RobertB-DC's Journal: New Sig Archive 4

Journal by RobertB-DC

Just want to continue tracking my sigs. Original list available here.

This one is self-explanatory. I've only actually bought from them once, but it's a cool place to hang around if you're awake at midnight, Dallas time.

w00t? w00t!

This is a sig from a particularly dark period. It's a reference to the song Alone Again, Naturally. The next line is "And climbing to the top, to throw myself off, in an effort to make it clear to who-ever what it's like when you're shattered..."

...I promise myself to treat myself, and visit a nearby tower.

I came across this one at the amazing QDB (aka bash.org). I couldn't bring myself to link to the site referenced by the quote, though!

I'm happy to listen to good reasons why I should do diesel (or BioWillie! :) ), instead. It would be great to see a comparison FAQ or something like that on the sites you linked...
        • You should definitely visit http://www.tdiclub.com/ [tdiclub.com] and compare the performance of the VW high-efficiency diesels against the hybrids. A friend at work has a hybrid, and it's got so much geek factor it's insane. I love watching the real-time display that shows whether the wheels are being driven by electric, or gas, or if regenerative braking is charging the batteries, or if the gas engine is charging the batteries... or any combination.
