Gas prices are INSANE!!!!! just paid $4.70 for unleaded today. just look at the lines for “cheaper” gas at Costco. It’s times like this that I wished I was in New York where Mass transit works. I was in line for 30 minutes just to get to the pump.

iPhone Invisible Shield “Case”

Posted by mikenopolis on June 16, 2008

I went looking for a gift at the mall and found this cart that sold the “Invisible Shield” I had wanted one because all the case I had to the iPhone collected dust which in turn scratch the chrome around my phone. it was $30 for a FULL cover. Anyway, so far this thing is Amazing. I’ve gone two weeks without a case and I’m LOVING it! it covers 95% of the phone including the curved corners!

Skinny Jeans…on guys are Gay Gay Gay

Posted by mikenopolis on June 16, 2008

I’ve got nothing against gay people who are actually gay, but I think skinny jeans are SUPER GAY especially when the person wearing them are acting “macho”, I mean look at this guy!

He was talking to his friend with that manly tone, saying something like “Man, that chick was hella hot, I would like to bang her….” any way, you see how ridiculous that is? If you are a human being and finds this attractive…you need some help.

And what’s with people and the caps that are that high up and straight…and with the sticker still on it? The whole invention of the hat is to cover your eyes from the sun….if you are gonna wear and “baseball” cap, watch a game and look at how it’s supposed to be worn!

Ghetto Cars

Posted by mikenopolis on June 16, 2008

I have decided to start a new posting tag called “Ghetto Cars”. I have seen these piece of crap everywhere and it’s just plain UGLY…

In order to make it to this Ghetto Car Category, the car must be embarrassingly over “flashy”. such as a sub compact car with a hugh spoiler, or 20″ chrome rims, or a Nissan Sentra with three baby seats (I’ve seen it!!!! didn’t have my camera with me at the time). Basically if the car should not be fixed up and it is, then it’s ghetto. If your car is a four door sedan and it’s fixed up, it’s ghetto. If you have baby seats and your car is fixed up, it’s Ghetto. If you are poor and use your food/rent money for rims, you’re GHETTO!!! etc etc etc.

If you get a picture of one, please send it my way.

Here are a few example of the ones I’ve taken a picture of so far

Alhambra / Monterey Park / Arcadia etc… WORST Driver Ever!!!

Posted by mikenopolis on June 4, 2008

My girlfriend and I decided to get into work a little later today (we put in so many hours each day, it really doesn’t matter) at 7:45am I remembered that it was street sweeping day and she would get a ticket if we don’t get her car off the stree (the car we use to commute to work because it has the best mileage out of the 3 cars). So I went and got the car, I was going to re-park the car on the next block, but there was no open spots. I decided to park the car in front of my garage. We live in a condo (here’s a picture of it) and there are two sides. I very strategically parked the car in a way that it would not block anyone from entering or exiting their garage.

REPEAT…I very strategically parked the car in a way that it would not block anyone from entering or exiting their garage. I really put a lot of thought into it. But the people who live directly across from me are the WORST drivers I’ve experienced with. Every time I wash my car/s they would ask me to move the car because they can’t get in or out of their garage. This morning was no different. She honked like 7 times then yelled out “Can you move your car?!?!?” in her broken English. Really 7 times? give me some time, I’m three floors up! When I got down there, she was giving me this UGLY look, not a single word, just a look (so I mumbled “learn to drive stupid idiot”). I would’ve been okay with that if she wasn’t such an idiot. The situation have been reverse many many times, but I have not once asked them to move because the area between our garage is big enough where a normal person can maneuver without any problems.

This is what I saw when I got downstairs

She was just driving straight out, she did that a few time…hello?!?!? use that steering wheel! it’s called turning! I know what she was doing, she wanted to back out with th rear of her car pointing to the left and then drive right and forward to the “exit”. But there are other ways out too, like backing out. I have drawn out what she should have done instead of bitching and whining…like I said I parked it so that it would not block anyone to entering and exiting!!!!(click to enlarge)

Did I ever mention that our insurance rate is actually higher because of the city we live in? If we lived in the city we worked in, the quote was $250-300 less per year, PER CAR!!!!! I’ve always complained about the drivers in this area. I guess it’s not just me. I gotta move…I hope my girlfriend’s bid on that house goes through!
