, calling the new small cars "Datson" – meaning "Son of DAT". The name was changed to "Datsun" two years later in 1933.

    Nissan ultimately bought DAT and used the Datsun name as a brand name (e.g., in the US).

    According to Wiki-P, the Datsun name was phased out in 1986 :(

    PS The home market Nissan cars generally had (and still have) cooler names than their US counterparts, I'd opine :)

    A cold, windy day (-5 degrees F air temp, -20 degrees F wind chill) brings the perching birdies to our feeders. The wind blew the top of the feeder open -- but I don't want to go out & bother all those little songbirds. :p
