Do read this conversation if you bear any passing interest in cars. I'm sure you'll understand why I've disowned a friend of mine. :P I am by no means an expert, but I know enough to know when to start drooling.

Gorgeous beasts... )

In any case, this was the advert that first introduced me to my dream car. I SHALL HAVE YOU ONE DAAAAYYY~~~~~~ *RAISES FISTS TO THE SKY*

I HATE passenger-seat driving.

Even more than backseat driving.

Scares the shit out of me.

And unnerves me to Hell.

Professional Skills class. Yei. Mini-talk presentation in 2 weeks time. Yei. Has to be about something Physics-y. Yei. I was going to blather about the LHC but since that's a big topic I should leave that for the main talk in a couple months time. Yei. Being stuck for ideas, L'Arc came to the rescue once again (yei) when I picked the SONY NSA-PF1 instead because it's both cool and Physics-y because of the no-destructive-interference thingy. Yei.

The specs are NOT on the English website because this baby is NOT getting a UK release and diagrams being diagrams means I cannot even Google Translate them. NAY DD8

I guess this means more working out for my trusty NDS dictionary. Wh00t. (Assuming all the technical words are there anyways @___@;; )

I also didn't drive very well today, so well just leave it at that even though nothing happened 8D;;

O yeah...

I also neglected to mention that I got hit by a car (mini-van) a little while ago, which probably explains my silence besides the excuse of university. Actually to be honest, it wasn't that serious so university is probably the main reason.

It reversed into me was what happened. First of all, we drive on the left here in the UK (i.e. the CAR is on the left). It was a T-junction, and I was waiting to cross the on the left side of the smaller road which forms the "I" part of the "T", the "--" part being the main road which the mini-van was approaching on. Now, cars on the "I" part can only turn right if the filter light is on. When the filter light switches on, so does the green man for pedestrians to cross over on the left. See? Simple.

What this idiotic mini-van driver did was not stop in time when the red-lights came on for the oncoming "--" traffic to stop, so by the time his mini van came to a halt, it was half-way past the "crossing". That meant the filter-light cars had to turn slightly earlier than normal (i.e. cutting lanes/corners slightly), and the pedestians had to walk around behind the mini-van.

THE MORONIC BASTARD DECIDED TO REVERSE (WITHOUT LOOKING BEHIND HIM) IN ORDER TO SOLVE THIS PROBLEM.

RIGHT INTO ME.

Asshole. Got bruises all over my legs now, and though they've mostly healed, they're leaving dark blotches which AREN'T GOING AWAY DAMNIT all over my skin. Now I can't wear skirts. DD: *is majory upset*
