Canvassing the Western Addition for the U.S. Census – Not a Bad Gig at $22 an Hour

Thursday, May 27th, 2010

Laboring in the 415 for the U.S. Census isn’t half-bad.

The workers make more than a mosquito abatement courier, anyway.

When you see them walking around, just yell out, “Go home, G-Man!” They’ll love it.

As seen on McAllister:

Actually, I’ve let our local census taker into the building twice. You should too, why not?

From 1790:

  1. Name of head of family
  2. Number of free white males 16 and up, including heads of families
  3. Number of free white males under 16
  4. Number of free white females including heads of families
  5. Number of all other free persons, except Indians not taxed
  6. Number of slaves

To 2010, things haven’t changed a whole bunch.

The census has been updated to reflect all the amendments to the U.S. Consitution of course, but things haven’t changed a whole bunch.

So, answer the door when your Census worker drops by, huh?

Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Motorcade Rolls on 22-Inch Dub Wheels – Is That Safe?

Friday, April 25th, 2008

That’s right, Conan the Destroyer has a posse and they’re all rolling on dubs. Check out these 22-inch monsters being used in an official gubernatorial motorcade:

And check out those balancing weights – do you see how much it takes to keep these massive rims rolling true? These wheels are about twice as large as what Vanilla Ice’s Five point-oh Ford Mustang had way back in the 1990′s.

There’s no good reason to have wheels this large on your vehicle. Some think them dangerous. Others don’t like the way they ride. Of course, sometimes you might be like Senator Don Perata and end up with a set of duece dueces because they come with the car, but not usually.

If you want to show off your wheels, why not keep them a little smaller and then load up on some bling bling? Diamond and ruby studded wheels from Asanti only cost $2,000,000 per set – will this be the next trend in fashionable wheels?

Arnold Schwarzenegger might be your role model, but don’t try to copy him with his huge wheels.

Asta la vista, baby.
