Skinny Bean loves destruction, and so does my brother

Tim L. from Denver sends a link to Wrecked Exotics, a great place to satisfy your schadenfreude jones. They have pics of terribly expensive and fancy wrecked cars, including Aston Martins, Bugattis, Porsches and Ferraris of course, and even a Ford GT40, which is heartbreaking even though it looks like a kit car. Lots of fun, albeit in a mean-spirited way.

Also, my oldest brother David loves to watch things blow up and fall down (who doesn't), and he sent me this link to Implosion World, a collection of videos of building and structure implosions. Demolition companies realized at some point that buildings falling down are fun to watch, and have started putting cameras all over the place when they drop something big. Lots of stadiums, bridges, and big buildings exploding and crumbling. Very soothing, I could watch it all day. Enjoy.

Having discovered your blog through the blooger toolbar, I hope you don't mind saying that I have a ebooks site/blog. It pretty much covers ebooks related stuff. Check it out if you have time.

Help me Dude, I think I'm lost.

I was searching for Elvis and somehow ended up in your blog, but you know I'm sure I saw him in a car lot yesterday, which is really strange because the last time I saw him was in the supermarket.

No honest really, he was right there in front of me, next to the steaks singing "Love me Tender".

He said to me (his lip was only slightly curled) "Boy, you need to get yourself a shiny, new lcd tv to go with that blue suede sofa of yours.

But Elvis said I, In the Ghetto nobody has a lcd tv .

Dude I'm All Shook Up said Elvis. I think I'll have me another cheeseburger.

Then I'm gonna go round and see Michael Jackson and we're gonna watch that waaaay cool surfing scene in Apocalypse Now on the lcdtv in the back of my Hummer.

And then he just walked out of the supermarket singing. . .

"You give me love and consolation,
You give me strength to carry on "

Strange day or what? :-)

How can I find out the amount a dealer pays for a car? Is this the invoice they say you pay under on the TV commercials or is this bull ? I saw the invoice stuff on Refinance Car Loan where they promise you a car loan.
