Death Race 2000 and EightFriday, September 5th, 2008
We had a Pinewood Derby at my office last night. It was fantastic. We had 15 people build cars, which is about 11 more cars than I thought we were going to get. I came in second but won Best-In-Show.
The highlight for me was racing my original Cub Scout car that my dad and I built twenty some years ago (we built it, right, like I was allowed to touch the thing) in an exhibition match. I blew its doors off. Granted the car had one broken wheel and has been collecting dust for over two decades. But a wins a win.
I admit it, I put way too much time into this thing.

Drawing Artistic Robot Two THousand.
My office had an art show, the theme was “Nerd” my entry was D.A.R.T.TH. Basically, a Silo cup with 3 Sharpies hot glued to it (it also has some sweet Darth Vader sound effects I ripped out of a magazine ad).
Everything that it draws looks like a gaint spirograph though.
