Ian Lamont writes "You probably remember reading about Brian May getting a PhD in Astrophysics, but may not know about the many other celebrities from the music, TV, and film worlds who have studied science and technology in college and grad school, or are simply serious gearheads who like gadgets, games, and other geek pastimes. Computerworld has identified about 50 celebrities who fit the bill, including Dan Grimaldi (Patsy Parisi, The Sopranos) who has a Bachelor of Arts degree in math, a master's in operations research and a Ph.D. in data processing; Rowan Atkinson, who has a master's in electrical engineering from Queen's College, Oxford; and Todd Rundgren, who developed an early paint program called Utopia. Other folks on the list: Dr. Demento, Montel Williams, Natalie Portman, Curt Schilling, and Huey Lewis."

Journal: scAAMCO Transmissions ripped me off

Journal by CrayzyJ

This is a warning to everyone not to use AAMCO transmission. I paid $1600 to have my tranny rebuilt , but it still shifts like a dump truck (oh, and it's not a dump truck tranny). I brought it back and complained and the "mechanic" told me he didn't notice a thing. Didn't notice the grinding going into second gear? Cripes.

DO NOT USE AAMCO, they rip you off!

Just because he's dead is no reason to lay off work.
