#1 Exhaust flappers
Exhaust flappers are just flat caps that sit on top of exhaust outlets and are attached to the pipes by hinges. The idea is that when there’s sufficient gas pressure from the engine pushing exhaust out, the flap lifts to allow the gases to escape. When there isn’t, the flap closes under its own weight, preventing rain from getting into the exhaust pipes and causing rust and other havoc. My favorite time is when the engine is idling and the flap bobs up and down going “tink! tink!” every time it shuts. :3

Wow! I think I found my new favorite beer ever! I cannot say a single bad thing about this beer!
So I’m once again trying to quit coffee. My doc has been after me to quit for a while. But now I have a bit of a better incentive thanks to my girlfriend, Taylor. 😉
I have a coffee recommendation to write but I’m never near a keyboard when I’m drinking it.
So be satisfied with my newfound fondness of cocktails.
Part I: I got to sleep in this morning. Hooray!
Part II: I had an excellent shot of espresso this morning (used the single-shot filter today instead of the double).
Part III: THEY’RE MAKING A PENGUINS MOVIE!
Part IV: I’m getting my Royal Arch Mason degree this afternoon in Racine. I can’t take pics of the degree work itself (obviously) but I’ll send any that are taken at the afterparty.
Anything going on tonight? I expect to get back from Racine around 5-ish and I’ll be up for anything. I ended up not going to the piano bar because I don’t like the idea of drinking and driving.
Also: Have some Quenya:
I woke up. I was slightly unnerved but couldn’t figure out why. I made coffee. While I was waiting for the coffee to brew, the realization of why I was slightly unnerved hit me: My subconscious had just lost its virginity to an anthropomorphic mink. I blame the googles I had to do yesterday to research this article. Needless to say, I think I’m over that particular subject for a LONG time. Now off to read Freefall 😛 J/K. I’m off to drink coffee, read the dailies (not including Freefall since I’m not up to today’s yet), and then take a bunch of old computer junk downstairs. Now will someone pass me the Brain Bleach, please?
