I've gotten over $200 in cash back from them at places I would have shopped anyway! Ebay, Staples, more! I put it at the top because they ROCK. Basically, you get a kickback from Ebates when buy.com or whoever pays them. Win-win. If you like throwing money away, don't use them!

Cheap Soda: I got it for about 4 cents a can

First you will need an adapter to use Paintball cylinders with your Sodastream machine.

Check this page for compatibility:


You can get a 24oz cylinder filled at Academy Sport and Outdoors for $4. Sodastream charges $33 for 14 ounces!

Don't even do the math on that one. It's super high.

Now buy a machine:


Finally to start getting the cheapest syrup, buy the boxes at Sam's if you want commercial stuff like Coke Zero.

Shop various stores' clearance section. I recently bought Sodastream Diet Caffeine syrup for ONE DOLLAR at Kroger.

You can also use flavored water enhancer that Aldi sells, or any other concentrated flavor or juice.

Amazon has some Sodastream Sodas as low as $4: http://amzn.to/2mtOj4P

Have fun, and save some serious cash.

2009 C6 Corvette Rims on 1988 C4

Disclaimer: I'm not a professional so if this causes any harm to ANYTHING it's your responsibility.

I put some 2009 C6 Corvette rims on my 1988 C4.

Here is how it turned out:

The front rims are 18" and the rear is 19".

The front requires no modification, you can see the differences in the stock 17" C4 sawblades and the stock C6 rims here:



You lose some width in the front, and the back isn't that much bigger but you need to change the offset.

The offset calculator I used showed I lost 29mm of offset, so I added 30mm spacers:

I got "Adapter - Hub & Wheel Centric Corvette, 5x4.75 70.3 12mm1.5 Studs/nuts 30mm thick"

from http://www.motorsport-tech.com

The spacers bolt right on with no stud modification.

Torque setting from the 1988 C4 book is 80 ft-lbs and you use that on the spacer and new rims. You should retorque after 5 miles, and then after you retorque the spacer, drive ANOTHER 5 miles and retorque the rims.

So that involves taking the rims off an extra time, but the second time checking the torque just takes a few minutes.

Of course, read all directions appropriate to your application from all relevant parties.

Free Vimeo Service STINKS. Especially if you're poor. Your video will be held at gunpoint.

I uploaded a demo reel.

I decided to REPLACE that with a smaller version.

Vimeo showed at the top of the page I was close to my STORAGE limit.

But what they really mean is an upload limit.

So, after I uploaded this MUCH SMALLER video, my original video was no longer viewable. You either get an error message showing the page is unavailable or an error about your upload allowance.

Even though it shows in 'Your Videos' on your account.

That's right, every potential casting director just skipped me for the next actor since my reel got taken offline.

So, to get more UPLOAD bandwidth (NOT STORAGE) I had to pay $9.95 for a month. Which they hide in the fine print. They want you to pay $60 for a year but you CAN buy just one month.

But I wouldn't. Just use Dailymotion probably.

Don't be like me and have your video held at gunpoint due to some fine print.

Terminator 3 Plot Hole

Just thought of this:

Why did Skynet attack as soon as it was brought online?

The drones (HKs) and Terminators (T-1's) appear to be basically almost beta. There's that scene where the little HK is tethered still and not flying on it's own.

So, why not wait until the hardware is further developed willingly by the humans before attacking?

From that moment on, Skynet would have only had more and more advantage by getting smarter, embedding itself in more things, and having better attack capability.

So why not hide and wait?

Oh and by the way, the Blu Ray is down to $6 shipped via Amazon Prime: http://amzn.to/2j4SnKr
